  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I am obese too. I have been overweight since I was in Jr high. Sadly, I havn't lost any weight since going gluten-free. But everyones body is different. You may be lucky and lose weight, but you may not.

Here are some tips I learned: Make your own bread. I invested in a good Kitchen aid mixer for bread and pizza dough. Buy some of Bette Hagman...
  8. Well, I am not sure of when I really started getting sick. I believe it was shortly afte my 2nd dd was born 6 yrs ago. I went to my OB for my yearly check up and I told him I seemed to have lots of diarrhea. So he referred me to a GI. He ran blood tests and decided to do a colonoscopy. He found pre...
