Why I want to get in shape
I recently discovered that I have Celiac disease. For the first time in my life, losing weight is actually working for me. Before now, damage to my stomach and intestine from the disease kept me in a permanent "starvation mode". Never getting all the nutrients it needed, my body responded by shutting down my metabolism, lowering my body temperature, and turning every excess calorie it was able to digest into fat.
I feel like I've been given a chance to take control of my body once-and-for all.
Feel free to add me!

Update 7/12/11: I am getting to the point where I have too many friends to keep track of everyone, individually, each day. As a result requests without personal messages will be automatically ignored!
- Using up all the newfound energy that came when I stopped eating wheat!
- Taking advantage of every day!
- Giving my body the best chance to thrive!
- All of my friends at MFP who show that big changes happen one day at a time!
