Lisa Fleming, who appeared on the TLC reality series “My 600-Lb. Life,” died Thursday. She was 50.

“I am truly at a loss for words right now. God knows I wanted you to hold on until I got here but He knew what was best for me. I didn’t need to see you like that!” wrote Fleming’s daughter, Danielle, on her Facebook page. “This morning I sat and held your hand for 4 hours knowing nothing I could’ve done would bring you back to me. Anybody who knows me knows I gave my mother my ALL! She was my world and I was her #NumberOneGirl Mommy, I love you from here to the stars and back! Those babies loved you even more. I’m happy you’re no longer in pain and stuck in that bed. Y’all pray for me, check on me, come see about me because I am not ok! I love my mama & I wouldn’t wish this pain on my worse enemy. Rest In Peace, Mother Arleasher M. Fleming!”

According to TMZ, Danielle said her mother’s death had nothing to do with her weight. She said Lisa had lost 200 pounds after she was on the show. She said Lisa was sick before she came on the TLC show, and eventually succumbed to various illnesses.

Lisa was featured on Season 6 of “My 600-Lb Life” back in February.

Fleming is the second “My 600-Lb Life” star who has died this month. James “L.B.” Bonner was found dead on Aug. 2, according to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department in South Carolina. He was 30.
