Lisa Ebberson’s unhealthy relationship with eating started because of trauma. She grew up in Fairbury, Nebraska, and has always been large, like her family. Her difficult childhood went unnoticed, especially when her father became an alcoholic and abused her mother before leaving them.
Her mother started working full-time, so Lisa and her sisters had to take care of themselves and ate mostly junk food. When Lisa was 13, she was raped by two boys, which pushed her towards binge and stress eating.
To avoid being touched without consent, Lisa Ebberson tried to gain weight. Over time, her weight got out of control due to her teen pregnancy and failed relationships. At age 51, Lisa weighed 637 pounds and had been bedridden for four years. Doctors were concerned she might break her ankle if she tried to walk without losing weight.
Lisa Ebberson felt guilty for not being able to help her boyfriend Randy at home and feared missing out on future opportunities with their grandchildren. These reasons motivated her to try to change. Initially, she seemed determined but ended up ignoring Dr. Now’s program and even tried to manipulate her way through it.
