Help A Fellow Fly Fisher Girl Win A Million Dollars!

Jen McElroy and her husband read FFG on a regular basis, and wanted to share Jen’s story.

Jen entered “Dr Oz’s Transformation Nation Million Dollar You” and has advanced from out of 1 million entrants to the final 10.

“I’ve been overweight since I was a teenager. My mom took me to see a nutritionist when I was a freshman in high school—the earliest I remember knowing I had a problem. I have a family history with weight problems, so I just thought that was going to be my life and didn’t pay much attention to it. I tried to diet on my own, but something would stop me and I never really got it together. In July, 2010, weighing in at 382 pounds and battling active Crohn’s disease, I decided to change my life. I joined Weight Watchers and was able to lose some of the weight. Then my sister called me and asked me if I wanted to participate in a 5K. I immediately said yes. In 2011 I walked in six races (four 5Ks, one 9K and one 10K). I feel like having lost this amount of weight is awesome and I can finally live my life rather than watching it go by.”

Jen is a fly fisher girl, and traveled to Alaska for her fly fishing honeymoon.

Jen now…
