"I Lost 100 Pounds -- and Found Energy to Spare!"
Sarah's Weight Loss Plan
Weight: 118 pounds
Pounds lost: 102
Months at current weight: 25
The Workout: Every day, Sarah runs two miles on a treadmill or bikes for 30 minutes, works out with free weights and does 50 sit-ups. She plays tennis with her husband on the weekends.
The Diet: Breakfast is an egg or oatmeal with orange juice. For lunch, she has a salad with a tuna sandwich and an apple. Dinner is baked chicken or fish and a vegetable. She often has a piece of fruit as a bedtime snack.
Stick-With-It Tip: Use music to stay motivated during exercise. "An upbeat song helps me keep my energy up and prevents boredom."
Biggest Temptation: Pepperoni pizza and french fries. "When I get a craving for fast food, I have Jell-O or a few Fig Newtons instead."
What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: An above-the-knee denim skirt. "When I was heavy, I used to wear long dresses to hide my legs. Now that they're slim and muscular, I want to show them off."
