I'm not sure what I want yet....I'll think about it. I'm going to have to have pizza while I'm home along with popcorn, and some other things that I forgot about at this moment. You should also be sure to have plenty of eggs, sugar, vanilla, and brownie mix. I'm going to do a lot of baking :D I'll also take a lot of it with me too :rolleyes:

OMG, that's where I"m goign tonight too! :lol::P:lol::P:lol:

:lol: Yes, just look at them, taking over our 40-something place to tread on people :lol::lol::lol:

yes but it's just like old times :)

You going to a Suzanne's or just Wright?

Okay, I can't eat popcorn because of my braces, pizza because of the casein, and anything baked because of the sugar (my adrenals) ... so you are clearly thinking only of yourself with this food, correct?

BTW, you look about 25 in that picture! Who is the other person?

Patti - do you know if he's gone for good? I tried to PM him and he either has it disabled or his inbox is full. I'm so out of it (I don't like drama, politics or game-playing, so I tend to stay out of threads that deal with that stuff) that I don't even know what happened. Why did he leave? He's such an important part of our board.

Liz and everybody--you can always use email to reach him, if the mailbox is full :)

Well it's hard to consider your diet since you've changed it recentlly....I had forgotten about your sugar thing. Oooooh!!! An omlet and some good meat would be awesome too!!!!! :P

Yeah I'm back...but only for as long as I have the time...it's hard to keep up with this. :(

Why do I look 20? Is that a good thing? Bad isn't it? That's my friend Andrea :)

I don't remember all the cutoff dates for these. Hubby is 12-13 (Sag or Cap?), T is 12-22, M is 9-23 and S is 11-21.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Here it is ... my new avatar is me with my new braces. Not a very good pic, it was taken on a cell phone. I'll try to get a better one tomorrow.
