Makeover Ladies Reveal Transformations on Season Finale of Mission Makeover™ on Lifetime Television

13-week weight loss and health & wellness journey is over for the three women on series hosted by Julie Moran, but new life of health and wellness is just beginning

Pompano Beach, FL - CISION – May 16, 2013) After three months of tough work outs, tough love from coaches, eating habit rehab, and stretching out of their food and fitness comfort zones, the three women of the Mission Makeover™ series have crossed the finish line and come to the end of their journey.

Don’t miss this exciting SEASON FINALE and Big Reveal airing on Monday, May 20th at 7:00 am (ET/PT) on Lifetime Television to watch the stunning results of all their hard work -- and see if they declare ”Mission Accomplished” as healthier, happier women to their coaches, trainers -- and most importantly to themselves.

Starting off with unwanted inches, pounds, and health issues, the ladies have spent the past 13 weeks embarked on a powerful journey of a lifetime – to completely makeover their lives. With plenty of sweat and tears, zigs and zags, and veering off the path, the women worked with trainers and experts to stay on course on their health and wellness journey.

“I feel 10 years younger and I have a lot more energy!” exclaimed contestant Blanca Varela, 47, self-proclaimed “spicy lady,” mother of 5 and from a Puerto Rican family that loves food. Suffering for years from anxiety, depression and diabetes, find out if her health issues have improved.

Alexandra Arguello, 26, paralegal and former dancer said in the first episode that she doesn’t like how her face looks. Is she happy with her new look? “I don’t even consider this a finale for me, I consider this a beginning,” she says.

“You really have to think of the big picture“, says Brenda Selner, a 70 year old realtor on-the-go who wants to keep competitive in her field. “It’s just not you alone.” Does she feel she can now keep up with her younger co-workers? Will she still indulge in her go-to splurge of a glass of wine?

“This season, Mission Makeover ™ truly embraced our motto of “making over our ladies from the inside out… and the outside in” and we are most proud of the fact that their journey to better health is an on-going process that didn’t end with the finale of our show. As we wrap-up this season and start planning for the next, we know the ladies involved will serve as an inspiration to all those seeking to improve their health and wellness, and we hope to help even more women in the future,” says Steve Berlowski, Executive VP of Production, Mission Makeover™.
