"I Lost 69 Pounds!"
Judith's Weight Loss Plan
Height: 5'10 1/2"
Pounds lost: 69
Time at Current Weight: 24 months
The Diet: Breakfast is grapefruit juice and an apple. Lunch is fish and a green salad. For dinner, she has lentil soup or beans and rice and vegetables. Snacks are kashi (a whole-grain cereal) or a slice of protein bread topped with soy margarine and honey.
Stick-With-It Tip: "Recognize when you are eating out of habit, not hunger. Learn to tell the difference between feeling satisfied and feeling stuffed."
Biggest Temptation: Chocolate cake. "I let myself have it sometimes, especially when I'm a little depressed. You have to figure out which sacrifices you can live with—and which you can't."
What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: A tankini bathing suit. "I never thought it would fit. But I tried it on, and it looked fabulous."
