Plot Synopsis

In this one-hour reality series, seven desperate hopefuls -- each weighing between 400-lbs and 800-lbs -- seek the help of renowned bariatric surgeon Dr. Charles Procter, as they attempt to lose weight and change their lives forever. Each episode follows a new case, culminating in either the success or setback of their weight loss journey. The 90-minute series opener, "We Big But We Pretty," focuses on best friends Meghan and Vanessa. Despite their fun-loving energy and wit, both women are plagued by health problems. Weighing in at 496-lbs, Meghan is tired of living her life connected to an oxygen tank and wants to inspire Vanessa to join her in having bariatric surgery. However, at 440-lbs, Vanessa is not convinced looking at the intense diet and exercise changes they need to make in order to meet Dr. Procter's weight loss requirements prior to the surgery. In the end, it will take more than a positive attitude and a sense of humor to push these women to save their own lives.
TOO LARGE made its linear television debut on Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at 10pm ET/PT on TLC.
