#590728 Anybody Out There A Morbidly Obese Celiac?

Posted by ItsaDollThang on 05 February 2010 - 07:35 PM

My health plan sucks so when I asked to be tested for celiac disease they told me "no" pretty much. Said it wasn't covered. My doctor though she just told me to try the diet for 3 months and see what happened. I do have a lot of weight on and it's been pretty bad trying to lose any of it. I have some big issues with the hormones.

I'm 4 weeks in and I've lost 12 LBS. The calorie count is pretty much the same, just no gluten. I called her to tell her and she was pretty surprised. Told me to keep at it and that she'd see me mid-Feb as scheduled.

It's rare for me to lose any weight at all. I've been really struggling to do so for a long time now. Nothing has worked. 4 weeks, no gluten and all of a sudden it's I'm dropping weight like I was working out 24/7 or running marathons or something!

Amazing, I just hope it continues this way. I'd love to be able to fit back into a size 6/8 by this time next year. I haven't seen my "normal" size in almost a decade and a half. I'm just not built to be a size 18 and it's been putting a real strain on my health.

Clearly there is a link between the weight gain and the gluten thing, at least for me. The sudden number drop on my scale says it all.
