Postby missymoowho » Thu Apr 05, 2007 7:26 am

Hi every one.This is my first post.I would like to loose about 28 pounds and i'm finding it really hard.I can't have any wheat in my diet as i have IBS and it makes it worse.Finding things i like to eat and things i can eat is really hard at the moment.I have started today though and i'm following weight watchers.Hopefully i'll start to loose.
P.S how do i get a weight loss ticker.
Thanks :(

Hi and welcome...
Try google -ing the caeliac association, or even wheat free recipes. We had to go wheat free for my son when he was little, and those recipes made a HUGE difference. I don't knwo about England, but in Australia you can get 'Spelt' breads and flours which is a good substitute.

Good luck, it's very doable, and quite honestly dropping wheat out of your diet should actually assist in your weight loss.

Hello Missy Moo and welcome to the forum!
wheat intolerance isn't too bad to work around - I have a uni friend who can't have gluten and dairy which makes life very hard indeed for her. Basically it means you will be making more of your food yourself - no more packaged goodies for you which is handy if you are trying to lose weight anyway!

The suggestion to d google searches is a great one!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

We are planning a holiday over there next year - taking the kids with us - I cannot wait (have never been before). Want to go and see where my dad grew up and catch up with rellies that I have not seen in a long time. Also my best buddie lives just outside of London so would love to catch up with her too.
