Thomas is busy cleaning out junk food from his cabinets and refrigerator.
"Thomas, what have you got there?" Dr. Phil asks.
"Thomas, it's a bad thing when you start fondling your food," Dr. Phil says.
But changes are already happening in Thomas' kitchen. "I've got some pretty good stuff in here," Thomas tells Dr. Phil pointing to his refrigerator. "I've got a lot of fruit in here and some yogurt."
Thomas also follows Dr. Phil's suggestion to "burn the bridges" behind him, by discarding all of his "fat clothes." "I want you to get rid of everything that is bigger than you are now so you have nowhere to go," he tells Thomas.
"Oh, no, not at all," says Terri.
"Children learn what they live," says Dr. Phil. "The things we enjoy are learned behaviors. You've taught him what to like by feeding him certain things." Dr. Phil continues with advice for how Terry can help her son, who's 60 pounds overweight.
"How much would it have meant to you if someone had stepped into your life and worked this problem out when you were 10?" Dr. Phil asks Terri.
"We definitely have changed the environment in this house," says Kim. "All those fattening foods are gone," which prevents her from indulging after a difficult day.
"Oh, my God," she says. "That's why I want so badly for him to get it."
"The amount of weight that I have lost so far is amazing because I don't feel that I've had to work very hard," says Kim. "It was basically changing a few things in my head and changing physical things around me. When you're at the supermarket, don't buy it. It's that simple. I used to feed my family a ton of macaroni and cheese and chicken fingers. My dogs have lost weight. Everything is getting lighter and slimmer."
Kim takes her no-fail environment outside of the house and on to the dance floor. At parties, instead of focusing on the food, now she spends time dancing.
"I feel wonderful," says Kim.
Dr. Phil asks Kim to stand so everyone can see how much weight she's lost.
Dr. Phil tells the challengers: "I want people be able to look at you — not just your size and shape, but I want them to look at you and see that you're behaving differently — you're acting differently, you're reacting differently to your environment."
Angela has a great way to avoid visiting drive-through fast food restaurants: "Put your cash in your purse and put your purse in the trunk of the car," she instructs.
Now he takes a new route to work.
"I pass up all the fast food stuff," he says. "This area is more forest preserved and it stops me from a having to go past those places and make those choices."
