    they were here in the coal region of PA filming at their house, bought her a $1000 wedding gown and him a suit. They are going to pick them up in a limo, take them to Philly airport and off to Hawaii for a second honeymoon.

    It's all because she was at her highest weight when they married and she was going to get bariatric surgery but chose to do it naturally with Curves and portion control. So, they are giving them a second wedding. They were originally married in Jamaica.

    She lost about 85 pounds! She could be the next Jared of Curves!

    That is so cool- how long did it take her to lose the weight? Rachel Ray seems like such a great person, did you get to meet her. Congrats to the DIL and Son hope they have a wonderful time.

    You have to let us know when it airs-Carla

    I think it took about a year. I'll let you know when it airs.

    She has a mother that lives her life through my DIL and she and the sister were included in the filming. I would'be been happier if the MIL was left out. She doesn't ever let them alone.

    But I am happy for them. My son and his wife dated about 7 years before they married. He didn't get to go to a prom and went to her high school prom after they met.

    In the original wedding picture they were both obese, she loves to cook, loves Rachel Raye, and now she went out and bought bathing suits for the trip.

    I guess I live life through them, too,.......LOL

    Your D-I-L must be one determined girl. That's alot of weight to lose. I met a girl the other day who lost 100 pds. on Weight Watchers.

    Hope it's a great incentive for her to keep it off too, since hopefully they'll follow up with her too.

    My cousin-in-law lost a very large amount of weight with one of the companies around in the late 1970s, and ended up in their ads in newspapers for a while, a very big thing back then.

    She kept it off for maybe 10 years, but slowly crept back on again; it's been a long-time battle for both her and her sisters, their Mom as well. But none of their 3 brothers.

    I really do think it's genetics... those are the people who would likely survive better in famines since their bodies are more efficient. No surprise heavier women were prized originally...

    I can't imagine how exciting this is for her tho! You'll have to keep us posted as to when the show will be on!!!

    all the best,

    It will be on Tuesday, 5/20/, in NE PA, it will be on at 2 and 3 pm on Fox. It's about her weight loss. You will see my son in the video taken in Hawaii.

    There is also another woman featured with a weight-loss story.

    This is odd. I just went from reading this post, to another message board where I discuss my soap opera. The most recent post there is "Rachael Ray May 20th, my daughter is on". She said, "My kid is on the show tomorrow. Lost alot of weight. The one in the bridal gown. I'm on too but Im old and fluffy. Also lost my accent many many many years ago."

    I had to come back and read your post again. Do you suppose thats your DIL's mom who posted that?

    Small web!

    That is so neat Kelly. I just emailed myself to my home email (i am at work) to remind me to record that show. I can't wait to see it.

    That is strange. There is going to be two young woman, and the one in the gown IS my DIL. That could be her mother, but the accent? I don't know what she would mean except for being from the coal country. People say we DO have sort of our own way of saying things.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the show and especially your relatives. What time of day, I wonder? Morning show or more than once on Tuesday the 20th??

    Kelly, I was born and raised in Schuylkill County, near Hazleton. In which city or town are you?

    The spot showing what is on for tomorrow is quick. It shows Heidi and my son walking the beach....

    It shows Valerie sneaking up on Heidi in the mirror as she was getting ready.

    Valerie is best friends with Rachel.

    YES! I sure can say "Skoo-kull"

    Mahanoy City? That's where my mother was born, nearby in Morea. I grew up in McAdoo for the first 17 years of my life. And I know where Schuylkill Haven is!

    We have Comcast also; I'll call them so I don't miss seeing your son and family. We get 2 of Rachel Ray's shows in the evening but a full hour in the morning.

    I'm going to miss my 40 minute exercise class just to see this show. Looking forward.

    I was getting worried about my DIL with her weight. But, she really worked hard and she is gorgeous. She was pretty even with the extra weight.

    She loves to cook and my son discovered all this food he was missing out on and he, too, gained weight. He goes to a gym now, too, which he gets free through work.

    He works in a pierogie business with the computer department, and she is a registered nurse.
