Lisa Renwick -- our new work-in-progress -- reports on her first month of training with the fitness makeover team. Good news: She lost 4 pounds, and has changed her diet and attitude for the better.

Introducing Lisa

Would you accept a year of free training, nutrition counseling, and life coaching -- in exchange for having your "before" picture published in a magazine? Lisa Renwick, 37, a technology recruiter, took us up on that offer. Each month we'll check in with her to see how close she's come to her goal of slimming down and getting healthy.

Lisa Says...

About six years ago, I was fit enough to do a mini triathlon -- running, biking, and swimming a combined 15.7 miles. Now I have back fat and a big belly and my boobs are humongous! Between work and the kids, it's hard to find any time to take care of myself. That's why I decided to hand my body over to FITNESS's team of experts for the next year.

Where I Am Now

I already eat plenty of healthy foods; I just eat plenty of junk on top of that. The 8 p.m. hour is my danger zone. Plus, I have nerve problems called neuromas in both of my feet, which sometimes makes working out painful. But I'm hoping that losing weight might alleviate the condition. I'm also hoping to avoid diabetes, which runs in my family, and get relief from the aches in my knees and back.
