S07.E03: Robin's Story LIVE CHAT

Recommended Posts

Quote

Robin and her brother Chris are both obese and already lost a sibling to obesity.  They plan to visit Dr. Now together when Chris suffers a stroke and can't go. However, Chris' son Garrett, already 600 lbs. at 20, may join the journey with his aunt.

This is the LIVE CHAT thread for Robin's Story.  It will open during the US East Coast showing. 

It's a potential two-fer, or three-fer!  It's a family that had the potential to be on Family by the Ton.  Will they succeed? Will they fail?  Will we snark? Yes, we will.

Pounders, What do we do? We avoid discussing how money is being snatched from the public's wallet for the participants unless it’s specifically revealed on the show. Anything else is pure speculation not to mention also a slippery slope toward talking politics.

Hey'all doin'?! 

My eating habit tonight was scrambled eggs and whole wheat toast (folded into a taco-like configuration), and water with a splash of tart cherry juice. I will probably have some hot cocoa for dessert, and/or maybe some salted caramel yogurt.

(And ugh, "Sister Wives" was a Jeopardy clue tonight. I'm sure we will see some ads for it. Ugh.)

Okay, let's do this!

Hi Pounders! How are you y'all doing tonight? I can only stay for a half hour tonight! Stupid meetings! But I'll snark for a while. My meeting is at a pizza place. Dr Now would not approve.

Hi all!  I am having split pea soup, a pear and some chocolates. 

This one looks like she will be a whiner!

Welcome! 

Her legs look like they're at a weird angle. That looks painful. 

Why do they all have these little toilet cubbies?

Yup, season 7, toilet shots are necessary in their contracts. And all toilets are tiny

Oh no!  the obligatory bathroom shot occurs.  why do TPTB feel it necessary to show these folks actually using the toilet?

OK, she can't have knee replacement, I assume, because of the weight & anesthesia, etc., but why can't she have the shots? My 88 yr old  mother gets those 2x a year and is fine.

Ask builders why they keep making them that way.

Jack Sprat he ate no fat,
his wife she ate no lean.

I’m a sick person. This show makes me hungry. But it does make me know I will NEVER get a tattoo.

She was just sitting on the lid. Not using the toilet like last week.

Hello my lovelies! Can it be that we could pull a hat trick tonight and have another poundticipant really make an effort and have a measure of success? We'll see.

My eating habit tonight is roasted chicken and potatoes, and okra and tomatoes.

They’re in such a small space it really doesn’t matter at this point whether or not they are actually using them. The imagination takes over.

Those hands are huge.  OK, now here's the trip to the grocery and all the stares and the comments about the stares.  We get it.

Probably wouldn't do much if anything for her...

We had that last night minus the okra. We had asparagus. Hubby would not be pleased if okra showed up on the table.

She loves going to the supermarket. 

Cut to supermarket, where she whinges and cries about how everyone stares at her. 

Bet me.
