Happy 35th Birthday to Me!

What an amazing feeling it was to be on The Dr. Oz Show, standing in the Truth Tube and having Dr. Oz reveal my “RealAge” – it used to be 55, and I was able to bring that RealAge down to 34! Seeing as though I was 41 at the time, you can only imagine the pure bliss I was feeling in that moment! If it wasn’t for Oprah bringing Dr. Oz into my life, I don’t know where I would be; probably still fat, unhealthy and miserable! Thank you Oprah, seeing Dr. Oz was my “light bulb” moment.

The best part about being “34” is the amount of energy I have. I’ve never felt more alive than I do now! Plus Dr. Oz has made it so easy for me to maintain my weight. I don’t count calories; my hand and plates are my measuring cups. I don’t use a “point system” and that has made it so easy for me!


Before going on Dr. Oz’s plan, I tried and failed many diets. I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life adding up calories or counting points, I have too many other things going on in my life. Dr. Oz’s plan works! It’s simply just a healthy lifestyle – it’s a permanent change and we all know change is good. I’m living proof of it!

You can check me out in the truth tube here. I think that watching me in that moment may just inspire you to live like I live!

On February 8th I turn 42, but my real age will be 35. The best part is that I feel better and have more energy than I did in my 20s! I’ll continue on my journey of helping as many of you as I can. It is such a privilege to be one of Dr. Oz’s Wellness Warriors. I love sharing with you all on a week to week basis in hopes you to will have that “light bulb” moment and make that healthy lifestyle change!

Thank you Dr. Oz for the best birthday gift ever, the gift of my health, energy and RealAge! You gave me back the life I had left behind many years ago.

As always you can also find me on Facebook; Jennifer Lynn Reopell Szall.
