I've been in Pilates for 6 weeks now and I love it! My gluteous maximus (butt) is firmer, my back muscles are less tender and problematic and it is easy to do. I am stronger than I have ever been! My class is one on one.

Wendy--

I am looking at one on one classes right now. Wish I could get a friend to go in with me--huge price cut! Anywho, are you using the machines then?? I would love to do that--think it would be great for my fibromyalgia..even better than the mat class.

ok im the newbie on this one, i want to start yoga or pilates, whats the big differance...im not sure which one to do??

Hi Moongirl, from what I understand pilates has been around since around 1915 and is a specific method of physical movement designed to stretch, strengthen, elongate, and align the body, used in sports training as well as physical rehabilitation- so it's good stuff. Yoga, on the other hand, has been around for thousands of years and involves a physical piece (like pilates) with specific postures combined with a mind and breath awareness- so there is a connection between mind, body, and breath through movement. It moves energy as well as emotion that is blocked within the body so there is a physical as well as emotional transformation. If that makes sense?

I personally love yoga and it works for me, I love the challenge of it and I like the feeling of well being it gives me. The only pilates I have tried was Winsor pilates and I just didn't take to it like I did yoga. My mom tried both yoga and pilates but she preferred pilates. She has some knee, hip, and wrist injuries and found it difficult to do some of the foundation poses in yoga such as downward dog and child's pose (this is not to say you can't do yoga if you have injuries it just didn't feel right to her) so she made her choice accordingly.

I would suggest maybe you try both to see what suits you best.

The doctors recommended I start doing pilates to strengthen my bones. Does anyone else do this?

Pilates is awesome! I was introduced to pilates by my figure skating coach and have been addicted ever since! Not only does it make you feel stronger, you feel more balanced relaxed and healthy! And I haven't met any1 who hasn't seen results yet!

Yep... I started pilates several years ago and it helps my body feel at its best. I actually started teaching it which led me to create a web-page dedicated to it. See my profile for more info!

Cheers to you all feeling your best, Always!

I love Pilates and Yoga too and take one class a week and see results, but i think to see huge improvements you need to step it up to 2-3 times a week. I hear the pilates machine is good

    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
