I'm fairly new to SparkPeople but just joined this team today. I was diagnosed as being gluten intolerant the first week in January and have been gluten free since then. Also a food test came back showing even more food allergies. Because of this, I've been on a very restricted diet. My doctor told me Thursday to begin adding a few more foods back into my diet. I'll remain gluten free. Eating gluten free has been difficult since I haven't been able to eat tapioca (a food allergy) which is in all gluten free breads, crackers etc. I'm now supposed to try adding foods with tapioca. I thought joining this team might be helpful to me.
As far as my experience with weight, I'm currently at my goal weight. I've battled food since I was a child. At my heaviest I weighed 250 lbs. Over the years I've gained and lost the same pounds over and over...I'm a yo yo-er. Losing weight is difficult but I've never been able to maintain.
I look forward to being a part of this team!
