ON THE SEASON FINALE EPISODE OF "EXTREME MAKEOVER: WEIGHT LOSS EDITION,"
CHRIS POWELL TAKES KRISTA THROUGH AN UNFORGIVING JOURNEY SO SHE CAN
CONQUER HER WEIGHT AND LIVE HER LIFE ANEW
"Krista" - Trainer and transformation specialist Chris Powell takes one of his toughest clients, Krista from Haslett, Texas, through an unforgiving weight loss journey, pushing her to conquer her weight despite her efforts to push away his help. A 34-year-old married mother of one, Krista had it all, until a fateful day in 2006 when she discovered her then two-year-old daughter had suffered a seizure. Everything in Krista's world changed at that point, including her weight. Now, at the morbid weight of 445 pounds, Krista knows that if she doesn't get help immediately, she could lose her life, and her daughter could lose her mother and greatest advocate. The Season Finale of "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition" airs MONDAY, JULY 25 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
To ensure each of her four, three-month weight loss goals are met, Chris takes Krista to a Texas motor speedway where she must push a race car around the track. In the midst of her one-year journey and with her daughter and husband looking on, Chris tests Krista's fitness level as she tries to complete the Disneyland � Marathon. With new goal weights set every three months, the challenge is constant. The sole variable is Krista. With Chris' proven transformation tools set in place, the only question remaining is whether Krista is strong enough to get out of her own way and let the metamorphosis manifest.
