Patti panics and thinks she's fat after watching a commercial selling a diet kit by a teenage actress, so she, Connie, and Beebe set out to lose weight. Patti decides to go on a drastic diet and exercise routine. But once she starts losing weight, she can't seem to stop herself, she even stops eating.
