Title: Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition
Post by: Prophet on May 09, 2011, 03:50:35 PM
An interesting show I've heard about...

Trainer Chris Powell will guide participants in a one-year journey as they undergo a transformation of their bodies and who they are.

Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition is a unique undertaking that's unlike anything you've ever seen TV. The show documents the amazing makeover of eight courageous, obese individuals who set out to safely lose half of their body weight over the course of a year. The metamorphosis is truly amazing.

Trainer/transformation specialist Chris Powell (The 650-Pound Virgin) guides each of the eight participants through the process after moving into their homes. He's there to make sure the participants get the proper nourishment and exercise movement. Chris provides a fresh perspective to individuals whose lives have become unmanageable because of their weight.

In each of the eight one-hour episodes, participants undergo a transformation not only of their bodies, but of who they are as individuals. Each stand-alone episode of Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition chronicles one participant's journey. The eight remarkable individuals attempting an astonishing one-year weight loss are:

* Alex, 23, an All-American kid who, at 459 pounds, wants to get healthy to set a good example for his two teen brothers.

* Dana, 44, a bachelor weighing 497 pounds who prays for the day he will have a family to share his life.

* James, 26, a former football star whose weight ballooned to 651 pounds and who now wonders if his dream of having a career in sports will ever come true.

* Krista, 34, a devoted mother whose care for her developmentally-disabled daughter has taken a tremendous toll on her 445-pound body.

* LaRhonda, 24, a young woman who weighs 433 pounds and remembers being put on her first diet at age 8 because she weighed over 100 pounds.

* Rachel, 21, a first grade teacher and former homecoming queen who weighs 369 pounds.

* Staci, 30, a 456-pound married mom caring for her husband and their two young children, while doing her best to keep a positive outlook.

* Wally, 26, a young father who weighs 490 pounds and whose wife is uncertain if her husband will be around to see their daughter grow up.

Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition premieres MONDAY, MAY 30 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC. You won't believe what a difference a year makes!

It is an inspiring show. I always wonder with the weight these people carry, is it safe for them to do the exercise that they are required to do after being inactive for so long. At least they are given a year to lose the pounds which should be safer and longer lasting.
