Heavy (2011) s01e04 Episode Script

Travis ~ Lindy

You just ignore it for so long, and you catch glimpses, and you think, "how in the world did you let this happen?" I got divorced, and I've gained 175 pounds.
We get depressed about how we fee dang, mamaw, this is good.
And then we eat more to go with that depression, so we just get more depressed.
I just feel like food is the only thing that loves me anymore.
I don't even know who I am anymore.
He could die in the next few years.
This is a dangerous situation for you.
I think you need to do something about it right now.
That scares me to death.
It's now or never pretty much, for me, I feel like.
I'm ready.
I can do this.
I don't think lindy likes me.
Lindy answers to lindy, and that's it.
Can you give me one more p? I hate being here now.
She's not looking at the cause of her truly even being here.
All I hear is a lot of complaints.
Don't tell me that.
All I see is a lot of defiance.
I'm done.
He wants to make sure he's alive, he's a good father.
Tell him that I'm done.
[Door slams] I'm starting to doubt that.
This is the hardest thing I've ever done in my life ever.
Oh, my God.
How in the world did I turn into this person? This is my fat really fat fat, fat stomach.
I really want this to go away.
It would take away a lot if all this went away.
A lot would go with it.
When I look in the mirror now, I just think, "what the fuck happened to you? How in the world did you let this happen?" If you would have told me when I was young, "at 37, you're going to have two girls, and they're not going to live with you," I would have said, "bullshit.
" You know, I'm living this life.
I don't even know who I am anymore.
I was a teenage mom.
I entered into this relationship that I didn't really want to be in.
And I got divorced after 17 years of marriage, and we've just been in a horrible custody battle.
Throughout my whole marriage, I was always between 130 and 140.
Literally from the minute the divorce papers were, like, filed, I've gained 175 pounds.
I try to cram motherhood into a weekend.
It's not easy.
Can you see why we've been coming here for 20 years? Oh, it's beautiful.
Every pound on me is related to my relationship with my children.
My daughters look at my photos and say, "look how pretty you were here, mom.
"Why can't you look like that again? You're so embarrassing.
" I haven't met your boyfriend yet.
We've talked about 100 times.
How are you? Good.
Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you.
My oldest daughter is so embarrassed by me, so doesn't want me to meet her new boyfriend.
What are y'all doing today? This is about it.
Dang, mamaw, this is good.
Oh, thank you.
One of the hardest things about being a big person, we get depressed about how we feel, and then we eat more to deal with that depression and then get bigger, so we just get more depressed.
That's like a vicious cycle.
As a kid, my mom's idea of a good meal was, like, a candy bar.
So there have always been, like, weight issues.
And when you become an adult, it's all just emotional baggage that you carry with you every day, and it's very, very hard.
It's very hard to deal with.
If I stay the way I am, I'm just going to end up dying, and it's just going to be hard on my family, and I just can't stand the thought of them going through pain because of me.
- I think that's his arm.
- Oh.
I love him so much, and I don't want to be the naggy wife, but it's like when I think about the real possibility that he could die, that scares me to death.
You ready? Catch it.
All right.
I want to be a good dad, and I want to be a good role model for my son, but I can't run.
I get tired very easily.
Donnie, come on.
It's time to go in.
We're going to get some dessert.
I don't know what exactly it is, but I cannot figure out how to help him.
I guess food is the only thing that loves me anymore.
I just feel like I'm constantly in this whirlwind, and I cannot find something to hold onto.
Not a week or two goes by that there's not, like, a phone call while I'm at work where she's really down and really gives me a lot of concern for worry.
I want someone to reteach me how to live and how to not turn to food for depression.
Do you have joint pains or back pains normally? When I wake up in the morning, I can barely move, and my knees are really bad.
There are so many different pathways to eating too much.
Take a big breath in and out for me.
She's a little different than some of the other patients because her weight came on after an event.
She has it timed to a point in her life when she became depressed, but you can see how it's sort of an excuse.
Every day that you let this continue is a day where your health's declining.
Right.
She's the kind of person that has a heart attack or a heart failure or a stroke.
Your risk of just staying at your current weight is pretty high.
You need to reduce the weight.
- Hi, Mr.
Berryhill.
- How you doing? - I'm Dr.
Marvin.
- Hi, Dr.
Marvin.
Nice to meet you.
Travis, he's been obese since childhood.
Big breath in and out.
Now he's in a situation where if he continues to do what he's doing now, he's just not going to live to a normal life expectancy.
I don't think there's any question.
Your body mass index is 63 on today's measurement.
Normal is 20 to 25.
This is a dangerous situation for you.
You really need to find a way to turn this around.
I think you need to do something about it right now.
It's going to be a hard process to be able to go from where I am now to a healthier place, and I know it's going to be probably the hardest thing I've ever done.
I'm just scared of not being the same, and I'm scared of being the same.
If I lose weight, I'll be able to do so much better for my family.
It's now or never pretty much, for me, I feel like.
I've always been grasping at straws and trying to find something.
I am right on the cusp.
I could either go and become healthy again, or I'm going to die.
Starting last night, I just I really couldn't sleep at all.
I was like a bundle of nerves.
I'd be lying if I said, like, backing out didn't cross my mind a couple times.
[Beeping] Hi, lindy.
Welcome.
Hi.
Welcome to beautiful lake Austin.
Hi, I'm Britny.
Oh, nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you.
David.
Nice to meet you.
Hey, nice to meet you too.
I'm Travis.
Travis, all right.
First thing's first What's up? Cell phones do you have any cell phones on you? Yes.
Okay, let me go ahead and get that from you, Travis.
Oh, man.
Taking my cell phone.
I have to take the cell phone.
I know.
A controlled environment means we remove distractions.
Your phone and your wallet.
You have a wallet? My wallet so I can't escape? [Laughs] My first impression of lindy, she's going to be trouble, and she's going to challenge me.
So are we going to get started early in the morning? We're going to get started early.
Is it going to be a long day? A good five, six hours? She's going to definitely try and give me a really hard time.
I can tell that from the beginning.
Do you have your bag with you? - Yeah, it's right over here.
- Okay.
You know, my first thought about Travis was, he really seemed personable.
He seemed like he really wanted it.
Oh, is this your daughter's? - No, it's my son's.
- Your son's.
Yeah, he gave that to me.
Kind of make me choke up.
I found out he had a son and another son on the way.
I want you looking at that every day.
Cool.
I mean, if he doesn't have the motivation now, he'll never have it.
Let me get some love, Travis.
- All right.
- All right? I'll see you bright and early.
- Thanks.
- You're welcome.
She's really perky.
Her name's Britny.
Of course she is.
Damn it.
Good morning.
She says yes when she walks in.
And, Mr.
Travis, good morning.
Let's get a warm-up in.
- Let's move.
Move, move, move.
Here we go.
We paired up these individuals so that they have someone else to relate to, someone else that's going through the same problems that they're dealing with.
- How do y'all feel here? - You're killing me.
You're killing me, treadmill.
[Laughs] When I first started working with Travis, I expected a lot more out of him.
Go straight down, kick your elbows outwards.
It was just a struggle to get him going.
6 you got 20 of these.
7 there you go.
Oh, shoot, my leg slipped.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, what are you feeling? I need a towel.
Each one counts.
You're not just pulling.
You're cracking your Walnut each time.
Travis and lindy, you know, they wanted to be there because they signed up, but they didn't really know what they were getting into.
You're on your knees.
That is really difficult.
Uncomfortable feeling.
I really felt immediate resistance from lindy.
Feel your chest.
Feel your triceps.
- Oh, my God.
- Excellent, come on.
Lindy's giving me a lot of kickback, and she's not working hard enough to be struggling that much.
15 seconds left.
Oh, my God.
I think you're doing this, like, faking this.
19, come on.
Good job.
Good job.
I'm ready to eat right now.
- Halibut and green beans.
- Yum.
- Enjoy.
- Thanks.
Thanks.
First 30 days, they follow a 1,200-calorie to 2,000-calorie meal plan, depending on their height and weight.
Man, how about these portion sizes, huh? This is just really tiny to me.
This is an addiction.
They're addicts.
And going through withdrawals can get ugly.
I think the chef had the busboy cook the fish today.
[Laughter] Oh, my gosh.
I have a feeling that I'm going to die.
How am I going to survive if I don't have the food I need to survive? Quick, quick, quick, quick, quick.
Heel, toe, heel, toe, heel, toe.
Back.
Good.
Come on, you're almost done, Travis.
You're almost done.
First week here, it's been an adjustment.
There's going to be a lot of pain the first week, and they're going to have to get their bodies to where they can do this.
Can you give me one more lap? No.
Yes.
That will be the challenge, getting them to feel okay with hurting and feeling pain.
I don't care if you got to walk it.
Walk it.
Walk it.
There you go.
But still pump those arms.
Walk.
Abs in.
Ribs, abs in, yeah? Oh, God.
Push.
Let's go.
Let's go.
Let's go.
30 seconds down.
You got 30 seconds more.
The first week, there's been some up and downs, of course, emotionally and physically.
Oh, God.
What are you going to tell yourself, baby? When it's hard like this? I don't know.
You don't know why you're here? [Crying] Yes! There is a lot of negativity going on.
I mean, the attitudes are completely down.
I do not like step class.
Well, we're going to learn to dance today, and we're going to love it today.
Very good.
We started off the workout today, I felt the sarcasm was a little extra, but we're working on positivity, so sarcasm isn't positive? You know, one of Travis' biggest arguments is that he's here for his children.
After getting to know Travis a little bit, I'm starting to doubt that.
So you're happy to get through with your workout so you can get home? Yeah, every workout is one more closer to getting home.
What are you going to do to keep what you've learned here? I was thinking about going and getting a couple of cases of ice cream.
Maybe, like, a couple DVDs.
He is saying things to cover up that he's scared of the world.
He's scared of himself.
There you go.
Hands a little bit wider.
- 19.
- Help yourself out on this one.
They have me doing extreme, like, hardcore workouts.
How the [Bleep] Is this right? - This is the easy one.
- 20! Whoo! I miss my family so much.
And I'm starving.
[Sighs heavily] - What's going on, guys? - Hey, y'all.
So let's do a weigh-in.
Come on on the scale here, lindy.
Okay.
280.
Where did you start? Okay.
Yeah.
So 431.
2.
425 today.
That's awesome.
Good job.
[Laughter] Despite their bad attitudes, they're still making progress.
But let's be honest, they're in a controlled environment right now.
If they don't get rid of this negativity by the time they leave, they're not going to make a permanent lifestyle change.
I'm feeling kind of nervous.
A little nauseous, actually.
Daddy.
I missed you so much.
I'm glad I'm here.
This therapy, the purpose for it, is to make sure that you've addressed and resolved every piece of your past.
Um I don't want to talk about this.
It goes too deep? No, it's just no one's business.
Seeing a therapist to me was it was kind of invasive, so I was a little obstinate and kind of an ass during the whole thing.
I don't like bullshit conversation.
Excuse my French.
I want to [Bleep] Go home.
I hate being here now.
I'm so pissed.
I'm sick of all these people.
I'm sick of this place.
Lindy completely confuses me.
- 20.
- 5 more.
She's working really hard, but I'm not sure what's driving her.
Let's make this last one count.
Ah! That's 12.
Come on.
Ever since she saw the psychotherapist, she works out so hard.
Good.
Come on.
Give me 15.
Give me 15.
She'll go to the point to obsession sometimes.
19, 20.
Good job.
[Baby crying] Look at that guy.
The main reason I want to lose weight is just so I can give a better life to my children.
Look at your brother.
That's your bubba.
Oh, he's so cute.
My family is the most important thing to me.
If I stay the way I am, I'm just going to end up dying, and both my sons actually will grow up without a father.
- You are so awesome.
- Thank you.
[Baby sneezes] Ooh, bless you.
So go on toes.
Go into a plank.
What are we feeling? Everything.
Lindy's definitely had great results.
The concern is she's not looking at the cause.
Eight.
There you go, Travis.
Nine.
Ten.
What am I doing? I'm missing the first month of my son's life for what? Five, I know.
Six, you almost did it.
Seven, come on.
Eight, nine, ten.
This is the hardest thing I've ever done in my life ever.
Four more.
Good.
Three, two, one.
You're done.
[Bleep].
Sprint.
Sprint to the end.
Sprint to the end.
Sprint to the end.
Good.
Pull back.
Pull back.
Pull up.
Pull back.
Pull up.
Pull back.
Pull up.
Oh, my God.
Burning up.
Kind of overdid it a little bit.
Just chill out, relax.
I don't think she's wanted to think about why she works so hard.
I mean, I'm fine.
I just need to rest.
She is gung ho right now, but she doesn't have a reason.
My biggest fear is that she's going to hit a wall, and she's going to just go downhill.
[Water splashing] All right, you want to come over to the bar? And stretching.
Bottom line, guys, let's not waste each other's time, okay? I'm here for a purpose.
Britny's here for a purpose.
And our job is to get you guys in shape, healthy.
It's not just working out.
It's a lifestyle change.
What I want to see from y'all is a "whatever it takes" attitude.
Positive.
Positive.
Success right here.
One, two, three.
[Together] Success! One, two, three.
[Together] Success! - Nice and smooth.
- Yes, ma'am.
Finish it out.
Finish it out for me.
Good job.
Three.
Pull it up! I'm not going to be fat anymore.
I am so sick and tired of it.
You know, I'm going to be 40 soon.
No way I'm going into 40 fat and gross.
15, 16.
I just have to change that recorder in my head and start thinking, "okay, I got to do this.
I've got to do this.
" Punch, punch, fake, that's all that fat that's being knocked off right there.
That's all the time we've wasted that's being knocked off.
Let's show Xander blue how to live his life.
Let's show Donovan how to live his life.
Come on.
Let's go.
Punch it.
Same leg.
Same leg.
I'm trying to keep positive from now on, positive.
Just do what I got to do to hurry up and get back to my family.
Pull.
Now control.
Slow down on the last one.
I feel like my body is getting stronger, and I just can't wait to see what these results are going to be.
And squeeze back.
Let's have you step on and check your weight.
Travis, your weight is 415.
Yeah, buddy.
Heading for the 300s.
I haven't been under 400 pounds in, like, seven years.
I think I'm pretty well on the way to that goal.
And, lindy, your weight is 273.
2.
That is awesome.
That means your on the way to being under 250 for the first time in very long time.
Congratulations.
- Don't make me cry.
- That is freakin' awesome.
At the end of the six months, I'm going to be a different human being.
I want to try to lose 20 more pounds while I'm here.
Fingers crossed.
Awesome.
Awesome, team.
- It's a good week.
- Yeah.
Portion control is something that my family's definitely going to have to work on.
Even if we eat healthy, we'd still eat way too much of it.
Exactly.
"It's healthy, so we can eat a lot of it.
" Most people know fast food's bad for them and that vegetables are good for them.
So it's really focusing on behavior change and dealing with the triggers and the temptations.
I was just looking at the brie, because that's another thing I'd do.
Dave and I would sit with a couple bottles of wine and have this.
You know, somebody like lindy, you know, trying to follow a vegetarian lifestyle, a lot of people have the perception that, "vegetarian, okay, that person should be healthy, skinny as a rail.
" So this is, like, 1,000 calories, so if you're splitting it, 500 calories.
100 calories for each glass of wine.
Now you're seeing where it all came from.
So how many cookies would you have in one sitting? Five or six.
So six cookies would be 320 calories, almost an entire meal.
Travis, he's just munching on cookies and, you know, kind of grazing all day long.
For somebody like that, they just have to be away from the temptations, and the family's got to be on board with that.
This would be in our house.
Okay, nine chips for 140 calories.
O you're looking at, like, 800 calories for just chips and salsa.
Which is, like, two meals.
Talk about eating at a Mexican restaurant, before you even get your food, you already consumed, like, 1,000 calories.
And then you're eating a plateful of, like, cheese enchiladas.
Oh, my.
3,000 or 4,000 calories.
Dang.
It was really eye-opening that the majority of my problem is eating out too much.
Basically out to dinner is going to have to stop.
We're both probably doing about 16,000 to 20,000 calories a week going out to eat, and that's gaining about three to five pounds a week.
Basically it's just horrible eating.
It's from my wife.
It says, "I picked the right man to have kids with.
"And don't try to deny it.
They're definitely yours.
Happy father's day.
" When I found out my wife was pregnant, it really struck a chord with me that I really need to do something, because I missed out on so much so many activities that I could be doing with my first son that I really don't want to miss out on that with my second son.
"Just stay focused and keep yourself busy.
I love you so much.
" Two.
Bring those elbows back.
Three.
If everything you're teaching your kids about nutrition and exercise is good, then they'll take that with them.
They're you go, Trav.
30 seconds straight.
30 seconds straight.
I was shown love with food.
My mom, you know, equated love with food.
So I want to make being healthy the easy thing for them.
Come on, Trav.
Come on, Trav.
Now that there's a light at the end of the tunnel, I'm seeing that the stuff I've gained here is, like, immeasurable.
Two, one.
Good job, Trav.
That was a heck of a set.
Now that we're talking about thoughts, you mentioned that you had contemplated suicide.
- It was very matter-of-fact.
It was.
It was just a decision that I made, that I wasn't going to be a burden on my daughters anymore.
My rock bottom was desperate, despair, total darkness.
Your image in your head of this family has been shattered, and your kids are choosing over you.
That's the part that's more deep and personal when your thoughts go to your daughters.
I just feel cheated out of time.
I can't go back and make 'em babies again.
I've got to get better mentally and emotionally and physically.
I mean, if I'm dead, my kids don't have me at all.
This opportunity just cut off the outside world for a little while and focus on me.
It's been a real gift, because the stronger I am when I walk out of here, the stronger I'll be able to fight the battle of the real world when I get out.
Two seconds.
And one.
I think back now, and I think, "I cannot believe I was so sad and so depressed "when all along, I had the power within myself to make this change.
" I'm just going to have to do things for myself right now.
You were at 284.
4.
Let's see where you are today.
257.
8.
26.
6 pounds.
Almost at 30.
I was trying for 30.
You were close.
You got to be proud of yourself.
- Thank y'all very much.
- Good job.
It's been a challenging month.
I think I'm in a lot better place, 180 from where I was before I got here.
I just want to go home strong and remain strong.
I hope I've done good enough.
[Chuckles] Well, let's see what we're going home on.
Okay, so you're at 405.
4.
That's pretty awesome.
Feels really good to have had so much success in this month period.
Definitely ready to go home.
I can't wait to see my kids, man.
So excited to go home.
Just because you've been in a controlled environment for four weeks doesn't mean that you have been cured.
We're still dealing with people that have an addiction.
All right, give me a hug.
- All right.
- Okay.
They're going home and they'll continue to work with trainers in their hometowns.
If they don't continue to make progress at home, they will be returning here.
- Daddy! - Hey! Travis is a strong individual when he wants to be.
Oh, my gosh.
You look so good.
The ability to show his family the right way to live is going to start and end with him.
Hey, buddy.
I'm your dad.
If he doesn't step it up as a man, as a father, that's going to be his biggest downfall.
The only thing that really makes me nervous is falling back into the emotional torment.
Lindy had great results, but at the same time, lindy answers to lindy, and that's it.
The core issue is much deeper emotionally and mentally, and without those problems being faced, she can slide right back to where she was.
Hang in there.
This is the last one.
You got to hang in.
Nope.
You stay in.
You stay in it.
You stay in it.
You stay in it.
Here's your last one.
All the way up.
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze.
And down.
You got it.
You're doing good.
Three more.
Three more.
All you.
All you.
You can do this.
Just last two.
Last two.
I'm home, and, you know, that's been really hard.
[Groaning] I've already got 15 things stacked on top of me that I need to jump in to do right away.
I'm looking for high protein, and the carbs are only nine grams, and there's one gram of fiber.
Last drop.
Okay, last five.
We are planning a wedding.
I'm just overwhelmed with details.
Oh, my God.
Three.
Yeah, show me some of that fire.
Come on.
Four.
Since I got back, the amount of stress that I've had trying to keep my new lifestyle, it's really, really hard.
We don't have any money right now.
I have to find a job.
Are you hungry? [Crying] Okay.
I'll take that as a yes.
I have an infant, and so I don't get a lot of sleep these days.
That's right.
Keep breathing.
Three more.
There's so much stress going on in my life.
It's the hardest thing I've ever done.
All right.
Just not going to let this number get me down.
Oh, yeah.
I mean, it's a starting point.
I'm on my way to the airport to go pick Rynn up.
I'm a little nervous.
Hi! You got crunchy hair.
I know.
It smells good too.
Oh.
It's not just about the weight loss.
It's about rebuilding relationships.
Okay, here's the shoes.
I've always wanted my children to be more part of my life.
Rynn's at a very vulnerable spot.
She's only 13 years old, and she still chooses to live with her dad, which has been really difficult for me.
That coupled with the wedding that's going on, like, I'm trying not to be stressed out.
I think that one's a little Grown up.
[Whispering] I swear to God, I'm having the hardest time keeping my mouth shut.
My daughters, they're such a trigger in my life.
There's a lot of things that just keep entering her life, and she really uses it as an excuse to eat.
Are you all looking for a bride and a groom's cake? I have some for you to taste if you want to try it.
Okay.
Is this on the diet? [Laughter] I'm so excited y'all are here for the tasting.
Come on in.
Okay, thank you.
Lindy is off and on.
I think we'll have to give her a little more time.
Oh, my God.
So good.
But if she continues to go back to those negative responses, then I don't know if she'll be successful.
- Ugh.
- Okay, let's just do it.
Last week we were at 393.
Now we're at 390.
All of three pounds.
Yeah, three pounds is better than gaining a pound.
That's for sure.
You've got a lot to go.
We've got to Ratchet it up, dude.
I think you're holding back on me.
What is going on? I'm I'm not even discussing that.
That's rude.
Yeah, you're going to have to discuss it.
Dude, don't say that.
I'm busting my ass, dude.
Don't tell me I'm holding back.
Don't tell me that.
It's the food.
- I'm done.
- No, you're not done.
I'm done.
Travis has got a family and a life, and he's so busy, when so are everybody else out there.
So are single moms with kids, with jobs, that do work out, and I see that every day at my gym.
I gave you an easy out last week.
I said take a picture of your food and send it, and you wouldn't even do that.
- It's so hard.
- Why won't you do that? - Because it's hard.
- It is not hard.
Click, send.
Do you know what it's like to have a baby? Travis' biggest obstacle is not going to be from his wife.
It's not going to be from his kids.
It's going to be from Travis.
If he continues to make excuses, if he continues to not accept the issues that he has, he's going to fail.
You have no idea how hard my workouts are.
Okay, I'm talking about, like, when you do cardio.
All right, I can do ten more minutes of cardio.
I can do that.
I can do listen to me.
Stop.
Ugh.
I just can't I'm just done.
I'm done.
I'm done with it all.
You can tell them that I'm just [Bleep] Done.
[Door slams] - Hey.
- Hey, ready for the weigh-in? Guess so.
Ready or not, here we go.
I know.
[Sighs] - 254.
- I gained a pound.
Planning for the wedding and all of that was extremely stressful.
Now I definitely know why people hire wedding planners.
That was part of my weight gain that week.
I'm concerned that she went off of her goal.
You know, she said she wasn't going to have any alcohol.
So I want to get to the bottom of this.
So what's been going on with your weight loss? Um, it's not been as fast as I want it to be.
I don't know; I'm working out four or five hours a day, and I feel like I'm not losing weight.
Any, like, times that you've slipped up and maybe splurged? No.
Okay, well, I heard something about a wedding.
Yeah, we were like, "you know what? Let's just have a glass of wine, and let's celebrate.
" And then a glass of wine turned into three bottles.
You know, she's still using food as a reward for herself, and that can be dangerous when you're trying to lose weight or when you have a disordered relationship with food.
I think that's going to be a major improvement for you, is keeping track of portion sizes in your food log.
Not just what you eat, it's how much.
I'm pissed off at myself for letting this happen.
It's coming off.
I will not allow myself to gain weight.
[Groaning] Our house got broken into, and the day after, it rained, and our house got flooded, so we got to get out.
No, not today.
We're not doing this today.
Not doing what? I'm stressed out.
This is not good.
We're moving today.
Don't be stressed.
So you're just you're stressed right now about everything? Well, it's just moving day and, like, just a lot of stuff.
Are you hitting your exact calories every day? Are you writing it down? Um, not I was, but this past week has been so crazy, I've fallen off on that.
Travis struggles with being overwhelmed, maybe, with, you know, work, family, kids.
Therefore he shuts down.
What can you do this week that maybe you didn't do last week, just to do something better, to have a goal? I will log what I eat.
I will do that this week.
There's so many positives that really outweigh the negatives that's going on in my life that when I start to dwell upon the negatives, I need to push that away and I need to think about the positives.
Ooh.
Keep going.
Six.
I think the biggest thing for anybody trying to make a change in their life is just the fear of the change.
[Groaning] Say cheese.
Dieting has probably been my biggest challenge, just being able to not eat what I want to eat.
That's really hard to overcome.
But I have been getting a lot better about that.
I think I've been doing a really good job as far as my meals go.
I know that there's choices and that I have control over my body.
Here's your last one.
You got it.
You got it.
There you go.
You know, I've learned not to give in to the easy way out.
It makes me stronger and makes me realize that I am in control of me.
God dang.
- That's nice.
- Excellent.
That's what we wanted to see, isn't it? Yeah.
I know I'm not done with any of this.
There's definitely room for growth.
I'm just barely getting started.
Okay, here we go.
11 pounds! [Laughter] I have not been this weight for 2 1/2, 3 years.
I'm just looking forward to more of it coming off.
That is fantastic.
11 pounds.
I was so nervous.
Oh, my gosh.
What a week.
I'm really nervous.
You know, I'm hopeful that I'll heal real quickly and be able to get back to my active lifestyle.
It's a whole new lease on life, and this is a step I have to take.
I'm ready.
Lindy, do you take David to have and to hold and to love and to cherish till the day you die? I do.
Okay, by the power invested in me, I now pronounce you both Mr.
and Mrs.
lindy David Coburn.
[Laughter] You may kiss the bride.
[Applause] We really wanted a small, intimate gathering of friends and family.
Thank you all for coming.
We truly do value your friendship and your love.
We just want to have a really nice time and share some memories.
- Enjoy.
- Let's have some fun.
Let me get a picture of you guys.
Very good.
I wanted them both to stand up there with me.
Unfortunately, Maci's babysitting today.
It's really disappointing.
Go eat, and eat lots of it.
I said, "screw it.
I'm going to have fun.
" Take two or three of them.
Eat them.
It's easier to stay moderate throughout, but I have been working out like a crazy person.
Lindy's overcompensating with working out to make up for her food, but life won't always allow that.
There has to be choices made to keep seeing that progress, even with those distractions right there in front of you.
[Breathing heavily] We want to really see if they're ready to go and face the world all by themselves and prove that this was a jump start in the right direction.
Give me two more just like that.
And you got it.
You got it.
Lindy needs to accept lifestyle change, not the quick fix.
That's it.
She may not have time to keep working out so much to make up for what she's lost ground on.
It's been hard for me since I had my surgery.
The expectations have only been put upon myself now.
It's all on me.
[Grunting] [Bleep], this is too heavy for this.
Travis is a very busy guy.
He has to support his family, he has two kids and a wife, but his health needs to be a priority.
Can't just spring that on me, man.
No excuses.
No justifications.
No negativity.
And if he has those issues, throw it out the window, and let's go.
It's hard.
It's the hardest thing I've ever done.
The emotional aspects, the stress of it all, it's just really difficult.
We're going to really need to see, have they really stuck to the program? And numbers don't lie.
At the final weigh-in, we need to see progress.
I won't let all of this hard work go to waste.
No way in hell.
Hi.
Hi.
How are you? Hi, y'all.
- Look at you.
- You're doing good.
Look at you.
Look at your hair and everything.
All right.
How do you feel? I feel great.
I really, really do.
Just all the things that I can do physically and mentally.
Like, it's just been I think that's, like, the biggest thing for me.
When you went home for five months, you know, would you say this has been an easy process? [Laughs] It's been really challenging.
It's been really exciting.
What I really wanted was just something to, like, cpr me back into life, and it really did, so We can see these wonderful things in your beautiful self.
Let's see them in numbers.
And step on.
So, lindy, you were at 284.
6 when you first came.
Today you're at 220.
2.
- Ah-ha! 65 pounds.
Good job.
Good job.
I've learned a lot since I've been here.
I didn't just learn how to lose weight.
I learned how to live again.
What you guys have done for me has just put me on the right path.
All I have to do now is maintain that great pathway.
Oh, man, girl.
Thank you, lindy.
Thank y'all very much.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
I've changed so much in so many ways.
I feel like I did when I was 16 again.
Hey.
Look at this guy.
What's up? Give me some love, man.
How are you doing, man? How are you feeling? Hey.
Hiya.
So do you feel like as you walk around, like, you're a lot more agile and mobile? Yeah, my mobility is way different.
I'm able to do things I've never been able to do.
My wife is happy.
My wife is very happy with how I look.
So, Travis, just want you step on.
Your original weight: 432.
7.
Today we are at 337.
8, which is a total of 94.
9 pounds.
Man, I'm wearing five pounds worth of clothes right now.
Wait, we're shoes? Pants? - Yeah! - Let's do it.
Let's do it.
I want 100 pounds.
That's what I would like too.
You are at 333.
6.
99 pounds.
Yeah! Come on.
Come here.
I had my high points and my low points, and I was making a life change, and that's going to have its stressful moments.
- Congratulations.
- Thank you.
I feel better about myself, more confident.
Look at me.
This is the most rewarding part.
I'm just healthier, and I'm happier.
I'm a different person now.
Welcome to Conn's.
My name's Travis.
Travis, nice to meet you.
What brings you into Conn's today? I sell electronics and appliances and furniture at a retail outlet.
They use the same amount of soap, water, electricity as the front-loaders, except they're still top-loaders.
With this retail place, when I'm not selling, I'm usually moving appliances or furniture around.
I'm always walking.
My weight loss results have increased dramatically.
Before this all started, I was in a bleak place.
I don't know when I would have died, but I was definitely on that path.
Now I'm doing really good.
I feel good.
I'm healthy.
I'm happy.
Losing the weight just gave me the confidence to live my life.
Hey, are you having fun? Well, hi, Mr.
McCoy.
Welcome to my house.
I have invited my ex-husband and his new family to come have Thanksgiving with us.
No, you weren't.
You were in the Navy.
I want to show my daughters that me and dad can be friends.
Before you get going with Wii, I could really use your help.
My relationship with my daughters is evolving into this mutual respect for each other.
Six months ago, I was in horrible shape.
I was at rock bottom and ready to die.
Now I can do anything.
I literally feel like I had one life and I was reborn into another.
Hi! You look amazing.
Oh, you make me cry every time.
I know.
I'm really excited to start living this new life with this new body and my new love and my new family.
It's very exciting.
I just wanna be a good dad.
You know? example.
started.
