Or like me: I'm *baking* things I'd only bake once a year (and sampling) simply because I'm so taken with this new realm of possibilities. It's definitely hurting my nutrition intake! It's fun for me to experiment but not good on lowering body fat!

Welcome! It does get easier. Stay away from a lot of specialty products if you are trying to lose. They can be very high calorie and not much nutrition.

I just found out in mid January.

The GOOD news is you'll start feeling BETTER. The other good news is clean eating (minus a bunch of grains) is the answer: vegetables (mostly, you may find you react to some, like I react to corn as well), fruits, meats, fish, poultry, eggs are all good. I'm sensitive to dairy as well but not everybody is.

You're going to read a BUNCH of info over the next couple of weeks and it'll start sticking :) emoticon

Welcome to the team.

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.

The first while was absolutely overwhelming for me. If it weren't for all the support and information I found online, I never would have been able to make the switch. I was told to try it in the early 90's and failed miserably - mostly because I couldn't figure out what to do. In 2009, I switched. And have been successful. Whenever I have a question, or want to know something, I go online and google. I also have learned to simply contact manufacturers. It has helped so much.

And I can tell you, I started to feel better almost instantly.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

My husband was diagnosed a little over a year ago. I remember all too well how confusing and frustrating the gluten free diet was at first. We eat differently than we did but it is just more emphasis on whole foods which are better for us any way. Having a support group really helps. We have a celiac support group in town and this site is also a great resource.

Good luck!!
