Bettie committing to a healthy lifestyle

My name is Bettie Colley. I am 60 years of age. Due to type 2 diabetes, I suffer from many other medical problems: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression, and other problems.

What I need is to learn to eat more healthy foods and to commit to exercising consistently. I have learned a great deal from SP about the affects certain food has on the body. This has been extremely helpful in shopping for food that will help me achieve my goal of a healthy body.

My name is Bettie Colley. I am 60 years of age. Due to type 2 diabetes, I suffer from many other medical problems: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression, and other problems.

What I need is to learn to eat more healthy foods and to commit to exercising consistently. I have learned a great deal from SP about the affects certain food has on the body. This has been extremely helpful in shopping for food that will help me achieve my goal of a healthy body.

I have also learned various exercises that will help me strengthen my body. Without exercising I will never be able to get my medical problems under control.

I look forward to working with the SparkCoach to, hopefully, become more commited to my goals.

Member Since: 6/14/2011

SparkPoints: 55,469

Fitness Minutes: 40,534

My Goals:
My major goal is to lose 56 pounds. I have type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc. Losing weight will help me with all of these conditions. I need all of the support I can beg, borrow, or steal.

My Program:
I am starting again to get healthy. Sparkpeople appears to be one of the best website I have visited that give me the support I need. Setting the amount of calories, sodium, carbohydrates, etc. that should or should not be taken in on a daily basis is (as the kids say) the bomb(?).

Personal Information:
I was born in Rome, Ms. We moved to Chicago in 1964. I now live in DeKalb, IL the home of NIU (Northern Illinois University). For those who care my email address is bmcolley53@yahoo.com

Other Information:
My favorite author is Dean Koontz. My son does not like him because he writes too descriptive. I like him because he is the right amount of scary. Anything else you would like to tell people. Could include things like your favorite books or movies, a quote, anything.

Hmmm, do allergies make you pukey and give you a metallic taste in the mouth? I should check that out. Thanks Bettie!

Hi Bettie,
Thanks for checking out my blog. Tropicare is a great opportunity for islanders to get medical care. We are fortunate! Even more fortunate that they are doing the services at our worksite!

Hi Bettie,
It was a "day off from work" but a very productive day, on a personal level.
