Moving Onward and Upward

Happy Thursday to all! (I think right now it's just me.)

I've made it public knowledge now that I'm blogging, so maybe someone will read. If not, that's okay too. This is more for me than anyone else.

I made great progress toward recovery this week.

I asked for help - I asked to see a dietitian.

I always thought that I could do this on my own. Everyone I've talked to who was overweight before going gfree said that they lost weight after they cut out gluten. I haven't lost any significant amount of weight. I've lost maybe two pounds, which is frustrating. As sick as I have been, I still am overweight.

It seems so backwards in so many ways.

We'll see what happens when I'm getting the right amounts of everything.

My brother and his wife announced that they're expecting a baby this weekend. (they're not having the baby this weekend. They just made the announcement this weekend.) It was a terrible blow to me. I suffer from the unexplained infertility that comes from long-term undiagnosed Celiac. All the doctors say I'm fine, but nothing happens. Anyway, it was a fun announcement.

I really am happy for them, it's just difficult to swallow. She's 21. I'll be 27 next month. It just doesn't seem fair on so many levels.

On a happier note, my career is starting to take off and my husband's doing well in school, so those are things I can take joy in.

Here's a fun fact for you - the spell check on my posting feature does not recognize the word "Celiac". It's behind the times!


  1. Hey Girlfriend...I was so glad to see you started a blog...just not so happy as to why. I didn't know you were having all these struggles. Know I love you and I will be reading!

  2. Just ran into your blog! It is nice that you are documenting your journey. I know it will help out others! Hang in there! Change doesn't happen over night!
