POMPANO BEACH, Fla. —  Thomasville native Julie Moran will host  the award-winning series “Mission Makeover™,” which premieres Monday with a new season and a new mission.

Season three of the 13-week special series created and produced by O2 Media Inc. and airing on Lifetime® will premiere 7:30 a.m. (ET/PT) Monday.

“Mission Makeover” follows the powerful journey of six women who are ready to fight for the health and wellness changes they need to make in their lives.

Moran, former host of “Entertainment” Tonight,” will host “Mission Makeover for the second time, but this season offers a twist: Moran will gear up and jump deep into the trenches right alongside the ladies to offer support, encouragement and a shoulder for their tears, or a high-five for their cheers as they sometimes stumble and fall, and sometimes climb to triumph along their quest for health and wellness.

Exclusive weight loss/weight management meal and e-tool sponsor South Beach Diet will guide the women through their personal health and wellness transformation by helping them learn how to make better food choices, the importance of strategic snacking and how to fuel their bodies to take better care of themselves and those who rely on them.

They will lose weight, gain health and feel more energized throughout their transformation journey.

“Mission Makeover” partnered with Sports Authority, who will outfit the ladies with sports equipment, apparel and footwear as they encourage the women to rediscover activities the whole family can enjoy and make fitness fun again.

The six South Florida women will form a tight unit as they wage their war on weight, slack muscles, late-night snacking, poor food choices and family struggles. Viewers will be on the front lines of watching the drama unfold each week as a personal trainer, nutritionist and life coach push the ladies to the limit.

Who will make it to the finale and big reveal airing on Monday, May 19, to declare “Mission accomplished?”

While the women share their journey to Health and Fitness, viewers can join them from home via the website www.thebalancingact.com/mission-makeover where they can start their own journey, view behind-the-scenes action, watch the women's personal video diaries, and find motivational tips, advice and weekly recipes.
