The Journey Continues for Teens at Renowned Weight-Loss Boarding School Wellspring Academy in North Carolina as They Aspire to Reach Their Ultimate Weight Goals
It’s a new semester at Wellspring, and both new and returning students arrive to a series of shocks and disappointments at their first weigh-ins. Two years ago, Tanisha weighed 510 pounds, and since then, she has worked extremely hard to lose more than 200 pounds. But when she discovers that she lost no weight over the break, Tanisha finds herself spiraling into a depression, worrying that she will never reach her goal. Carsyn feels that her difficulties with her family is holding her back from staying with the program, and Hayley, who initially weighed in at 511 pounds, is relieved to learn she lost weight – despite not working out. Wellspring also welcomes new students Ashley, who at 409 pounds is desperate to be thinner, and Caroline, who confesses that her mom had to put a padlock on the fridge to curb her overeating.
The series documents the incredible journeys of a group of obese teens as they bravely fight emotional and physical hurdles to drop hundreds of life-threatening pounds. The Style Network’s inspirational docu-series “Too Fat for 15: Fighting Back” continues its second season when new episodes return Wednesday, October 19 at 8:00pm ET/PT.
