Hi, Pat. I see you are on some of the same teams as me.

You have a lot going on with your health. I hope that you have good support from your Dr and a Registered Dietitian for your weight-loss and improved health. If you don't have a dietitian, ask your Dr for a referral to one. It is very important given your health.

Also, a referral to a Physiotherapist would also be beneficial to helping you do safely what you are able to.

Make good use of the tools here. The Nutrition Tracker is fantastic and I strongly recommend you use it. I weigh all of my food for increased accuracy and enter it all in to it. It is amazing how, when we are able to see where the calories/fats/carbs/protein is coming from that we can tweak to ensure that we are within the ranges that we need to be in.


Good luck
Kris

Hi! My name is Pat. I am 70 years old, soon to be 71 March 18. I am female. I am in a power wheel chair. I cannot walk, due to an auto accident in 1967. I have several medical conditions wrong with me. I have, Asthma, rhinitis, I am a diabetic type 2, I have hypo-theroidism ,diverticulosis, acid reflux, congestive heart failure, osteo-arthritice, gout, fiberomyalgia, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, edema, kidney(cronic renal insufficiency) and sleep apnea. I weigh about 315 lbs. I need all the help I can get. I can use my hands and arms. I can move my legs, but cannot stand for very long. I need help loosing weight, and finding ways to keep my sugar under control. I live at home with my husband. I hope I will be able to withstand this effort, and succeed. Thank you. Looking forward to meeting new friends.

started at 315 down to 308 and now 297. Goal is 200lbs. jmmorpar@peoplestel.net Pat101-Diabetic Pat101-diabetic
