"My Friends Helped Me Lose 45 Pounds"
Kelly's Weight-Loss Plan
The Diet: Breakfast is a bagel with peanut butter and an orange. At lunch, Kelly has tuna fish and tomato on whole wheat with a scoop of trail mix. Dinner is grilled chicken, brown rice, and steamed asparagus. She snacks on low-fat yogurt and protein bars.
The Workout: Kelly runs or cycles 60 minutes six times a week; she also strength-trains three times a week and does Pilates once a week.
Biggest Temptation: Pizza. "I still eat pizza, but without the meat. I also eat a salad first to feel fuller."
What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: Anything sleeveless. "I used to cover my arms at all costs; now I have some definition and can wear tank tops without being embarrassed."
