TV Shows About Weight Loss



Recommended Posts

Does anyone here watch Weight Loss TV shows for inspiration? There is a new one called Family By The Ton on TLC and it's great. It reminds me of my family. Does it remind anyone else of theirs? Also, it takes place in Atlanta! Anyone else here live in Atlanta area?

I've seen "The Biggest Loser" & "My 600-Pound Life". Both make me ugly cry so I don't watch them. If you gain inspiration from them, go for it!

I love My 600 Pound Life. I put reruns on when I need inspiration to keep walking and get my steps in.

I don't watch 600 lb life, started to with family member (cousin) who announced Gee they look just like you! I'm barely 1/2 that size but haven't watched it since. Why do people who should,love and support you act in this manner? Maybe I should,have been born with a hard protective shell like a turtle.

Katkatlady... I’d say they are jealous of what you are doing and are your sabotagers... I love the show but don’t get that channel anymore... I love seeing how they went through bad news but came out winners... don’t let those people keep you from being inspired...

Katkatlady612... That sounds like a horrible, hurtful comment your cousin made. :( I'm sorry. I sometimes watch "Extreme Weight Loss" or "Fit to Fat to Fit Again." I find those both inspiring and the Fit to Fat to Fit show is interesting because personal fitness trainers purposely gain 40 - 70 lbs then have to work along side their "clients" to lose it and get fit again. The other day my husband happened to flip to "My 600 lb Life" and then I had to listen to him say, "Oh my gosh..." "Oh geez..." And just moaning and groaning as he watched the people on tv. Mind you, my husband is 6'4" and 200 lbs. He is totally tall, lean, and fit. He has never had a weight problem and he does not understand how complicated the struggle is. I said, "Why are you watching this??" I asked him to just change the channel and to stop watching because he just doesn't understand. It made me teary eyed to listen to his judgemental reactions and groans. (No, it is not easy going down this road with a husband who is skeptical of the process and thinks this time will be no different ,or that if it's just going to make me eat less then I should save myself the time, money, and pain and just eat less and move more). Like you, I do not have a tough turtle shell and my personal weight struggles and issues run deep.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
