Anyone going to watch this? It starts tonight.
"DietTribe" is Lifetime's new reality series that follows the emotional journey of five friends as they attempt to go from "fat" to "fit." These women have made a commitment to lose their unwanted pounds together. With the help of professional fitness trainer Jessie Pavelka and psychotherapist Stacy Kaiser (of "Celebrity Fit Club" fame), each woman will change her eating and exercise habits over the course of three months and confront the issues that caused her to gain weight initially.
Close friends Anna Lloyd (30, Pasadena, California), Lydia Moody (26, Los Angeles), Megan Stewart (29, Anaheim, California), Shawna McClellan (27, Anaheim, California) and Morgan Lancaster (31, Monrovia, California) have stuck together through thick and thin, sharing a strong bond that has lasted for many years. In recent months, they have come face-to-face with an uncomfortable truth — that their lifestyles and their friendship have resulted in unhealthy weight gains. In "DietTribe," each woman has her own reason for wanting to lose weight, but all have one common goal: to look their very best at Anna's upcoming wedding.
Over the course of 90 days, Anna, Lydia, Megan, Shawna and Morgan will try to turn their poor habits into healthy choices by attempting to lose 30 pounds or more with the help of their trainer and therapist. Through the course of the five-episode series, cameras follow the tight-knit group as they deal with real-life temptations, struggle to stay on track through the toughest workouts of their lives and face the scale each week to see how far they have come both mentally and physically.
