Approaching 60, and overweight? Weight-loss and Life Coaching for Women 50+.
I am a Certified Weight Loss and Life Coach. I help women who are approaching 50 lose weight, for the last time. Using the latest research in obesity and neuroscience, you can finally answer the question: "If I am so SMART, why can't I lose weight?"
If you are ready to give up the struggle with weight, once and for all, you are in the right place.
One of the most toxic thoughts I hear regularly from clients who have decided to eat healthy foods is: “I deserve a treat.”
Women who work hard at being moms, business owners, or employees continue to believe it is a pleasurable activity to put something sweet in their mouths, even though it sets them back from achieving their long-term pleasurablegoals. Not to mention that the action of going off their chosen meal plan creates a flurry of negative thoughts and opinions about themselves.
Women who are retired use this toxic thought because they think they have earned “treats” after living a long, and sometimes trying life. "Isn’t it now time to kick up my heels and do what I want?" "I have earned this!"
Unfortunately, if you are carrying an extra 50-100#s there is no kicking up your heels!
One of the top reasons people fail in their resolve to release weight, is their brain signaling fear of hunger.
Fear of hunger is in our DNA. Your brain is driven to replenish food when the stores are low.
In the past, the brain/body had to accommodate periods of famine and the changes of the season that depleted food sources. Today, in the U.S. we have access to every type of food all day, all year long.
We are not at risk for starvation. We can actually survive (this is really pushing it) without any food for 30-40 days. That means we won’t starve to death unless we do not eat from 720 to 960 hours.
Many clients express fear when they sign up for weight loss coaching.
“What if I can’t succeed?”
“I am afraid to be hungry.”
“I am afraid of deprivation.”
Fear is in our DNA. Losing weight takes change and we know that the brain likes to be efficient and it is efficient at overeating and eating our emotions! There are many complex factors that have created a world where 70% of the American population is overweight.
