Fitness Trainer JESSIE PAVELKA and Psychotherapist STACY KAISER Reunite to Guide an All-New Tribe

LOS ANGELES, CA (September 10, 2009) � Put down the cookies and cake and grab your cross-trainers, and tune into DietTribe, Lifetime's reality series about a group of friends who have made a commitment to lose weight together. Season two premieres Friday, October 2nd at 9:00pm ET/PT. Professional fitness trainer and health expert Jessie Pavelka and psychotherapist Stacy Kaiser return to guide and coach an all-new tribe as they work towards creating healthier and happier lives, one pound at a time. Season Two follows five mothers for 120 days as they struggle to stay on track through the toughest workouts of their lives and face the scale each week to see how far they've come both mentally and physically.


Sisters Stephanie Taulealea (40) and Tiffany Young (36) have shared everything about their lives � including their bad eating habits and gastric bypass surgeries. Despite the medical procedures, they gained back most of the weight. The sisters know the time is now to take control of their weight and their lives. Stephanie and Tiffany enlist the help and support of their �softball mom� friends to reach their weight-loss goals. Joining Stephanie and Tiffany are Mary Lasnier (38), a stay-at-home mom who has packed on the weight; LaNaessa Watson (27), the only �non-mom' in the group who suffers from low self-esteem; and Rita Porter (33), a former athlete who longs to regain her old body.

The women of DietTribe still maintain their daily routines with their families, stressful jobs and everyday struggles of life, but, now, with the help of Jessie and Stacy, they must refocus and carve out time to exercise and learn to live healthier. This season, Jessie raises the stakes when he challenges the tribe to loose between 35-50 pounds and compete in a triathlon at the end of their four month journey.
