HOW I DID IT

Daughter Inspires 'Eating Smart' Plan

October 05, 1998

My daughter Ellen is 6 months old and I'm back in all my old clothes again--it feels great. Ellen has been a constant inspiration for me to eat healthy.

I eat low-fat foods and avoid empty calories. I eat lots of whole-grain cereals and breads, vegetables, beans and legumes, and fruit. For calcium, I eat nonfat yogurt, fortified soy milk and tofu. I drink lots of water and green tea.

For exercise during and after pregnancy, I have been walking every day, stretching and doing simple calisthenics. Recently, I've added aerobic activity by dancing to the radio at home--which Ellen loves to watch.
