Kathy's Weight Loss Plan

Age: 26
Height: 5'8"
Weight: 136
Pounds Lost: 89
Months at Current Weight: 5

The Workout: Kathy does something aerobics six days a week, either running three miles, taking a cardio kickboxing class or riding her bike 10 miles to her husband's office to meet him for lunch and then pedaling home again. She does weight training five days a week, switching between her upper and lower body.

The Diet: Breakfast is bran flakes with milk and a grapefruit. Lunch is steamed chicken, rice and veggies. Dinner is often a zucchini and mushroom salad with a tuna sandwich on whole wheat.

Stick-With-It Tip: Keep your biggest clothes in the back of your closet. "When I felt discouraged because I'd hit a plateau or when I needed an extra push to go out and exercise, I'd put them on to remind myself how far I'd come."

Biggest Temptation: Peanut butter cookies. "I can't live without them, so I make them with reduced-calorie peanut butter and egg whites. Still, they aren't exactly calorie-free, so I treat myself to just one or two."

What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: A summery, sleeveless pink dress. "When I was heavy, I wore big tent tops and long sweatshirts -- never anything sleeveless."
