Body Bio: "When I hit puberty, I gained a lot of weight; by age 18, I weighed 206 pounds. I tried all sorts of diets, but I could rarely ever get my weight below 190. I was so unhealthy that some days I didn't even have the energy to get out of bed."

Diet Do: "I eat a ton of veggies, because they're a low-calorie way to feel full. I make sure they take up the most room on my plate whenever I'm having a meal."

Top Fitness Tip: "Plan your workout at least a day or two in advance, and stick to the time you've allotted. If you make it a priority, you'll get it done."

Healthy Bonus: "I used to always have trouble sleeping through the night, but not anymore. And the anxiety attacks, hormonal mood swings, and crazy PMS I once suffered from? All that's over now."
