    Oh ladies Thanks for telling me I look great And I'm a hottie : ) I'm Happy ... thanks I am so happy now I'm actually crying.. I have a lot of self image issues... I look in the mirror I don't see the new lean guy.. I see the old guy... a freckled botchy skin bloated Mess.. Im actually frightened at times I don't even know who I am.. I sometimes have nightmares that I'm bloating... I wake up in a panic..have to check my face and stomach in the mirror.. if I pull skin I get confused and have to remind its only skin and that we all have skin in some water under the skin... Its getting better as the months go by the nightmares have almost stopped .. my body image issues are working themselves out... I've never been called a hottie before or that I look great.... it feels Awsome !... I wish I had discovered I had celiac sooner... I was so tired all the time and gained so much Puffy face weigjt.... my wife looked at me one day After 10ys and said what the hell happened my god You look nothing like the guy I met 10yrs ago.. Then she fooled around 7months ago and we split up... I Cant help but Wonder if things woulda been different had I cut out gluten years ago.... But that's hind sight ... ill find a new woman that loves the new gluten free me

    Wow This is awsome... had no idea id meet ladies on here But I'm thinking my life is so simple yet complex Id almost have to be with a celiac so we could Live happy .. I mean simple.. eating natural non processed foods... Yet complex by having to avoid gluten checking labels and pretty much just cooking all my own food just to avoid any chance of a reaction .. It was a battle at first now just a way of life eating clean and healthy ... my diet is the primal diet No milk dairy wheat .. petty much based on what a person 10,000yrs ago would have eaten has he/she scavanged the earth....
  3. Hello... my name is charlie.... Jan 1st after seperating from the wife after 10 yrs I found myself a bloated fat slug... Being on my own I had a lot of time on my hands.. I went to the fridge completely through out everything ....restocked with fish meat chicken all un processesd raw... oranges apples carrots nuts berries oatmeal eggs..... I had withdraws headaches but carried a backpack with me with fruit and turned to apples and pears or almonds to snack on.. In 4 weeks lost 10lbs.... 3months 20lbs 6months now a total of 35lbs.... my belly down to 31 from a tight 34... my face was a bowling ball now its slim and sculpted.. I cook all my meals.. I carry apples nuts oranges fruits and homemade beef jerky unsalted unprocesses just dehydrated with me for snacks A lot with canned tuna in the car with ricecakes For emergencies.... Its a lot of work but I hope my story and pics will encourage others to cook and carry along their own meals.... the disease can be over come With about a hour a day prep time in the mornings Or night before to cook meats and make salads chop veggies and tupperwear them... Its changed my life for ever.... women in the gym talk to me.... some saw me over the 6 months lose weight ... A lady I saw a few times when I first joined the gym didn't pay attention to me. ..just saw her yesterday morning 5 months later and her jaw dropped She stood staring at me in dis belief She litterally looked like she had shock as if she saw a ufo or something ... I'm working out she circles me over and over... taps me on the shoulder and says omg you stuck with it... she said I see people come and go but you didn't give up.. Wow u look awsome I didn't think it was you... We chatted AND SHE HAS CELIAC ALSO... she is lean and ripped we talked about foods and cooking and I made a friend who understands this Often mis understood disease ... Thanks every one.... This was me all glutened up... Jan 1st This is me 6months later
