Michelle's Weight Loss Plan

Age: 23
Height: 5'4"
Weight: l30
Pounds lost: 60
Months at current weight: 8

The Workout: In addition to teaching aerobics, taking kickboxing classes and cycling, Michelle runs on the treadmill for 30 minutes two or three times a week and works out with weights.

The Diet: Breakfast is a protein shake. For lunch she has a small salad with tuna, some pretzels and an orange. Dinner is baked chicken with red-skinned potatoes, green beans and salad; snacks are yogurt, rice cakes or popcorn.

The Turning Point: When she ate herself sick on Christmas Day. "I felt so down, there was nowhere to go but up," she says.

Stick-With-It tip: Vary workouts. "I never do the same routine two days in a row, so I don't get bored."

Biggest Temptation: Family gatherings. "There's always so much food around. I still struggle to stop at one or two cookies."

What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: Body-hugging workout wear. Last fall she finally felt slim enough to teach in leggings and a tank top. "When I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I can't believe it's really me!"
