Spinning into control

“I always wanted to try spinning, and a new place opened up in my neighborhood so I tried it. Each class leader does a slightly different program, and the endurance one is my favorite. The new bike is different from the spinning bike—I’m still getting used to it, but I’m having a great time riding in the park!”

I’m enjoying clothes now—it’s fun to dress up!”

Single digits

“Pure determination was my secret weapon. This time around I went full gung-ho. A week after giving birth to my third baby, I went through all my clothes. I had sizes from 12 up to 18. I said to myself, I can’t stay like this, in these clothes. I got rid of almost all of it and started on the Plan. Now, I’m in a size 6.”

That dress

“One of my favorite things to wear right now is a white dress of mine that’s form fitting and feels great. White can be hard to wear: In the past I may not have been able to get away with it, but now I love to put it on, especially in the summer when I’m tan.”
