Fans were first introduced to Vanessa and Meghan on 'Too Large'. During the show's filming, they weighed 440 lbs and 496 lbs, respectively and were hoping to make lifestyle changes for the better.

Now, the duo are back, with two other friends, Ashley and Tina, as they all embark on their fitness journey together.
What is '1000-lb Best Friends' all about
As per the series synopsis, "Vannessa and Meghan, whom viewers first met on TOO LARGE, were bullied for their weight all the way back in middle school and ever since then, they have had each other's backs. When Meghan peaked at almost 600-lbs, they decided it was time to take control of their lives and pursue weight loss surgery. Meghan qualified while Vannessa didn't, however Meghan's weight loss has stalled out since she went ahead with the surgery. Power comes in numbers and now with Tina and Ashely, they are making a pact and recommitting to their original goal to turn their lives around. Ashely previously underwent weight-loss surgery, but she's put back on all the weight she lost and is once again pursuing surgery to get back on track. Tina, on the other hand, isn't ready to take on the risks of surgery, so she plans to lose the excess weight on her own. From camping to swimming in the ocean, these friends are determined to get out of the sedentary habits that have led them to where they are now. Whether it's exercise, doctors' appointments or therapy sessions, they'll rely on each other to get through it all. But with four big personalities, they are bound to ruffle each other's feathers. Will the gang be able to overcome their insecurities and self-doubt in time to attend their high school reunion as a fiercely fabulous, united front?"
