"I Broke My Sugar Habit and Dropped 70 Pounds"
Janet's Weight-Loss Plan
The Diet: Breakfast is oatmeal, whole wheat toast, and a banana. At lunch, Janet has turkey on whole wheat, baked chips, and an apple. Dinner is grilled chicken or fish, steamed broccoli, and carrots. She snacks on yogurt and homemade granola.
The Workout: Sixty to 90 minutes of running four or five days a week and 45 minutes of weight training twice a week. She also swims and bikes.
Biggest Temptation: Buttered popcorn. "I often go to the movies with my kids, so I make a decision beforehand -- if I'm going to eat popcorn, I run more that day."
What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: Tucked-in shirts. "I used to wear peasant blouses that covered my rear. Now, I love snug-fitting tops."
