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: 69,776

Fitness Minutes: 50,164

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,, K DOES INDEED need to be hosp,, it COULD HELP IF ,, and this is the HARD part,, IF it'd HELP !! but in our area,, its a TOTAL JOKE !! Lots of "patients"??? who are from the state prison who are there,,, and they say t ALL the time "I wanted to be FREER so I read a book how to act (or from cell mates,, others in jail) nd I learned what do say. The food here and FREEDOM is SO MUCH better" !! Than they ACT OUT so they can STAY longer,,,, its HORRIBLE and one is NEVER SAFE for they think NOTHING of picking up furniture,, etc,, and THROWING It at someone !! OH MY GOODNESS !! In Maine there are NO GOOD Mental Health places,, unless you go up to Arcadia,, which is 4 hrs from here,, and most are not willing,, there's no fam;/friends support.
