What is Wrong with Me?

We were able to lose weight in our late 30’s. Now we’re Over 40 and the weight is creeping back on despite exercise and diet. We start to notice more bloating in the stomach area. What is wrong with us??
Ughhh!

First, and foremost, there is NOTHING wrong with you! Either you want to get fit and are willing to do what it takes OR you want to keep talking about it. It makes no difference to anyone but you. You are the same amazing person to your friends, family, and co-workers no matter what you weigh.

But do you like yourself? Do you like how you feel? Are you content with your life? Do you feel fulfilled?

If you do, great!

If you want better for yourself it’s time to face some realities. Ready?

Numero Uno: Demand honest answers from yourself to these tough questions before you drown your sorrows in a box of wine:

1) What is your food intake? Not enough? Too much? Calculate the correct amount of calories to reach your goals.
2) What foods do you eat most often? Healthy fats, lean proteins, whole grains, fruit, and vegetables? Or processed junk?
3) Is your water intake sufficient? You need water. Period. You can find out why in a million places online…..google water. 🙂
4) Is your exercise program geared towards your intended goals? Or do you choose activities that you like most? Spend your training sessions doing the work that gets results. Save the fun stuff for in between.
5) Is your stress level through the roof? If you’re anxious, worried, and stressed your body is going to respond with its own mechanisms, sending out armies of hormones to help you cope but that will also promote fat storage…I know, not fair!

Menopause, arthritis, illness, workload, children, grandchildren, family commitments, holidays, celebrations….Yep! There are lots of excuses that are totally understandable. But, are you going to keep using them?

It’s time to Get Fit Over 40. Lift yourself fit!

  1. I have been eating healthy, exercising daily and canNOT lose more than 10 pounds. I accumulated a lot of weight by 80 pounds years on medication but have been med free the last 8 months. Your correct, its as if my metabolism has crashed altogether!

    • I hear you Marie! A body on medication has its own priorities, and weight loss is not one of them! As your body clears itself of the medicines and you faithfully implement healthy nutrition and exercise habits, your metabolism will wake up. Your body will come around to seeing things your way because it wants to be healthy! Wishing you health and happy weight loss! ~karen
