CMw - 'Imagination is more important than knowledge'.

This is my youngest - brilliantly talented writer and artist - a born storyteller...he often doubted his intellligence because of his discalculia - finally got him to understand everyone has strengths and weakness - he'll be a great author one day - until then he will be found teaching middleschoolers with compassion because he understands struggling with traditional education for those with learning challenges.

Oops - proud mama off to wake the teen in question :)

This just in - say cheese! In the midst of my pity party last night I ate a piece of swiss cheese - granted not a great way to trial and about three months earlier than the plan - yet happy gut and mostly happy bod this morning. Might have to try another piece sometime soon when not having a fit.

Hope you are feeling better very soon!

That's still not doing what you want, hon. Try this, Colleen.

Then, choose the one you want and right click on it , then left click on "copy image". (I really had to think about that to explain it because even though I do it quickly now, it took me some time to learn--- and I hope it made sense)

I know. These pork shanks were calling to me - I never see them. So, when I did, they jumped right into my grocery cart! It was astonishing to see. And then the buttertarts - well, I'm going to housesit in the country for a week so thought I'd make my darling sweetheart something to remember me by.

And Day 1 starts tomorrow. I absolutely MUST lost these extra 30 lb of adipose tissue - I'm thinkin' it may help my back situation out, too. I'm still going to pull out all the stops with cooking but will make far better choices with serving sizes and eat smarter. One can "diet" and still cook fantastilicious food! ;)

You still have some left???? Shroom, you are a woman of exceptional willpower.Kudos!

No, no. Even with my willpower it would not last that long with "the great refrigerator raider" in the house. Made some more :D

Roast Baby Purple and Yellow Carrots with Miso Glaze

You are so right about the quinoa flakes. I had high hopes for them until they bit me back :ph34r:

And you say you live in the middle of nowhere at 30 below and somehow you come up with baby purple and yellow carrots :blink: I can remember mid-summer in Austin, Mn. (maybe it's better now) but in the whole produce section it was hard to find something that did not belong in the garbage :rolleyes:

That about sums up Upstate New York in winter. <_< A girl can only eat so many root veggies and squashes.

Cannot wait to get to Florida in a few weeks where can walk to the most amazing

produce market every morning and get the freshest veggies and fruits, then over to the fish market

for the fresh catch of the day (or just go catch one myself ) .

"Adipose tissue" makes it sound so much better than the "f--." word.

Yes, any weight we can take off the bones and joints is beneficial.

You know I'll cheer you on!!. I've got the same amount to lose ;)

Smart girl! We bought them at a farmer's market when in the city over the weekend. They had been kept absolutely perfect in soil and sand in a cellar. They are so pretty on the plate!

    • Good advice Ennis!  I would add baking and freezing some gluten-free cupcakes to have on hand, so that she is never left out.  Be sure to read our Newbie 101 tips under the coping section of the forum.  Cross contamination is a big issue,  If the house is not gluten free, make sure everyone is in board with kitchen procedures.   Hopefully, your GI talked about the fact that this AI issue is genetic.   Get tested (and your TD1 child).  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  About 10% of TD1's develop celiac disease and vice versa.  Get tested even if you do not display any symptoms.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/
    • What does weak mean?  Like you squat down and and you can not get back up?  Or are you fatigued?  When you said blood panel, was your thyroid tested?  Antibodies for thyroid should be checked if you have celiac.  So many of us have thyroid issues.  
    • We are not doctors, but based on the results you provided, you tested negative on the celiac screening test.  You could ask for the entire celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  The other IgA that was high?  It normally is given as a control test for the TTG IgA test (meaning if the celiac test results are valid).  In your case, the TTG IgA test works.  Outside of celiac disease, you might have some infection.  Discuss this with your doctor as he has access to your entire medical file.  I would not worry about it though over the weekend!  
    • See: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/ Take a copy of that with you or mail it to the doc. How many endoscopic biopsies did they take? Those with dh tend to have patchier damage than "normal" celiacs.
    • Ironictruth, I think that is a very insightful thought. since different antibodies present for different body systems all the ways gluten affects the body is still not well understood. Here is a case of presumably someone who had the gut damage of a celiac but also had neurological damage. http://www.nature.com/nrneurol/journal/v3/n10/full/ncpneuro0631.html entitled "A case of celiac disease mimicking amyotrophic lateral sclerosis" so it has happened in the literal but since this is not well understood people don't make the connection today. I would also point you to this hindawi article on the "Lesson's learned from Pellagra" but I am afraid we haven' learn't yet. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ notice specially the 2.1 section clinical feature of pellagra and all the neurological symptom's once associated with a Pellagra patient. quoting "The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." which tells me doctor's don't recognize pellagra today when they see it because they haven't seen it in 75+ years. ***this is not medical advice but read the hindawi journal on lesson's learned and I think you will see yourself in their many descriptions of all the way Pellagra presents itself to doctor's and patients still suffering today and you can see why it (like celiac) is hard to pin down today because it presents in so many ways it can be soo overwhelming and since vitamins are not a focus anymore today (especially b-vitamins) that today I believe we are doomed to repeat history's lessons unless the current generation learns again all the ways pellagra presents itself today. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy by the grace of God,
