'Extreme Weight Loss': Overweight Couple Hopes To Save Their Marriage By Losing Weight Together (VIDEO)

Chris Powell was tasked with helping Jason and Rachel save their marriage -- as well as lose weight -- on the latest episode of "Extreme Weight Loss." The couple were on the brink of divorce, but they wanted to find a way to save their marriage, as well as lose weight, for the sake of their 5-year-old twins.

The pair were a combined 350 lbs. overweight. Neither of them carried that weight when they got married 18 years ago, so it was symbolic of their struggles and the darker side of their fractured marriage. But the "Extreme Weight Loss" process isn't an easy one, and at times it looked like this experience would only push them further apart.

Jason struggled with self-doubt, not just about the workout but about holding his family together and even about his job. Chris helped talk him through the emotional struggles to get him back on track with his weight loss goals. As the pounds came off, the couple found new passion for one another. Jason even re-proposed to his wife at the same place they originally got engaged: on top of the Empire State Building.

At the end of their journey, the couple had lost 310 pounds. The couples' local ABC station, WXYZ, had a moment of panic when it was discovered that the couple was no longer wearing their wedding rings. Did it end after the show finished taping? No worries. The rings just don't fit anymore!

See more stunning transformations on "Extreme Weight Loss" every Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
