In my past life, ha ha, I was a 6th grade teacher. I am now a homeschool mom to 2 beautiful miracles. I have suffered unknowingly from Celiac Disease for many decades, and that wreaked complete havoc on my body. Because I am overweight, none of my doctors ever thought to check me for it. :( I was finally diagnosed in 2007, but my body is still paying the repercussions.

Here are some of the symptoms I've suffered over the years from Celiac. (I'm listing this in case it might help someone else.) Infertility, multiple miscarriages, fatigue, constipation, short term memory loss, damage to the following organs: liver, gall bladder, esophagus, stomach, adrenal gland system and lower brain stem.

If you have had unexplained symptoms that won't go away, ask to be tested. Current research shows that just as many overweight people have Celiac, OR people that just can't lose weight.

The good news is that once you remove gluten from your diet, most of these health issues will resolve themselves. Unfortunately, there a few health issues that don't get better, like the short term memory loss. That part of the brain doesn't always recover well. So the sooner one gets a diagnosis, the better.

This is why I'm here--to lose this weight that kept me from getting an accurate diagnosis!!!! My doctor has put me on the HCG diet and this is my first round. I'm so grateful for the encouragement I've found here and hope that I can be an encouragement to others.

    How much time do you have left on this round? I was thinking of starting a meal club where we can each make several of a hCG P2 recipe and then share. You could even trade your Super Supper meals you can't have (if you still have them.) What do you think?

    You're quite welcome! I'm so glad they had that effect on you. God is good all of the time! You are also an inspiration to me. Yeah I like those scriptures...God's word really is alight unto our path. Once you start reading it and studying...and I thank GOD for the desire to know more about him and his word, but once you start your eyes start opening up to how good he really is! Be blessed and keep up the good work! We can do all things through Christ! (If we are doing them in his will and not our own.)
