She was the first person to be featured in the show. After undergoing an impressive weight loss, Morris went on to become a public speaker to inspire others with her journey.

While she struggled to become a mother in 2010, when she was at the top of her weight, after her transformation she was able to deliver two more children, and she is now living her life at her fullest. Her weight has fluctuated over the years.

PAULA JONES

Also from Season 2, Jones underwent one of the most impressive transformations in the history of the show, and she has managed to maintain her desired weight.

Nowadays, she has the confidence to appear in a swimsuit in her social media, and this gives her the will she needs to stick to her diet and exercise routine. She has also become an activist against the obesity epidemic.

AMBER RACHDI

With more than 120.000 followers in social media, Rachdi has grown to be quite the influencer, and she constantly shares fashion and beauty tips. Despite the good place she is today, she has criticized the series.

"The experience was very disorganized and jarring and there's not a whole lot I can say using my grown-up tact. They ran late, reshot difficult to replicate scenes, and really sort of acted like bullies,” she told Starcasm in 2018.

He is in way better shape and health now and he has accomplished things that he once thought to be impossible, like driving, dating, and even getting married in 2016.

LAURA PEREZ

Perez also had problems with her husband Joey back when she appeared on the series. Joey didn’t support Perez in her desire to become independent of him, for fears of not being able to control her anymore.

She has since managed to leave that relationship behind to pursue her dream of attending beauty school. She is now married to a new man that she described as loving and caring.
