One Year Later: Cathy
Dr. Phil's very first guest reveals how her life has changed since appearing on the show.

One year after appearing on Dr. Phil's very first show for help with her anger and behavior toward her two children, Cathy and her family have made some remarkable changes.

"Welcome back!" exclaims Dr. Phil. "Where is the rest of you?"

"It's gone!" says Cathy.

"My gosh! How much weight have you lost?" asks Dr. Phil.

"Fifty-four pounds," says Cathy.

"It doesn't seem like it's been a year since I [was first] on the show," Cathy explains. "We're all getting along very well. Vincent and Stephanie have become so much closer. I love it."

Cathy goes on to say that when she first saw herself on the show she thought she looked like a "beached whale." A healthy diet and exercise program have helped her to lose more than 50 pounds. "My self-esteem has definitely risen," she says. As for her anger, Cathy explains, "I'm keeping my road rage in check and I make a point not to cuss. Vincent reminds me! There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about the show."
