All rights reserved. Introduction   The first time I went on a diet was in college. My daily runs turned out to be no match for keg beer and late-night pizza, and I started gaining weight. This was back in the late ’90s, when baggy vintage Levi’s and boxy Patagonia jackets could keep you in denial—so I didn’t realize I was packing on pounds until the summer between sophomore and junior year. A childhood friend and I had jobs scooping ice cream on Martha’s Vineyard, and we’d apparently been eating as much ice cream as we’d been serving because when our parents arrived for a visit in August, my friend’s mom took one look at our significantly stockier figures and exclaimed, “What happened to you girls?”   It was time to face the music. I didn’t starve myself or jump on the latest weight loss trend (which at the time was going fat-free, and we know how effective that turned out to be). Instead, I just started eating a little less and figured out how much I needed to exercise to make up for the occasional slice of cake or pizza. This strategy has served me well over the years, helping me stay slim and strong despite a demanding, sit-on-my-butt-all-day desk job and three kids younger than 7.   The women in this book have their own weight loss tales to tell. Some of them have shed over 100 pounds—most have dropped over 50—and kept the weight off. Their newfound health and confidence has set in motion a domino effect of positive change. They’re an inspiration to me and to everyone who has ever set out on a weight loss journey, which is why I wanted to write this book. On these pages, you will discover the secrets to their success, plus all the tools you need to lose weight and keep it off. My hope is that the Take It All Off Plan helps you develop a passion for fitness and nutrition and sets you on the path to a happier, healthier life.   Chapter 1 The Skinny on Taking It All Off   If you’ve cracked open this book, you’re probably looking to lose some weight. Maybe you’ve been chubby since you were a kid. Maybe you packed it on during colle
