"I Conquered My Cravings and Lost 52 Pounds"
Nancy's Weight-Loss Plan
Pounds lost: 52
Months at current weight: 15
The Diet: Breakfast is a low-fat yogurt, cereal, or an egg-white omelet and a banana. For lunch, Nancy has a salad with chicken, a grilled veggie wrap, or a turkey sandwich. Dinner is often fish and a salad.
Stick-with-It Tip: Calm cravings with healthy foods. "When I want something sweet, I have a piece of fruit first. That's usually enough to satisfy me."
Biggest Temptation: Desserts, especially pie, chocolate, and cookies. "I treat myself once a week, usually splitting something with a friend."
What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: A slim-fitting tank top. "Even when I was thin in college, I didn't have great arms. But now that I've built up my triceps, a revealing tank top is the perfect way to show them off."
