My Weight Is Killing Me

Image 1 / 6

Following a father-son surgical team, ‘My Weight Is Killing Me’ is about the stories of patients at a Houston weight-management clinic. The doctors perform bariatric surgeries on morbidly obese individuals weighing from 400 to 1000 pounds, and also develop a follow-up plan to help them through the post-operative stages so they can maintain the weight loss. The surgeries entailed are risky but often essential, such as gastric bypass, mastectomy and removing excess skin. Will the unfortunate protagonists be able to change not only their body, but their entire lifestyle, in order to restore their crumbling confidence, failing marriages or physical ambitions?
