#550135 Anybody Out There A Morbidly Obese Celiac?

Posted by on 26 July 2009 - 10:43 AM

Don't give up! I'm so tickled and thankful I don't know what to do. Woke up this mornig and weighed, I'm within 8 tenths of a pound of being UNDER 200!!!!! Whoooo HOOOOO!! I started at 242, then went on strict low carb diet, no bread, pasta etc (before being diagnosed and clueless as to why I felt so much better) and lost 70+ pounds. I then went back off the diet due to so much going on in my life...taking care of my mom, issues with x etc..needing fast food that I didn't have to think about (or that was my excuse, but still clueless as to why I started feeling so horrible again). I gained back to 221, so this makes over 20 pounds lost since June 2nd when I went gluten-free/soy free..dairy free a week later.

I thank the Lord that I finally have a diagnosis and praying to see these pounds go for good.

I have to really watch what I eat, the "no dairy" is hard, I truly believe that I am some kind of dairy addict. I went off that wagon last week and had a gluten free pizza and coldstone icecream....bloated 7 pound in less than a day. Its taken a few days for my body to get over that mistake, but its given me more drive to really be careful and stay on my diet. I also ran for a mile straight last night, 3 1/2 miles of jogging and walking total. I feel so much better and can't wait to see how good I feel after 10 more pounds...then another 10... I'm doing this 10 at a time with a little skrinky dink motivational piece I made, every pound I lose I move a number over till all 10 are gone. Its on the fridge and helps me when I think of going for the icecream in the freezer.

again, don't give up!

I gained weight before being diagnosed, alot of it! I tried and tried to lose these past few months and didn't budge. Since going off gluten June 2 I've lost 18 pounds...this past week I'm off dairy, soy, and just recently realised that cottonseed oil might be making me bloat again, so thats out too. I record my food intake on sparkpeople (well this week I haven't recorded due to sickness, but if you go to my sparkpage you can see past food journals) The things that help me are to eat a decent breakfast, try to keep small meals throughout the day with a early supper around 3-4... and then light foods the rest of the day. Apples and peaches are great for me when I don't know what to eat. Also sleep is paramount to losing weight, so make sure you aren't skimping on sleep. I drink lots of water too.

Sparkpeople is phenominal, they have a great Celiac sparkteam too. so good I can't believe its still free. www.sparkpeople.com

Keeping you in my prayers, don't give up...even just losing 5 pounds made a little difference to me. I keep track of it 10 pounds at a time by moving little numbers across my fridge. It makes it much less overwhelming than looking at needing to lose a huge amount of weight. Those 10 pounds brackets will add up over time, the most important thing is that I get healthier.

more (((((hugs)))))) my docs ignored me for a long time until I switched to a different one. I was deficient and so sick, each day I'm so thankful that I'm one more day closer to healing.
