Iyanla Fix My Life: Fix My Overweight Family
Thursday, 21 May at 20:55
In an emotional episode, Iyanla helps members of the Pace Sisters, an acclaimed gospel singing group of siblings, who are all fighting the same lifelong battle with weight. Seven of the nine sisters agree to sit down with Iyanla, but sadly, one of the sisters, Melonda, has a stroke before she has a chance to speak with Iyanla. Clearly, the clock is ticking.
Iyanla’s work is cut out for her as she tries to help these women uncover and confront what is weighing them down—mentally and physically. Perhaps Iyanla’s biggest challenge, though, is to get these women to open up, which conflicts with their strict Christian faith that has taught them to put all of their problems in God’s hands
