"One Comment Changed My Life"
Leila's Weight Loss Plan
Pounds lost: 194
Months at current weight: 30
The Workout: Leila takes step aerobics classes twice a week and does Nautilus. She also works out with free weights, runs and swims on weekends.
The Diet: Breakfast is All-Bran cereal with skim milk and fruit. Lunch is a salad with vinegar (no oil) and some canned tuna. Snacks are dried fruit or granola. Dinner is grilled chicken with vegetables or pasta.
Stick-With-It Tip: Setting weekly weight-loss goals. "I had so much to lose that breaking it up into small increments made it seem much more manageable."
Biggest Temptation: Store-bought cakes and cupcakes. "I have a real weakness for fluffy-looking desserts."
What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: A sexy pair of cut-off jeans shorts. "When I was heavy, I never wanted anyone to see my legs. Now I love to show them off!"
