Hello all,

I hav emoticon emoticon e been on Spark People for a very long time and have been very frustrated because I couldn't figure out the Nutrition tracker'

Today SP_COACH_TANYA sent us a link and I finally was able to make the nutrition tracker work. I can't tell you how much that does for my ego.

Thank you Coach Tanya.

Love, Judy

emoticon I started here last February and I still have problems, too. But the more time I am able to spend at the site the better I am getting. I have many of the same issues as you physically. Don't get around very well(walking) emoticon I get most of my exercise a couple times a week at the 'Y' walking in the pool. emoticon I DO have insurance coverage, (thank God for my hubby's 20 year stint with Uncle sams Navy). emoticon I am 61, and have been insulin dependent for 42 years. Send me a note if you wanna talk. emoticon
OH & drink LOTS of water, and just have fun...DON"T make it 'just another chore'. emoticon

Have you signed in as a diabetic so you have the diabetic tracker. It helps you to know how many calories, Carbs, Fat and Protein you get every day. Tracking you food id the best way to start so set up your tracker.

To find friends you can search the many teams we have here. There are teams with Diabetics and teams with mobility issues.

I am 68 years young and it was difficult for me too i had never used a computer.
On your MY TRACKERS there is a search page it says web or SPARK. I used that to get about. Questions like.
Setting up DIABETES tracker.
FIND SPARK TEAMS
FIND CHAIR EXERCISES ( great exercises for people with mobility issues)

I hope you can get a little further ahead. it is a big site but once you know how it will be better. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Pat in Maine.

Pat in Maine.
I FEEL Healthier every day with my Spark Tracker.
I will do it slowly I like it that way.
Toodle-ooo! and Toodle- Pip!
JUST DO IT!

Be mindful that happiness isn't based on possessions, power, or prestige, but on relationships with people we love and respect.

Remember that while money talks, Friendships sing and laugh out loud.

I don't quite understand your note. Do you not have medical care? Do you know what is causing your pain? Do you live alone?

Please write to me personally if you want. Perhaps I can help.
