Unfortunately for Trina, the amazing rush of losing weight and working out with one of her fitness idols is quickly lost when she and her mother resume their co-dependent relationship, which sends her back into her bad habits.

For the first time, a participant actually gains weight� Find out how Chris handles it, on "Extreme Weight Loss," TUESDAY, JULY 23 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
