When I was first dx with Celiac I was wearing a size 3X (tightly) and weighed over 265 pounds... The weight loss has been slow and steady ever since going gluten-free, but I had kinda hit a plateau and hadn't lost any more weight in a while after losing 65 pounds. Well after about a month of not weighing myself and noticing that my size 16's are getting loose I decided to weigh myself... YIPPEE SKIPPEE JOY OH JOY!!!!! I have lost an additional 10 pounds, bringing my total weight loss to 75 pounds in just a little over 2 years!!!! And I'm finally under that dreaded 200 pound mark!!!!! WOO HOO!!! Doing a happy dance all over the place!!!!

Congratulations nini!!

It is nice to see something positive come from having celiac!!! I know this is a much more healthy way of living and eating but I do still miss pizza <_<

Keep up the good work and enjoy shopping for new clothes.

Wow Nini that's fantastic!! You are truly amazing and deserve so many congratulations :) Losing weight is never easy, and anyone who loses a significant amount (more than 20 pounds, in my book) deserves every bit of bliss they get from being thinner! :)

I'm so happy for you :) :) :)

Thank You Thank You Thank You!!!!! I think this is even more significant to me because as a child and teenager I was always very thin, and it was so upsetting to me when I started putting on weight and couldn't figure out why. I wasn't eating a lot of food and what I did eat was going straight through me. All those Dr.s that said that I just needed to "cut fat" "cut calories" "eat more whole wheat" "eat more fiber" needed to just be shot!!! LOL! With going gluten-free I am also eating more whole unprocessed organic foods, and staying away from a lot of processed stuff. Plus I drink a ton of water every day. It's about all I drink except for my morning coffee and the occassional gluten-free all natural soda from whole foods.

Way to go! One thing I noticed when I lost weight is I would go through plateus where I didn't lose any weight but my body shape would change during that time. Slow and steady is the best way especially when you are really overweight. Keep at it, I've been there. Still have some love handles that have a death grip on my waist but that's better than a big huge gut that was killing me.

    • Not sure if any of you are from the Long Island area, but in Suffolk County there is a pizza place in Port Jefferson called Carnival that has gluten free pizza pies for 10$ (so cheap!) and they are very careful with cross contamination. They wash their hands, do it in a separate area in the kitchen, get the ingredients from a separate container, etc. 
    • I've been on an off keto for a few years now (unrelated to celiacs), and I have found my concentration and alertness is SO much better when I'm eating a ketosis amount of carbs (under 20 net) and a little bit more fat. I'm not sure if you exercise or not, but try some sort of exercise (I like lifting but others feel better doing cardio) and once your body starts going through ketosis, it's a whole new world!
    • Hello! I'm glad you're feeling better. It says 12 weeks, but it can be very little. A few crackers a day or something like that. It's worth it, though, to know for sure and see other things too. Good luck!
    • I agree that it can take years to feel completely healed and then you still might have some less than good days. Being celiac will be a lifelong challenge but you will become a very exceptional cook of gluten free meals.  As for the bloating, have you considered SIBO. Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. The symptoms often mimic IBS and Celiac Disease. I know because I have it all. Research it and see what you think. Just another idea. Stay strong!
    • Tell me about it, when you can not eat meats, and a bunch of other things, it becomes really quite annoying getting the optimal fat/protein ratios. The amount of nuts, seeds, and vegan protein powders I go through is crazy. Diet cost me over $600 a month for a single male at 125-128lbs and 5' 11"   Egg whites is about the only animal product I can eat in large amounts (8-12) with no issues (Yolks bother me). And I only eat them for breakfast mixed with coconut flour, and nuts/seed butters to bring the fats up then use in omelettes, pancakes, waffles, or scramble them. I also normally go light for lunch, salad with jack fruit and vegan cheese or cheese sauce I make, or this week making portabello pizzas/fake bagel bites for lunch with s salad. Dinner I normally just make a huge bowl of vegan icecream with a few scoops of protein powder, and almond butter in it >.>  I just get depressed at the end of hte day and want icecream and not cook over a hot stove/oven.
