At Kate's wedding, her bridesmaid friend overheard her saying that she would be a "counterweight" to her fiance's friend Tim because they were both obese. The bridesmaid decided to take matters into her own hands and lost 35 pounds in six months. When everyone saw her at the wedding they were in shock, and Kate's real intention of setting her up with Tim was revealed.
