Early Life

Amber Rachdi was born on the 22nd of June 1990, in Portland, Oregon. Born and raised in Portland, Amber had troubles with her weight from a young age. By the time Amber was five years of age, she weighed more than 160 pounds. When Amber was 23 years of age, she was told that she wouldn’t live to see past 30, unless she did something about her weight.

From a young age, Amber was unable to carry most of her weight on her legs. Not only was she unable to stand for more than 30-minutes at a time, but she also couldn’t shower and avoided leaving the house at all costs. Even if she did, she had to use a motor scooter. Due to her weight, Amber could not get behind the steering wheel of a motor car, and could not support herself.

Getting to My 600lb life

Mixed experiences

After leaving My 600lb Life, Amber was given a chance to feature in the spin-off ‘My 600-lb Life: Where Are They Now?’. But Amber declined the offer, citing a bad experience with the producers. In a detailed interview, Amber revealed that she wasn’t comfortable around the camera. She later stated that one of the producers even threatened to cancel the surgery if she didn’t comply.
