Elizabeth Boivin
34, full-time mother
Stillwater, Minnesota

Wake-Up Call: When Boivin heard her 6-year-old daughter complaining, "This skirt makes me look too big," it was an awakening. The child's words painfully echoed her own laments, which always drove her husband crazy: "Do I look fat in this?" "Is my butt too big?" She signed the contract for 12 weeks of healthy living. Even though Boivin had never been more than 15 pounds overweight, she was haunted by body image demons.
