Alex Rides Again
Dr. Phil checks back in with 13-year-old Alex, who couldn't get on his horse.

A few months ago, 13-year-old Alex was 210 pounds and couldn't get on his horse. But after reading Dr. Phil's The Ultimate Weight Solution and Jay's The Ultimate Weight Solution for Teens, Alex and his whole family committed to a lifestyle change.


"Alex has lost a total of 52 pounds and is only nine pounds from his goal," says his mother, Kelly. "I have lost 32 pounds and have just six more to go. My husband Jeff shed 47 pounds and has already hit his goal."

Kelly praises the program for turning their lives around. "You cannot imagine how your program has changed our lives," she says, thanking Dr. Phil.
