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!

    Welcome to SP! Glad you joined and I am looking forward to getting to know you. Here are a few tips:
    1. If you haven't already then setup your page, it gives everyone the chance to visit and leave you messages.
    2. Visit other peoples pages, and read their blogs! If you find them motivating, let SP know there is a button on the lower left hand side to tell them.
    3. Find a few teams to join. Feel free to stop by my page to view my teams some of them might interest you.
    4. Learn to forgive yourself. It takes time to form new habits.
    Good Luck! emoticon emoticon
    emoticon By the way we are not dieting here, we are making life style changes. Are you game for that emoticon

    yes it is definitely, thanks for your comment.

    This is why I joined the site now, as I have dieted very successfully, but now I want to be successful at the difficult part, which is maintaining the weight. There's not anymore the adrenaline rush of seeing the scales showing less weight, so now I need to get busy in tracking other things... maybe my carbs, proteines fat and etc will help emoticon
