Topics I've Started

Been Awhile

24 March 2014 - 11:57 AM

I haven't been on here is quite some time and thought I would let everyone know how I am doing.  Celiac wise I'm doing great.

 

Last October I decided to take charge of my life and to do something about the chronic edema I had been suffering with for years.  I was tired, miserable and hated wearing compression hose.  My good friend drug me to a zumba class and that's all it took.  I have been doing zumba and spin classes ever since and hired a personal trainer back in Jan.  I have lost a total of 20 pounds and I'm the most fit I have been in years.  I also have been able to ditch the compression garments!

 

Of course the exercise has brought on it's own challenges.  Just when things started going good I started having issues with my heart rate.  Long story short, I've been diagnosed with IST (inappropriate sinus tachycardia).  It really hinders my activity level.  I'm not going to let that stop me though.  I'm currently under the care of a cardiologist. 

 

So all in all, I'm doing good.  I've missed this forum and hope to be on here more in the future.
