Tamara and Alizabeth

Q: What was the most difficult part of the show?

Tamara: The most difficult part of the show for me was giving up my scale, facing the fact that I have a problem and letting go.

Q: How has your relationship changed after the show?

Tamara: My relationship with Alizabeth has gotten so much better. I do not feel that we would be in the place we are now if it were not for the show.

Alizabeth: My mom and me are finally getting our relationship back to what it used to be.

Q: How are you dealing with your obsession?

Tamara: I am dealing with my obsession ONE DAY AT A TIME! I have signed up for the MOVE program at the VA Hospital in Long Beach. I will be going through eight weeks of intense therapy to help me understand my problem even better.

Q: Describe how the show has impacted your life.

Tamara: The show has impacted my life by helping me to realize the things that I was doing to my daughter. It let us work though those things to create a happier and healthier relationship.

Alizabeth: I see a whole different person in my mom now. I see her fight with herself every day to make sure that she keeps herself under control. Every day is a new day for her - and not all of them are good - but I can see that she is trying, and that is what matters to me.
