LESSIE ALVARADO: NOW

145 lbs.!
Alvarado, 41, started working out after a friend brought her along to the gym. "I became so addicted to Turbo Jam kickboxing that I went every day. People could tell I'd lost a lot." She then took her weight-loss further, signing up with an online diet community. "I came across SparkPeople.com one night last year, and it's really helped with the maintenance."
