Ready to make a splash. Laura Perez heads to water aerobics in her quest to lose 80 more pounds in My 600-lb Life's Wednesday, May 11, episode, as seen in Us Weekly's exclusive sneak peek.
The TLC series' preview clip catches up with Perez, 42, who once weighed in at close to 600 pounds and now is 260 pounds. She hope to lose a bit more weight in order to qualify for skin surgery.
Sadly, her progress has created tension with common-law husband Joey, who got used to assisting Laura when she was heavier.
"Joey gets jealous that I can do things on my own, so he wants to come along to see what I'm up to," she says of him joining her for day-to-day activities.
"He's always trying to take care of me, even when I don't need the help," Laura continues. "That will cause us to argue because I still want to live my own life and not feel like I'm 600 pounds."
Watch her discuss her weight-loss goals in the video above.
My 600-lb Life airs on TLC Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET.
