Mandy's Weight Loss Story on Oprah

Weight Loss Show Stoppers on Oprah

Guest: Mandy
Total Weight Lost: 227 pounds

Current Weight: 170 pounds

Mandy credits the country’s most beloved doctor, Dr. Oz, to motivating her to knock more than 200 pounds off her 5’ 4” and 400-pound frame. When Dr. Oz appeared on the Oprah Show and held up graphic pictures of what the organs look like for those who are obese, Mandy had her life-changing “ah-ha” moment.

She inquired about gastric bypass surgery, but was told she needed to lose weight in order to be a candidate. So she went home and limited how much sugar she ate and reduced her carbohydrate intake. As she got on a weight loss roll and the weight poured off, she stopped thinking about weight loss surgery and instead started walking at her local YMCA while also continuing her sensible eating habits. In 18 months, Mandy lost 227 pounds on her own. "You have to make a commitment to yourself, and once you take control of your life and your health, the world around you will open up," she says.
