Christina is an obese teenager who is committed to losing 70 pounds by prom. On this episode, a tough trainer drops by to help Christina and her family get into shape. But the father-daughter workout makes her rethink her relationship with her dad.
Those who struggle with their weight and eating often realize that the issues that contributed to their weight gain can run deep and may involve family members who have unknowingly enabled the dysfunctional behavior.
This is the same kind of dynamic that Christina is being forced to work through: The further along she travels on her weight loss journey, the more she attempts to make sense of how the personalities around her have played a role in her weight gain.
For those who are unfamiliar with Christina’s Story, each Friday Rachael checks in with the teen to see how her weight loss has progressed during the week. Fans can also be a part of the online community where they can share their stories and offer support.
