          "My Fight with Food is Ruining My Life"

          December 30, 2014

          Teachers Candi and Lyndsey say their friendship began when they met at a table of decadent treats at their school — and they’ve been packing on the pounds together ever since. Then, Kate says she doesn’t deserve the fairytale wedding she has been dreaming of — or the love of her husband — until she loses weight. And, former fitness model Nicole says she has gone from one extreme to another in the weight spectrum and hates what she looks like now. How can these guests finally get off the weight loss rollercoaster and find a return to health?

          More than 16 million kids in the United States are at risk for hunger each day. Fortunately, you can help. Visit Feeding America to find your local food bank. And, help Dr. Phil raise enough money for 10 million meals. Donate today!

          Enabling Friends

          Teachers Candi and Lyndsey say they have a mutual love of food and the same sense of humor about their weight. They say their friendship began at a table of treats and then blossomed over margaritas, but they’re finally ready to stop sabotaging each other’s weight loss efforts and start making permanent change. 

          Dr. Phil looks behind Candi and Lyndsey’s humor and finds pain.

          Feeling Unworthy

          Kate says she and her husband had a small wedding that was planned in three days, and although they decided to have their fairytale wedding at a later date, she doesn’t believe she deserves it until she loses weight.

          Why does Kate say she feels unworthy of the happiness that comes with being healthy?
