Hi there, I'm 42, an Italian woman living in the Republic of Ireland, near Dublin. I got married in my hometown Rome on the 14th of May 2011 in a US size 4 dress. This achievement has been possible for me only thanks to Weight Watchers and Sparkpeople. I have been fat all my life (198/200 lbs) and never had a boyfriend until I nearly reached my goal with Weight Watchers. If I got married in a way, I owe it also to Weight Watchers and Spark. Losing weight is a life changing experience; be able to keep it off is a life changing experience. I just wish I had found out about Spark and WW many, many years ago!

Now, after a 5-year break due to having children, I am back to dieting again. I had problems breastfeeding and had to eat a high-calorie diet because of it; hence, my weight ballooned back to 94.8 Kg, aka 14 stone, 12 lb and 15.9716 oz, aka 208.9982 lbs and a UK size 20. My second son has just stopped breastfeeding, so I'm back dieting again. I lost nearly 4 lbs last week. Go me! :)

My Goals:
My goal now is to go back to less than 121 lbs again. it will take a while, but I'm up to the challenge. My kids need a yummy, healthy mummy!

My Program:
I will carry on using Sparks because it works and it's free!

Personal Information:
I was born in Rome on the 10th of July 1975. I moved to England in 2004 and here I discovered Weight Watchers, lost a lot of weight and met my current fiancé 3 and a half years ago. We've got married in Rome on the 14th of May 2011 and I have walked down the aisle in a US size 4 dress! I would never have dreamt that 7 years ago! It just shows that if you find the right diet for you, you CAN do it! I fell pregnant in 2012 and had my first baby in January 2013. then I had problems breastfeeding, a missed miscarriage, depression because of it, a new pregnancy, a new baby in 2015, more problems breastfeeding... and here I am back, 5 year later, back to even heavier than I started last time. never mind... it will go!

Other Information:
I love reading and writing fantasy stories and children's stories. I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter. And of course, I love my kids to bits :) they were worth every single ounce I gained!

    Hey there!! I just saw your last post. I would hold off on the planks....especially if you're showing. Being pregnant adds stress to your lower back and it's a bit tougher not shifting the weight to your back rather than your core during planks while pregnant.

    Oh my goodness - congratultions on your pregnancy!! That's so wonderful - I'm so very happy for you!!! Yayyyyy!! I'm glad to hear that you're doing well. It's good to know that you're doing well. Congrats for the wonderful Italian holiday, too! Sounds like you had a great time. That's fantastic.

    Things on this end are going really well. I have 3 different personal training and coaching certifications. I've been in maintenance for just under 2 years and I've been teaching others how to lose weight and keep it off. So far, it's going great!!! I miss keeping in touch, though! So, we/I have to do better about our emails! I hope to hear back from you soon!!
