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.

    I'm glad that they listened to your experience you're having with their foods. I've heard that the prepackaged diet food systems have come a long ways. I saw on TV that you can get prepackaged food with organic fresh produce so you don't have to shop. The system I bought you had to buy your own fresh fruits and veggies. It was Nutrisystem back in the 90's or early 2000s. Anyways, a long time ago and I couldn't eat the stuff it was so processed and weird tasting. That's probably changed now too. But I'm glad that the company you use cares about your experience and will make better changes to keep you happy. emoticon

    Hi, Karen! Thanks for adding me as a friend. I see that you are a 'crazy cat woman' like I am. I love my cats! I have 3 inside and a feral colony of 5 living outside. I captured 12 this summer, including 3 of those outside. We adopted 2 (giving me my 3 inside) and adopted out all the others.

    ANYWAY, let me know if I can help you in any way on your journey.
