The obesity epidemic is so dire, an estimated 86 percent of the population will be overweight by 2030. Dr. Phil challenges Americans to get real about shedding pounds with his biggest weight loss series ever: The Ultimate Weight Loss Race! First up, meet the contestants. Annette and Emilie are college roommates who blame junk food and cafeteria buffets for their bulging midsections. Lauren is a pastry chef who calls food a drug, while her twin, Joe, says he’s overweight because he’s "a total slacker." Phil is a police officer who can no longer fit into his uniform, and his wife, Tiffany, jokes that she loves McDonald’s more than their children. Verne says he’s frustrated that he let his weight spiral out of control, and he blames himself for his son, Patrick’s, obesity. Finally, brothers Richard and Jeffery were once star football players but now say their combined weight is 731 pounds. Follow these five teams on a countrywide race as they compete against each other and complete challenges at some of the nation's most famous landmarks and cities. And, don’t be a couch potato when you can join this weight loss movement! Log on to DrPhil.com on Wednesday, September 10 to get healthy eating tips, support and to follow the progress of your favorite contestant in our new weight loss community. Then, join the discussion here.

Find out what happened on the show.

Weight Loss

Dear Dr Phil

                   Even though I didn't get picked for your ultimate weight loss. I will tell you it has giving my family a new way to look at things since you said you where going to do this again. We all that that point said if you didn't pick us we where going to loss weight any way and change how we work and eat.

                    Since that time I sent in my tape and the last time I traveled to CA to see your show in Dec Last year and spoke to Wendy. Even though your show didn't do taping because for the loss of your friend Roger King. I was at 209 and since then I have lost over 29 pounds and my daughter Jenny about 26 pounds and my husband 32 pounds. We are working hard to get to are goals and if I do I'm coming back to you show with the picture we had taken with you to see the different. It time we all look at are self and try to loss are weight and feel better about who we are. This can really bring family's and friends together if you want to do something good in you life. I just want to be around for my kids and live longer. I believe this is a start.   

                                     One of your biggest Fan Laureen

Thrilled you are picking this topic up again!

 I for one am thrilled to have this topic brought to the forefront once again. I could not believe when you said it have been 4 years, but I guess it has. I was able to loose a TON of weight when you first started the Challenge way back when. Sadly enough, I lost my mother and  the hole that she left screamed for me to feed it. Which I did. All my habits that I had worked so hard to change fell out the window. I put on more weight then I had lost, same old story.  I was so sickened by the way I was treating me, I went under. A year ago this past Janurary, I saw Bob Greene on the OPrah show and the light came on again. I took what you had taught me and combined it with the online help Bob offered.  I am happy to say I am down about 60 pounds again. Could NEVER have done it without my online friends! that support combined with a combination of things has gotten me back on the right path. Leading my best life. It hasn't been easy and I have faultered a lot this past year but it is a struggle I plan on beating. I have to for me! I know it is ongoing and I know I have to learn to cope with things rather then eat them. I know! I know!
I have to treat myself like I would a best friend!
Thank You Dr phil, for giving me the basics to succeed!
I look forward to this new year and will watch faithfully!  
Here we go again!! :):):):)

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa Hooooooooooooo!

I lost over 100 pounds back in 2004 and have kept all but 15 pounds off.  I've been back to the book and realized that I'd let a few things slip and now I'm back on track and can't wait to see the new Challenge to help with that little bit of extra motivation.  I'm trying to find a way to watch them on the net as in Australia we have to wait 6 months!  I can't wait that long again!!  Just call me impatient but I get sooooooooo wrapped up in these shows.

 

angel4023 - Please do give the book another go.  It does work and if you need extra support we can give it to you.

 

Here's to the new lot of Losers who are going to be healthier and fitter than ever before. 

 

Good on ya, Dr Phil (The GBO - Great Bald One)
