KLINGERSTOWN - Oh my gosh, I think I know that lady, she looks so familiar! If you found yourself saying that Monday afternoon while watching the Dr. Oz show on NBC, you were totally correct, you did recognize her.
Chrissy Morgan of Klingerstown was featured on the Dr. Oz show for her participating in The Plan by Lyn-Genet.
"One day I was on the Dr. Oz webpage on Facebook and this pop-up window came up asking me if I would like to try The Plan by Lyn-Genet," said Morgan. Lyn-Genet wrote a book and the show wanted to have some viewers try her 'plan' before the book was released this January."
Morgan said she filled out the information and clicked submit, never thinking she would hear anything about it.
"The next day I got a call from Angela, the producer," said Morgan. "I was shocked when I got the call. She emailed me the three day detox plan and I started it and every day I had to send in pictures of the scale to show my weight loss. By day three I had lost 10 pounds."
Morgan said the plan isn't a diet, she said it's a plan to show people what foods they are reactive to and cause the individual to gain weight. She said some people are reactive to foods that are healthy, while Morgan, herself is reactive to yeast and sugar foods.
On November 20th Chrissy and her friend Karrie Shade of Fearnot were headed to the Big Apple for her appearance on the Dr. Oz Show.
"I was scared to drive to New York City by myself so I took Karrie with and my husband, Kenny, who is a truck driver, made sure he had a load going to New York so I could follow him there," said Morgan. "Driving in New York City is crazy. It was awesome to be in the city at that time. We drove by Macy's right over the big star for the Thanksgiving parade. We arrived in the city early and went to the Today show and watched the Ke$sh live concert, watched the ice skaters at Rockefeller Center and watched workers actually put the star on the top of the tree, which by the way, is so much bigger in real life. I was amazed by the site of it."
Morgan said when she went into the show, she had her own green room to relax in and prepare for the show. She said there were five other women that also did the plan. Since Morgan lost the most weight, she made the cut and had to have her hair and make-up done.
"Dr. Oz and his staff were very nice," said Chrissy. "I had my picture taken with him and received a T-shirt. This was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity."
Since her experience with 'The Plan' by Lyn-Genet, and her experience on the show, Chrissy says Lyn-Genet has sent her a copy of the book and has emailed and talked to her. She wants to help Chrissy and the others to reach their goals.
Chrissy planned to watch the show in her Klingerstown living room when it aired this past Monday at 3 p.m.
"I was a little nervous to see myself on TV, knowing that millions would be watching, but then my friend Karrie calmed me when she said, 'only 100 or so will actually know you."
