Jessica Before & After
About episode 2 – Rickywayne/Jessica:
Rickywayne, 35 years old and 555 pounds, started putting on weight when he was in the 5th grade. Getting creative with how to sneak the extra food, he was eating six or seven meals a day. After losing his mother, he’s carried guilt that drives him to eat uncontrollably. Now Rickywayne must lose the weight, before he loses his life. Jessica, 28 years old and 288 pounds, has always been known as the fat girl. She’s struggled with a pathological eating compulsion that leaves nothing on her plate when she’s done. She fears that if she doesn’t lose the weight now, her family will continue to outpace her and leave her out of her own family.
