You are MORE than welcome :-)

If you need help accessing grief therapy, etc., send me a private SparkMessage and I will send you a link to a number of sites which you may find helpful in achieving this. Unfortunately because my Spark time is mostly taken up by a team I co-moderate, I don't always respond to other teams' posts - it was just that your name (MY name) caught my attention - LOL!

Thanks Kris, I will talk to my Dr but I need to talk to my insurance first because I'm on SSA disability I'm not sure that I can pay for any of it with only 750 coming in. I will do my best.
I do have a Spark page and that would help me a lot.
Thank you again

Hi Kristine - welcome back from another Kristine :-)

You CAN do this with SP - use the Nutrition Tracker in conjunction with asking your Dr for a referral to Dietitian. She (usually women) will put you on the right track re food so that you are getting a good mix of nutrients and fibre. Using the Nutrition Tracker by weighing all your food for increased accuracy will help you to stay on track, and ensure that you can tweak your intake as and when necessary.

I know that it is a bit of a hassle doing this, but believe me, it can and does work. I have done this for years because I have food allergies/intolerances, my husband can't eat certain things because of a couple medical conditions and my son was severely allergic to a lot of food, as is my grandson. You CAN do it - it just needs perseverance and determination, AND the input of a Dietitian!

Have you thought about talking with your Dr about how you are feeling after the deaths of your mother and husband? It sounds like you are suffering from grief, and a Grief Therapist would be very beneficial for you. Below is a link you may like to read:
www.helpguide.org/mental/grief_loss.

While you are with your Dr ask for a referral to a Physiotherapist so that you can be properly assessed, preferably with the aid of x-rays, so that exercises can be prescribed which will be beneficial rather than harmful! I have arthritis of the hips and spine and scoliosis of the spine. I was referred to a Pilates Class taken by a qualified Physiotherapist/Pilates Instructor. It was really marvelous because if the others were doing something that wasn't suitable for me, she would give me an alternative or a totally different exercise. It was also really good being in the classes because as it was small, there was genuine hands-on for adjustments. Even an inch can make a huge difference between doing good, doing nothing or doing harm.

You may like to consider creating a SparkPage so that others can drop by and leave encouraging little messages. This has a great affect of helping us to achieve our goals because it is how we get more support :-)

Take care,
Kris

I have been gone for some time now and really want to start back-up but not sure if this will work for me. I know that Sparkpeople works that isn't the issue, the issue is that I am allergic to vitamin C and citric acid, so this has cut most everything from my diet. I can't have any fruit, some veggies, and a lot of sauces, most peanut butter, and all cereals except for oat meal. Believe me this isn't fun I get a lot of cravings mostly for fruit. I can't have any condiments except for mustard ( YUK). So it is hard for me to even eat salads, believe it or not even lettuce has citric acid in it. Ok I have complained long enough, really if anyone has suggestions please let me know because I really need to get this weight off. I have osteoarthritis in my L5 and S1 and in the middle of my spine, my hips, and my shoulders. My right shoulder is bone to bone so is my L5 and S1 vertebra. I know that there are sitting exercises but my motivation hasn't been very good. I live by myself and get into real depressed and poor me attitude which I am working on, but since my mother and husband died six months apart I have had very low motivation.
