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!

    Thank you for reading and commenting on my "sweet depression" blog. I appreciate you sharing your story. It definitely made me think. Yes, I do think I have some "reinventing" to do. I have been raising children since I was 15 years old, and I am still raising children (well, my last child at home, now) all these decades later. I do think there is a hereditary component to my emotional struggles but I don't think it is the only factor, and I don't think it is insurmountable, it just requires me to be more vigilant and not repeat some of the behaviors I have observed in my family members. I appreciate your compassion, and I admire you for overhauling your life - you deserve all the sweet rewards you are now enjoying.
