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.

Welcome Reeney. I am a gluten free lady always on the lookout to increase my fiber levels and agree with you that it can be frustrating to buy gluten free food that is high in calories and low in fiber. Love to cook my own food though and add ground flax and gluten free oats to keep my levels up. Hope you enjoy sparking and being part of the gluten free world here. Smiles Barb

Hi! So glad you found out your allergy to wheat. When I first started eating gluten free I just eliminated wheat, as I did not realize how many products contained gluten. I felt great for the first 6 months and then all of my symptoms began to return. I soon realized all of the items that I was eating that still contained gluten and had to stop eating those also. I dealt with the esophogial ulcers also.

Hopefully you can find a type of exercise that you enjoy. I know that for me, if it is not an activity that I enjoy, I will not do it. I also exercise in the morning, that way it is over with. I am kidding myself to think that I will have time/ energy to work out when I get home from work after having to cook for my family and deal with homework, sports, etc!

If you need anything or just extra support, let me know, I am more than happy to help anyway I can or just be a listening ear! We are all on the same path to health :)

Hello, all! Glad to have found you, it's a rare thing to be a part of a group this large, sharing the same challenges.
I am also self-diagnosed, after being seen at multiple hospitals (including the illustrious Mayo Clinic) and finally a chiropractor who suggested eliminating wheat. My symptoms were vomiting, (to the point of vomiting bile) severe chest / esophageal pain and spasms. I lost over 30lbs in one month, as I vomited everything I ate. I had multiple ulcers in my esophagus due to the acid. I went exclusively GF and found that within 24 hours, there was improvement. I am able to 'cheat' on occasion and do not face the same threat of allergic reaction(s) as true celiacs do. I am able to eat many things that are not part of a GF diet, it seems my allergy is to wheat alone. I try to listen to my body and pay attention to the signals it is sending.
During my husband's 22-month deployment, I got very fit and lost weight I had been carrying since giving birth to four children. Since his return four years ago, it has crept back on. I am facing 40 in February and don't want to be embarrassed by those photos. Fit and trim is my goal -- at whatever weight that may be!
I am easily frustrated by the 'fad' diets, as they tend to promote whole grains. (most of which are out of the equation) I am also frustrated that so many of the GF products are high in fat and calories with very little nutritional value. I am not a big eater, and that is probably why my metabolism is that of a 'speed bump'! I've been working hard on fixer-upper projects in this old house and get out to work in the garden daily. Exercise = BLAH in my book! I'd rather be 'doing' something. Hope to hear back from y'all and thanks for being here for just another GF gal!
