Amanda Maldonado  Before My Dad Became My Running Buddy

Amanda Maldonado, fitness club employee, Covina, California
LOST: 55 pounds in a year and a half
FAVORITE HEALTHY SNACK: I avoid temptation by making my lunch at home -- turkey sandwich, salad, yogurt, and granola. Mid-afternoon, raw almonds and grapes are my go-to picks.

FAVORITE WORKOUT: I started running with my dad, and now we motivate each other to keep going. Toning moves on a stability ball are my strength routine of choice.
FIT TIP: If I get a craving, I distract myself; I'll go out for a walk or read. Before you know it, I've totally forgotten about whatever I wanted to eat.
