Wow :) That is so awesome!

Between bus runs and afterward, she trains for the kickboxing competition. Diagnosed last year with celiac disease, Gilbert hasn’t let it slow her down.
Yep, that's her!

Hey guys I'm back and yep this article is about me... How did you find this? :lol: You guys are amazing :lol:

I had an awesome time up there. Although I couldn't win, I had the best world championships I ever had (so far). I know this year will be hard to top in the future. I will tell you all of this exciting week in a couple of days. I'm still writing on it.... that will be long... phew :rolleyes: . To water your mouth a little bit:

My husband had a big surprise for me. I met my old german trainer. The Team USA had a great reaction to my celiac restrictions and I passed one of the finals with 1/10 of a point :o . So 4th place actually, but you don't get a medal for that. Aluminum medal :lol: . I also had the honor to get elected into the USA women fighter team. I must have made a real good impression, cause now I'm also the Pennsylvanian IAKSA State Representative and I'm already working on looking for good people for the next world championships. I hope I don't have to wear a suit and tie :lol: . Ha... But I already found one gray hair, that's gotta count for something B) ...

But I probably will come with the IAKSA USA Team as either a referee or coach only for the next two years. Due to the fact, that the WKA Association isn't answering my letters :( (maybe they don't like germans) and for the IAKSA World championships I have to be an American (even if I would qualify at a qualifier, I wouldn't be allowed to start for the Team, so why waist all the money in the first place???), the next 2 years I won't even have a chance on a World Championship again (in 2 years I get my American citizenship). But I already start to prepare now for then (maybe even for the Olympics?, so I will be even better :D ). Thanks for your help the last couple of weeks guys. I couldn't have made it without you. THANKS 1000 TIMES!!! You will also get an update on my sports diary.

And yeah, the celiac. I knew from the start, if there would be an article in the newspaper I want to mention the celiac in there. And I have a stubborn head. Oh, Kathy (in one of the pics) is the women in my Team that has celiac, too. I already mentioned her several times in here.

Hugs and Happy Thanksgiving to everybody, Stef

If you want to see it at 4th place, I mean. The thing is, that there is one 1st place, one 2nd place and TWO 3rd places :o . All four of them are in the finals in the form performing classes. I missed this final with 1/10 of a point. So theoretically spoken it's a 4th place, cause there are two 3rd places and no 4th place in the finals. But some people say it's 5th... I don't know :huh: . One thing I know, is, that I improved greatly. Cause 2003 in Ireland I already passed the final with 1/10 of a point :rolleyes: and there weren't nearly as much people than now in Canada. And the skill lewel two years ago was waaay lower than this time, too :P . So I must have improved. :blink:

One thing I know for sure (without being cocky now) is I did a really good job and I worked hard for it :D . And I didn't give my opponents an easy time. They really earned it, too. And I didn't give anything away either. It was the highest skilled kickboxing world championships I ever competed in (or watched, I also was spectator when I wasn't competing). Every competitor there really earned it to yet alone be there. It was awesome... :lol: I'm so glad I did this. Well, I'm at my parents in law at the moment so I have to get going. But as I said, you will get some nice, cool, funny, sad, emberassing whatever stories. There's something for everybody.

Hugs, Stef

Thanks, Laura, this makes me so proud :wub: . First I was afraid of mentioning celiac (just like the "big" celebrities :P ). But then I "jumped over my shadow" and told 'em. Now it's out and actually it wasn't that bad. Actually it gave me a little bit of popularity. Since I'm back from Canada strangers on the street talk to me about this, cause they remember. Isn't that cool? And one of the women I had in my class beginning 2004 remembered me when I went shopping in WalMart (she's working there). She tries to talk to her boss about having me "over" for christmas for a charity thing and giving out pics with autographs. If this should ever happen, I will fight for bringing in glutenfree foods into our WalMart. Because our WalMart in Carlisle doesn't have glutenfree foods.

At the moment I'm planning for our "2 in 1" holiday party December, 10th. "2 in 1" means christmas and world championships celebration in one. The press probably will be there again (I don't know for sure, but they will get my invitation at the beginning of next week) and I'm struggling with the decision at the moment to invite celiacs and make a big thing with glutenfree food :ph34r: . My beloved Kathy won't come, so I would be the only one and without help in this section :( . I can't count on the help of my other students. None of them is celiac. They probably would contaminate the food without knowing. So I don't know what to do at the moment. I'm fussing and planing and can't get anything done... What do you guys think?

    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
    • What you all are going through is normal. It took a long time for celiac to progress to the point where you were diagnosed and it takes time for the antibodies to resolve and for you to return to full health but you will. Eat as many whole foods as you can, stay away from oats and limit or delete dairy until you have healed for a while longer. Some of us will react to even gluten free oats so wait until you have been symptomless to try them out.  Sublingual B12 may help you heal a bit faster and do take a good gluten free vitamin. Be careful of the 'whole foods' vitamins as some will have barley or wheat grass in them. Eventually you will recognize when you get hit by CC, in my case I get a shift like I am falling sideways and an almost instant change in mood for the worse but it took a while to realize that was what was happening.  If you take any prescription meds do make sure that your pharmacist knows you are celiac and that they are checking all meds prescribed. If you haven't already do read the Newbie 101 thread at the top of the Coping section as it will have a lot of good information to keep you safe. Welcome to you all and I hope you heal quickly.
    • Did you take any vitamin D supplements when that tested low? Was anything done to correct the other deficiencies you had?  Do you take a multivitamin now?  I think correcting any vitamin and mineral deficiencies should be the first line of defense.   It's the simplest way of ruling out more sinister conditions.  Vitamin deficiency diseases can be mistaken for other diseases.  For example,  a deficiency in niacin (pellagra) can be mistaken for Celiac Disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Cycling Lady broke vertebra in her neck throwing up.  She had anemia, a result of iron and B12 deficiencies.   I understand how you can just blow off the importance having adequate vitamin and mineral levels.  I did.  My doctor did, too. But when a friend suggested vitamin D deficiency might be causing my severe depression,  I begged my doctor to check my vitamin D level.  He ranted he couldn't make any money prescribing vitamins.  He finally agreed, but only because my insurance would pay for it and he could prescribe synthetic D2.  My level was six.  That's severely deficient.  He didn't bother with checking for other deficiencies.  I broke a leg, osteoporosis due to calcium deficiency.  That's lame.  I developed pellagra.  That's "slightly dead."  Then there was the BeriBeri episode with bouts of tachycardia. That's "almost dead." And from complications of vitamin A deficiency, I'm legally blind.  All within three years.  Yeah, sure, vitamins aren't so important.  Just ignore them, they'll go away.  Please rethink putting nutritional deficiencies on the back burner. Hope this helps. 😸
