How One Woman Lost 90 Pounds Jen Tallman, now 25, used to start the day with two breakfast sandwiches, hash browns, and a cinnamon roll. At night, she turned to takeout, easily notching up 7,000 calories before bedtime. "I wasn t active at all," says the Binghamton, New York, native. Two stabs at group dieting failed, and Jen, 5 7", hit a high of 265 pounds before her 21st birthday. Jen suffered from exhaustion, swollen hands and feet, and headaches. When she read online that these could be symptoms of prediabetes and high blood pressure, she was terrified that her life could be in danger. "I knew I needed a permanent change," she says, "not a quick fix."A gym averse Jen started with daily 20 minute walks. She practiced simple habits such as previewing menus for light options before she went out to eat and ditching the bun on her burger. In four months, she lost 40 pounds. When her progress stalled six months in, around March 2010, Jen sprinkled 30 second running intervals into her walks and kept closer tabs on her daily eats with a smartphone app. As her walks turned into five mile runs and her Moncler Womenspring Autumn Long-Sleeved Grey Jacket calorie count dipped under 1,200 per day, Jen shrunk fast.

She s also an athlete: "This year, I ran my first half marathon back home in Binghamton," says Jen. "It was special for me, since that s where I used to be so unhealthy." As for the ailments that scared Moncler Ski Women Jackets Hooded Zip Big Neck Sky Blue her into losing weight in the first place? Gone. "I feel healthy and relieved, finally," she says.
