Dr. Oz and Weight Watchers: Register today for Million Dollar Challenge

Dr. Oz and Weight Watchers kick off Dr. Oz's Transformation Nation: Million Dollar You Monday September 26, as part of season-long viewer challenge.

The producers of Dr. Oz, the award-winning, nationally syndicated daily talk and information program just announced a season-long viewer health challenge, in partnership with Weight Watchers.

Its aim is to lead viewers through seven steps towards optimum health, each with its own completion criteria. Semi-finalists will be chosen and then a panel of judges will narrow down 10 finalists with the grand prize winner being voted on by viewers.

Weight Watchers tip to jump start exercise: start with just 5 minutes.

REGISTER FOR CHANCE TO WIN: You must be registered to participate and have a chance to win the grand prize and can do so at www.doctoroz.com.

Here are the steps to follow in the "Million Dollar You" challenge:

Participants must work with Weight Watchers and get weighed to calculate their individual BMI. This can be done on the company's website or at a meeting close to you. The weigh-in and BMI calculation are complimentary to participants once registered for the challenge.

There will be questions related to your family's health history the answers to which will assist the professional weight-loss professionals to determine whether you are getting enough sleep, your stress level and how to add fitness to your life.

Connecting your doctor into the process and learning how to gain support from friends and family are two keys to success. One lucky person who completes all seven steps will walk away with $1 million dollars.

Weight Watchers announced changes to Points Plus program for 2012. New ways to lose.

Dr. Mehmet Oz was quoted in the program's press release about the link-up with Weight Watchers as saying, "I have been saying for years that we need to make it easy for you to do the right thing, and now we have. Every person has the right to look and feel like a million bucks, so we decided we would make $1 million available as motivation. The great news is that even if you don't win the cash, you still win in the long run by getting healthier."

A spokesman for Weight Watchers International said. " We're thrilled to be partnering with Dr. Oz to help transform America's health," said company's President, North America, Dave Burwick. Working together, we can reach a nation at risk. Recent estimates show that by 2030 – in less than 20 years – 65 million more Americans will be obese.

The Dr. Oz program is nationally syndicated. Check local listings for the time and channel in your area.

I have been going to Weight Watchers since Feb.2011. I have lost 28 lbs. and getting so many comments on how good I look. I feel so much better and have more confidence. I am living proof, being 64 you can lose that weight and feel younger. I learned to eat healtier and exercise more.

I am a 58 yrs old woman who had major scoliosis spine surgery about 9 yrs ago. The fusion of 13 vertebra via two steel rods helped control the progressive curving of my spine but I gained fifty pounds since I had the surgery. I am having trouble losing it...probably being menopausal doesn't help matters. Sure could use some help because heart disease runs in my family and I know that being active and at a healthy weight would be beneficial to my health.

Dear Dr Oz - I really don't know where to start . I'm a 42 soon to be 43 year old wife and mother of two children ages 17 & 4 . I know the age gap wow, anyway the problem is not them I'm 5'6 and I weigh 320 pounds . I have other medical issues and my doctor suggested that I get the gastric bypass , my insurance will only cover a small portion of the surgery we can't afford to cover the rest . Mybe its a sign that I'm not suppose to have this surgery , but I still need to have another surgery done but the doctor told me in order for it to be successful I have to lose 150 pounds almost half of what I weigh now I need some serious help to get this weight off for good . I've tried just about everything . My husband and I are huge fans and he watches your show every day and when I come home there is always something you have said on your show , and he will tell me honey Dr. Oz said we should do this or we should do that and he will stick by it. Help me please I want to be here for my family

I've got health issues-- cancer survivor, full knee replacement, and now fibromyalcia. Its just tough to get thru the day let alone diet and exercise (ouch!). We're also limited by fixed income, no fancy foods in our back woods, N.W. Montana. What shoud come first -- medical, dietary,or what?

I believe a challenge is the best way to complete a HUGE task like beating obesity. I am grateful God gave me the desire to help my dear friend and bring on this challenge with her. Dr. Oz is such a caring individual and he sees the need to help so many people. I pray Sheryl will see the real reasons I asked her to do this with me......friendship is a gift you can never replace.
