Christi's Weight-Loss Plan
The Diet: "For breakfast I have a bowl of oatmeal with skim milk and a banana. Lunch is tuna on whole wheat and a 6-ounce cup of yogurt. Dinner is grilled chicken, veggies, and brown rice. I snack on air-popped popcorn and frozen grapes or apples."
The Workout: "I do 40 minutes of cardio, like the elliptical machine or fast walking and jogging on the treadmill, four days a week. I also strength-train my upper and lower body for 30 minutes three times a week."
Portion Pointer: "I buy Wheat Thins and other snacks in portion-controlled bags so I don't overindulge."
Best Compliment: "Lots of my old high school friends truly don't recognize me now when I bump into them at local spots or when they look for me on myspace.com."
