Amy James Before Strength Workouts Have Changed My Body

Amy James, business owner, Bakersfield, California
LOST: 58 pounds in eight months
FAVORITE HEALTHY SNACK: For an extra burst of flavor with minimal calories, I add blueberries to everything -- yogurt, oatmeal, and cereal. I also make my own salsa. It's great on wheat crackers or with string cheese.

FAVORITE WORKOUT: Strength training has really sculpted and toned my body. My favorite moves are lunges and biceps curls with 15-pound weights.
FIT TIP: Step on the scale regularly. Checking in once a week after you've hit your goal weight will keep you on track, and you can tweak your routine if the numbers start creeping up.
