I used to be crazy energy girl went to the gym 5 days a week and swimming class before I started getting really sick. I didn't lose weight when I got sick, kinda the opposite I got this weird puffy water-like weight gain that wouldn't go away.

I've lost the poofed out belly and the puffyness and went back to the gym for the first time on Monday. Did 25 minutes of stairmaster ( about died), then did Muscle sculpting class on Wednesday ( took it easy had a bit of trouble keeping up), then did yoga class today ( sat out a couple moves), but I feel amazing and the best part is, I don't really hurt that much. I used to get such bad muscle pain that I would down Alleve like candy and just lie there, exhausted. I took it easy cause its been awhile, but not having that crazy muscle aches is so incredible.

I do get insanely starving though. I came back from yoga today and inhaled my food and was looking for more. I told my instructors what I had been going through ( the yoga guy's bf has celiac disease!)

and they were awesome in response to it, especially since I dissapeared from their classes about 6 months ago unexplicably.

I find that my energy is coming back, its slow but I think mine might be faster than some but I wasn't Really badly sick for all that long ( 8 mos). ( sorry for the bad grammar).

It's been a month and I'm back at the gym, taking it easy but excited about the new rock wall they are building.

Not sure about the swimming anymore because I had duodenal ulcers from H. Pylori, pretty sure that was from the pool.

Glad to hear you are doing so well after being gluten-free. You are much younger than me so your body will respond more quickly than mine has lately :angry: I'm 46 and try to get to the gym, but work and such... Excersize is so good at reducing stress, which I am realizing is harder to handle with the celiac disease. And then when I accidentally get glutenized, I'm out for a week or more from that dang fatigue. So then when i finally get back to the gym I have to start all over again it seems. Keep up the good work!
