The A&E documentary show “Heavy” is inspiring but certainly nothing new. The show follows two morbidly obese individuals as they spend 6 months at Hilton Head Spa losing weight.

The show is emotional, sad, and uplifting. I enjoy the personal stories, the transformations, and the perseverance that each episode evokes. That being said, the show is simply a different form of “The Biggest Loser” or “Shedding for the Wedding” or “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition,” “Money Hungry,” “Losing It with Jillian,” or any other weight loss show.

Still, I like watching it.

I give it 5 stars!
