I'm with just a few other posters on this but I really like Destinee and I thought this was a good episode. Destinee struggled to get with Dr. Now's program but I was shocked when surgery day came how great she looked. Losing 100+ pounds had really changed her body. Even at her heaviest, she was probably the most self-sufficient and physically capable participant I've seen at over 650 pounds.
I couldn't believe it when Dr. Now sent Destinee for therapy and she muttered something like, "I wouldn't have anything to talk to a therapist about".... Is there anybody with more to tell a therapist? Just her truly tragic childhood in foster care, the rejection she suffered from her father, her brother dying in her arms, her wanting to "join" her dead brother, being bullied, rejected, or denied opportunities because of her sexuality/gender transition, etc., etc., etc. What a brutal life she has lived. I'm amazed she is alive. Many people with a childhood like hers are already dead of a drug overdose by her age. In a way, she was lucky she went to food as her addiction because it bought her a little more time than if she had turned to drugs. This was also the first time I was super impressed with Lola. I think she was exactly the right therapist for Destinee.
How often have we heard participants on this show talk about wanting to get a job?! Not often. Not often at all. I hope Destinee continues to do well. I wish for all good things coming her way.
