Maggie says she's thrilled when
friends, coworkers, or her students notice she has lost weight.
"One of the (motivators) for me was all the praise and comments people
have made to me. My students will comment, 'Gee, you really eat healthy.' They
notice that I get the salads and the fruits and the vegetables. I don't eat
junk. That feels good. Other people will say, 'How did you do that, Maggie?'
