Can we back up one second? I have to give you a great big hug. 15 pounds is NOT huge. It may feel like it when you look in the mirror, but no way are you huge if you are 15 pounds over the weight you'd like to be!

I'm sorry your family's not supportive here, because I know that would be a lot of help. But I think it's so helpful that you know your sister has celiac disease and that it may be what's bothering you as well.

Were you able to look at some of the celiac disease links I gave you, and are you trying a celiac inspired diet yet? If so, how is it going?

What do you mean by "huge"? How many pounds do you feel like you need to lose?

Here is some information that might help. The Mayo Clinic has a section on celiac disease; there are blue links down the left side of the page that will take you to "Treatments and Drugs" and "Lifestyle and Home Remedies" that may help:


The Celiac Disease Foundation has a lot of information about managing celiac disease. Just go here, and you can even download a PDF titled "Quick Start Diet Guide for Celiac Disease":


Since your sister has celiac disease, is she helping you with your diet?

Hi, LoriLexi,

Have you recently been diagnosed with celiac disease? Did you have blood tests, or a small intestine biopsy? And were you given a celiac diet from a doctor?

Or are you just wondering if you might have it?

There's no way to tell you for sure when you'll get your waistline back, because it depends on how many pounds you have to lose, how much you exercise, how tall you are, how old you are and how easily you adapt to the celiac diet. Can you tell us a little more?
