Lee and Rena from My 600 Lb Life are planning their wedding

Lee and Rena from My 600 Lb Life aren’t just losing hundreds of pounds thanks to their participation on the show — they’re also building a stronger relationship than they’ve ever had before. In fact, according to Lee, wedding bells are in the couple’s future.

As we wrote following the first half of their two-part episode, the Season 6 couple have been increasing their public updates of late, and sharing a bit more about exactly how much weight they lost by the time the episode had finished filming. Now, in a new interview with Newsweek, Lee has gone even farther, saying that he and Rena have never been in a better place, and are ready to make things permanent.

“[Being on the show] was a great experience and it saved my life,” Lee said, adding, “I’m ready for the next year ahead and skin surgery when I’m ready for it.”

As for their wedding day, Lee and Rena from My 600 Lb Life don’t have a date picked out yet, though they’ve got happiness and newfound confidence in spades. “We will be together until death do us part!” said Lee. “Our relationship has definitely improved. We can do stuff for ourselves more and don’t have to rely as much on others.” He further added that marriage is in he and Rena’s “near future.”

(One thing Lee didn’t mention specifically was the that they’ve now lost so much weight that they can finally have sex for the first time in their eleven years together. Which definitely can’t hurt the couple’s attitude toward marriage.)

Shortly before the debut of their episode’s second half, Lee and Rena took to their official Facebook page to share a meme celebrating the jaw-dropping 574 pounds they’ve lost between the two of them. Considering they were over 1300 pounds as a couple, the accomplishment is no small feat:

It sounds like Lee and Rena from My 600 Lb Life are in a happy and healthy place. Hopefully the extra attention they get from My 600 Lb Life fans — and detractors — won’t dissuade them as they continue to shed pounds and find love.

My 600 Lb Life Season 6 airs Wednesday nights at 8 on TLC.
