Scoop: SKIN TIGHT on TLC - Today, May 10, 2017

TLC's SKIN TIGHT airs tonight at 10/9c, after an all-new episode of MY 600-LB LIFE: WHERE ARE THEY NOW at 8/7c. On another dramatic episode of SKIN TIGHT, Jessica and Melissa have been severely overweight their whole lives, from struggling as sisters growing up together all the way to their adult lives. Melissa found love which inspired her to lose weight, and Jessica followed in her footsteps. Instead of enjoying the fruits of their hard labor at the end of their weight-loss journey, they were both left with heaps of excess skin.

Melissa's excess skin keeps her from being comfortable outside as her children play and makes her self-conscious about going on dates with her husband. Jessica's skin squanders her efforts to find a date herself, and instead she is forced to live at home with her mom. Both of them want to leave the remnants of their old lives behind, and they'll have each other as they try to push through their journey to have normal lives.

Then, after losing it all due to his weight, Matt decided he needed a change. At his heaviest of 625 lbs, he lost his wife, his job as a pastor and his health was rapidly deteriorating. After being turned down for gastric bypass surgery, he decided to lose the weight on his own, but the massive amounts of excess skin were a hurdle he hadn't foreseen. Now it's keeping him from achieving steady work, finding love, and everything else that his weight had originally kept him from. Will he have the strength to overcome one more challenge?
