Stephanie's Weight Loss Plan

Age: 28
Height: 5'9"
Weight: 155
Pounds lost: 122
Months at current weight: 16

The Workout: Stephanie runs five miles, four times a week. She also does weekly plyometrics with a trainer.

The Diet: Breakfast is whole-grain cereal, skim milk and fruit. Lunch is grilled chicken or fish, salad and a baked potato. Dinner is chicken or fish or tofu stir-fry and vegetables.

The Turning Point: When she couldn't see her toes. "I was afraid for my health."

Stick-With-It tip: Keeping a journal. Stephanie wrote down how great she felt after each workout. "When I was looking for an excuse to skip exercise, I'd flip through it for inspiration."

Biggest Temptation: The Burger King drive-thru. "Some mornings I just want to hit the snooze button instead of getting up to make something healthy."

What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: Slim capri pants and a sleeveless sweater. "I couldn't believe how great they looked on me."
