After losing more than 140 pounds, SparkPeople member (and resident medical expert) Birdie Varnedore appeared in People magazine in a size-8 bikini, then on "Good Morning, America." The mom of five from Florida was also featured in Chris "SparkGuy" Downie's New York Times best-selling first book, "The Spark."
What motivated this busy mom and doctor to lose the weight? Birdie wanted to live a long and healthy life for her five children, and so did her husband, Nick, who lost 115 pounds on SparkPeople. A neurologist, she has referred hundreds of patients to SparkPeople and spreads the Spark whenever she can. We're thrilled that she has another opportunity to share her story with others.
Today, she's appearing on Oprah's Ultimate Weight Loss Finale. (If you watch closely, you can see a before photo and after video of Birdie in the promo video!)
Birdie (DR_BIRDIE) tells us that she delves into the personal side of weight loss, so we're certain that this is a can't-miss show. Check local listings for time and channels.
I know where I'll be at 4:00, which is when "Oprah" airs here. How about you? Will you tune in?
