And the Winners Are

Losing weight is certainly its own reward. But the four winners of this year's Weight Watchers Then & WOW! makeover contest were lucky enough to receive yet another prize: a glamorous weekend trip to New York City that included a professional photo shoot (complete with new hair, makeup and clothes) and dinner with Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York!

Out of more than 3,000 entries, these winning Success Stories were selected for their incredibly compelling and inspirational experiences.

If you only saw the pictures from their makeovers, you'd never guess that this fab foursome had struggled with their weight for years. (Check out all the photo-shoot high drama in the current issue of Weight Watchers Magazine.)

Read Their Stories

Martha was too heavy and tired to properly handle the day-to-day care of her disabled daughter. As a Weight Watchers meetings member, she lost 90 pounds* and got back the energy she needs to be a better mother.

Melissa was sure gastric bypass surgery was her only choice, until she grudgingly agreed to try one more diet. Luckily, that "diet" turned out to be Weight Watchers, and it helped her lose over 175 pounds*.

Nathalie had always been overweight, but after this college student joined Weight Watchers, she went from 312 to 157 pounds* and turned around a lifetime of pain and embarrassment.

Mark resisted joining Weight Watchers meetings until his mother talked him into it. Now 116 pounds lighter*, he's committed to living healthy for his wife and baby son, due in September.

So it's official: Martha, Melissa, Nathalie and Mark are more than just big losers. They're big winners, too!
