If you've already abandoned your New Year's resolutions, maybe Chuck's story from this week's "My 600-lb Life" (Tues. Jan. 28 at 9:00 p.m. on TLC) will make you feel a bit better about that.

Chuck knows he has to change his life. Being 700 pounds has forced him to downsize his business, his wife is ready to leave him, and he knows his health is at risk. So, after meeting with a doctor about weight reduction surgery, what does he do? Go to his favorite restaurant for an AYCE feast, of course! In this exclusive clip, see Chuck chow down as his wife stares at him in horror. Yum!

Do you think Chuck can lose the weight?
