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.
