How I Lost It
I eased into exercise. I started walking 20 minutes a day and slowly increased my pace until I could run 2 miles at a time. Now I’m training for my fourth 10K race. I’ve surprised even myself—I used to get tired just strolling around the mall.
I order smart at restaurants. When my family eats out, I get the sauces and dressings on the side. If something comes with french fries, I swap them for a salad or a baked sweet potato.
I set small goals. 1. Get below 200 pounds. 2. Buy clothes with no X (goodbye XXL and XL!). 3. Weigh less than my husband. 4. Finally, focus on toning my muscles (see ya, upper-arm jiggle!).
