  1. Hi, It sounds like you have been through alot and I wish you the best. It seems to me that with your history of anorexia you should look at getting some expert assistance in terms of your diet and ensuring you stay on track. My GI set me up in a meeting with a nutritionist which was very helpful...
  2. Well, my doctor is sure it was just a viral thing I had after all and not an allergic reaction so no allergy testing for me. It actually makes more sense it is viral based on all the flu like symptoms and the time it took to come and go. I am back into my regular routine, taught 2 spin classes...

    Me And The Farm

    A guard donkey? I love it!! It is big, like a mule size, or just a cute little donkey?
  4. Okay, so I don't have pityriasis rosea and it wasn't a virus fluey thing that interfered with my marathon. Apparently I am experiencing a full body allergic reaction to something....oh fun. I was covered in big blotchy spots as of end of day yesterday and figured it was the pr I was diagnosed...
  5. So my first marathon in a year was this weekend...in short, it was a race gone bad. A few days before I started feeling vaguely fluish, but kept pushing the thought aside. If I don't think it, it can't happen, right? So after a couple of days of sore eyes, sore skin, and drenching night sweats...
  6. I am 1 1/2 weeks away from my first gluten free marathon. I really don't think food wise it will be any different than the others I have done. I use Cliff Bloks and Power Gels as food during the run...I had found previously I could tolerate Power Bars as well, but I think they have oat flour.....

    Feelin' Groovy

    I'm so jealous of you two!!! I will never be able to convince my husband to move to an acreage...he is a city boy at heart. I grew up on an acreage with our own garden, our own cattle (so I grew up on grass fed beef) and everything was organic...didn't realize how lucky I was...
  8. Okay, so I think I now have an understanding of my results.... I am HLA DQ 1,1 (5,6), which means I am a double DQ1 with subtypes 5 & 6. According to Enterolabs (who I did not test through as I got genotype testing done for free here in Canada) I am positive for genes that predispose to...
  9. So now I have more questions (you would think I could just let it go at this point!!). I have been digging around for more info on what DQ5 and DQ6 actually mean. It looks like they are a subtype of DQ1, so am I actually DQ1 (subtype 5,6) which would make me a double DQ1? This is so confusing...
  10. I got a call from the GI the other day indicating that I had not tested positive for either gene that would predispose me to Celiac disease...I requested a copy of the results be mailed to me and I am so glad that I did...and they arrived so quickly. Turns out I don't have the HLA DQB1 08 or...
  11. Yes, It is surprising the things you have to give up...check the labels on the soup stock you buy as well...you'll be amazed at how many contain wheat. The organic Imagine brand seems to be gluten free and you can also buy bullion cubes that are gluten free. I do like to cook and bake, both...
  12. I am through the withdrawal and am feeling great!! I am experimenting with a few different bread mixes out there. The Bob's Red Mill Whole Grain one is very good if you like the taste of rye bread. I also like the Kinnikinik sunflower flax seed bread. That one is not a yeast bread, it is a little...
  13. I will have to mark the day on my calendar!! That is a great idea and I can celebrate it yearly with a gluten free anniversary cake of some kind! I do have a bread machine, which works well with the Celimix bread mix. I have also used Kinnikinik bread mixes which aren't yeast based...
