Pounds lost: 40

Her advice:

  1. "Don't give up."
  2. "If you slip and have a bad day, accept it as that and move on — don't dwell or beat yourself up."
  3. "Don't exercise to eat: eat to fuel. It can be yummy at the same time, but be careful about how you're fueling your body (this took me the longest to learn)."
  4. "Moderation is everything — food and beverage intake, exercise, downtime, etc."
  5. "Listen to your body — really, really listen. Are you hungry? Yes. Are you sure? Drink a cup of water — how do you feel now? Tired? Take a nap or a rest day. Listening to your body is the best way to avoid injury, dull workouts, and even larger setbacks."
