Dr. Oz Ultimate Health Challenge

It really pays to be a night owl writer sometimes. I knew that Dr. Oz had his own show now, but it airs after midnight here. As I was trying to fall asleep last night, I finally caught an episode...and what an episode! With the help of football great Eddie George and his lovely wife Taj, Dr. Oz is kicking off The Ultimate Health Challenge.

Taj told her story of finally losing her baby weight, and she wants to motivate all of the other moms out there who want to lose theirs as well. Dr. Oz has 2 teams of NFL moms...one team of 10 represents the AFC, the other group represents the NFC. They will be monitored on the show as they lose weight and get healthy.

Dr. Oz gave a list of important health numbers to concentrate on: blood pressure, waist size, cholesterol, body mass index, and weight. Using a couple of the moms as examples, he showed how their numbers were way too high and what could happen because of it. That really opened my eyes to just how important it is to take care of ourselves.

The real A-HA! moment came when he showed what a layer of belly fat looks like in a slender person...then showed the belly fat of an obese person. Not only was it much larger, but also extremely discolored and quite grotesque. Just knowing that I have a layer that looks like that on my inside...well, it made me ill and more determined to get rid of it.

You can take the challenge along with the NFL moms at http://www.doctoroz.com/challenge/dr-ozs-ultimate-health-challenge. Whatever plan you are on now, I really believe this is a great supplement to help us reach our goals. Sometimes it really helps to have the extra push!

Thanks for this! I'm a new mum (Tabitha is 6 months old) and I've only just started my own weightloss blog to help get rid of the 70+ lbs I gained during pregnancy! I want to lose nearly another 90 lbs on top (I was very fat already when I got pregnant!) and am 40 lbs down, with 119 lbs to go...

Unlike you, I'm no night owl, so if this programme was showing at midnight on British TV, I'd have been in bed at least 2 hours by then!
