    Episodes aired:

    1 - June 3
    2 - June 10
    3 weeks off
    3 - July 1
    4 - July 8
    5 - July 15
    3 weeks off
    6 - August 5
    7 - August 12
    8 - August 19

    Seriously I would have preferred if they had just aired this show straight through from June 3 thru July 22 and be done with it. You lose an audience with all this time off. Why not just do an 8 week run help inspire people to workout before the Olympics and have the audience feel good about themselves and ABC instead of being irritated with the stupid scheduling that ABC did.

    Turns out, they were actually telling the truth! WOW! <---both over his transformation AND because ABC didn't sling b.s. in their previews!

    281 lbs in one year is beyond amazing! I liked in the follow up that he gained some weight back, but then changed his behaviors and did some things to make sure he got more physical activity in his day. Very cool that he and his wife are having a baby girl! Amazing how much your life can change in a year!

    Comments about Sally.

    I liked what Chris said about intensity that to be effective do the exercise with intensity and the heart rate monitor is very important as it measures your heart rate much more accurately then working out on the perceived excursion scale. A trainer I know always says "consistency and intensity" will get you to your goals. I see way too many people in the gym reading books and magazines and newspapers on the cardio equipment not going that fast but thinking that they are actually getting a great workout but they are not. It's better than nothing but still I wonder why they bother.

    I know getting 2 to 4 hours of cardio in 6 times a week in incredibly hard but it is not forever; in this shows case 9 months but I figure if you can't always do all of it do what you can as hard as you can.

    While I am glad Sally lost the weight, considering her husband's lack of support I can see her getting back in the 250's quite easily.

    I can imagine that it would be more likely to be over 12 months if season 2 is the example to go by.

    I'm glad. I enjoy this & it gives a good feeling to watch. Great for Sunday nights. Plus missing an episode isn't the end of the world like so many other shows I watch.

    How on earth is Chris going to help 15 people in a year? Obviously, they're going to have to change things a bit since he can't move in with all of them for weeks at a time at the beginning of the process.
