Just saw an episode of this show and wondered if any of you had seen it? The show profiled 2 women who had lost weight and then went back to confront people in their lives who had shamed them when they were overweight. They basically set up elaborate hoaxes to try to turn the tables on their "fat-haters." I guess the confrontations were supposed to be the final step in their healing after all of the years of feeling unhealthy and unloved.
Although I totally understand the desire to have a triumphant last word after the weight has been lost, for me, the best revenge would be to live well and enjoy my new life. One woman confronted her mother, and I can understand the need to try and change an existing relationship in order for it to move forward in a healthier way. However, another story involved a girl confronting her ex-boyfriend with whom she has no further contact with. To me, that seemed unnecessary and petty. If you really are more confident and embarking on a new life, than there is no need to waste another minute on people from your past who once made you feel worthless.
I just felt like the show has a negative premise, and didn't inspire people to lose weight for health and self esteem, but rather for revenge. I wonder how many of the participants will keep the weight off if their motivation was so petty and external?
What is your opinion?
