There is no time like the present - make the most of it!

I am a 63-year-old female with a myriad of health issues, many of which will be vastly improved with a healthier lifestyle. I am keenly interested in using the nutrition tracker to develop a balanced food plan for myself in spite of my multiple food allergies. Additional allergies I deal with include MCS - Multiple Chemical Sensitivities along with Environmental Allergies.

Glad to be here!

=======================
Added 09 Mar 2013 - I recently found my framed version of the following which I read daily in the 1970's. Time to remind myself of this daily:

The Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble,
it's a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself.
Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
- Max Ehrmann, 1927

“Stop wasting so much energy hating your body; it makes you weaker.
Everything good in your life begins from the moment you begin accepting, understanding, respecting, and loving your true self.”

I do revel in that weirdness. The cute thing is that all of my students notice my tracker and like to see it light up. I keep hoping they will get the idea that exercise is important. Thanks for your warm support!

Marriage indeed can be hard on weight issues!! You're so right -- and we see so many people at their peak of attractiveness for the wedding day who after that . . . maybe it's not so urgent to remain that way???

Nz vote every 3 years. I think it is too short but then on the other hand it is not like government change every 3 years. This is the third term for national. All parties and leaders promise the world and once they are in, they do just what they want. I am very cynical about it all.
