Madinah Hazim-Adams before I Began to Take Baby Steps to Fitness

Madinah Hazim-Adams 32, insurance agent, Oklahoma City
LOST: 80 pounds in a year and a half
FAVORITE HEALTHY SNACK: I eat a ton of fruit -- peaches, apples, and grapes. I also brew my own tea, chill it, and mix it with apple juice for a hint of sweetness without too many calories.

FAVORITE WORKOUT: Four mornings a week I run two and a half to three miles outdoors with my dog. I recently ran my first 5K in 27 minutes!
FIT TIP: If working out seems daunting, take baby steps. I started by walking and then hiking, and when I felt comfortable, I began running. Once you start seeing results and feeling better, no one needs to push you; it's self-motivating.
