Looking on the site I am a bit surprised no one has talked about this show in particular. Now for those of you who don’t know about this show it is a multi-documentary series depicting several individuals in their journey to lose their excess weight (kind of similar to Biggest Loser). However unlike Biggest Loser these people have gone beyond a threshold and have got themselves to a point that their weight is now creating serious problems for them; such as excess eating/constant hunger, limited mobility to immobility, lymphedema growths, even the risk of obstacles beyond the patients’ control interfering.
Personally I find this show as an important series showing how weight gain, while is something we do have a desire for, can get out of hand and even turn dangerous. It is due to this show that while I like reading literature or playing games with weight content that reach some of the weights featured in the show, that having someone going through it in real life is a terrifying prospect as their own bodies turn against them (preventing total weight loss or keeping them hungry all the time). However I can see some people who can watch the show and feel annoyed as the pounds are falling off (it doesn’t happen all the time, some patients are real “jerks” depending on which point of the journey they are on).
Now I know that this is a place to improve content related to weight gain and other associated fetish acts (like vore or inflation), yet why aren’t people discussing this show and how some of the patients have got to the point they are at now. So the question is how do you feel about this show, do you root for them to lose the weight to be at a healthy weight or are disappointed in them losing what makes them… unique (maybe not the best term, but every patient so far have different weights and body shapes)?
Also sorry if the topic offends anyone, was not the intent when making it.
