Karen's Success Story

It is time for a totally refreshed Spark Page, including my introduction. I am 54 years old. Most of my life I have felt and looked younger than my age. However, I believe I am starting to feel my age and I know my weight is one of the factors that is impacting how I feel. I have many incentives to lose weight such as surviving a heart attack, arthritis in knees, I have zippo cartilage, which makes it more difficult to get around every day and the fact that both my mother and grandmother ...
It is time for a totally refreshed Spark Page, including my introduction. I am 54 years old. Most of my life I have felt and looked younger than my age. However, I believe I am starting to feel my age and I know my weight is one of the factors that is impacting how I feel. I have many incentives to lose weight such as surviving a heart attack, arthritis in knees, I have zippo cartilage, which makes it more difficult to get around every day and the fact that both my mother and grandmother had diabetes. I also believe that I am turning into the aspects of my mom that I totally hate such as being overweight,lacking motivation and now the litany of excuses are creeping in. I need to put a stop to these patterns. She has passed on and now I want to pass on these negative behaviors.

If it is hard to get going in the morning, try doing maybe just 10 minutes of stretching in the morning. Take baby steps and don't try doing a lot all at once. That might help you start stretching in the morning. Just do a few stretches. Sometimes we try to do too much all at once and we are just not ready. Work towards that goal. 10 minutes a day would be a good start, but if you can't do that, than try 5 minutes. Work your way up to the next 5 minute level.
