Laura Jones, 32
Total Weight Loss:  150 lbs

"It took me four years to lose 125 pounds, which I maintained for about four years," she says.  "Then it took me about five months to lose the last 25.  I hit my goal in August of 2007."

Laura originally cut out hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup and caffeine.  After the first 100 pounds, she started counting calories and using the Weight Watchers Points System to lose the last 50 pounds.

Laura's breakfast choices:

  • When I was first losing weight, my favorite breakfast was a large slice of organic white cheddar cheese. It has enough fat/protein to get you through the morning, but doesn't pack on the calories.
  • I also like (but rarely have time for) a scrambled egg on a whole wheat English muffin. The incredible edible egg, to be sure! Protein, fat, and general goodness.
  • When pressed for time I'm more likely to have a warm drink with milk or half-and-half, like decaf coffee or chai tea. Again, the dairy provides protein, but much easier to take on-the-go.
