Studio One features woman’s weight loss journey and healing oils

Many people work out and eat healthy to achieve a trim figure. Megan Graham has always struggled with her weight. “I grew up as a heavy kid and my parents were always trying to put me on several diets,” Graham says. Over a three year period she lost 155 pounds by changing her daily routine. Graham recently won the Progresso Soup “Souper You” contest due to her inspiring slim-down story. Tune in to Studio One to hear how Graham achieved her fitness goal.

Also, one woman says she uses the power of nature to heal common ailments. Paula Peterson, certified holistic life coach, uses therapeutic oils that she says helps cure high blood pressure, high cholesterol and even the common headache. Peterson makes and sells a variety of oils and offers advice and treatments. “I feel like I am sharing what I have learned from others. I feel like I am doing a disservice to others if I don’t share my knowledge,” Peterson says. Learn how oils may lead to a healthier and happier life on the next edition of Studio One.
