    'Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition's' Wally Lang discusses his food addiction - National weight loss | Examiner.com

    Last night's Extreme Makeover Weight-Loss Edition featuring Wally Lang bravely showed that weight-loss reality TV isn't all sunshine and celery sticks -- sometimes the "stunning transformation" doesn't happen in time.

    Lang, a 27-year-old Chicago husband and father, struggles mightily with food addiction, and try as he may, trainer Chris Powell couldn't break him of the lure.

    But while Powell dropped him as a client, he hasn't dropped him as a friend. Today on Twitter, Powell tweeted, "Keep fighting the good fight, Wally. One day at a time. We love you bro!"

    Lang also has created a public Facebook page (facebook.com/wallysjourney) where you can keep up with his progress, ask questions and write notes of encouragement. Already, more than 500 people have "liked" the page.

    When last we saw Lang, he had checked himself into Insight Psychological Center, an outpatient eating disorder treatment facility. Today he was on Windy City Live on Chicago ABC affiliate WLS discussing his journey with Dr. Susan McClanahan, a co-director of the center.

    Staci, 456 pound in-home nurse, is the subject of the "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition" debuting on Monday, July 18, 201T at 10:00 p.m. ET on ABC Television Network. The series documents the struggles and victories of the seriously obese, helped by trainer and transformation specialist. Chris Powell.

    Working mother Staci, 32, has been battling her weight for over 20 years. Staci is a mother to two young daughters and employed as a full-time in-home nurse. Staci also takes care of her husband, who lost the use of the left side of his body after suffering a stroke. Staci is a woman with a lot of responsibility.

    At 456 pounds, Staci is the largest female that transformation specialist Chris Powell has worked with in his career. Committed to getting healthy, Staci goes on a year-long journey to lose half her weight and become healthier for herself and her family.

    Chris Powell takes Staci to get a dose of what firefighters go through in their training and work. Staci puts on the heavy firefighter gear and carries a weight up into a 130 degree staircase, but the challenge may be too much. For the first time, Chris Powell fears that he may have pushed a client too far.

    Re: Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition

    ABC has two new weight loss shows. I like the idea of Revolution which is for women who only have 50 to 100lbs to lose.



    While season 12 of NBC's The Biggest Loser has already started filming, there are two other weight-loss shows looking for participants on ABC.

    Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition, already a hit among diet show fans with its dramatic success stories, is looking for participants who want to have their lives transformed over the course of a year. To apply, you need to have at least 200 pounds to lose.

    Download the application, make a videotape and send the whole thing to:
    Eyeworks Television
    Attn. Extreme Makeover WLE Casting
    3650 Redondo Beach Ave.
    Redondo Beach, CA 90278

    For more information, email the production company at extremeweightlosscasting@gmail .com. Include your name, age, brief story, height, weight, contact number and photo.

    Don't have that much to lose? The new ABC daytime show The Revolution, is looking for women with 50-100 pounds to lose.

    The show, from the producers of The Biggest Loser, is looking for women who are "ready to drop the weight and regain control of their lives," the casting call says.

    The show will provide participants with a trainer and a nutrition plan to help women lose the weight at home.


    The Revolution, which is slated to premiere in January and stars Tim Gunn, Kimberley Locke and Harley Pasternak, is having casting calls around the country:

    Detroit: Saturday, June 18, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
    Skate World, 2825 E. Maple Road, Troy, MI

    New York: Friday, June 24, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
    Sutton Place, 1015 Second Ave, New York, NY

    Los Angeles: Saturday, June 25, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
    Citadel Outlets, 100 Citadel Drive, near Nike Outlet, Los Angeles, CA

    If you can't get to a casting call, you can download an application and submit a videotape. To audition, email revcasting@gmail.com. Please include your city and state in the subject line of your email. In the email, include your name, age, height, weight, marital status, a photo of yourself, city you reside in, and contact phone number. And in 250 words or less, please include a brief bio on who you are, your story and why you want to lose the weight.

    Oh my goodness! I was crying all through the show. That poor man...nearly unbelievable how much he went through during that year. It was almost TOO much drama for me...

    I hope all the good stuff at the end was real, as it appeared to be...new home, engaged to a supportive woman, etc.

    It's good that he got out of the restaurant business. One of the Biggest Loser winners kept his deli, and gained back all the weight that he had lost. Tony's previous girlfriend wasn't ready to lose weight... but Tony was.
