Best shape of life could have been more best.

The series starts off with the Will's goals for the next 2o weeks where he aims to achieve both shedding 20 pounds and at the same time completing his memoir, and from there it starts dealing with the progress of his next 20 weeks. The problem with this there is no base of prior strong thing as foundation for audience to stick with him and even at some places the scenes or the time given for showcasing that particular week's things lacks and feels missed, skipped or fast forwarded it tires to showcase the dilemma that Will is going at the same time because of lack of proper presentation it also kind of confuses the audience. It could have been lot more engaging and better but anyway its neither a movie nor a documentary to be fabricated, edited and presented. It definitely worth watching to know his side of story and what makes him tick and what derails him. It's completely from his point of view of his current state and its worth giving a watch.
