I was so happy for Ashley that she made steps to get away from them and out on her own. Maybe I rooted for her a little more because she looks an awful lot like a cousin of mine (she's very slender, their faces are very similar).

    Not even done with last night's episode, but balling here. It's amazing to see how pain drives people to gain weight and how important is to resolve it.

    carido - 6 times a week for 2 to 4 hrs a day

    If she follows the program she will use 3000 - 3500 calories a day resulting in a 1lb of fat loss a day.

    Re: Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition

    Watched most of the Nyla episode which is number 5 and aired on July 15, 2012.

    In one sense this episode is hard to watch because you, as a viewer, are very frustrated and angry at Nyla for not taking full advantage of this goldern opportunity.

    Then on the other hand this episode is a perfect example that being extremely overweight is not simply a matter of will power and being lazy. This episode shows that many obsese people are that way because of deep emotional issuses and that they use food as a coping mechanism to hide their hurt and until that emotional issue is dealt with the struggle with losing weight is very difficult as we have seen during this episode.

    What was interesting about Nyla's episode and it has been mentioned before that Chris and the show reimburse the participant up to $100 a week for groceries if the food they buy is the food they should be eating. Wow, how great is that. Nyla's tantrum over how expensive eating clean not processed food was rather fun to watch. I know when I go grocery shopping that processed stuff is expensive and can cost me more than fruits and veggies. Premade stuff costs more. Yes, shopping organic can be tricky. Buying veggies and fruits in season is very helpful. For me and I think for many others grocery shopping is a pain; I want to stay out of the store so I am not tempted by the wrong foods. I honestly think the food part of any diet/lifestyle change is much harder than the fitness component. Eating right is a major component to losing weight and maintaining it as Chris mentioned during the Phase 2 weight in. If Nyla had just stuck to the food plan she would have lost 48lbs on that alone just based on the math. I am glad that Nyla mentioned she does not drink, smoke or do drugs she does food and that is not an addiction that you can quit because you will die if you quit eating. That is why I think food addicition is one of the most difficult addictions.

    Weight Chart - Showing goals for each phase and what actual weight was lost.

    Time Goal Wt lbs lost Weight total lbs lost
    Start 135 435 435 N/A
    Phase 1 100 74 361 74
    Phase 2 70 20 341 94
    Phase 3 200's 38 303 132
    Phase 4 N/A 25 278 157

    Start weight 435lbs
    Over weight 300lbs
    Goal weight 135lbs

    Phase 1 - Chris concerned that Nyla doesn't get the nutrition part of the process. She is sneak eating and sabotaging herself. Misses goal by 26lbs.
    Phase 2 - Nyla thinks eating clean is too expensive even with Chris reimbursing her $100 per week, starts to eat processed foods. Misses goal by 50lbs.
    Phase 3 - no goal given, just to get into the 200's. Almost reaches the 200's and weights in at 303lbs. Chris gives Nyla a package with her birth Dad's info. He died in 2010 at age 53. He committed suicide after his wife died. Nyla meets her father's side of the family and finds out that he always wanted to reconnect with her but was afraid he would be rejected. Nyla felt the same way. The reunion gives her some closure to her issue of abandonment.
    Phase 4 - Nyla is doing well until she has an issue with her back. Slipped disc pressing on the sciatica nerve. Bed rest for about 2 to 4 weeks and limited activity for the next 2 to 4 weeks. Chris is concerned that this setback may derail Nyla's progress.

    Re: Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition

    I found this to be a very powerful episode. During the part where Nyla reconnected with her dad's family, I totally forgot I was watching a weight-loss show. TV trumps up so many "tearjerker" moments, but this one was for real.

    Also real was the fact that Nyla had more work to do once the year was over. I LOVE that she's teaching a class--she has great moves and seems so happy when she's leading them.

    She is a very complex, intelligent woman who had some serious strikes against her. I hope she continues to succeed.
