Weight Loss isn't easy after 40, but you can find a light
Feeling tired, run down and exhausted kind of became the norm after I blew out those 40 candles.
It seemed that life took on a mundane outlook day in, day out. Am I right? It's the exact life I lived in my forties. It was as if the 40 candles on my cake ignited a change where my body, my life and my mindset took on a life of their own. No longer in control.
I remember the day vividly. I woke up one morning at about 6am. The sun was shining in my bathroom. I looked in the mirror. I looked tired despite a good night sleep. I had weight that seemed to have appeared from nowhere. I lost my zest for life. I was only 42 and somehow got deep into a life of unfulfillment and lack of joy.
My health was far from ideal even though I thought I was eating healthy. I had aches and pains in places I didn't know existed. My bathroom stops were mostly uneventful and blocked up. It was as if my body decided to start aging rapidly. The weight kept piling up and my belly was always making an appearance 5 minutes before I did.
I tried and failed at many diets before I found something that worked for me
and I want you to know I totally understand what it feels like to feel stuck, and feel like nothing is or will ever make a difference. I've been there!
On the BMI scale, I was classified OBESE
Which was a bit surprising to me because I was ALWAYS on a diet, always “watching” what I was eating,
ALWAYS on the lookout for the next miracle product. You name it… I tried it…
I was forever caught in the vicious cycle of Yo-Yo dieting.
Each time I went on a new diet, I got excited because I thought “this time will be different.” And things would start off positive in that I lost weight. And I had that amazing feeling of having my clothes get too big and picking out new, smaller clothes that I felt great in.
But all the while I was suffering on these diets. I was hungry and deprived. I was grumpy!!
But that’s not the worst part. The worst part is that when I went off each diet, I’d continue eating healthy but I gave myself more wiggle room with what I ate and how much. And that’s when the weight came back on… every_single_ time!
That’s when I decided that there HAD to be a better way.
I made it my life’s work to study the real science about food and nutrition and learn why I was struggling for so many years - and I learned how to heal my metabolism so I could not only lose the weight, but keep it off for good.
I finally felt freedom with food and my body, and I learned how to eat and take care of myself that felt nurturing, rather than punishing.
I learned that it wasn't just about diet & exercise; they are only part of the equation.
I understood that unless I changed my relationship to food , unless I learned to relax and STOPPED doing violence to my body with restrictive diets and punishing exercises, I would always be on the losing end of that battle…
This realization led me to some pretty incredible results for myself and my clients.
The ultimate reward for me is not the weight that I lost but it’s the peace that I have made with my body. I am no longer at war with it, no longer wincing at my reflection in the mirror.
The reward is putting on clothes that I feel and look great in, the confidence I feel when I slip on a cute dress and a pair of heels. That for me is priceless!
I had more clarity than I had in years, and got my sexy back 🙂
Most important, I began to love my body. No more negative self-talk.
No more missing out on fun times with friends because I felt fat and ugly.
It is my goal to help you connect the dots and show you EXACTLY how you can do this too, no matter how far off track you've fallen.
