Dr. Oz's Buddy Up for Weight Loss Meetup

One of the best ways to ensure that you reach your fitness goals is to have a fitness buddy to help keep you on-track and focused. On November 30, 2011, Dr. Oz had the first Buddy Up for Weight Loss all across the country, and it was an incredible success. Stay tuned for future meetup events. This is a chance for all of you who want to get in better shape to connect with people in your neighborhood so you can take on the challenge together.
