Too Large , an extreme weight-loss show featuring Atlanta-based Dr. Proctor of 1000-lb Sisters fame, debuted yesterday on Disocver+. The show is modeled on My 600-lb Life, which stars Houston-based Dr. Nowzaradan, and has a bit of the flare and positivity of 1000-lb Sisters. During the episode, Meghan tries to persuade her lifelong friend Vannessa to also get the surgery, but Vannessa has a number of internal roadblocks that keep her from reaching her goals.
In the premiere episode Stockbridge, GA resident Meghan Crumpler is almost 500 pounds, needs an oxygen tank to breathe and has decided it’s time to make a change in her life. She seeks help from Dr. Proctor, who is passionate about bariatric surgery and has been practicing it for 14 years.
