"I Changed My Eating Habits and Lost 75 Pounds!"
How She Did It
Pounds lost: 75
Years at current weight: 3 1/2
The workout: Lindsey runs or walks for an hour on the treadmill five days a week. She also works out with free weights twice a week.
The diet: For breakfast she has a bowl of cereal with skim milk. Lunch is a turkey sandwich or a Lean Cuisine frozen meal. Dinner is chicken or fish with vegetables and rice; she snacks on granola bars, yogurt or nuts.
The turning point: "When I tried to talk my way out of going to the beach yet again. I was tired of feeling jealous of my fit friends."
Stick-with-it tip: "Find a workout partner. Having someone to lean on makes all the difference."
Biggest temptation: "Going out to eat. It's hard to order a salad when everyone else is having burgers and fries."
What she couldn't wait to wear: "A mini jean skirt. I wore it to my twenty-second birthday party, and it looked amazing!"
