Like Pennsylvania and many other states, Tennessee has struggled with this issue and in fact is ranked fifth highest for child obesity in the 2007 National Children's Health Survey. The year before, Tennessee Medicaid (TennCare) partnered with the international commercial weight loss program, Weight Watchers, to help treat obesity. Through the TennCare Weight Watchers Partnership Program overweight and obese TennCare recipients under the age of 21 were able to participate with no out-of-pocket cost.
"Our analysis suggests that the TennCare Weight Watchers Partnership Program was associated with a majority of participants meeting the recommendations of the Expert Committee. Providers should, therefore, consider referring their patients to similar structured programs," said Dr. Mitchell.

Simply put, some herbal remedies, all natural dietary supplements, and the like can and do work for their intended purpose. The problem with them is that they are not properly used by the consumer, the dosages may be wrong, the amount your body needs may differ from the usage instructions, or they may simply be placebo effect pills that only work because you believe they will.

Rosie explained to Dr. Oz that she does not like seeing herself in the mirror. She doesnt even notice when she is gaining weight because she never looks at her body in the mirror. Rosie told Dr. Oz that she is in denial about her weight issues. She does not think that losing weight would make her any happier, affect her work as a comedian, or make her less approachable.
. Celebrate your victories! The achievement of any goal deserves recognition. If you move from one goal to the next without giving much thought to what you've learned and how much you've accomplished, you'll miss out on your own progress. Stop for a few moments and drink it in. Acknowledge how far you've come and celebrate your progress. The recognition that you're moving closer and closer to success can be very motivating.
