Love it!!
19 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this when it was first aired on the TV and really enjoyed it, and i recently just bought the series 1,2 and 3 and i love it just as much! It can make you laugh and cry within the same episode, i like the fact that they all have their own problems to deal with but they still manage come together as they have one thing in common, dieting!! Its so refreshing to watch and i would definitely recommend it. Through out the series' you see all the characters evolve and allows you to see further into their characters, some which may come as a surprise some slightly predictable, but nether the less they are all enjoyable in their own way.
