ABC's 'Extreme' New Weight Loss Show


ABC's new show "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition" is helping people who are looking to change their lives by setting out to safely lose half of their body weight over the course of a year.

Monday night's episode will focus on Alex, a 23-year-old from Atlanta who weighs 459 pounds at the start of his journey. He has joined with personal trainer Chris Powell to lose his excess weight and set an example for his younger brothers.

With his workout routine and change in diet, Alex admits to ET that he has lost 93 pounds in the first three months of his program. He is trying to reach 230lbs which will allow him to undergo surgery to remove an excess 30 pounds from his body.
