Kirstie Alley is determined to lose more weight so she can fit into a a€?22 incha€? waist dress. The star, who has battled with her fluctuating size for years, has credited her continuing weight loss to sticking with the gruelling dance routines she had to master on the TV talent show – on which she and her professional dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy came second behind NFL player Hines Ward and dancer Kym Johnson. Media That Matters - From the serious to the hilarious, we share stories that rise to the top. Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition has undergone its own makeover for its third season, which begins Tuesday, May 28. Chris Powell, described as a “transformational specialist” and author of the brisk-selling book, Choose to Lose: Lose More for Life, accompanied 15 willing participants on their journey from fat to thin. Morbidly obese when they began the program, the participants were expected to lose half their body weight over a 365-day period.
Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition surprised a lot of people and became a surprise hit with viewers when it first aired, in no small part because of its positive, life-affirming message.


As with a lot of summer programming, Extreme Weight Loss looks as if it requires a substantial time commitment, but it doesn’t really.
The opener revolves around David and Rebecca, twins who didn’t think much about their weight as they grew up in Wisconsin farm country. Powell decides early on that the best way to work with them is to separate them, which is traumatic at first for two people who’ve come to rely on a mirror reflection of themselves from early childhood.
And then there’s this, from Gilligan’s Island creator Sherwood Schwartz: “There’s a lot of underlying philosophy to the characters on Gilligan’s Island.
My first TV memory was of being menaced by a Dalek on Doctor Who — the original, scratchy, black-and-white Who.
I was there to witness "the new dawn of the sitcom" in the mid-1990s, followed — inevitably — by the glut of terrible sitcoms in the early naughts, a glut that led, directly and indirectly, to the rise of reality TV. It’s now called Extreme Weight Loss, which sounds dangerous, if one is to believe what nutritionists and fitness experts keep saying.
The emphasis is on losing weight safely and for those following at home as well as those participating in the program, there are lessons to be learned along the way about good eating habits, getting proper exercise and, most importantly, shedding weight in such a way that it stays off.
It’s not about sitting in front of the TV and laughing at the people on the screen — it’s not The Bachelorette, in other words — but rather about seeing real people learn a little something about themselves and grow to accept who they are. There’s no reason to think that will change just because the title has been made shorter and sexier. Beginning Tuesday, it will run in two-hour segments for 13 weeks, but each two-hour segment is a standalone episode that focuses on one overweight person’s weight-loss journey, from beginning to end.


Now, David, who tops out at 470 pounds, or 213 kgs, and Rebecca, who weighs 398 pounds (180 kgs) realize their weight is starting to affect their lives. Seeing how Powell addresses that issue and seeing whether the twins pick up on his cues, is reason alone to give Extreme Weight Loss a chance. They’re really a metaphor for the nations of the world, and their purpose was to show how nations have to get along together . David confesses he always wanted to go through Navy SEAL training, to show his father he’s a man. Or, if you prefer, TV is a metaphor for the nations of the world, and Gilligan’s Island was really a message about why we don’t all get along. Powell works with them, and soon realizes that as with many overweight people, they used food as relief from stress, in their case, a difficult upbringing and unhappy childhood was the source of their anxiety. Powell, instead of pointing out the absurdity of a 400-pound adult thinking he could be fit enough to serve in an elite military unit, puts him through a training regimen that first emphasizes mental toughness.
They enabled each other in their bad decisions about eating, and quickly learned to mask their pain behind a facade of cheerfulness and bonhomie.
