You probably had a lot of stored energy and you were rested. The second time around may be a little more laborous. But I rejoice in your report. Seems like your body has experienced healing.

I know this is a couple weeks old, but I just saw this.

How exciting!!! I loved getting my body back after going gluten free. Right now, I'm right smack dab in the middle of dealing with a thrown out back (structural, not gluten). I can't WAIT to get back to being able to be active again.

I love hearing about others who have gotten their mobility, and/or endurance, and/or energy back, via going gluten-free. Nobody truly understands unless they've been through it.

I'm excited for you. I hope you're doing as well now as you were. Don't push yourself too hard or you'll end up in physical therapy like me. :rolleyes: Slow and steady wins the race, and all that...

Cheers!

Nancy

thanx guys,your right that nobody understands how you struggle gluten-free and getting back to your level of fitness as b4, there was a lady at the gym and i could allways go faster and longer than her and i think it miffed her ( im not perticulary competitive) when the gluten-free hit i struggled and the lady beat me on the treadmill, to say i was cross was an understaement!!!!!!! the lady was rejoicing in her run ( and her victory) so i didnt have the heart to tell her i was ill and it would have sounded sour grapes as well. when i did my run she was there on the other treadmill with me so when i beat her i just smiled. may be im more competative than ide like to admit. the second run you were right about and was disastrous and im sooo glad she want at the gym that day. ive bought a treadmill for the house now so the days i dont feel good i can take it slow and i dont push myself too hard in trying to prove things to other people, your right i dont want an injury!!! thanx for replying. x

    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.  
    • Gluten free apparently not helping entirely
      Jean, Maybe your boss can find you a job in the office for a while?  It's worth asking maybe? It's not easy being on constant travel with celiac disease but it can be done.  Your effort to find safe food is going to be harder than most but it is not impossible.  But if you can't manage it you should really think about getting a non-travel job.  Your boss may be willing to work with you on an office position, even if it's temporary.  That would give you some time to look for a local job and also eat a safer diet. It's really up to you to control your diet and make sure it is safe.  If you can't figure out how to  do that while traveling you owe it to yourself to figure a way out of the travel. Celiac disease isn't always fun and games.  Not always.   I hope you find a way to improve your circumstances.
    • Gluten Free baby food pouches?
      Anyone know of any baby food pouches that are gluten free?  We love to have them on the go for our kids (not just baby), but I have no idea which ones to get now!  We used to get Meijer brand and Plum.   Thanks!
    • gluten free, oat free, egg free breakfast ideas needed for 6 year old
      Thanks for everyone's suggestions!  I think I felt at a loss when we had to cut oats- we used to do cheerios and oatmeal regularly and now those are out.  She has a sensitivity to oats as well as wheat/barley/rye. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      The bloating has, if anything, got worse. It seems better when I'm lay down, when I stand it gets worse. Although the lymph swelling has gone down so maybe I'm through the worst. Hope so anyway... I never used to get a great deal of GI symptoms. Certainly not so serious as the other stuff. It's making me wonder if I just react differently now having been gluten-free for some time. I've noticed lot's of you saying that reactions seem to change over time. Of course its possible the other stuff was masking the GI things. I almost dont trust my memory of those times anymore because a whole chunk of my life seems to have been lived through a brain fog. Tomorrow I'm thinking of going away for a couple of days, maybe just taking some ultra simple food with me so I can try and settle my stomach by boring it into submission

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
