Afraid to eat and 2 inches to skinny 10

Friday, July 26, 2013

I went to the doctors to address this constipation/bloat issue once and for all!!! Duh she told me if cheese constipates me then dont eat it, and also food sensitivities have the reverse results then what I have been experiencing. She put me on mirlax and fiber, then sent me on my way. I swear no doctor i deal with want to test me for wheat sensitivities!!! I know when I eat it I get gas bloat and painful trips to the bathroom! Then I look 6 months prego for the rest of the day emoticon
I am cutting dairy which really isnt that hard and doing alternative carb options!!! Sweet potatoes, quinoa, brown rice, etc. I also bought some gluten free flour for baking!!! I am day 2 gluten free and I am still kinda bloaty but I feel much better!! Then this crazy person in my head warns me all day not to eat! Its screaming you will get gas! Your stomach will hurt!!! You will look HUGE! Its crazy really. I hope by the end of the week things will even out emoticon
I finally lost a pound! YAY! And i decided to get out my skinny 10a!! the ones I couldnt even pull up a few months ago
My favs

My super skinny levis

They are so tight my butt looks flat!!!!!!!
I wore my Gap1969 jeans size 10 because they are boyfriend cut! HA! Which means they actually fit emoticon

I still see a huge bloaty stomach

but I feel if i keep my diet in check, next time I take these pics my waist will be 2 inches smaller and my jeans buttoned!

Sparkle friends emoticon

    You are probably right. Be careful and just search for gluten free because a lot of companies say gluten free but the items are bad for you.
Have you read wheat belly?

    You know your body. $crew doctors sometimes. Wheat is one of my many food allergies. It was tested through my allergist, but I didn't get tested for Celiac. They have wanted to, but I have dragged my butt about it. I absolutely cannot take any of those fiber mixes. I get both itching in my mouth and severe bloating that sometimes goes in the other direction. Now knowing all of this you would think that I would completely avoid it. I don't, I rotate it and only have it in small doses. I begged the BF to make pasta the other night (haven't had it in months) and boy did I suffer. TMI alert to come... It quickly forced its way out of me and the next day I had an enormous belly. Yes, many of my allergies cause bloat.

I am blessed with a primary care doc and a few specialists who are open to the dietary side. Have had to go to a GI doc and after my last scare he talked about a procedure to help with my pancreas and liver. Thing is it is pretty certain I will get pancreatitis. Not wanting anything to do with that i asked about fasting and diet. He was eh, about fasting but mentioned that I may want to try and go wheat free because of studies he is reading. Thought that was cool:) Hope you get it all figured out, Oh, I LOVE quinoa (prefer it over wheat pasta).

Looking great in those jeans. You have a similar build to me. Of course you are way THINNER. I think one of the greatest creations was those boyfriend cuts and low-rise. The heavens opened up when they arrived on the scene. At my thinnest I will always wear them:) Heck I like skinny jeans too, if they have some room for booty and thigh muscles.

    WTF, what is the big deal with a doctor ordering a freeking blood test to check for it, how dumb. There are places online that you can order the test from. It my doctor 2 years to check for that. I was lucky that it only took 2 years and not decades like some.

I think going gluten free is the way to eat but that is coming from a celiac so I am biased.

Hang in there, soon those pants will just slide on no problem.

Oh...add on comment.... I would suggest to find out the specific blood test that you want done, go in and tell her that you want this test done, you are the "customer", you are paying for it and you are in charge of your health. I just went to my doctor with a whole list of tests that I wanted done and he agree to try and do as many as he could, it was awesome. I think he knows that I am in charge of my health and works with me to figure stuff out. And there is also the possibility that even if the blood test comes back showing no wheat allergy, if you feel better without it, just eat that way.

Another add, my wheat allergy did show up as chronic constipation and bloating. Any doctor who thinks that diarrhea is the only bowel issue with celiac is way behind the times.

    I think only a holistic dr. will test for gluten/wheat sensitivities...most western medicine doctors don't believe in that stuff at all.

Yay for size 10 jeans!!

    I always think my stomach looks the best first thing in the morning before any food...after it's just so puffy.

Hang in there on the going gluten free! emoticon
