In Topic: Weight Gain After Diagnosis

22 June 2007 - 07:10 AM

I too was diagnosed last summer and now weigh 20 lbs more than I had. I lost 40 lbs
after hip surgery, that is when the Celiac kicked in, then gained back the 40 + another 20.

You say you want to go back to "normal", but it wasn't normal. That was why you
were losing weight. I too feel like my body grabs every single calorie it take in and
long for the "good old days". I eat better & excersize more than ever, walking about
4 miles 5-6 days a week, which got me out of my osteoperosis.

It is a lot to handle, but your not alone. The support group out here in the western suburbs
of Chicago has a number of people fighting the same battles. There aren't any easy answers.

I'm still so thankful that I didn't have to start this 5-10 years ago, when it had to have been
much more difficult.

Good Luck
