Big, exciting news… I got booked today to be a guest on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”!  I’m appearing on the show with the man that has helped me from Day 1 – Richard Simmons – to talk about my weight loss journey and success.

I actually have a long history with “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” – I worked there for 7 years, from the show’s launch in 2003 until I resigned in mid-2010.  It was backstage there that I first met Richard – which I talk about here – and meeting him, simply put, changed my life.

Today is actually the 1-year anniversary of the day that I first met Richard – so finding out today that I’ll be going back to the place where my journey began, to share my story with with world…  well, I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep tonight!

You can watch me on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” next TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2010, so spread the word, set your TiVos, and call in sick!  Go to to find out when it airs in your area – plug your zip code in the field in the upper left corner.

Keep it up, David!

  7. Hi David,
    I too struggle with weight. Recently, I have started these protein shakes by Body By Vi. Have you ever heard of them? I have lost 16 lbs since starting them, and feel great. Good luck with your goals,
    Sincerely Nicole DiBella
