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.

    Ooooh thank you for the fitness DVD. Wow! Your son is doing great. But then, he has your good example to follow. I don't mind doing stepping, but I step in the living room and I feel bad when it seems like it's irritating my husband when he's watching tv. I love the bootcamp videos because they're so easy to follow. And I feel great when I do them. I just have a problem fitting them into my day. I noticed a big difference in how I felt on the first week, but I haven't been dedicated enough to lose centimeters. You've done fantastic!
    Have a great week!

    The upcoming Mother’s Day provides a perfect opportunity to the women in my life. Have you ever noticed that women take care of others before they care for themselves? I am sure that this has something to do with biological functions, probably ingrained into our caring behaviors as children, but you need not have had a child to be a caring and loving woman and thus “mother others!”

    Therefore, I wanted to express my appreciation for you in my life. Thank you for being you!

    So often I meet women who say I am just a homemaker. Wow, that is a full time job in itself. Then I meet women who work one or two full time jobs, one being a homemaker, as well. It amazes me to see so many women who raise a family, cook, clean, and provide a shoulder to lean on . . . you are all SUPERWOMEN!! So I want to remind you to love how special you are to those around you. You are fantastic that you are balancing and juggling so many things at the same time. You are powerful and strong, you can become whatever you want, and you can say it with conviction!
    Thank you for being you!

    Hi Anna Marie, How are you? You're doing so well on the SparkItaly challenge! I've joined the Beach bathing costume team and challenge. Why don't you check it out? Spark will send us a prepared exercise routine for a week and we have to add 30 min. cardio every day. I'm hoping that this will help me to be dedicated and to do it every day.

    Have a great week,
    Margie
