  1. Hello,

    My name is Genghis and I’ve been big all my life. I’m 42 years old, height 6’2 and weighing 400 lbs. I am diabetic, high blood and my blood test is not good. I am taking 6 pills a day on top of my insulin injections. I am a walking time Bombay and would love to prove to myself, my family and everyone that even how sick I am that change can still be possible. I need assistance and someone to point me to the right direction. I feel that there are many things I still want to do in my life but feel a prisoner in my body. Thank you

  2. Hello I'm kayleigh and I'm 26 years old, I've always been over weight and I've battled with my weight for years, I've been with my partner nearly 5 years now and we have two beautiful children together and are engaged. My other half is the type who can eat and eat and not gain any weigh me on the other hand I'm the complete opposite. I've tried so many diets and I've each time I end up putting the weight back on I'm at my heaviest now and I'm so unhappy I'm not setting a date to get married untill I've lost weight. I want to be able to keep up with my children and take them to the beach or swimming with out being embarrassed at the moment I avoid it all together and they loose out. I need help I need someone to help motivated me I want to feel like me again.

  3. Hi there. My name is Eric, im 36, im 6'2", and almost 400 lbs. I have never really considered my weight an issue untill i had children. This year was the first year i was able to take my kids to Worlds of Fun; this is when i noticed i was truly overweight and it was embarrasing that i had to leave the ride because i could not get the safety bar down. I have tried diets, eating right. Eventually I end up breaking and going back to bad habits. I would love someone to show me how to eat the right way. How to excercise correctly and help me build my confidence. My confidence is truly broke. I think that is my biggest hurdle to get over

  4. Good Morning,
    My name is Charron, I am 40 years old married with 2 girls ages 10 and 4. I am a little embarrassed to list my weight but definitely need to loose 50% of my weight. I have tried everything and can loose but always gain it back so I know I have the ability to loose just can't seem to change my lifestyle completely. I change it for a short period of time until I think I lost enough (which I am not even close) and then go back. I want to be healthy for myself as well as my family. I was recently diagnosed with Lupus and know that if I loose the weight and get healthy it will help my diagnosis. My also main motivation is my daughter who was diagnosed with Leukemia when she was 3. She is in full remission but I need to be around for her and fight for where I should be physically and emotionally. If she can beat cancer, I should be able to beat my weight demons and be there for her. I have had depression in the past and can't help but think all of my issues are related to my weight and self esteem. I would love to have the opportunity to work with a team who knows how to get me in the right mind set and loose the weight for good. On another note, I have never done this before so not sure if I shared too much or not enough. Hoping I am considered for an upcoming season!!

  5. Hi my name is Stacey and I am currently 30 pounds (give or take a few) overweight. However, I am not just interested in transforming my life, but my daughters as well. This Friday she will be turning 18 and is well over 50 pounds above her ideal weight. We have been through so many struggles in life, and while our struggles don't define who we are, they have had a negative impact on our personal selves. I recently got divorced and gained a significant amount of weight, while trying to overcome the stress of that situation. My daughter has also felt the impact of my situation. I feel so bad for her, because her weight issues have taken a toll on her esteem and her health. Both her and I have health issues, some of which can easily be fixed with a life transformation, significant weight loss, and some intervention from someone who can see us for who we truly are, without negative opinions and degrading comments. I am not usually the type to beg for help from anyone, but I am desperately seeking assistance to help us change our lives and create new beginnings.

  6. I am wanting to put myself through the extreme make over weight loss edition as I now weigh 345lbs. I am 5’8” and have 2 children. I am always so tired and I continually have to tell our daughter that I’m too tired to play when in reality I really want to play. Plus we have a son who has some medical issues since birth that has really stressed me out & as a result I have let myself go even more with the stress. I am desperate to find someone to push me beyond what I think I am capable of. I want to lose 120lbs at least! I need to do this not only for myself but for my family so I can be around to enjoy them grow and be there to support them!

  7. Hey there, I'm Crystal from North Carolina. I'm 21 years old and I currently weigh over 300lbs at 5'4". All of my life I've been overweight and most of it I've been trying to lose it with some fad diet that eventually fails. I'm not the person that has a sad backstory and I'm not that large person who has low self-esteem either. I'm that person that needs guidance, encouragement, and challenge to grow entirely. It would be life changing if you took me into consideration. I would work hard and prove my true strength. Thank you for your time.

  8. Hi my name is Pita, I've been struggling with weight problems my whole life. I've been bullied and made fun of for being bigger than normal, I am 23 years of age and weigh close to 240 KGS this opportunity save my life I have nothing left to lose besides the kgs

  9. Hi Chris. My name is Missy and I am writing to nominate my husband, Scott. Scott is a 20-year retired Navy musician. He has been retired for only 3 years, and he currently weighs 300 lbs. When Scott retired from the Navy, he immediately got a job as an elementary music teacher. On his way to work one morning, he was sitting at a bus stop in his truck and was rear-ended by a woman who was texting at 60 mph. He was pushed into oncoming traffic and crushed in his truck. They had to pry him out with jaws of life and then Scott was airlifted to the hospital. He had 2 broken legs, a broken arm, broken ribs, broken hip, burst spleen, and a cracked scapula. He died twice that day at the hospital. After nine months of physical therapy, he was able to walk again. Scott is an incredible man, but he has put on an enormous amount of weight and I am worried about him. Can you help this Navy veteran get his life back?

  11. My name is Niki, I am a single mom of two young boys. I want to become a state trooper for the state of GA. However I can't even run a block, and they are asking that you run a mile and half. Plenty of people in my family are overweight and don't want to do anything about it. I'm sure that weight loss surgery is okay, but its not what I want to do with my body or my self esteem. I am currently trying to stop smoking with the help of my doctor. I want to be a role model for my kids and I want to be healthy for them as well as myself. I want to change my life style so I can be a better parent as well as a better person. Please don't mistake that I believe skinny is better, or that I can't be happy with my size. I want to be able to do more with my kids as well as try out to be a state trooper while I still have the chance. I want to be able to chase my kids around and not be out of breath after running for 5 minutes.

  12. Hello My Name Is Jessica Yale. I am 35 5'5 205lbs. I grew up in a mentally abusive home and in April 2018 I ended a mentally and physically abusive marriage. I am a mom full time of my 7yr old daughter which is my world . I have no family so she really is my everything . I have worked hard to set a good example owning my own salon and spa for 9yrs and also work as a real estate agent. But my body is working against me it was almost inevitable that diabetes would be an issue that I would be facing which could ultimately threaten my time that I have enjoying life with my daughter. And high blood pressure has also stuck at nasty little head up in my life. And I have found myself being depressed like in confidence that I need to put myself back out there and being people's faces with both of my businesses has become hard . I need help desperately to change the path of my life to ensure that I'm healthy and will be around for many years to come for my daughter and myself . Mentally and physically. I need to rebuild my confidence which was stolen after having my husband I love so much tell me I was unattractive after we had only been married two years things just went downhill for another eight. I tried several times to exercise in between being a mom wife own into businesses it was just hard I took all my energy I could just to keep things maintain as I was spiraling down into depression finding myself thinking comfort in food. I need this for myself I want this for myself and my daughter to change my life to prove to my husband that beauty is on the inside . I would like to prove to him that he did not tear me all the way down that I got back up got back to that body I had before when we first started dating was going to the gym exercising and all the responsibilities of adulthood in the domesticated life Philip on me she couldn't find time for myself but now I realize it's causing me health problems .Feel super alone in this. I need a Major life change.

  13. I can’t fix myself on my own. I don’t feel strong enough, I can’t seem to let myself know I deserve more than this. I sabotage all aspects of my life but somewhere inside me I know I want a better life for me. I know it’s eat healthy and move more but I just don’t do it. Today I came in from work, I ate a microwave sausage muffin, a share bag of M&Ms the big bag you usually find at the cinema, two cream cakes and 3 cans of fizzy then I satbavk and didn’t feel like I had eaten I thought about looking for more food. I tell myself I don’t look massively overweight, I’m 5’2” weigh 14.5 stone and wear a size 18 to 20 but I still tellmyself I don’t look that big. My weight is holding back so many aspects of my life but I can’t let go of the weight, I can’t let go of the eating habits, I can’t treat myself properly and I let other people treat me bad too. I’m tired of being the joke, the person who jokes about herself to hide how much it actually hurts. I’m tired of all the excuses, I can’t listen to myself anymore I have an excuse for everything. I’ve brought my children up single handed, they are 20 and 22 now and I am still young 41 I have s whole life ahead of me. I know they want me to do well to be healthy. They love me and I want to make them proud of me. No one believes I will lose this weight and I need to believe myself. There’s only me who can do this and I feel if I had some support and guidance I could make it happen.

  14. My name is Emily, I am 16 years old, 6ft tall, and currently weigh over 300 pounds. I am a junior in high school and I am struggling. When I look at my future, I don’t want to see myself how I do now. I don’t want to see a girl who is shy and too afraid to talk. I don’t want to be ashamed of myself anymore! I don’t want to feel like I need to hide from the world because of my weight. I’ve tried to loose weight on my own, but it results in me gaining what I loose plus some. So I ended up just giving up on dieting and everyday exercise. I feel like I have nothing to keep me going, nothing to give me motivation to loose this burden of weight. While I know I’m not the only person to have these struggles, I feel alone in mine. My family has no idea of how I feel about myself, because I feel that they will not support me. On top of how I feel about myself, health issues are a huge problem in my family. I already struggle with a couple health problems that I have to take medications for, but I can stop them if I loose weight. Diabetes runs strong on both sides of my family, while I don’t have it yet, I am borderline diabetic, which can also be reversed. What amazes me is seeing all of these other people losing these tremendous amounts of weight, and I think, I wish I could do that. But then I think, can I do that? I want to. I really want to.

I need help to get my weight and eating under control before, I have heath problems. HEPL ME please

  17. My name is crystal. Im about to turn 23. Ive had 3 children and my oldest is 3. I have back problems that have effected me being able to provide correctly and be the parent i want to be again for my children. I feel that my weight is the cause of the problems i have.I dont have confidence in myself. I was always bullied in school.And plenty of times ive been told that id be so beautiful if i could just lose the weight. Ive always been a big girl because i turned to food when i was bored or when thibgs were going wrong in my life growing up. I had my last child in march 2018. She passed away 22 days later in april 2018. I got married the begginning of juneand then he left end of july. As a human it is so difficult to keep your mind on track and not turn to food or give in to depression. Many thoughts have ran through my mind that if i was skinny or prettier my husband would have wanted me or possibly one of these days somebody new but not many guys seem to be into me which also make me get discouraged. My main reason for wantibg to lose this weight is for my children that i still have. They deserve much more then what ive been able to give them. I want to work a steady good paying job and be able to take my kids to events/activities yet my back is preventing that because of my weight. I want to live a long life a healthy life and this would be the place to start! I need this opportunity for my children and mostly for myself.

  18. Please view my daughters video diary. It broke my heart to hear this heartfelt message. If only she receives support from similar people in the same situation then that would be amazing. thank you.

  20. Hi my name is Porchia Wardlow and I am 25 years old. I am 5”3 and I weigh 387 pounds. I have been struggling with my weight all my life but I had a real low point when I was 16. I was kidnapped and raped and after that I felt ugly and useless so I turned to food to make me feel better about myself and it just got out of control. Because I felt like If I was Big it would never happen to me again. But in the last 4 years I have found someone to change my mind that I fell in love with and had a baby with and even got married. I would love for you to help me lose this weight not just for me but for my family so I can live long enough to see my son grow And show him how to love someone. Please come to Kalamazoo Michigan and help me with your weight loss program:

    1. Hey porchia,
      Your message really touched me. I can relate to you on so many levels. I had a rough childhood. I was able to heal for the most part but food remained a huge part of my habit to coping with the stress and pain. I'm so proud of you already and asking for help is the first step to us getting healthy and having a fresh start. Congratulations on the family. I hope we get to meet and start this journey together(:

  23. My husband is only 31 years old. We have a 1.5 year old. And another one very close on the way. My husband is 5"6 and is pushing 290. He is very out of shape, has horrible eating habits regardless if i make healthy food for him or not he over eats. And eats everything and anything without taking in consideration portion control. He doesnt workout. And complains of how hot it is out or im so tierd just from walking. Im 36 weeks pregnant and dont complain about it being hot or exhausted from taking a walk. I would really like it if my husband could be able to run around with our son and not be so out of shape or winded. Im scared he wont be around for as long as he should be. If he doesn't start dieting. Or doing something to get his life back.

  24. My name is Jessica and I am 37 years old. I have struggled with being overweight my entire life. I am 5'6 and my current weight is around 265lbs. I have gained about 40 of that over the past year. I don't feel good about myself and avoid social settings as much as possible. I want to do this for myself so that I can live my best life. I feel like I have missed out on so much over the years by being overweight and it would mean the world to me to prove to myself that I can do this. I believe it would improve every aspect of my life and give me the tools to help other people achieve their weight loss goals.

  25. Hi my name is Kirsten Rutherford and I'm 25 years old and I'm obese! I got diagnosed with fibromyalgia after the birth of my 2 year old son and I'm so unhealthy and unhappy!

I have tried so many diets and failed! I hooe to get this chance to save my life and to see my little boy grow up! I feel as if my fibromyalgia would lessen or even go away if I lose this weight! Hope to hear back please thank you! X

  27. I'm a 30 year old stay at home mom with a military husband. I have 2 young children ages almost 2 and the other is 3 months old. I am embarrassed for my family. I want to be able to chase my sons and play with them without getting winded. I want to lose this weight so when I go to a social event with my husband I dont feel like the odd one out.

  28. Hello,
    I am a 49 year old female. I am a dedicated mother, daughter and wife. My life has been on a spiral down every since our home went under water in
    August 2016. We lost everything, no one in my neighborhood had flood insurance because we not located in a flood zone. My husband lost his job, I couldn't work for
    2 months. The day of the flood was the same day we were having my only child (daughter) baby shower for our first grandchild, which was cancelled due to the flood, to top that off, due to my daughter stressing, she went in early labor that day. Her husband had to rush her to the hospital, which she had emergency surgery, but my husband and I couldn't be there due to having to be rescued, taken to shelter, couldn't get out of our town for 2 days and all cell phone lines went down. I did not know if I had my first grandchild or did not see her until 2 days later, which I had to catch a ride to the hospital because we lost our vehicles and all baby gifts in the flood. When I was able to go back to my current employer to work, without consideration they sent me out of state for a year to work, my husband stressed and left me for several months(we back together now), I didn't know what to do. I borrowed some money to repair the home, which wasn't enough and I had to start living off of credit cards. My home still not complete due to lack of funds. The state program which receive federal funds to help homeowners has refused me stating due to me getting a loan which wasn't enough to complete my home. I appealed my case and was still denied. I start getting behind on my obligations due to extra bills I've inherited due to the flood. My husband is working but isn't making close to what he qualify for or use to make. My company had a big layoff, which included me, so I haven't worked in 5 months. Due to so much stress, I've gain so much weight (about 30 to 40 pounds-200 lbs). I'm concern about my Health, Stressed, Depressed and need something positive to happen in my life to bring my motivation back up. I also want to be healthy to be here for my Husband, daughter, elderly mother (father deceased) and grand child. I will be so Appreciative to receive help.

  29. I am a 36 year old stay at home Mom. I have bounced between 165 lbs and 220 lbs most my life. I recently hit 285. At 5'4" that's a lot of extra weight. I used to work out regularly but stopped after having my son. I have always had bad eating habits but working out kept me feeling good even when I was 220 lbs. I'm not so much concerned about how I look as I am about how I feel and being healthy. I would also like to learn how to prepare healthy foods for my little family. My Mom was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. It got me thinking about my health and the fact that being overweight put me at a high risk for multiple health issues including cancer. I would love the opportunity to work with a trainer and dietitian.

  30. Hi Chris,
    My son came to me a said, mom I desperately need to make a change. I mentioned You and the extreme weight loss show years ago to him but he wasn't ready. Things have changed due to his girlfriend of several years breaking up with him and the doctor telling him that he's 400lbs. The doctor told him that he was a candidate for gastric bypass. My son said, mom that won't work for someone like me. He said, "I'm a food junkie." I have an addiction to food that comes from emotional issues. I understand where he's coming from. We both related to the fact that we grew up associating food with love.
    Brian has a heart that makes the Sahara desert look like a grain of sand next to it. The young man has struggled because of it. He's very talented and has been composing music since he was 6 years old. He also placed high and won and coached many debate winners at high school and college levels. When I watched him debate in Washington DC he wasn't afraid to wear shorts and a tee-shirt with a guitar and lyrics to debate against 3 piece suites talking 440 words a minute. Brian will be 26 years old in December. He nor I want him to die from obesity complications and a broken heart. I believe that he would make a great coach himself from a successful weight loss journey with Chris Powell. This will initiate the transformation and snowball affect to something even bigger. It has always been my dream for 10 years that my son would be on the show and fully engaged. Last week was the first time my son has embraced the idea and would be willing to do what it takes.

    BTW… I have a terrible copy of one of the shows on my I-phone. It's the one that shows the Marathon in Paris. That was put on my bucket list back then when the show first aired. Finally at 53 years, I'm training myself and can do 14 miles so far. I too have weight loss goals too. I probably had one of the worst years ever last year. This is what has kept me going along with the wisdom of Chis and Heidi Powell. Will you please help my son to help himself? He wants it and I pray for it!

  32. Hi Chris and Heidi,I desperately need your help. I am 51 and I weigh 260 and at 5'3 that ain't good. I've tried so many diets that I'm a walking joke now. I had a mild heart attack while I was driving in 2017. I would like to go on a date and get married before I expire. I just can't get myself in gear. I joined a gym and enjoyed working out but I was so embarrassed that I'd let myself go and gained so much weight that I just didn't go back. I love lifting weights but now I'm just intimidated and stuck in my creation.

  33. I just turned 50 and have never felt worse or weighed more than I do today. I am 6'3" and with 470 pounds. I feel like a failure because I've set such a bad example for my 2 sons.

  36. Hello Chris Powell.am Grace from Kenya.I have been following up on your program 'extreme weight loss'for quite some time now and am honored and happy to say that you are really doing a fantastic job.Secondly Chris I really and desperately need your help.my reason for that is that a couple of years ago my mum found out that she started having health issues due to her weight. So she started her weight loss journey back in 2013.I would join her whenever I wasn't in school.I thought things would be better but things got worse due to her health issues.my mum passed away late November 2015.I got depressed since being the first born girl in a family of five, (four girls and one boy)I had to act like a mother to them and I only seeked my comfort through food and alcohol.My Dad saw how serious one was to be fit and healthy to avoid such health related diseases. So my dad made sure that we would work out everyday. I remember my previous weight before my mum died was 89 kg. After my mum passed away I gained 10 KGS.while working out with my dad I managed to loose 7 kg.about a year later my dad started having health issues too.and he died early last year on February. My siblings and I didn't expect any of that.My brother and I had to act as parents and all that led me to depression.I seeked comfort from food.I would eat and eat and just eat.I have gained so much weight.I now weigh 150 KGS and the weight just keeps increasing. I just hope and pray and wish too that you get to choose me and come to my rescue. It will mean a lot to me.

  37. I am looking to improve my health. My bmi is 45+%. I want to lose at least 150 lbs. I weigh 295 and I have trouble walking because of this weight. I want to be thin again. Please help this thin person trapped in the hugh body.

  39. Hi. My name is Samantha. I have struggled with my weight all my life. It wasn't until I had a surgery to remove a 20 pound tumor 5 years ago that my weight got out of had. I recently weighted in at 300lbs. I have started work out programs but nothing seems to be working. My weight is now affecting my ability to have children. I need to do something soon. I have always done for others before doing for myself. I feel it is time to take care of myself. I need your help desperately.

  40. I have been heavy since the date of my conception. At six weeks old, the pediatrician told my mom I was gaining weight too fast. At 36 I had a light bulb moment and the next day I joined a gym and began deep research into nutrition. Over the course of 16 months I dropped 180 pounds. I felt and looked amazing and kept the lifestyle going for over 16 years.

    About 6 years ago there was a reorganization at work and I began working for one of the most unpleasant women I've ever encountered. While I kept up my daily workouts, my eating habits became sketchy and I was starting to gain a bit of weight. Then my father became sick and I had to balance the stress of misery at work along with the stress of being there for my dad. Everything went to pot.

    I eventually gave up working out because I was simply depleted physically and emotionally. There was absolutely no time or solace for me so I gifted myself that 60-75 minutes in the morning for recovery. My weight began to balloon and I've gained back 150 of the 180 pounds I lost.

    The final blow came recently when I was fired from my job because of my weight. Though that was not the reason I was given, my boss was verbal about me sitting while onsite at events I was producing. I didn't sit during the events but during the load-in and strike, I was always physically working but would sit when I could…I also did this when I was thin.

    I know I am a marketable executive and so want to lose the weight again. When I started my last job I was at my most fit, running the equivalent of a marathon every week — (2) 10 mile runs and (1) 6 mile run a week with kickboxing, spinning, step classes and (3) days of weight training on the other days. I was a machine and felt amazing. I never thought I would return to where I am and while I try to keep my fit habits up, the firing has really taken the last bit of wind out of me.

    To have finally tasted (no pun intended) normalcy and then to let it go is something I struggle to overcome. Though I did it once, I was 18 years younger and I fear I won't have the stamina or determination to do it again.

    I'm single and have never been married. Even when I was thinner, though I did receive interest from men, I was never really able to cope with it and I'll just admit it…I have no game. I've got so many walls up to prevent myself from being ridiculed or hurt (who would want me?) that I've missed out on creating my own family and developing a relationship with a life partner.

    My father is much better now thankfully and though I'm upset about the termination, I recognize that I've received an amazing gift of time. I want to use this time, while I look toward my next career move, to get back in shape. I need help this time and I'm hoping you can provide it.

    Thank you and thanks for what you do for your clients. It's such a fulfilling world you get to live in every day.
