At dinner the first night of the challenge, Michelle realizes the toll her family's lifestyle has taken on everyone. "Back in the day, we used to do everything together," her son Dylan says. "Now I guess we don't really do much of anything together."

Michelle says it's hard to hear. "When the boys were talking about how our family is different and it's grown apart, it actually really hurts," Michelle says. "It breaks my heart."

Still, the family comes together during the challenge with trips to the park and learning how to give back. Oprah asked the Ladwigs to give away at least 10 things they could live without, and the family decides to start by cleaning out their pantry.
