Hi, I live near Milan, Italy. 45 years old.
I have been struggling with my pear shape and body weight since I was 9.
Eventually I have understood that a low-carb lifestyle is best for me. But I live in the country of pane-pasta-pizza... I get crazy every day of my life for I have to cook Italian style for my family!
I'm mother of two sons (16 and 9).
My little one is a bit overweight and I must be a good example for him. He watches me doing aerobics and weights, sometimes he feels like to imitate me and does some kinda "push-up".
UPDATED May 20th 2008: he has lost 13 pounds since September 2007, just doing minibasket ball 2 times a week and watching on snack foods! I'm so proud of him!!!
The elder is lazy... he can eat everything without putting on any weight, and there is no way to convince him to do some fitness activities...
My husband is overweight too.
He was ok before the marriage, he did a lot of sport. Now he is all home and work... and 30 pounds overweight.
I try to cook light meals and don't buy high caloric food... but he eats too much anyway.

Fitness Minutes: 29,549

My Goals:
My first goal is to lose 10% of my body weight. I started with Sparkpeople at 73 kg (161 pounds) and now I'm 70 (154 pounds).
My current fitness goal is to "burn" at least 750-1000 calories a week, and I'm doing fine!


My Program:
I try to follow a low-carb dieting style (how hard it is for an Italian mommy and wife!)
I do my workouts 5-6 days a week.
I have a friend of mine take my vital measures (waist, hips, thighs) so I can see loss in cm/inches even if I don't lose so much weight.

    Hi Anna Marie,

    How have you been since the bootcamp days? Are you still doing it?
    I am, but with less intensity.
    Hope you're having a great Summer with your family.

    Ciao,
    Margie

    Hi, I'm Nancy. Noticed you live outside Milan. I'm headed for Italy the end of this month. I've never been before so I'm very excited. Trying to learn a little Italian as well as 5 months is not enough time to learn really well, so I will do my best.
    Looks like you are doing well with Spark People. I love it here.
    Have a good day!
    Nancy

    Ciao Anna Maria,
    I have just joined PASUSAN in leading the "Amici Italiani / Americani" sparkteam.
    It would be nice to chat with you there and share your results with the rest of the team.
    Hope your computer is up and running again!



    A presto
    Deborah
