my husband and i watched this show last night (heavy, one episode). both of us have put on a lot of weight since we started dating, and as our relationship grew, so did we. anyway, it was a really interesting show, seeing those people struggle because of their weight gain. i like the part (like in all other shows) the revelation at the end, where they show that they have lost weight. it is a really big motivator for me.

What an excellent program. I stayed up past my bedtime because I was so captivated by Jodi & Tom. This show is going to help A LOT of people! I'm still thinking about it today and was glad to see this thread.

I hope Jodi (who has posted here -- "hello!!") achieves her goals! She & Tom are beautiful people and deserve all the happiness in the world! It was great to see Jodi get on stage and perform -- also to see that she seems to have some really cool brothers who support her.

How sweet that Jodi set up a double-date with Tom and her friend -- that made viewers like me happy. .

One of the worst feelings in the world is lonlieness and when a person is in "a prison" (a dangerously overweight body!) as Tom described it -- it's even worse.

Just watched! Terrific first episode! I wonder if they'll do a follow up show to wrap up the season; a sort of where-are-they-now? That's a lot of pressure though.

Jodi, you're so brave! Your personality was awesome and I'm not at all surprised you were chosen to participate based on that. The camera really likes you.

It was a nice break from the yelling of Biggest Loser. And I liked seeing 2 journeys in one night. I hope they do check in with them as the season progresses. What a relief it must have been for Tom to have that growth removed!

I really enjoyed the show. It was great to see them deal with weight loss and real life at the same time. Jodi, you were great! Congrats on your success, especially with all the extra stress going on in your personal life.

They have the full episode on the A&E website. No ads and no need to wait for reruns.

I absolutely loved the show!! I loved how, especially with Jodi (HI JODY!), we see that as the pounds are lost, a lot of "dead weight" in other areas of our lives starts to become apparent and can be dealt with.

Jodi, you are a pixie! Full of fire, beautiful on the inside and out, and you are just rocking with your bad self!!!! Thanks for the inspiration!

Pwah! Tell me about it! My new divorce has nothing to do with my weight loss, but the confidence I have to be able to go through with it has everything to do with my weight loss!

Loved it! I hope Jodi pops in here again! I knew she was in Houston by the skyline and I wished I could be her friend!
