Hi My name is Maria. I am 48 years old, and today is my first day of my challenge.
I have been trying to get in shape over the last 5 years, and have had some success. I have lost 15 lb and kept it off. Now I want to focus on not just losing weight but feeling fit and strong.
I had spent all of my 20s and 30s exhanused and sick, and didn’t know why. After much testing, I was told it was psychological, and nothing was physically wrong with me, so I had all but resigend to the idea that I am just sickly and more tired than most people. Indeed it was depressing. I had tried sleeping as much as I could, I had tried a variety of diets such as vegan and sugar free, never alcohol. But nothing got rid of my being tired all the time and it effected every area of my life.
Then after speaking with a family member when I was 41, she told me she was diagnosed with Ceilac Disease. This is something my Grandmother had as well, and so I decided to cut all gluten out of my diet and see what would happen. It worked. In 3 years, I felt better than I ever have. I am now 7 years gluten free, and I feel better than I have since I was a teenager. I now have the strenght to care for myself in different ways, and I want to experiece everything I missed becuase I was too sick.
I have been easy hiking and I was completely exhausted. I couldn’t keep up with everyone, and I felt weak. I have also been easy cycling, and the same results, where I could not keep up and had to constantly stop. I was ashamed, although I know I shouldn’t be. I want to be stronger so I can do these things that I really enjoyed once.
