Being from an Italian family, (I'm half Italian and half Irish) food played a BIG role in my life. Celebrations, Holidays, family get togethers and just everyday eat (manga manga). Food was a source of joy, comfort, social life, LOVE. I became confused about foods role in my life...I lived to eat, instead of eating to live! I desire La Vita Dolce (the sweet life) without having to over-consume too many sweets!! What would make my life meaningful and purposeful is finding joy and happiness from within myself and becoming passionate about living life to it's fullest!! I'm starting over away from the great start I had...and low and behold old habits come back quickly!

Member Since: 2/7/2007

My Goals:
My goals are to eat healthier, become more physically active (EXERCISE), drink WATER, become my own best friend! Back in the good ole days I was athletic and enjoyed sports, basketball, swimming, biking, skiing, etc...and would love to do those things again!!

My Program:
Buying healthier foods, learning to cook instead of grabbing the quick fast-food or junk food...cutting back on coffee and substituting with green teas, herb teas, etc. Will begin an exercise routine slowly (due to physical limitations) that I enjoy, actually use my treadmill. Surround myself with positive supportive people.

Personal Information:
I am the mother of one teenage son. He's a freshman in college and I enjoy attending his activities especially basketball games. I live in rural outdoors and miss being active. Love the water and want to look good in a swimming suit!

Other Information:
One of my favorite books is, "Why do I love these People"...couldn't put it down and "Purpose Driven Life". Heros....Abraham Lincoln, Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King, Eleanor Roosevelt, Billy Graham, Helen Keller, Jesus! Favorite Movies: Moonstruck, Gladiator, As Good As It Gets. One of my favorite quotes..."Some battles have to be fought more than once to be won" Margaret Thatcher. Most Favorite by Mother Theresa...Final Analysis

    Hi Anne - nice to meet you. I'm glad you took the time to write a note on my SP page. Sorry about the Irish-Italian ancestory ... seems the celiac rate is higher for JUST those two heritages actually! I'm 1/4 Irish, 1/4 Welsh, 1/2 Finnish (it's also high for the Finns - 1 in 99 school children according to one study). Most text I see says 1 in 133 may have celiac (based on random blood samplings) but only 1 in 4,700 have been diagnosed. So here I am trying to get the word out :).

    A gluten-free diet helps SOME people with fibromyalgia. Google"fibro + gluten" and see what comes up. Maybe it will help you (or google "anti-inflammatory diets" ... and if it includes wheat - beware!)

    Hi Aquarianne,

    Just wanted to welcome you to Christians with Fibromyalgia. I think you'll find an encouraging group of ladies there who are very quick to pray for any needs or concerns you may have. Please introduce yourself to us. Looking forward to getting to know you. BTW, thanks for the info about the google search too. Wasn't aware of that. Jenni
