"I Gave Up Fast Food and Got a New Body"
Mary's Weight Loss Plan
Pounds lost: 34
Years at current weight: 2 1/2
The Workout: Mary walks or jogs two to three miles in the morning and evening, five times a week. She also does sit-ups and push-ups three times a week.
The Diet: Breakfast is fruit, orange juice and scrambled eggs. Lunch is a salad or pasta. Dinner is fish with rice and a vegetable.
The Turning Point: On a vacation in California, when she was confronted with a beach full of slim, gorgeous women.
Stick-With-It tip: Fitting in some exercise. "It's better to run one mile than none at all."
Biggest Temptation: Eating at restaurants. Mary used to eat out almost every night, indulging in fatty foods like nachos.
What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: A fitted, sleeveless black dress. "I can finally wear form-fitting clothes!"
