Makenzie says that feeling thin and gaining confidence was much harder than losing the weight.

Congratulations on your success honey... When I began watching your episode, I was absolutely disgusted by your fathers idea of why you should lose weight, but watching on, I am just so happy for you that you had a mind for your own and realized that he had no clue what he was saying. Men are going to love you no matter what you look like, but if you yourself cannot love who you are, then that is the ONLY reason to go for that goal!
I need someone's help i weight 250l bs and i need help because i have a lower back pro blem please HELP!!!!
I just watched your show on TV and I have to say your a beautiful girl! seriously, and that is coming from a girl not a guy, so I can just imagine what the guys are thinking! Im proud of your weight loss, and you've inspired me to keep on losing! You go girl!!
Normally, I wouldn't take the time to write a television show. However, when I stopped to watch a particular part of Makenzie's show, I was horrified. I caught the part where her father was telling her that she needed to lose weight in order to have a "fairytale relationship". THIS is what is wrong with America's perception of appearance. I couldn't believe that he was saying ANYTHING because he is not a fit man, himself. From what I saw, it seems he's part of the problem. He seems he's one of the men that is passing down this form of intolerance and BS views of what a woman is SUPPOSED to look like. "Men want a slender and shapely woman." WHAT??? Makenzie's Dad.......You're not doing anyone ANY favors by passing along this kind of mindset. Get over yourself! Makenzie should want to lose weight for her OWN reasons--not because her dad says she won't find a man, if she doesn't. Clearly, there is something missing in her life RIGHT NOW because of the weight. So, why don't you guys work on that BEFORE you go on a mission to make a girl "perfect?"
Wow Makenzie is beautiful :)
1st of all! I DON'T BLOG!....... but i had to sign up and leave a comment for Mackenzie....CONGRATULATIONS GIRL!!! i agree with one of the bloggers below that you were VERY pretty before. even prettier than you're friends to be honest. but of course naturally with the weight loss ur able to see ur features so much more and you are STUNNING! God bless and best wishes to you and your new way of living healthier!
gosh i try so freaking hard to lose 20 pounds but i cant -__-
U were not cruel I totally understand what U were saying and in this society today, what U said is basically true. "U have to be skinny and thin and shapely to get a guy" but honestly in our perception we can change that, becuase it is all about feeling good about yourself feeling confident and being pround and healthy. And That is what we should be able to see through the worlds eyes, But unfortunately we do not and I understand that not only did Makenzie go through and emotional and physical change but her father did too. He saw the world through different eyes seeing his daughter build not only her body but her new found confidence in herself also showing her strong will within and through that her whole family saw the new or inner her too so I understand what the dad said and also know that he sees differently now
I absolutely LOVED this one she was more closed to the weight i am so i was extremely proud of her even when she was struggling because this is no joke and it is really hard to do and im so proud of her she looks SO GREAT and she really really inspires me to loose this weight because i do realize its not only holding me back physically but emotionally
I too must add a comment to this. You are not a cruel father. You love your daughter and you want the best for her. That is 100% understandable. I grew up in a strong LDS family who is so close that nothing can tear us apart. Saying this I must say that my father can be very blunt some even say emotionless. He says what he thinks and it has taken me a long while to realize that he does it because he loves me. This is how he knows how to be. He wants only the best for me. I know this now because of an experience that happened at the exact same time as this show was being filmed. I wont go into it but I will say this. I thought my dad was just punishing me but I was very wrong. He loves me more then I know. And I know that he knows that even though he loves me he has to be very stern and even more blunt then usual. It may hurt me but in the end I will be a stronger person because of it. All this is going in circles I know so I will end this now. I am LDS and from Utah and I would love to be able to talk to Makenzie about her experience. We have so much in common. If you or Makenzie read this please contact me :) I would love a new friend :)
I loveee Makenzie!!! She is very real and No matter how much she weighed she is soo gorgeous! Has the most beautiful eyes and smile and her dad is right because some girls may never have a pretty face like hers. Congratz on the weight loss and keep pushing forward!!
WOW! This girl is Beautiful and she seems so genuine. Not too many girls out there like her. The guy who ultimately ends up with her is one lucky person. May God bless her while she continues on her path of weightloss. You GO GIRL!!! You look AMAZING! :)
My dad is just like you! He loves me alot and when he says things that may sound hurtful to others, I know what he really means. I am also LDS and grew up in a large athletic family with 5 brothers and one thin sister and I think she is lucky to have you as a dad. Not many girls have that! I lost weight after high school, 60 pounds and he was very proud of me. Marriage is very important in our religion and not alot of people outside of it get it like we do.
ps, I got lots of hookups to have a full happy fun life from rock climbing to volleyball and softball and the tumbling gym once a week to hiking etc.... who needs men! Also I do live in Utah.
MAKENZIE you have no idea how much alike we are. I to am LDS and have battled being over weight my entire life. After high school I lost 60 pounds and have been battling with myself ever since! I have 5 brothers that always picked on me and would make fun of me for not being able to get dates growing up. I didnt get my first kiss until I was 21 and that was one year ago. I get called fat alot and have the same pressure to get married by my family. They always say that my little sister will be gone before I am. But im okay with that haha. I have lost weight the healthy weigh by lots of exercise and eating very strictly. After a while I gave up and developed bulimia and it took me one year to over come it. I am healthy now and exercise as much as I can and am very active. Still over weight but I feel great and can do more then any skinny girl can do! I hope that we bump into each other someday cause I know we could be great friends. Its nice to have someone in the same exact boat as me for once. if you read this look me up on FB or email me. firstname.lastname@example.org
i feel so bad for her! she worked so hard and didnt lose much weight! that sucks for her, i wonder if she wasnt eating right or maybe has a thyroid condition. it just seems weird that others on the show lost a whole bunch of weight but not her...something had to be wrong. she is beautiful though!
HEY(: So yeah i just got done whatching the show! First thing im gunna say is WOW! YOu go girl... im so happy for you like ive never been over weight but my siblings have and they are on the same boat as you were, They run to fatening food. like me i have a fast metabalism, so i eat like crazy.. but im adopted so yeah): I just was moved by the way you fought it out. nd even after you are still working out. girl dont you ever give up or imma kick you lil booty... lol jk but forreal dont ever let noone think you cannot do something. God would never give up on you as you can see! You are BLESSED1 and imma pray that things stay right for you! Love, Katie
