THE STYLE NETWORK FOLLOWS DIFFERENT FAMILIES ON THEIR CHALLENGING JOURNEYS
TO TRANSFORM THEIR BODIES IN NEW SERIES “OUR BIG FAT WEIGHT LOSS STORY,”
BEGINNING SATURDAY, JANUARY 14 AT 12 NOON ET/PT
The Style Network’s new series “Our Big Fat Weight Loss Story” explores the complicated, desperate and triumphant journey that different families undertake in their pursuit to be healthy and fit. Beginning Saturday, January 14 at 12 noon ET/PT, two episodes will air back-to-back, introducing viewers to misguided and overwhelmed parents and their overweight children whose happiness and lives are threatened by their obesity.
Each of the series’ stand-alone episodes will follow one family determined to make positive and permanent lifestyle changes, from a single mother who is too exhausted to refuse her son his diet of cookies and chips, to a boy and his once-sick father who bond over movie popcorn and fast food, to an overweight mother and her teenage daughter who is bullied mercilessly by her classmates for her weight. Aided by experts’ advice on nutrition, fitness, health and self-esteem, parents must admit and take responsibility for contributing to their family’s overall bad choices while their kids must understand the life-long health implications if they don’t choose to become more active and lose the weight. For the parents, the most difficult part of this journey is taking back control of their weight and their eating habits, but the stakes are too high for everyone in the family if they are unable to resolve their issues and overcome the obstacles.
“Our Big Fat Weight Loss Story” airs Saturday from 12 noon to 2:00pm ET/PT, beginning January 14 on Style.
