Leslie Massad, 57
On Jan. 1 of this year, I resolved to walk 5 miles a day, six days a week, and not do anything else to lose weight. My pit bull, Banks, is my daily companion on this journey. I have not missed a day yet. Without dieting, I have now lost 26 pounds, and my body has been dramatically reshaped. I write a daily blog about it at http://fivemilewalkwithapiebaldpit.blogspot.com/.
