Shreveport, LA Mother Wins $10,000 for Losing 50 Pounds

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

Lose Weight and Get in Better Shape

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Fitness website has just announced another $10,000 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.

Dottie Buck of Shreveport, La., just won $10,000 for losing 50 pounds through a regimen of healthy eating and using Beachbody(R) exercise programs and supplements. Along with over 75 previous winners, she's now eligible for the $250,000 grand prize for Best Transformation of the Year, to be announced in a national television show in March 2008.

The 40-year-old mother grew from a petite 98 pounds to 160 after the birth of her son. A family history of weight gain and a sedentary job as a bookkeeper made it hard for Dottie to shed pounds despite several attempts. "I tried all kinds of diets but the only thing I would lose was my self-esteem, energy, and strength," recalls Dottie. She then switched to over-the-counter diet pills, which curbed her appetite but had unhealthy side effects. "I went from poor nutrition to no nutrition. The result was a thinner body with sagging skin, dull eyes, and a sallow complexion; I lost all muscle tone and most of my energy."

Her body was taking a toll on Buck's self-image. "I felt bad for my husband, and he missed out on a lot of socializing because I was too embarrassed and tired to go out with our friends and I hated feeling like the 'big' one," she recalled.

In a last-ditch effort, Dottie tried the Beachbody Turbo Jam(R) workout program and the company's Performance Formula and Peak Recovery Formula supplements. Through hard work and discipline, Dottie's transformation began. "My blossomy bottom and cottage cheese thighs went from a full serving size to a single helping," Dottie joked. Now 50 pounds lighter, Dottie says, "This is the first time I've ever really seen my true woman's body. My muscles are toned and I have lots of strength and I'm full of energy."

The Million Dollar Body Game was launched in January as the first online contest of its kind. Each month a male and female $10,000 winner are chosen and both are eligible for the $250,000 grand prize to be awarded in March of 2008.

Like other contestants, Dottie submitted the story of her transformation, with before and after photos, and was chosen as the female $10,000 winner for the month of October. Web visitors can follow her story at
