Antoinette's Weight Loss Plan

Age: 24
Height: 5'8"
Weight: 150
Pounds lost: 100
Months at current weight:12

The Workout: Antoinette spends an hour at the gym four or five times a week either doing a cardio workout (on the elliptical trainer or the treadmill) or lifting weights, targeting a different muscle group each session. She does 200 sit-ups nearly every day.

The Diet: For breakfast, she has oat-bran cereal with skim milk and a piece of fruit or orange juice. Lunch is grilled chicken and either brown rice or a small portion of pasta. Dinner is four to five ounces of baked chicken and a small salad.

Stick-With-It Tips: Pay careful attention to serving size. "If you have small portions you can eat almost anything. That way, you won't feel deprived."

Another Strategy: Power through the plateau. "When my weight loss slowed three months into my new diet and exercise plan, I increased the time and effort I put into my workouts, and I lost an additional 30 pounds in five months."

Biggest Temptation: Ice cream. "I went cold turkey. If it's not in my freezer, I don't crave it."

What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: A slim-fitting, belly-baring tank top. "The first time I wore one to the gym, I got so many compliments."
