A lot of “heave-ho” in our clip below, as the task of getting Chitoka safely and comfortably inside a vehicle to see the doctor shows just how arduous her daily life is.
After last week’s cliffhanger ending, the entire family is still awaiting the outcome for Drew after his surgery. The three cousins, Naomi Anderson, Chitoka Light and Drew Stewart, who weighed a combined amount of almost 2,000-lbs are each waging war on their obesity.
Along with the guidance of Dr. Charles Procter Jr., these cousins are in it to win it. But there are always obstacles, and in Chitoka’s case, the immediate one is simply getting inside a car.
As we have watched the series, the ongoing struggles Chitoka has faced seem to be peeling away as her previous failed attempts to get to Dr. Procter’s office are now joyously conquered as we see in the video below.
She is nervous and wants to conquer her weight loss challenge.
Meanwhile, cousin Naomi has neglected her personal life as she has been so focused on taking care of her body and working on changing her eating habits. Her boyfriend Mike has been put on the backburner, and the two haven’t been on a date in months.
Now with Valentine’s Day looming, the episode will see Mike and Naomi having a dinner-date but things, as they seem to do for these three, do not go as planned.
Watch tonight to see if Chitoka makes it all the way to the Doctor’s office and if Naomi’s relationship makes it to the dessert course.
Family By The Ton airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on TLC.
