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

Yes, it was SWEDESUE who recommended Fresh Factors: her dog pelle is 14 and still running with her! Charlie thinks that they taste good, really enjoys them!

And: the Metacam is really pretty amazing with respect to its transformative powers!

emoticon & emoticon say Hi and Thanks for the bloglove on their post about the emoticon . Ain't it the truth that we love to blame our equipment when we ought to be looking at the operator. It's the same with our weight - A well stocked kitchen and a good gym are a great help but if we don't walk the walk - we're just going to sit the sit and get bigger and bigger. LOL. Thank goodness for our sparkfriends cheering us on.

"Real" food was cooked on a wood stove at my grandfather's home too -- and my goodness it tasted good (all from his little farm: chicken, veggies, preserves . . . water from the well).

Might be worth asking your vet if the Metacam could be adjusted to whatever level of thyroid function/meds your pup has presently: our vet didn't absolutely "rule it out", simply said caution would be required . . .
