Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
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.
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.
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(?).
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 email@example.com
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.

Aloha Kakahiaka (good morning) Bettie!
We ask ourselves,
'Who am I to be BRILLIANT, GORGEOUS, TALENTED, FABULOUS?'
Actually, WHO are you NOT to BE? ... We are all meant to Shine...
And as we let our own light Shine, we unconsciously give other
people permission to do the same. -Marianne Williamson
Have a SParkling week.

Today's words of wisdom for thought come from Lucille Ball:
"Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world."
I thought this was a good one since today we were talking about treating yourself as your own best friend at Weight Watchers. Have a Terrifically Thankful Thursday being thankful for YOU!
