Feeling Fantastic

8 posts in this topic

so sorry it has been a while since i have been here

i have been feeling fantastic these past few weeks

i have never looked so good either

i have droped 67 lbs and im now at my body weight for my hight 135

now i went through hell to get here

but it all changed

when i cut out all grains and cereal family foods along

basically i eat grain free lactose free nightshade free soy free

for morning i drink one glass of green smoothie and take one with me

2 big leaves kale 2 leaves romaine lettuce chia seeds about 2 pinches

pear and apple sauce and blend

yesterday i put mango in place of the pear

then i take something for lunch today it was qunioa flour almond flour herbmare chives onion flakes mixed that with chunked up boneless chicken breasts and baked and then made sweet potato fryes oh yummm hubby loved them

the other day i did a grain free pancake recpie useing almond flour eggs soda coconut sugar in a muffin tin just pour enough to coat the bottom then drop in supposed to be sauage did not have any so i put cooked chicken and baccon on top then poured rest of the pancake mixture on top works great if you do your batter in a blender then baked at 350 for 20 min it was great to take to work

then i got this great recpie im in love with grain free carob muffins omg to die for they taste like a cross between chcolate cake and brownie

i use coconut oil all the time for everything

my sweetners are coconut sugar and honey and sometimes a bit of agave if i run out but only use it if recpie calls for a couple of tbs if it goes into cups i use honey

now mind you if i try and say oh well a bit of this or that wont hurt it does so i am super strict with what i eat

i process my own coconut flour and milk open them up with a cork screw works wonders the pull down kind and then take it to a piece of cement like the basement stair and it cracks open nicely

im so happy i finally figured out what i can and can not eat

i also have been doing oil pulling i think that helps alot too

i highly recomend oil pulling

now that the brain fog is gone i can now go and get my licence and i am now learning a new job as an aprentance to a upholstery shop working monday - friday 9-5 its wonderful i love it so much and learning alot

That's awesome! And I love your idea about the pancake batter in a muffin tin with sausage (or whatever). I'm so going to try it! Another one I saw, but haven't tried yet; from a show called 'Sara's weeknight meals' is to line a muffin tin with a slice of ham, drop in an egg and put on some grated cheese and bake until the egg is set. I don't remember how long she baked it, and maybe using scrambled egg would be better so it's not really over cooked in order to cook the yolk. But it's another one I'm going to try, to cut down on carbs and have something made ahead that I can just warm up for lunch or breakfast.

You did it!! yaaaay!

I love these stories.

So here is mine..

I'm a single mum to a loving a tender 9y/o. Been overweight most of my 39 years. Today I am 65 kg (143pounds for our US readers). My dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) is still head to toe but milder and mostly healing.

I started getting the 'look' from men about 2-3 months ago. Now I am seeing a very gentlemanly man who describes my DH as being so strange given 'how beautiful the inside is'. In hindsight I think gluten has given me so much grief in so many ways that I can't now fathom that life can be good and happy. It makes my head spin. Can people be this content?

Yes, we can! :)

and good for you, Diana--enjoy your steady progress towards good health!

I'm am like you, happy to be healing, although my progress is very slow. I have stopped mourning what was lost to this disease and focus on what lies before me.

FWIW, from all I have learned from people with severe DH, it does die down in time. I know how maddening it is. Hang in there, hon!

Best to you, IH

    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
