    S07.E16 Lashanta's Story

    Yes, that's what she wrote. Probably life partner; doubt she and Bertha would be business partners, but you never know. Here they are in a recent photo.
  2. I too have only known Cilla as a woman's name, but thought this one might be Cillas as an alternate spelling of the man's name Silas. 😕 ✌️ Edit to add: According to the schedule currently posted on TLC's site for this coming Wednesday April 24, the episode is indeed "Cillas' Story" : https://www.tlc.com/schedule

    Yeah, me too. LaShanta has several photos of her mother on her FB page (username Shine White) looking nothing like the lady in scrubs we saw during her episode. In one photo Bertha appears with another middle-aged woman identified by LaShanta as her mother's 'potna' which I figure must be 'partner'. 😯

    Has anyone had a look at Google's home page today? Happy Easter to all the pounders! 😎

    I thought of that immediately, too -- timpano ! 😎

    I didn't think it was a wig either, because it looked like hair coloring growing out. But, then I found a photo on Facebook of LaShanta's mother wearing it. 😮 Maybe she has her own. . . .
  7. I've always figured the poundticipants' tattoos were several years old, obtained during earlier times of better mobility.

    Her daughter lives in New Orleans, according to LaShanta, and no we did not see her. Though I must admit that at first, I mistook her youngest son for her daughter. [I thought he looked like a girl.]

    She was sleeping and didn't hear the phone ring? The battery was dead? She was on another call at the time, and did not check who was the incoming caller? She had the phone turned off, or on do-not-disturb?

    You know, I wonder how LaShanta was able to drop out of school at age 14. In every state the upper mandatory school age is at least 16; in Louisiana it's 18. Source: NCSL. I've searched online for exceptions due to pregnancy but have found none. Hmmm.

    About her being proud, well, it's all relative. After being in bed for 2.5 years, leaving the house at all is a big achievement. I agree with the rest -- I tended to dislike LaShanta, and found the episode uninteresting and pointless. But I do hope she will build on the bit of progress she made at the end, for her own sake and for her family's.

    But LaShanta rallied at the end, and managed a base hit in the ninth inning. She finally lost weight on her own, and was going to proceed to weight loss surgery after relearning to stand and walk in physical therapy. That's true, I agree with this. And the show has to give all sorts of people a chance, not just the most intelligent with the best educations. But for the people who are obviously slower/less educated, they really need to give more training in the beginning (that poundticipants' boot camp) to understand what they must and must not do with their eating habits, and why. So many of them really seem not to understand that they can't compensate for some bad meals by working out with their hand weights, for example. I agree; LaShanta seems to enjoy burrowing her hands into the folds on her legs, and the camera liked to show it. I haven't found this season boring at all, although I did find LaShanta boring. To me she did not have much personality and was not a good choice for the show. I have found most of the episodes interesting, even when I did not like the poundticipant. There have been just a few failures so far this season, although several of the successes have needed three or four tries before they got with the program, really lost weight, and had their surgery. However, some of the successes may not be uplifting, and if we don't like the patients, such as because they tell lies and make excuses in the early months, then we may not be rooting for them. Here is the breakdown to the best of my recollection: Success: 1 - Octavia 2- Brianne 3 - Robin & Garrett 4 - Justin 5 - Holly 6 - Lacey 7 - Brandon 9 - Tiffany 10 - Destinee 12 - Aaron 13 - Kelly (made very good progress until her heart gave out) 14 - Annjeanette 16 - LaShanta (11th hour turn-around) Failure: 8 - Maja 11 - Jeanne 15 - Angela

    S07.E15: Angela's Story

    Angela stated that she had made arrangements for Lacey's care so that she (Angela) would be able to spend time in Houston as needed, but that later on, the arrangement fell through. But who knows what that arrangement was, if it should have been considered reliable, or even if it existed at all.

    Not me. I did have to log back in, but did not need to reset my password. I then updated my password manager for the new URL for the login page, and think I'm all set.
