I Coach Women Over 50 or 60, Lose Weight with Lasting Results
I am a Certified Weight-Loss and Life Coach, helping women who are over 50 and 60 lose weight, for the last time. If you are a successful woman who hasn't figured out how to get to your goal weight and stay there, I can help.
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?" You can learn to lose weight.
Do you want to learn to love what loves you? Do you want to break-up your love affair with binge-ready foods and thoughts that sabotage your success? Do you want to get to your goal weight and stay there? No matter how old you are?
If you are ready to give up the struggle with food and weight, once and for all, you are in the right place.
Mindset is so important to successful weight loss. The first belief is that it is never to late to lose weight. It is never too late to discover what you love.
This is not Morse Code but a list of the natural fluctuations of my weight over the past month.
If you are post-menopausal, your body’s ability to lose fat may have slowed down. If you are over 60 and have developed thyroid issues (it is estimated that one woman in eight will develop a thyroid disorder during her lifetime.), it may be slower still. If your weight fluctuates, do you freak out?
You decided to eat healthy. You have given up those “prized” foods (pizza, cupcakes, ice cream), and you are losing about 1# a week. Some weeks it is .5 pounds a week. Your mind then looks to a time when you did successfully lose weight way back when, and dropped 13 pounds in one month. That’s how I lost weight in my 40s.
You might think, “Only 1 pound a week after all this hard work!” That might cause you to throw in the towel. Give it up.
If progress is slow, and if you are moving in the right direction, what is the problem? If you are holding on to beliefs that you should be losing weight faster, (thoughts created by looking to your past) let us examine whether hanging on to those beliefs is in your best interest.
Are you ready for the future? Women over the age of 60 are estimated to spend from $5Trillion to $15Trillion dollars every year. That is you.
We are imagining a different kind of retirement. An active, healthy and engaged life.
Mary Oliver asks us, “What will you do with your one wild and precious life?”
The future is calling. Will you be there with a clear mind and a strong body? Or will you be spending inordinate amounts of time thinking about food, worrying about your weight, deciding what to eat, criticizing your efforts and your body?
Did you know that quitting could be the habit that is slamming your weight loss goals?
I continually work on NOT QUITTING.
I used to be an expert quitter.
I had a small business in the 80s and I quit.
I was in theater and film and I quit. I still like my reasons for quitting (having a family), but the fact is that I quit.
I would try healthy eating plans to lose weight and quit each one. I quit being vegan; I quit being vegetarian; I quit doing Atkins.
I would think a lot about exercise. Especially when I was watching TV. I remember “the Bean.” The Bean was going to get me to exercise without fear of hurting my back and give me a six pack. I made a promise to myself as I was dialing the number on my TV screen, “You are definitely going to exercise this time.” Yet the 1st time I blew up that bean (you have to fill it with air), boom -- I hurt my back. I quit.
