Jeepers anyone watching oprah!!! A guy on it weighed 1000 pounds then lost the whole lot..... so was in the record books as the heaviest man on the planet and then as the man who lost the most weight ever in the shortest amount of time ever...... ONLY to gain it all again!!! It is so shocking! Just shows you that yo yo dieting doesnt work..

I was watching it earlier, saw Kirstie Alley on it!

Kirstie alley came across like a total nut head but really funny! Its so sad tho but great to see that man losing the weight sensibly now and hopefully he will stick to it.... Arent we all the same. He hit his target weight and went out for a hot dog to celebrate... 1 became 4 and then he ended up starting the weight gain immediately again. We are all the same we use food and alcohol in reaction to different emotions like drinks to celebrate/drowning our sorrows, going for a meal to treat ourselves for achieving something/ comfort food in bad times!!!

The worst part of this is that its not like you can give up food, you have to eat to live, so its such a huge lifestyle adjustment for people. He seems very positive about life though, very inspiring!
