But close to 20 years later, and up to 608 pounds, Angela now thinks she’s ready to commit to a healthier lifestyle for good — sort of. Now 44 years old, Angela’s two children are grown up: 19-year-old Chris was her primary caretaker but he accepted a job tha tprevented him from caring for his mother full-time.
And Angela’s oldest daughter, Andrea, 23, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis a few years back and requires a lot of care of her own. But that’s not all: Angela also cares for her incarcerated cousin’s 11-year-old child.
Since she needs a buddy to accompany her to Dr. Now’s office in Houston, Angela enlists the help of her ex-boyfriend Eric. But the 1,100-mile road trip ends up being something of a disaster.
