Peggy's Weight Loss Plan

Age: 36
Height: 5'4"
Weight: 125
Pounds lost: 53
Months at current weight: 14

The Diet: For breakfast, Peggy has a frozen waffle or English muffin and yogurt. Lunch is a Lean Cuisine entrée, and she has fruit for an afternoon snack. Dinner is a turkey burger or chicken with a salad, a vegetable and rice or a sweet potato.

The Workout: Peggy works out at home with sculpting and cardio excercise tapes for 30 minutes, three times a week. She also walks or runs four times a week.

Biggest Temptation: Butter and chocolate. "I've learned to quell my cravings by finding substitutes for both. I use butter-flavored spray to sauté foods and put on vegetables. And I get my chocolate fix with Tootsie Rolls. They're low in fat and take a long time to eat, so they satisfy me."

What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: Low-riding button-fly jeans. "I have a flat stomach now -- and I want to show it off."

Stick-With-It Tip: Remind yourself how far you've come. "I'll pick up a 50-pound bag of dog food and think, she used to carry this around every day!'"

I think this is just great. I would love to do the same. I need to lose 40 lbs. desperately. Mine weight has me taking two blood pressure meds. and looking at my lab result cholesterol meds are next if not something worse. I have had three back surgeries and cannot exercise like you. I can't even walk that much. I try to do Zumba but can only do a small amout at a time. Any suggestions for me? I am so happy for you and I know you must be elated. Great Job!

Now this is what I was looking for. As a stay at home mom, it is extremely difficult to find a reasonable work out to do at home. I have a child at home and can't just leave to go to a gym and don't have the cash for a membership or expensive equipment. We need more of these self-help, at home, no equipment workouts. Thanks.
