  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I too was diagnosed last summer and now weigh 20 lbs more than I had. I lost 40 lbs after hip surgery, that is when the Celiac kicked in, then gained back the 40 + another 20. You say you want to go back to "normal", but it wasn't normal. That was why you were losing weight. I too feel like my body grabs every single calorie it take in and long for the "good old days". I eat better & excersize more than ever, walking about 4 miles 5-6 days a week, which got me out of my osteoperosis. It is a lot to handle, but your not alone. The support group out here in the western suburbs of Chicago has a number of people fighting the same battles. There aren't any easy answers. I'm still so thankful that I didn't have to start this 5-10 years ago, when it had to have been much more difficult. Good Luck
