Another new discovery for me....I seem to have some gluten intolerance. Not getting sick or a full allergy, but my health coach was telling me that sometimes, the body craves what is really bad for it, and if you have a gluten intolerance, your body will do crazy stuff. I have found that my energy for cardio is so much stronger and I'm not trying to talk myself into another 5 minutes - I'm surprising myself and feeling like I can go another 5 and see how I feel! It's not nearly as restrictive as I had thought, and since I'm already eating pretty healthy, I only had to make a few substitutions, and it's really made a difference.
It's so interesting to me to see everyone's responses on here - to have the same diagnosis and such different needs still blows my mind, and it proves that we can't all be lumped together and we are all still very much individuals. My health coach has been giving me lots of suggestions, and for the first time, I'm not frustrated when something doesn't work. This is the first time, too, that I have stopped beating myself up for not making progress because I finally understand that there's so much more to this than just calories in and out, hard work, and restricting everything I do to no avail. I appreciate everyone's info on here, because with this diagnosis, things that work now might not work as my body changes, and I keep all of this in the back of my mind!
