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.

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.

SparkPoints: 70,407

Fitness Minutes: 50,644

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.

Hi. Bettie,

I did get her a counselor, she's been seeing her for a few years. At first it totally pissed. Her off, but quickly realized she needed it and has many times thanked me.

We've been though marriages, divorce, children being raised, poor times, excellent times, we get a little angry at each other, but usually within a few hours we are hugging again. She's not just my friend, she's also both a sister and spiritual D to me. She looks at me as her friend, sister and spiritual. Mom. I helped her veto come to b a Jehovah. Witnesses,,studying with her for quite a time. We r extremely close. I'd never in our 44 yrs of friendship hurt her on purpose nor she me.

It's very hard to watch someone you love as much as life do this. I did call her therapist and let her know a few things, and will keep that up.

Thanks for the concern, but she'd never hurt me by being mean to me. Nor I her. Diane
