Hi! My name is Maureen.

I joined SP in September 2009, after a time of undisciplined eating and a weight gain of 18 lbs.

April 2013 my husband and I moved from Calgary, Alberta in Canada to Malaga, Spain. We have a country home in the Andulucian area of Spain. The weather here is wonderful and we enjoy the fresh mountain air.

After we moved to Spain, I continued to try and lose my weight but stopped tracking and gained even more.

After 4 years of feeling out of control, I joined Weight Watchers. I have lost 17 lbs and am now within my healthy weight range. I have found a way to still track my WW pts on Sparks and am feeling very much in control of my eating for the first time in 6 years.

My goals are to watch my portions and make wise choices, trying not to overindulge. For me bread, desserts and wine have to be kept to a teeny tiny minimum.

I love how I look in my clothes again and as they say at WW, "No food tastes as good as slim feels!"

I wish all of you the best on your journey to health.
