Ds Gained 3 Lbs!

Recommended Posts

I took DS to the doctor a couple of weeks ago and he gained 3 lbs since last time he was there (sometime in late Sept or early Oct). He even went up a few percentiles in height and weight. The doctor even said that he was starting to fill out (his legs are a little thicker). I have noticed that his clothes are starting to get small on him.

And DD lost a couple of lbs. She wasn't too skinny like most of the other kids on this board. She is still a little short for her age, but she was starting to get a big belly (she couldn't wear any jeans). A couple of people even commented that she was starting to look chunky (some even in front of her face....I thought that was really rude!). I was telling DS to weight himself (at home) and then she asked if she could weigh herself. She lost a couple of lbs since going to the doctor. I didn't really say anything about it since I don't want her to worry about her weight, but I was secretly a little happy. I have noticed that she hasn't been as addicted to refined carbs since she went gluten free. Just wanted to share with people who understand ;)

That is so great that your DS is putting on some weight!!! It is so wonderful when you see them start to thrive again!! Going gluten free was the best thing that has happened to my family!!! Thanks for sharing the good news!!

I understand your excitement!! We self-diagnosed as this is not something the doctor looks for and my 2 year old has gained 6 lbs and 4 1/2 inches in the last several months! Isn't it great not to be worried about your children all the time?
