Put cauliflower, squash and potatoes in chicken broth, mashed the veggies down like mashed potatoes and served it with a vegetable based gluten-free gravy. It actually turned out pretty good, and loaded with nutrients!

That sounds really good. I had a nice big bowl of veggie chicken soup last night. I also had some pork tenderloin.

I took the kids to the park yeaterday(walked/jogged) and did my normal workout that my trainer does with me. I'm sore today.

Been going through a lot of emotional crap lately- today I turn 30 and I don't know if its related or not.....and chocolate in the house doesn't help

Eating pretty crappy. Woke up at 1 this morning, fell back asleep at6, then up at 6:30. If you count crying and breastfeeding, thoes are the only calories I've burned.

Yesterday I made homemade cheeze it's. I used earth balance and there is 100 cal per tablespoon. I used 3 tblsp in it, and ate the whole thing on top of chocolate. I'm going to have to cut dairy I think. Don't know if it's emotional stress or the dairy but my stomach is killing me.

Goodness, no fun with the stomach! I had to cut dairy out as well. I can eat aged cheeses but I stay away from butter and milk.

finally got a chance to weigh myself yesterday--247.4-- much as I hate that #(it means I've regained 40 lbs, give or take!! (I'm tall, my goal weight is 182, higest known weight was about 289, lowest weight since starting to loose weight 5 years ago was about 209)--- I'm happy with it b/c honestly, I thought it would be in th 250's, or even 260. Now I just gotta get it going back down, instead of up!

HAven't had much energy lately, but I have been able to do some light exercise 3 days this week. hoping I can go out for a walk this evening.

I need to get my portions in check. I shipped all the Halloween candy out. Something is bothering the baby. I don't know if Its tge cheese I've been eating the chocolate or the 1 egg I ate yesterday.

I worked out (half assed) with my trainer. Dr wants me to check my thyroid. Getting rid of the candy will help, but I had 2 big portions of white rice spagetti for dinner with greasy sauce, then lots of cookies. Going to work on cutting the dairy as well. I need to do something drastic. I'm thinking dairy because it includes my weakness- chocolate. I know dairy is an issue, but it's soo good.

Good on the weigh-in GlutenFreeMama! I am a cheese lover myself. Aged hard cheeses lose their lactose so you might consider them instead of the newer soft cheeses. I eat nothing labeled with lactose. Any milk I drink is eithr rice or almond. You can make it work and feeling better is so much nicer!

I was in Phoenix for a conference last week and came home with a weird stomach bug. I'm now down to 162...

Rachelle, are you eating corn tortillas?

Brown rice most of the time

I am up 2 pounds. I have been eating portions that are to big and not enough exercise. I just got p90x. Now I have to find the motivation.

I didn't lose any weight on the P90x, gained muscle, though

Energy is a tough one, been struggling a bit with it myself with the lack of sunshine.

I did want to share with you ladies a website that helps you tab your calories if anyone is interested. It is free unless you want personal guidence and then there is a monthly fee for a better membership. For me, I find it really shows me what my diet looks like when I have it logged. Then I see how much calories the potato chips and the cookies are and try to make better choices. It calculates your amount of calories from the foods you select, you can type in your own items and their nutrients, it does an auto calc of your total fats, sugar, sodium, carbs, protein, etc. You can set a goal of so much weight loss for a certain amount of time and then it will calc what your daily intake should be to achieve it. The site is www.my-calorie-counter.com

    Report on Gluten Free Foods & Beverages Market (2019) gives complete outlook of ... non-celiac patients with more number of new product introductions in ... Awareness of Celiac Disease and Gluten – Intolerance Consumers 3.1.2 ... View the full article
    Okay, thanks. Re: MTHFR - I don't really know yet... I only started reading about it yesterday and it is pretty overwhelming. But it does seem to be common advice that if you have a close relative with it you should be tested, and I guess having 2 copies of the "C" variant, as my sister has, is the "worst" variety of it.  It came to light for her when she was going through infertility and miscarriages.  They discovered that her homocysteine was high, which led to the MTHFR testing. So that is one thing I know I would then want to proceed to do, if I do have it - get my homocysteine tested. My dad died of early-onset Alzheimer's, and apparently there is a link between high homocysteine as well as the MTHFR mutation and Alzheimer's. It also seems like it would be worth knowing if I have it since it could be the cause of my lower levels of B12. And I guess maybe I would need to start taking methyl-folate? I mean, to answer your question, I am not entirely sure what I will do if I do have it.   Probably read a lot more about it... and take supplements like methyl-folate if I really think I need to.  Check my homocysteine & control that if I need to, hopefully to lower my risk of Alzeheimer's.  It seems like a frustrating area because there appear to be limited official medical websites that really even talk much about it (so far).  I have found one article on the NIH that focuses on the link with high homocysteine. I already eat a very healthy diet.  Whole grains, lots of fruit & veg, mostly organic.  I am a vegetarian except for very rare seafood. I avoid processed food and, above all, foods with added sugar...  To me, sugar is by far the worst culprit in the SAD.  I think RA has been ruled out by my 2 negative Rheumatoid Factor tests (one done several years ago, one just this year at my physical).  Also, the way this started in my elbows, and was really only there for years, is just... weird... and definitely doesn't really fit with arthritis.  And there is no swelling to speak of, just mild pain - sometimes aching, sometimes burning, sometimes sharp...  It may or may not fit with any systemic diagnosis versus a mechanical one, but nowadays I do also have pain in my hands, feet, and knees.  So then I think, well maybe it is/was something systemic, but it was worse in my elbows for some mechanical reason but now has progressed elsewhere.  I thought Crohn's was just digestive?  (Of course, many people think that of celiac.)  So I haven't really investigated that one much. My ANA was retested and is back down to "negative," so I think that pretty much rules out lupus.  I believe fibromyalgia is still on the table. Anyhow....  Your point is nonetheless taken.  I do want to rule out celiac and go from there.  At this point I'd sure love to find out it is something I could control through my diet!
