While I would love to lose weight, I seriously need to concentrate on my health. As I've seen someone else say ... if I concentrate on my health the weight will surely follow.

Have recently learned I am either gluten-intolerant or have celiac's. This has helped tremendously with the weight seemingly to fall off. It's also drastically helping with my goal to be a raw vegan again :) It was easy back when I was just a Marine and mom. Now I've been through a divorce, full time school to earn my bachelor's, and now am a graduate student plus home school plus play taxi to everyone. While I love my life, it's full and I have to rediscover the ways I used fix meals and snacks ahead of time which make life waaaaaaaay easier!

    That's neat about the beanie. I don't have that issue in the house, but when I go outside, if my hands, my head and my feet are warm, the rest of me stays warm too.

    Hope you're able to find some resolution for the food intolerance issues your family has. I can't imagine how you're able to cook for everyone!

    Happy Valentine's Day!

    Hi there!

    Saw your reply to woofgang about the celiac - have you been formally tested? I've often said that if being celiac were I crime that there is enough "circumstantial evidence" (even without gastro issues) to put me away for life - I have 1 son who is autistic, 1 who is speech delayed, a daughter who has attention deficit, I have Hashimoto's...the list goes on.

    I have no idea how I can get my doc to order a celiac test for me because I don't fit the "textbook" example. Any ideas?

    BTW - Is your "beanie" a cpap? If so, that's a cute name for it - I just call mine "sleeping buddy" - lol!
