Woman from Kirksville, MO Wins $250,000 for Losing Weight and Beating Hypertension
Date:3/10/2008

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 the $250,000 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. Kimberly Barnett, a former soldier, prevailed over six other candidates who themselves won $50,000 for their personal accomplishments and joins Earl Broghfman, who also won $250,000.00. Here's the story of MillionDollarBody's Grand Prize winner.

Kimberly Barnett, of Kirksville, Missouri, is a single mother and a US Army veteran of Operation Desert Storm. Given her military background, she was fit but also addicted to cigarettes. She quit smoking spurred by the pleading of her 7-year-old daughter who "didn't want her to get a black heart and die."

Kimberly managed to stave off a tough nicotine habit but like countless ex-smokers, her appetite spiked and she dove into over eating to compensate. She figured the weight gain was temporary but guessed wrong and added 58 pounds in the first year.

"The problem was I kept eating even after I developed hypertension and was put on medication," Kimberly recalled. Aside from the medical issues, it was hard for her to physically move around. She dreaded the walk up to the scale saying aloud over and over, "please don't be over 200." Yet she clocked in at 208.

What turned things around for Kimberly was an infomercial for Turbo Jam. She committed herself to the program and worked the 58 pounds off in less than a year.

"Using the Beachbody programs really helped me get fit and healthy, and being a part of the Beachbody community lead me to some great friendships and huge rewards," said Kimberly. Working with a coach, she keeps reaching for new goals. She has advanced
