Patrick Northern is a lovable dad who's always joking. He can always find the funny side of any situation, but last year things took a turn for the worse when he lost his truck-driving job. His wife Kim took on the role of sole breadwinner and Patrick's confidence took a serious blow.
Kim and their teen twins, Ameer and Ameera, have always looked to Patrick for direction. As Patrick lost the motivation to get off the couch, the rest of the family followed suit and the weight began to pile on.
Now Patrick is facing the grim reality of his family history of heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. Because the family follows his lead, Kim is now on the same path. Jillian faces the daunting task of rebuilding Patrick's confidence in one week. The problem is she finds Patrick so adorable that it's hard to push him. Will she be able to save Patrick if she can't bring herself to push him?
