Did You See the Penny Saeger Episode on My 600Lb Life?



Recommended Posts

I saw a re-run of an episode from Season 2 of My 600lb Life...(yes, I secretly watch this show...) Even though I know I will never experience the kinds of monthly losses that most people experience on that show, it really did inspire me in May to start my own salvation journey with weight loss--again--for about the millionth time.

I watched the Penny Saeger episode with almost the same fixated attention one would give to a speeding train about to crash. And I wondered if anyone else saw this episode and had any thoughts about it?

Penny Saeger Update



I just watched this clip. And i used to coupon and i stopped bc there r rarely ever coupons for healthy food. The occasional salad bag coupon or yogurt. But other than that...its frozen meals n chicken nuggets. As i started to get into a healthier life style i left couponing behind. If i see a good coupon occasionally for healthy options ill use it but other than that ..nope.
Its sad bc her husband seems to want to help and she isnt allowing it

I put it on when i'm walking laps....somehow seeing those visceral images of the pain and stress of severe obesity gives me the gumption to finish my daily exercise goal.

And I love Dr. Now. Like...really love him and want to adjust my "eating habit" to make him proud. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

It's a brutal reminder that the struggle is real and we didn't just end up at our highest weights by accident. :(

Here's my new universal advice to us all--MOST ESPECIALLY me...

"Don't penny your golden shot at WLS."

(Here a reddit update on Penny.)

Oh ok then! I saw it! LOL!!! I watched that, then I think it's called Family by the Ton? About the family who are all MO and who are trying to get a handle on it and their lives? Then saw the Penny show. I don't know how I missed it from Season 2. Needless to say, I woke up very motivated to travel the straight and narrow path and own my own misbehaviors!!!
