He has paired up with Weight Watchers and Sharecare to help others and today ten finalists are being announced, but in the end, it seems everyone involved with the Transformation Nation challenge is a winner’.

It’s easy to find the excitement Transformation Nation has generated. Comments on Dr. Oz’s Facebook page include the following:

“I joined WW in late January and am loving it!!! I have struggled with weight my entire life and have tried so many other methods out there. Nothing else even came close to the success I'm having with WW. I've lost 30 lbs. so far and I have no intentions of stopping anytime soon! Also have a friend that's been doing it and has lost over 115 lbs. in a year. He's been a great coach & inspiration to me along the way, along with all the great people I've connected with at my weekly meetings.”

“…Weight Watchers is definitely not a diet. It is changing ur lifestyle. I was heavy my entire life, and WW has showed me a New Me! Someone that I love and wish that I was a long time ago. But it is never too late to start the program. And yes it is a sure Winner!!
