Lots of great tips. I don't have any skin problems. It's funny you said that because all my boys have exzema. I have been leaning more towards organic and all natural for them. I try to buy them gluten free things also. They seem to do better too. Specially my older son with ADD. I did have my thyroid check it was good. So so far I just need to try and stay away from wheat. I'm wondering about this bone density. I am very how should I say. If some one were to poke my leg it actully hurts a little and I bruise very easily. Maybe a totally diffrent thing. Lack of vit c and D now I take everyday. I'll have to ask about the celiac next time I go to the docters.

I'm glad you said that. Don't over due it. I think I was. I am now doing a 15 min strength workout every other day. I walk 15-30 min a day. I have been feeling much better the past 2 days.

Kathy - I was just introduced to a gluten free pizza crust at my local health food store. It is Chebe pizza crust made in Spirit Lake, Iowa info@chebe.com or www.chebe.com I haven't tried it yet but she said that other customers really liked it. I am excited to try to make wraps from it.

I agree with Nancy. You certainly can get more in on some days. I counted the 80 squats I did when recycling the other day. Exercise doesn't always have to be a program, though that can be helpful as well.
As far as weight loss, if you were losing weight, has the doctor done the blood test for celiac? My dear friend has so little bone density that at 50 she was like a 90 year old. The gluten had stripped all the calcium from her bones. That's one of the problems they're finding with this nasty, overlooked disease.
For most, it's bloating, IBS, and exzema. But, it can be really weird things. For me, I must refrain from wheat, and pretty much stay totally GF. But I can eat some spelt and some brands of oats which are not labeled GF. I don't have the disease, but a true intolerance to wheat. But I was having mouth ulcers and other skin problems. Also, my pain level was massive. I've been essentially GF for over 9 months and the pain level is way down.
I couldn't do 80 squats a year ago! Another thing to check is your thyroid. Many with celiac or wheat problems have a thyroid problem For me, that normalized since fixing the problem.
This may be old hat to you, but just some of the things I've learned on my journey. I mention the bone density thing because it might make a difference in what kind of workouts you do.
Good luck! It gets easier and easier. I won't pretend that I don't miss a good fresh crusty bread, but I don't have the yearning for it.

emoticon JIFFY4ME,

Glad you joined us. The support is here and a great bunch of people also. Kathy already asked the questions I would of.

It is hard to say what is causing your weight loss. I went down to 89 pounds before finally being diagnosed with celiac disease. Make sure you follow-through with your doctor and share often with us.

Keep it simple to get started, don't overwhelm yourself. I visited your spark page and saw one of your goals was to exercise 30 minutes a day 7 days a week. If you can that's great, if this is asking a lot of yourself - break it down smaller like 10 minutes a day fopr 5 out of 7 days. Slow and steady makes for long lasting change.

Look forward to hearing more from you.

Nancy

Welcome to the team. You might want to stay away from all gluten for a while and then check to see if it is just wheat that is bothering you.

Hi there. Are you supposed to stay away from just wheat as some of us do, or is it gluten? It really does get easier, and a side affect is that you really read labels so you get to know what has junk in it. Some GF foods can be junk too.
It wasn't till I stopped eating wheat that I began losing weight. I'll send you more later.

HI, I was told that I should stay away from wheat products. A little hard to do. I'm making an effort. I think it has a lot to do with my weight loss? MMMmm?
