Tanisha has finished working at Wellspring Pennsylvania and is now on her way to college in California. En route she decides to stop off at Wellspring North Carolina one final time to say goodbye and to reminisce with her friend and former coach, Nicole, about her time at the camp, including when she first arrived on campus 18 months ago weighing in at 510 pounds. As Tanisha visits her old dorm for the final time she vows never to return to the person she was when she arrived at Wellspring.
The students face the ultimate test as they are forced to motivate themselves outside the regimented world of Wellspring. Carsyn is ready to abandon her former routine in favor of her own modified "Carsyn Plan," but will it be enough to deter temptations at her new restaurant job and while she's away at college? Ashley also feels confident that she can handle a three week road trip, but instructors worry that her cockiness will backfire on her. Meanwhile, Tanisha continues her Wellspring journey, but this time, she's taking on the role of program coach rather than student. However, taking on the extra responsibility proves a bit challenging.
As the semester comes to a close, the students reflect on their long journey at Wellspring. Some students will head off to summer camp during the break, while the seniors gear up for high school graduation. While the students are excited to show off their weight loss, they're also anxious about maintaining their weight loss program without the support they had at Wellspring. But before they go, they must complete their final timed-mile runs and have their final weight and body measurements recorded. Meanwhile, Carsyn, Hayley and Tanisha are in the running for senior valedictorian.
Another group of campers arrive on campus, and the students can't help but to compare their bodies to the thin teens. The coaches decide to hold therapeutic body image sessions to help the students' self-esteem, and Coach Heather takes the girls to a professional photographer to teach them about the common practice of photo alterations in the industry. But will her plan backfire when the students see just how much their own pictures have to be manipulated in order to erase all of their flaws? Plus, see why Ashley is furious and why Carsyn feels like she just can't catch a break.
