Diane Carbonell, author and formerly obese mother of seven children, will be a guest on fitsmi Radio on Thursday, March 29th at 3:30 pm (ET) to share what motivated her to lose 150 pounds, how she did it and how she’s kept it off for 14 years through four pregnancies and numerous life changes. Linda Frankenbach, founder and CEO of fitsmi.com and fitsmiForMoms.com, will host the live half-hour radio program.
Ms. Carbonell, who at one time reached a peak weight of 305 pounds, will discuss her “Fit to the Finish” do-able three point program and her new book, 150 Pounds Gone Forever: How I Lost Half My Size And You Can Too.” As a mother and now a family weight-loss coach, she will share her thoughts on the role of the parent in the national obesity crisis and her personal tips for getting and staying healthy.

Children learn from their parents and Diane is the best example of how taking control of your health can benefit the entire family.”
Ms. Carbonell is a nationally recognized advocate for overweight moms to find time to take care of themselves, which will in turn create a stronger and healthier family as a whole. The interview will become available on podcast at fitsmi Radio.
