Amber's family steps on the scale.

4 of 22
After looking at what's weighing down each room, Peter decides it's time for another moment of truth—stepping on the scale. "This is a really tough day," Peter says. "But unless you're really truthful with yourself, there could be no progress."

Amber steps on and sees she's at her all-time heaviest—242 pounds. Amber's husband Alberto faces the same truth when he weighs in at 192 pounds. Amber's 13-year-old son, Antonio, weighs in at 158 pounds, and her 12-year-old daughter, Isabella, is at 124.

The entire family was shocked at how much they weighed. "I cried harder not about my own weight but because I saw the weight of my children," Amber says.

In all, the family weighs 716 pounds, but they're determined to never weigh this much again. "This is a great day because it is the start of some fantastic new things for you," Peter says.
