Seven Oakwood Hospital nurses have banded together to collectively lose 500 lbs.

It’s a story that Metro Detroit will be buzzing about on Wednesday, but WWJ Health Reporter Sean Lee got a sneak preview.

“When you’re that heavy, you lose out on a lot of life,” said Oakwood RN Trina Miller, who once weighed 300 lbs.

She says a commercial for an open casting call for the TV show “Extreme Weight Loss” convinced her to do something about her weight once and for all. “They followed me for a month or so on weight loss and that, and and then ultimately I ended up being selected,” she said.

Not only did the producers pick Trina to be on the show, they also agreed to help six of coworkers lose weight as well.

Learn more about these ladies at this link, and tune in to WWJ Newsradio 950 on Tuesday to hear more about their remarkable transformations. The Extreme Weight Loss”  episode featuring the Oakwood nurses airs at 8 p.m. on ABC.
