You can Lose Weight After 50 or 60, Without Deprivation
You want to be thin, healthy, vibrant and live with joy and purpose in your 50s, 60s and beyond......You have tried weight loss programs before....WELCOME
If you can’t figure out why you can't lose weight, WELCOME.
Year after year, another pound or two. No big deal, you tell yourself.
But deep down, you want this war with your weight, aging and your body to BE OVER.
You are here because you believe there is a way out and I HAVE A PROCESS TO TAKE YOU THERE. I am Pat Beaupre Becker, an online weight-loss coach who has helped many women over 50 and 60 to lose weight with lasting results. I was once just like you.
You join gyms, even hired a nutritionist, and your primary care doctor gives you her personal tips on how to control your weight. It seems easy to her. She just doesn’t get you. You don’t get you!!
You have read every issue of Oprah and all the books on diet and stress and good fats and bad fats. Your mind is swirling. You know what to do, yet you don’t seem to have the motivation to do it.
So the question is can you believe you are capable of succeeding and giving up the battle with food and self-image and looming diabetes?????
IMAGINE YOUR FUTURE IF NOTHING CHANGES
Imagine you are now approaching your 65th birthday, and you are still eating quantities of unhealthy food. Another 10 years, another 10 Lbs.
Your knees are working harder to hold you up, your heart is working harder to get you up the stairs.
Are you spending more time at the doctor’s office than visiting friends?
Are you making excuses why you can’t join your grandchildren on a hike or an exotic vacation?
IMAGINE ANOTHER FUTURE
Now, imagine you are approaching your 70th birthday and you are shopping for that fabulous dress in a size you haven’t seen in years.
You feel good and look great!
You are planning a tour of Italy, France, or Asia.
You are walking and laughing with friends twice a week.
You wake up a little creaky, but with a smile on your face, grateful you have another day!
Maybe you are getting ready for that art class or Italian or Japanese for beginners!
Do you know that your 60s and 70s and 80s are the decades of authenticity and freedom for women? It is your time to choose YOU. Decide for yourself--with purpose and intention--how you want to spend your time.
You are at a point of decision.
You can either continue down the path of least resistance, the path you have been traveling, or you can choose the path less traveled. The path of least resistance is not always pretty and doesn’t always feel good, just familiar. You know that path. It gets you the same results you are currently getting.
If you want something different to happen now, you can change the direction of your health and your future. But you are going to have to do something different. You will need to make a new choice and take action toward a healthier lifestyle.
Become the treasure. Become the gift.
This is your time.
You have nothing to lose, except your worries! Pat is available to talk to you about your next steps towards successful weight loss. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
A TURNING POINT
My turning point came when a friend was visiting and took an “accidental” photo that captured my torso, no head – and I was shocked! I had been listening to food chatter for years. "Should I eat that? What happens if I just give up lunch or dinner? I will only have one bite. I can by this box of cookies for my husband, Bill (and this one for me.) (Then I would eat Bill’s and then mine.) I will one eat one more. I will start anew tomorrow. "
And my weight went up and up. I would scour catalogs for clothes that would elegantly hide my body.
Looking at that photo was like ripping off the band aid.
What I saw was the truth of my physical and mental suffering. That I seemed to have lost control.
I set out on a journey and learned about the addictive qualities of flour and sugar and how they were not my friends.
I lost 40 pounds and studied neuroplasticity and the latest studies about the brain and how to create new habits.
Emotional eating was a big problem for me.
I didn’t want to face up to my past and chose to eat instead.
Then my problem became eating and not my wicked past.
You get what I mean?
I have a new world view. God doesn’t make junk. We each come here worthy of love and with a gift to offer to family, friends, coworkers, and our community.
So it took me a bunch of years. Just as it has taken you. The beauty is that each day is another chance. Another day to learn to manage your physical and mental health.
Using knowledge from my teachers and brain and obesity research, I have culled tools to assist you in becoming the best version of yourself you can be right now. At the weight you choose to be.
Stacking the deck in your favor.
My clients have surprised and delighted themselves with their progress in weight loss and managing anxiety and critical thinking. They have lost weight, planned vacations, passed tests, sanely cared for loved ones through cancer diagnosis, succeeded at work and in getting a new job.
Healing your relationship with yourself is key to discovering who you want to be and deciding what weight is best for you.
How you want to spend your mental energy is up to you.
I will teach you how to harness your perfectly-equipped mind to CREATE a whole, happy, silly, loving, worthy life.
As we grow older, we discover a new reality.
Our bodies slow down, and seem to be impacted by gravity more each day.
Our social and emotional intelligence becomes more crystalized.
We have more discernment and wisdom pops up here and there.
We seek purpose, meaning and context for our daily lives.
If we allow the changes in our body to take the lead, our confidence can falter. If you focus on the exterior to the exclusion of your rich interior, you will miss your great strengths and gifts.
You have nothing to lose, except your worries!
