Million Dollar Body(TM) Is Awarding Over One Million Dollars to Help People

Lose Weight and Get in Better Shape

ANAHEIM, Calif., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Fitness website MillionDollarBody.com has just announced a $50,000 Grand Prize winner in its Million Dollar Body Game(TM), an ongoing incentive competition that is giving away over $1,000,000 this year to spur people to lose weight and get in shape. Melanie Ristau of Freeland, Michigan appeared today in Anaheim along with five other $50,000 winners and two $250,000 winners.

Melanie has a vibrant, newly-inked butterfly tattoo just below her bikini line. It symbolizes a transformation that began for her in April of 2004.

"I was unhappy, trapped in a body that was overweight and dumpy. I didn't look in the mirror and I suffered from anxiety and depression," recalls Melanie. The former high school athlete "knew that underneath there were muscles screaming to burst free."

She achieved extraordinary results within the first 90 days. Throughout her adult life, Melanie's size would vary from 12 to 16. She now wears a size 6! She's dropped 36 pounds from 178 to 142 pounds and her body fat has plummeted from 29% to only 15%.

Along the way, she made more than physical life changes. Her blossoming self-esteem enabled her to leave an unhealthy marriage and divorce an alcoholic husband. However, though her daughters gave her great support, her improvements didn't come without the disapproval of other family members.

"Because obesity is a family trait, I received much envy-related resistance from my relatives. As my body started to change, they called me too skinny and commented that my muscles were ugly," said Melanie. "The support of the Beachbody/MDB community was an enormous factor in my success."
