"Trina" - At 5'4" and 290 pounds, 46-year-old registered nurse and mother of three Trina is afraid she'll soon become one of the morbidly obese patients she cares for in her hospital. She often calls herself a hypocrite for insisting her patients get their weight to manageable levels, while she continues to neglect her own growing obesity. Trina hits the ground running in the first month, really embracing her new lifestyle. She even gets the group of nurses from her hospital together for a special workout, hoping to show them all the amazing things Chris taught her at boot camp. Chris is so proud of her, he sends a fellow fitness guru, Richard Simmons, to inspire and motivate the nurses.
