154 lbs.! "At 22, I topped 300 lbs. and my doctor became concerned; I have diabetes and high blood pressure in my family," says Guines, now 27, "I decided enough is enough, and a friend who had also struggled with her weight convinced me to do L.A. Weight Loss together. It took time getting used to foods I hadn't eaten, like asparagus, but I have a new passion for broccoli! And seeing the weight come off made it easy to stick to. So now when I go to parties, I eat beforehand!"
