Not doing Dr. Oz challenge on this end.

No, Ive got all the challenge I need w/ SP....Im having too much fun here to change up. But if Dr oz can motivate one person with his challenge, go for it!

No. I watched his show the other day about 100 foods to buy for dieting or something to that affect. The food he suggested was frozen or packaged, I was very surprised at his advice. I expected him to say fresh fresh fresh, but didn't hear him mention it at all.

I know we are busy and sometimes need to grab packaged or frozen foods.... but in my personal opinion, if its weight loss, reducing sodium and fat that we are after, then fresh foods are the best choice.

Spark People is the best. I have learned so much along this journey right here.

I was all excited about it until he announced that it's partnered up with Weight Watchers. I'm not a fan of the change. I will stick with Sparkpeople.

I have no idea what Dr. Oz's challenge is. D:

I think I've finally come to the point in my life where I'm happy with myself and know that I don't have to change or be a certain way for people to like me anymore. I'm just fine and if someone doesnt think I am, screw them.

Dr Oz is a wind up toy for television.. No thankyou, if I am sick I will go to a doctor if I need nutrtion advice I will return to a dietitian..

@BCARSON11, sometimes it is just all about the money.!!

No, I'm not following it.

Don't watch Dr. Oz. The only thing I know about him is that he's on TV and he said something recently about arsenic in apple juice, getting himself into some hot water in the process.

I hadn't heard of it and have plenty of SP challenges going, so no, not me.

Dr. Oz has a weight loss challenge. However, he partnered with Weight Watchers. I'm sticking with SP because of the support and it's free. Of course I'm sure there's big $$$$$ in it for Oz and Oprah because it's a big ad for WW. Still, it's another challenge which might be helpful.

What is the Dr. Oz challenge w/ SP?

I'm in maintenance, so it doens't affect me. However, I am disappointed that he partnered with Weight Watchers. I've never heard him mention Spark which is free!

I think I'm going to combine both Spark People and Dr. Oz weight loss challenge. Anybody else? emoticon
