I want my life back!

Hi I'm a mom to 2 kiddos (1 of each). I have only struggled with my weight since discovering I have diabetes. Unfortunately the battle has been exhausting. I want to work towards being healthier and keeping the diabetes and all the problems that go with it to a manageable level. That will help me live longer for my 2 beautiful kiddos.

I had to laugh when I read your comment about popping the Bosu trainers at the gym. Maybe you and I can come up with some type of plan....one of us distracts while the other moves in for the kill. :)

I wanted to welcome you to the CD and Gf group Darlene! It looks like you have some obstacles you're trying to overcome -- congrats to you for finding us. I am not diabetic ( ... yet. I'm trying to stave that off myself - mom's prediabetic), but there might be some diabetic celiacs here, I'm not sure. Put a post out there and ask what works for them.

If you want to learn about celiac and gluten, the best and easiest reference I'd suggest (look at the library?) would be: Gluten Free Living for Dummies. Gluten-free is good in that it takes away gluten grains (wheat, rye, barley & oats), but the substitutes may not be what you're looking for either. Many of the alternate grains are high glycemic. If I were to pick a great grain, it'd probably be quinoa. I haven't used it much myself. I seem to lose weight "when" I can manage more fruits, veggies, lean meats/fish, or a Paleo-diet. My sojourn has brought me to learning more about raw food for more enzymes/nutrition - which in turn feeds your cells so you don't crave. I still eat meat because I wasn't much of a meat eater prior to CD dx and I've found I'm satiated longer. Anyway, you might appreciate the following website: www.healthranger.org . He overcame his diabetes.

And since it doesn't seem like you think you really have celiac disease, it might not hurt to look at that GF Dummies book anyway - you never know. You wouldn't want to change your diet to gluten free until you'd been tested by a doctor - just fyi.

I feel your frustration and am glad you are looking for more answers. I hope you find them. Best wishes to you on this journey. You're teaching your kids how to advocate for their health!
