Body Bio: "I've been overweight my whole life. But during my first day on the TV show, I realized I'd never be able to save my two sons, ages 2 1/2 and 11 months -- or myself -- in an emergency. After that, I was determined to get buff, especially because my husband is an army lieutenant who could get deployed to Iraq at any time. My kids need me!"I Needed to Get Healthy for My Kids
Diet Do: "I've started going to the local farmers' market for fruits and veggies. I can't decide what's more amazing: the low price or the high quality. Healthy living on a budget is easy!"
Top Fitness Tip: "Never say you don't have enough time for a workout. I bought a jogging stroller on Craigslist for 50 bucks -- which means I can run and take my children out for some fresh air whenever I want."
Healthy Bonus: "My energy level has skyrocketed. Before, I couldn't keep up with my kids. Now, I can run a 5K!"
