Hey Chrissy,

I have always had a sweet tooth too! I cant do much with the "sweet suggestions" unless you can do apples, dried cranberries, and raisins - if so, I have a fantastic recipe for something thats healthy but sweet. In terms of losing weight - I've had a lot of success on the Primal diet. Its a no carb, high protein//veggie/healthy fats diet and its really worked for me. There's a website you can go on to get some recipes - marksdailyapple.com. Once you get over the hump of not having carbs you dont crave the sweet stuff as much anymore - and for someone like me to say that, thats a lot!!!! You drop weight and build muscle fairly quickly, plus you're eating good foods. I started a thread on it in this section a while ago - you may want to refer to it because there were some great suggestions in there for others doing the Primal/Paleo diet. Hope this helps!!

I haven't ever focused on the scale, but on eating what is healthy. This rules out sweets. I have had 4 cookies in 5 years, and those were in the first year. I don't crave sweets any more. I would rather dream about them! Make sure you take in good fats with each meal like olive, coconut, and butter (ghee). These will make you feel full and keep you satisfied. I have a tablespoon with each meal. I also take in 3-5 oz of protein for every meal. All of these are recommendations from my chiropractor and they work very well for me. For snacks I have muffins, (made from almond flour) fruit and nuts, or smoothies. I take hard boiled eggs or nuts with when I go out, so I am not tempted to eat something else. These have saved me many a time when I can't find anything appropriate to eat.

I could live off Sugar!!  Try to eat only 1 sweet treat a day.  If you eat a lot of sugar daily you may go through sugar withdraws for awhile, but eventually you may notice that you are thinking about it less often and even go days without it.  I love Peanut Butter mixed with Honey, Bananas and Peanut Butter, LARA Bars (flavors blueberry muffin and Chocolate chip cookie dough), KIND Bars (flavor peanut butter dark chocolate+protein), & apple wedges dipped in peanut butter.

    • Ok so is this really true?!?! Conventional? Remember, the fecal transplant was first described in the 1950s, but took decades to catch on as a conventional treatment for gut disorders, such as c-dif bacteria, partly because it was seen as crude and somehow objectionable. But it proved to work. Really well. So much so that it's now a fairly conventional treatment.
    • You are super sweet. I'm sorry your extended family isn't great about get togethers and cards. My family is the same. Once my parents died I don't have anyone who really cares about me except for my husband and kids. My parents started getting really weird about stuff as they got older, and my sisters are way older than me and we didn't grow up together, so we aren't close at all. In fact one sister hates me. They didn't even come to our parents funerals. Families pretty much suck so you gotta appreciate whatever you can put together for a support system. I come here every day looking for a smile or laugh, an encouraging word, or an opportunity to give advice. You guys are definitely part of my extended family   for what it's worth I would be up for secret santa.
    • Wow everyone my memory lane stuff just keeps popping up on this forum!!!! Thanks for sharing the post op and Audrey the pic. I had what looked like this on my inner left ankle in my late 20's!  It never got diagnosed at the time. I was seeing Dr's at time early pregnancy and then missed miscarriage.  dr's I had at the time I asked didn't know what it was. Period of time I had some of the worst headaches of my life etc. I didn't know if I had been bitten by a spider (brown recluse not in my area though) , the miscarriage, or picked up something from the hospital during my follow up miscarriage stuff-stirrup /ankle. I don't have a pic of it to share. Dr's didn't know, my mom a nurse didn't know , that left my husband who is a bit more holistic based and helped me on healing it  at home. I am really shocked to see see posts and all too often say wow! That's my .... from whatever decade  I'm newly recognized/diagnosed too so this was 15 years ago! wow if any one has any active pg I wish you comfort and swift healing . Been there but didn't have the puzzle piece until you gave it to me now. so many puzzle pieces....finally .....start making an image since I joined this forum.    
    • I can guarantee you that once you get your weight back up to normal, your period will come back.  You sound really malnourished and if your weight gets too low, your periods will stop.  Don't panic.......I was down to about 92-94 pounds at diagnosis so you will be able to heal if you do the diet correctly and don't cheat. Once you start to feel better and your other problems are under control , you will find it easy to stick to the diet. Nothing beats health!  Good luck to you!
    • As the other's have stated, you most certainly can go on to have additional AI diseases whether or not you are Celiac or NCGS.  Many AI diseases can be figured out without mainstream testing, as you know from your severe symptoms of Sjogren's.  I also have Sjogren's and knew that I did without any doubt because of the severity of my symptoms.  I was later tested with a new PCP and yes, they confirmed what I already knew.  Have you had the blood work for Sjogren's?  Not that it matters because you already know. As Sjogren's really has no treatment other than treating the symptoms, having a confirmed diagnosis doesn't always matter.  Just see the doctors you need to see for the specific problems you have stemming from it and that's all you can really do.  So far, it has worked for me.
