Curtis is a great husband and father. He adores his 3 beautiful daughters, and wants to be around to watch them grow into beautiful women. His father died at the age of 52 due to heart failure and Curtis does not want to head down that same path. Although he was raised in a rough neighborhood as a child, his family kept him out of trouble and into books. He was Student Body President in high school and played varsity football his sophomore year. He was always a pudgy kid. Although he was hurt by fat jokes and name calling, he became competitive and used it as a tool to be successful. He will not settle and accept the fact that he is overweight. Curtis is going to change his life today.
These college sweethearts have packed on the pounds since they've been together. Curtis is definitely the more sensitive one of the two, while Mallory is the rock of the relationship. As close as their relationship is, they admit to ignoring the real problem…their weight. Curtis and Mallory realize they have been ignorant about obesity throughout their marriage and with 3 daughters this lifestyle must change.
Mallory is the head of the household. She is a no nonsense kind of woman who tells it like it is. She grew up in a house where fast food was not an option. Her mom cooked dinner and eating out was few and far between. Once she started dating Curtis, it was fast food galore. Mallory is a leader. She will be a force to be reckoned with in a competitive setting.
