Here I am with the ladies I am mentor to to help motivate them to get the weight off and get healthy! :-)
This is a clip from a news interview I did and it shows part of the Dr. OZ show. The 3 women I am mentoring are doing pretty will. It's going to be a long road but they are now seeing the big picture. :-)
