I'm Back!:)

Well, I guess I haven't been on since around last Fall or sometime around there. Either way, it's been a while! I just finished my Sophomore year of college with a 4.0 and am finally back home for the summer! Some of you may have heard about us on the news recently actually... we had quite a lot of rain a few weeks ago that basically destroyed half the town. My house is okay though! The roads...

I Need To Vent.

I think it's really sad, and I'm sure a lot of you would agree, that I am so elated to go back to college because I know people understand my needs there. This summer has been such a struggle being at home because my family just doesn't get it. I'm not sure they ever will. After being relatively gluten-free for over a year now I realize how much I was taking for granted when it comes to food...

Birthdays Are A Pain

So my brother turns 8 this month and I was pretty excited. Until I realized I'd be expected to bake his cake like I always have. It's not really a problem, but it's just depressing. Obviously mom doesn't want it to be gluten free because she thinks people will notice. No offense to my mother but I have mastered the gluten free baking technique. They wouldn't know. Why do I know this? Because my...

I Just Feel So Successful Right Now!:)

So I am back from my vacation and I feel great! I feel so good that I've finally realized that all the food I wish I could have, but can't, really isn't worth it at all. I know everyone on here has been telling me this, but as a newbie it was very hard to come to terms with. This site has done a ton of good for me:) I stayed away from gluten entirely, ate my fruits and veggies, and showed my...

Feeling Better:)

Through my experience of totally messing my digestive system up this past weekend I have learned my lesson about messing around with gluten. I knew things were getting worse and that I was becoming more sensitive, but I think I just really didn't want to believe it. I've been going through this phase where I just can't stop thinking about how unfair all of this is and how I just want to be normal...

On The Right Track!

This summer my goal has been to eat healthy, exercise, and lose weight! Weight was never really an issue for me until this year when I gained 20 pounds in 3 months. Which is insane and makes me feel totally horrible about myself. As someone who also struggles somewhat with anorexic tendencies, gaining that much weight was truly terrifying.   The first half of the summer didn't go as planned ...

I Cheated

Tonight my mom decided to go to Church's and bring home a bucket full of fried chicken, mac-n-cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy, and biscuits. Needless to say I totally fell of the wagon and now I'm paying for it not even 2 hours later. However, that mac-n-cheese was amazing after not having it in over a year.   So now I'm just lying here researching magic ways online to ease my symptoms ...

Being The Only One: The Lonely Life Of A Celiac

When I was younger it seemed like I always felt bad. Like most "normal" little kids, I enjoyed the multitude of gluten-filled foods that the world had to offer me. I was a hard-core lover of macaroni and cheese, peanut-butter brownies, and fried chicken. The only problem was that my stomach was always kind of off, but this was my norm so I never thought much of it. Apparently neither did my...
