Thank you everybody for the warm welcome. I cannot go to a completely GF kitchen. I have four peeps and a husband, each with their own set of food allergies. Once again I start being GF on Monday. It is do or die for me know. Now, I am off to figure out how to turn off the meal plans. Talk to you all soon.

Let us know what you need help finding that is gluten free to substitute in your diet and you will get lots of information. The only way to feel better is to go 100% gluten free and you can do it!!

It breaks my heart that you haven't gone completely GF yet. Is there anything you need to make the switch? You're hurting yourself every time you eat gluten. Think of your loved ones and how they'll feel if you die younger than you should have due to cancer or other health issues that could have been prevented by going GF. We help each other a lot here and just ask for whatever you need.

Hi and welcome to this site. I can definitely relate to what you are going through. I have been gluten free since July of 2009 and it was definitely a big eye opener for me. One thing is that I could not go back to gluten as I would get violently ill. I did try a few times and got sick each time. You will get alot of support here. I know I have and that is why I am still here. I also have two sisters, one that has Celiac and the other one her DH has it, so they knew what I was going through and helped me as much as possible. If I would of not gotten sick, I would of gone back to gluten in a heart beat. Once you get pass this point it will be alot better. I am doing much better and would not eat anything with gluten at all. At least not on purpose
It sounds like you have have not gone totally gf in your kitchen. What you can start doing where it will not be that expensive is have rice, potatoes, meat and veggies. Now and then buy a couple of things that are gf and try them a little bit at a time. If you like salads they are good to eat and healthy too.
Please keep posting and let us know how you are doing and if you have any questions at all, please go ahead and ask. I know that I and other members will be here to answer as much as possible and cheer you on. You will feel so much better. You have to realize that your stomach will get worse each time you ingest gluten. Hang in there it will get better and you will also feel alot better too.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I joined SP today. I was diagnosed with celiac in 2009 and have been struggling ever since. I have not been able to maintain the diet for longer than a week. By Thursday I am eaten gluten and come the weekend, I am so exhausted, achey feeling that I spend the weekend sleeping. I need to get off this roller coaster ride. I have gained almost 40 lbs since being diagnosed with this yoyoing that I am now 1% obsese.
So, that is me. I looked forward to joining this community . One last thing, is there a way to remove all the GF food from the nutrition tracker?
