Lance comes from a Texas farming and ranching family and was raised on meat and potatoes. He was aught at an early age to eat everything on his plate. This conditioning from childhood has followed him into adulthood and he cannot leave food on his plate, or anyone else's. With a booming oil industry in 2004, Lance was in high demand as a commercial diver. The industry began to tighten up its standards and Lance continued to gain weight, leading him to his job loss. Lance's weight has hindered his ability to earn income and therefore support his family. Lance has the strength, stamina and determination to win the battle with his weight and begin to live a happy and healthy lifestyle, but he needs guidance on how to lose said weight.
As the parents of two children, Lance and Melissa set very poor examples for their children when it comes to health and fitness. Evenings at the Morgan house consist of take-out, video games and hours of television. Lance and Melissa realize that now is the time to make the changes that will affect the lives of their family -- forever.
