Tina Arnold On 1000-Lb Best Friends
TLC’s ‘1000-lb Best Friends’ documents the journey of four friends Meghan Crumpler, Vannessa Cross, Ashley Sutton, and Tina Arnold taking on the journey to lose some weight. Every single one of them has their reason whether it is to look good or to be alive so that family doesn’t have to endure the pain of them going away before time.
In the preview of the show, Vannessa introduces herself and her friend Meghan. Friends since senior high, they got each others’ back. Tired of all the bullying and for the sake of their children, they have shown determination to shed some weight. However, it surely isn’t going to be easy, so Vannessa also tapped their two friends Tina and Ashley to come along on the journey.
Not only Ashley and Tina are appearing on the show as their motivators, but they are also trying to lose weight.
As stressful as it is, nobody says “oversized” girls can’t have fun. We see Tina on the preview threatening to duct-tape Vanessa’s mouth in the heat of the moment. But, she is shown emotional when she talks to Meghan when she says, “My biggest fear is me leaving my kids alone without me,”
But, viewers are promised the inevitable drama which we see at the end of the preview. Based on Ashley’s tweet, she has been a fan of TLC’s show ‘My 600lb Life’ never knowing one day she would get to star on a reality show with a similar theme.
About Tina and Meghan’s history, you should know that they have known each other when Meghan was only 15. So, they have 3 decades-old friendship behind them. Meghan wrote on her Facebook, “I have some of the best friends a person could ever hope for. I know you have all met Vannessa TooLarge. But this is also one of the truest best friends Tina Arnold I have on this planet. We also go way back to my age 15.”
As a testament to her long-lasting friendship, Tina also posted on her Instagram, “Most marriages don’t even last 27 years these days… but that’s just how long this chick has been dealing with my bs. I don’t say it as much as I should, ’cause I’m a hardass – but I’m super proud of her and thankful to have her in my life.”
Tina Arnold Weight Loss Journey
Tina was hinting at her weight loss journey since July 2021. She wrote, “My journey isn’t over… I’m just getting started again”. She posted a photo of herself in 2012 when she weighed 300 lbs. According to her early December 2021 post, she hated herself and it was hard for her to breathe just doing the bare minimal tasks.
A year later, Tina lost 80 lbs by working out six days a week, doing P90X with Mr. Tony Horton, and drinking two chocolate Shakeology shakes a day. For eight long months, she worked hard to learn all she could about health and nutrition, giving herself a wellness education she had never had any interest in before.

He’s here for me when I need him the most, he makes me laugh and he lets me ugly cry on him when I just need to let it all out. He’s kinda cool, I guess – in a computer geek, Star Wars loving (obsessed) kinda way… he’s a’ight.”
