b_rabbit added a topic in Gluten-Free Sports and FitnessNewly Diagnosed; Welcome Ideas To Get Running Againgood evening forum folks -
has been over a year since i've been able to get motivated / stick to my running. now recently diagnosed with celiac's (i see a dietician thursday). i'm relieved - to know i may have an answer to why i've been so depressed, unmotivated, and chronically tired (not to mention looking like a pot belly pig with stick legs forever) . so getting ready to go for the gluten-free diet, even though this requires saying goodbye to mike's hard lime ! want to run again and start weight training. mostly have done so in the past for mental health and to feel like i've accomplished something just for me.
would love to hear from you - any similar experiences, what got / keeps you motivated, and what i might "watch out" for on this journey.
also - anyone know if wearing a medical bracelet is necessary? (right now, i guess i'm having a hard time taking this disease seriously)
thanks for your time - hope to hear from you !
