Tamara's obsession with her own weight spilled into how she was raising her daughter Alizabeth on "My Mom Is Obsessed" (Thu., 10 p.m. ET on Discovery Fit & Health). Tamara admitted to weighing herself every day for the past 23 years, and has started weighing her daughter regularly.

Her obsessive focus on her daughter's weight got so bad that she was forcing the teenager to call her from school to go over lunch choices, raiding her room searching for hidden food and even grounded her for going out for pizza one night with friends.

With the help of therapy, Tamara was able to get rid of that dreaded scale, and start to focus on having a more normal and healthy relationship with both her daughter and herself.

"My Mom Is Obsessed" chronicles new stories each Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on Discovery Fit & Health.
