I've been a member for quite awhile now but keep disappearing. I'm sadly forced to use dialup still which prevents me from joining in with a lot of activities or being able to access the site all of the time.

Until I'm on high speed internet and out on my own I'll probably disappear from the site off and on for unknown periods of time.

SparkPoints: 2,997

Fitness Minutes: 550

My Goals:
As of now, none. I'm forced to live at home still where I'm not really allowed my own life so I'm not allowed to eat the way I want or take care of myself the way I want.

My Program:
My only excercise comes from my Wii Fit and Balance Board.... if I have batteries for the board.

Personal Information:
I'm 30 and forced to live at home still due to lack of transportation and lack of help getting my license. I'm really not allowed to have a life here so there's not much to say.

I have chronic asthma and deadly food allergies so I'm pretty limited with my food and means of exercise.

Other Information:
I'm stuck with dialup still where I live so I have lost a lot of interest in most things, but I used to enjoy web and graphics design. It's hard to hold interest when you can't do anything online though...

I read a lot and like to play video games and watch movies since I don't get to get out of the house at all and have a life :(

Did you know you can mail order almond milk? hemp milk? etc? they are packed in that tetris packaging and Amazon sells them by the case (usually 6). It's shelf stable and usually the per-each price is cheaper than the local grocery store!! There's a LOT of groceries that can be bought at Amazon and other places online! Surprising! So that may be something to check out?

Hi Jennifer -
hey, just read your comment on the article about vegetarian and vegan and non-dairy sources of calcium etc - I could not eat any store-boughten pasteurized/homogenized milk while I was pregnant. It just filled me with mucus and I could hardly breathe - might have been a form of asthma, although I was never diagnosed. But I'd have enough breathing issues that the coughing and struggle would cause me to have an upset stomach. So I started reading lables to get my calcium etc. Spinach does have a lot of calcium, but so do turnip greens, mustard greens etc. Soybean is also cited as a source but I discovered I also had an allergy to soy.

Here's a relatively recent (to me) website that has a lot of information and their point is that 3/4 cup of mustard greens has same amount of calcium as one serving of dairy... (unfortunately here in comments, there isn't a link generator so you will need to copy link and paste it into new tab or window.)

http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/calcium.php

They have a cute table of non-dairy foods highest in calcium and then a sample menu of what to eat to obtain 1,000 mg of calcium http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/calcium.php#t
able1

Have to remember there is MUCH public propaganda out by the Dairy Industry and so you really have to hunt hard for the information.

I also obtain a fair amount of calcium from yogurt and kefir - I find I can handle fermented dairy far better than I can pasteurized and homogenized dairy.

So just have to keep reading lables!!!

Hang in there!
Julia

Jennifer, can you at least join some teams long enough for us to help establish where you are and what options you might have? I realize you won't be able to connect very often on the dial-up, but at least it would be on your sparkpage for the rest of us to read and know what your interests are (or were??), location, like a State team or a City team, etc?

I gotta get some sleep!!
Talk later!
Julia
