Thanks for the thyroid advice. I do need to have mine checked again. I am doing the SCD diet, and have lost 30 lbs. (yeah!!!), so the bloat is almost gone, but I still need to see if the thyroid is a factor.
AND, I LOVE spandex!!! Almost all of my pants have spandex. It is SO great!!! I am wearing a pair now! Cropped spandex pants ~ does life get any better??!!??

I have been gluten-free for 7 months and sugar, fruit and dairy free for 4 months. I am still 7 lbs. heavier than before this all started... I eat really well and dance about 4 hours a week... help!
Yeah, I am totally frustrated...as far as I know, I am totally gluten-free but keep gaining weight, even with exercise. My stomach is so distended all the time. It has gotten much worse the past year. I can't wait to get my clothes off some days just to feel comfortable!

I was very skinny thru my late teens/early twenties and then just started packing on the pounds (60lbs in 10 yrs). I was diagnosed with both of the issues within a few months of each other about two years ago. I did lose a little of the weight initially just by going on the gluten free diet and taking thryroid replacement therapy. That all stopped though when I discovered the very fatty/sugary delicious gluten free treats. My down fall was "Bob's Red Mill - Gluten Free Brownies" (Giradelli Cocoa & Cream Cheese).. They are heavenly . All the weight I initially lost came back, plus a few pounds .
Thankfully, I now have resorted to freezing the left overs. However, I am still struggling with my weight. Add to that the 5-10 lbs I gain when I am glutened and it was pretty depressing. However, I seem to have stumbled on something that seems to be working great... yes it is another "life style" change. I've lost 20lbs so far... Just 40 more to go . I based my "life style" change on info from a personal trainer/dietitian and principle concepts from the book "Body for Life for Women" . I eat 5-6 meals a day (3 meals and 2-3 snacks every 2-3 hrs, nothing after 8PM), Strict portion control (you don't need as much since you are eating more often). One day a week I do whatever I want, but the rest of the week I avoid - breads (easy), white rice & refined sugar. I eat whatever low fat protiens, low starch fruits & veggies I want. Plus, I'm taking my vitamins daily, lots of water and exercise 2 - 5 times a week. I shoot for 5 days a week, but sometimes I can only get it in 2 times a week. I feel better than I have in years... Just as long as I avoid the gluten.
Hope this helps.

I'll begin exercising when I get the OK from the doctor - I've also been diagnosed with ITP and my (un) professional medical opinion is that it flares up when I've been glutened; thus I have a huge bruise on my arm, but no pain. Just a little leery of working out until this is all resolved.
