Margaret's Weight-Loss Plan
The Diet: Breakfast is oatmeal and scrambled egg whites, followed by yogurt and an apple. Lunch: chicken, a vegetable, and brown rice, then later a few slices of turkey and string cheese. Dinner: salmon, spinach, and new potatoes.
The Workout: Circuit training four times a week for 30 minutes and running twice a week for 45 minutes.
Biggest Temptation: Auntie Anne's Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels. "At first I had to stop going to the mall to avoid eating them. Now I satisfy my craving for something sweet after a shopping spree with a vanilla latte with sugar-free syrup and nonfat milk."
What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: A two-piece bathing suit. "I wouldn't be caught dead in one before because I thought I looked humongous from the back."
