Sharon's life has been marked with tragedy. After losing her mother she gained 100 pounds, after her son took his life, she gained another 60. Now, 47 years old and 366 pounds, Sharon knows she must do something about her weight, or her family may lose her next. Ashley weighed more than 230 pounds by the time she graduated from high school. Between her troubled childhood and party lifestyle, she has eaten her way to nearly 300 pounds. Ashley's tired of being "ugly, fat and unhealthy" and knows that now's the time she must get her life back if she's going to get married and start the family she's always wanted.
