Welcome. I know it is hard and frustrating in the beginning. I have been gf since 2009 and feel so much better. I have been sick enough times but only due to accidentally ingesting gluten. You will find this group will be very helpful to you They are awesome and a great support group too. Hang in there as it will get better. I know it is not easy being gf and the rest of the family is not; however my DH is not gf and if I make a new dish or bake something it is always gluten-free.

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.

Hi everyone! I was diagnosed with Celiacs in 2009. I have gotten pretty adjusted - even went to Rome! I gained weight when I first started trying all the "gluten free" products because of all the sugar and fat but I am learning. I found an ap for my phone for gluten free called Find Me Gluten Free and it is pretty good and free! I find it frustrating sometimes between having to find food as well as lose weight because not only do I have Celiacs but also am on synthroid and am a Type 1 diabetic. Spark is great tho because I can adjust all the meals...

This is a great place to be! One thing I have had to do is say goodbye to most convenience foods, not just because of the gluten but because they are really not healthy usually. It is better though to find some GF options in your area and keep a list with you for times when you are stressed and hungry! I usually do salad bar at the grocery store, but there are some restaurants that do GF menus. If you have Uno's, Red Robin, PF Changs, Biaggis, 5 Guys, or Outback they all have GF menus. There are more but that is what I could think of. Burger King and Wendy's have a list as well, although that is my last resort.
Hello - I have been diagnosed with a Gluten Intolerance several months ago. I did really well for about 30 days and ended up going to an inpatient facility that focused on Gluten Free lifestyle. This facility was dedicated to weight loss and I came home with energy and an awesome mind set to get started again. But that was in March and here it is June and I am struggling again. My family does not have to eat the way I do and I find the convienence factor taking over my health. I feel awful and have been sick more then I want and need to get myself back on track. A friend of mine found this website and this forum and introduced me and so thankful she did. I am excited to see the # of followers and hope this means a brand new start for me.
