For Those Who Feel Like Cheating Or Have Cheated....

Recommended Posts

I don't have the option. I have celiac. But I have had 3 occasions in the past 2 weeks where it was so tempting to cheat. But I didn't because I want to heal.

Every Thursday morning I attend a women's Bible study and I lead a table there. Every week I am faced with 2 round tables full of food. Everything from doughnuts to muffins and I sit with my bottle of Ensure and a Glutino cereal bar.

This afternoon they had a luncheon for us leaders and ordered pizza. The wonderful ladies I serve with know my condition so they brought salad for me and grilled chicken.

It would be so easy to cheat with all this food in front of me every week, but I stay strong. Although i have come home and threw myself a pity party. Cheating is just not an option if you have celiac! If I can do it with the temptation looking at me every single week, you can do it too!

I cheated three times not long after my dx. That was over two years ago.

 

It is extremely difficult. Even more so now if someone brings (or bakes) something gluten-y. I get quite the bellyache over it from the smell.

There are lovely men everywhere! But I just look and don't partake! :0

Oh!!! Sorry! You meant gluten food......

Well...the same principle applies.

I honestly do not know why you are settling for Ensure and a glutino bar, hon. Blechsters!

I'd feel sorry for myself, too if that was all I had to eat. :D

You are almost being a "food martyr"--and I do not know why. Time to branch out and bake.

 

Seriously, you have to look at your new life as an opportunity to create new goodies.

 

Here's what I would do. I  would bake something and bring it to share. 

 

make G F sourdough bread.

G F Banana bread

G F Muffins

G F Cookies

 

Check King Arthur's G F  recipes  or Pamela's recipes online 

 

Flourless chocolate cake--this one makes all my gluten-eating friends swoon

 

Cheesecake

Lemonies

 

Stop thinking you cannot have yummy things. Trust me, you can.

Yep, bringing some food along sounds like a good idea.  Maybe you need to bring more of it.  Are the other ladies just eating one or two little bites of something?  There's no reason you should limit yourself, especially when you are in the healing process.  Your body needs nutrients to heal and make new tissue.

 

Strangely enough, cheating has come up on the forum before..  :)

 

How bad is cheating?

We have 3 restaurants in our little town that we go to. I've never gotten sick there. We got to know the staff at each one and they prepare my food special. They are family owned so maybe that's why. I'm thankful I can still have date night with my husband and not get sick! And for my hamburger fix its in n out protein style ;-)
