What Happened To Lisa Fleming From My 600-Lb Life

In August 2018, TMZ reported that Lisa Fleming had died at the age of 50 in her home in Texas. She was featured on Season 6, Episode 7 of “My 600-lb Life” (via IMDb). The episode aired in February 2018 — just a few months before her passing. At the start of the episode, viewers learned that she weighed over 700 pounds and was bedridden. Fleming, whose first name was Arleasher, was living with her daughters, Mica and Danielle Fleming, and her five grandkids at the start of her weight loss journey. In an on-camera interview, she shared that “it’s a struggle every day because my life is confined to this bed.”

It is revealed during the Fleming-focused episode that, similar to other patients of Dr. Now, childhood trauma played a key factor in her excess eating. In interviews, she reflected on her mother, who used food as both a source of love and punishment. She also admitted her overeating became more severe following the deaths of her parents. Fleming was shown butting heads with Dr. Now and nutritional therapist Jennifer Doctorovich during the Season 6 episode, too.

Through it all, Fleming’s family was with her to the end. Her official cause of death is unknown. In a statement reported by TMZ, Danielle shared, “At the end she was sick, and her body was tired, and her body just gave out.”
