So sorry to hear you have been having trouble using some of the tools here intended to help you meet your goals Grammajudy but so very happy to hear we have helped you get on the right track! We are here to help you reach your goals!!
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) I get most of my exercise a couple times a week at the 'Y' walking in the pool. I DO have insurance coverage, (thank God for my hubby's 20 year stint with Uncle sams Navy). I am 61, and have been insulin dependent for 42 years. Send me a note if you wanna talk. OH & drink LOTS of water, and just have fun...DON"T make it 'just another chore'.

people often say that motivation doesn't last. well neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily. zig ziglar
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. 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!
