What if you were given a second chance to get your life on track? Two years ago in True Life: I'm Uncomfortable With My New Body told the story of Rocky, an overweight teen who had recently lost over 300 pounds. Unhappy with the excess skin left by his rapid weight loss, Rocky continued to hate his appearance, obsess about food and isolate himself from others. Now, the song remains the same -- Rocky is still living with his parents, prone to wild eating binges, and fearful of social interactions. In this special, Rocky is about to get a chance to change that tune -- because we're setting him up with a life coach who will try to help Rocky conquer the problems that he hasn't been able to solve on his own. True Life Presents: I'm Getting a Second Chance is Executive Produced by Josh Haygood of Bandito Films.
