Dr Oz: Transformation Nation 10 Finalists
You’ve seen Dr Oz talk about his Transformation Nation-Million Dollar You! (Did you join? How much weight did you lose?) On today’s show, with the help of his expert panel, Dr Oz picked the 10 finalists (Stella Ortega, Karl Nielson, Stephanie Lewis-Vance, Mercedes Moebuis, Michael Lamb, Sheila Haines, Sharona Sankar-King, Mary Ellen Brunaugh, Jen McElroy and Dawn Villanueva) who have a chance at winning a million bucks! Dr Oz partnered with Weight Watchers and ShareCare to help you lose over 3 million pounds together. Some finalist revealed triumphant stories of saving their own and loved one’s lives, while others were just happy to be able to fit into their skinny jeans. (Hey, there’s nothing wrong with that either!)
The finalists hailed from all over the country and included busy working moms, hospital employees, sixth grade teachers and even one woman who was a 65-year old grandmother of 7. (Did anyone else think she looked the best, too?)
These 10 finalists proved that it could be done. You can lose the weight while positively transforming your life. Do you have a weight lost story? If so, leave me a message. We would love to hear it.
