A number of things influenced me. I had lost 20 pounds several years before (doing a Spark-like program on my own without the Spark support and tools). I gained 3 pounds on vacation that I could not keep off. So I decided to get serious. And, as long as I was getting rid of those 3, why not get rid of a few more since ...
...I have diabetes and heart disease in my family
...I need to set an example for my children
...I want to set a good example for my relatives with health problems
...I wanted to look good when performing
...I want to be in shape and healthy for whenever grandbabies start arriving (not yet, I just want to be ready!)
The only restrictions any of us have in life are those we place on ourselves.
