Diane Carbonell, author of 150 Pounds Gone Forever, is an advocate for healthy weight loss after having lost over 150 pounds. A mom to seven children, Diane lived as a morbidly obese 300-pound woman for 10 long years before taking charge of her health. In 1998, she reached her goal weight and has maintained her weight ever since. During the past years in weight maintenance, Diane has experienced four more pregnancies, an adoption reunion, and several state-to-state moves.
A blogger since 2009, Diane works hard on community building, sharing her weight loss expertise with local and national audiences, and raising her family. You can connect with her through her Facebook page, Fit to the Finish or like it right from the sidebar.
Because of Diane’s uniqueness in maintaining her impressive weight loss for a long period of time, Diane has been featured in Shape magazine, Woman’s World magazine, several newspapers, and has appeared on both the Dr. Oz show and the 700 Club.
She is featured on Shape.com’s list of 20 Inspiring Weight Loss Bloggers, and MSN’s FitBie website as one of 10 Weight Loss Bloggers You Should Follow.

Diane was the keynote speaker for a Woman’s Health & Fitness Expo in New York and Pennsylvania and speaks at community events, health care events, and gives talks to corporate clients on the benefits of weight loss in the workplace. She authored a weight loss class which she teaches in her spare time.
Both Attune Foods and Sabra selected Diane to be one of their brand ambassadors. Diane hosts Twitter chats, writes, and shares the message of healthy living through healthy eating with online communities and with people she interacts with in real life.
Diane’s message to you is this: “No matter where you are today, you can be somewhere else tomorrow. You can lose any amount of weight that you need to, if you will only take the first step.” Diane’s book goes into great detail about her weight loss experience, gives you practical exercise plans, provides you with 50 recipes, and motivates you to become the healthy person you were meant to be.
