Amy Beaver Before I Practiced Portion Control

Amy Beaver, Reporter, Toulon, Illinois
LOST: 60 pounds in eight months
FAVORITE HEALTHY SNACK: I use measuring cups for proper portion sizes. And I love dark chocolate, but I buy the expensive kind so I eat only a small square at a time.

Amy Beaver After

FAVORITE WORKOUT: My husband teaches a martial arts class; I join him for two hours twice a week. I also bike and strength-train four days a week.
FIT TIP: It's a long process. Focus on how much better you feel, not the scale, and you'll be more likely to stick with it.
