Laura Rios Before I Plan Ahead to Stay on Track

Laura Rios, customer service representative, Woodbridge, Virginia
LOST: 95 pounds in a year and a half
FAVORITE HEALTHY SNACK: I'm really into spinach. I add it to everything -- wraps, salads, and eggs. I also have to have a Golden Delicious apple every day. Add peanut butter, and it's like a treat.

Laura Rios After

FAVORITE WORKOUT: When I train for marathons, I do long runs twice a week mixed with sprint intervals. I also cross-train on the elliptical, or I go swimming.
FIT TIP: Plan ahead. On Mondays, I stock my office fridge with all the fixings I need to make lunches for the week. When I get hungry, I have no excuse to go out and pick something unhealthy.
