Personal Journey and Menopause

Today, I'm going to talk about a personal journey. I won't be following any notes or trying to teach anything specific. I invite you to sit back and listen; you might find echoes of your own story in mine. I'm currently navigating my midlife season at 55, experiencing menopause. Throughout my life, I've often powered through challenges, but now I've realized the importance of listening to my body, especially during this less resilient phase.

 

Family Crisis and Impact on Well-being

Midway through last year, we faced a family crisis. My son was struggling with a mental illness, leading to sleep disturbances, increased stress, and challenges in maintaining overall well-being. Despite various efforts, including medical support and addressing hormonal imbalances, my energy levels plummeted, and my nervous system remained highly sensitive.

Life often brings disappointments, and today, I'm sharing my personal experience, particularly in the context of my health journey and recent Masterclass training. Disappointment is a common companion in our pursuits, whether it's achieving goals or navigating the challenges of a weight loss and health journey.

 

Understand Disappointment: It’s a 50/50 Reality

Disappointment is a universal part of life—a delicate balance between setbacks and successes, rejection and approval. We seldom discuss how to navigate and move through disappointment effectively. In my journey and with my clients, disappointment is a recurring theme, often rooted in unmet weight loss expectations.

Getting Real: My Disappointments

I'm getting personal today, sharing my disappointment with my latest master class. The first one didn't go as planned, and the recent experience has left me introspective. My goal is...

JOURNEY TO SUCCESSFUL WEIGHT LOSS AFTER MENOPAUSE

Starting a journey towards better health and a transformed lifestyle can be daunting, especially when faced with the challenge of breaking old habits and redefining success. 

 

For many women in midlife, the pursuit of weight loss and overall well-being often involves numerous attempts, each met with varying degrees of success. 

 

However, the key lies not in quick fixes but in embracing a sustainable, long-term approach. 

 

One of my clients, Alice, joins me to talk about her weight loss journey after menopause, highlighting the power of the Feminine Freedom Program (FFP) and the mindset shifts that can lead to lasting change.

 

“I never really felt successful; I never really gained success. I'm thinking most likely, because of the tweaks in lifestyle, I did improve eating habits, but not life-changing habits. So that was...

I want to talk about something that might raise an eyebrow or two – planning for failure. 

 

I can almost hear you saying, "Coach Kris, why on earth would I want to plan for failure? Isn't that counterproductive?"

 

Well, stick with me, and let's unpack why it's not just okay but crucial in our journey to wellness.

 

The Mindset Shift: Redefining Failure

Often, the fear of failure looms large when we start on a wellness journey. 

 

We question if we can truly show up for ourselves, especially when past attempts have left us feeling defeated. 

 

But what if we shifted our mindset and saw failure not as a dead-end but as a stepping stone? 

 

While talking to women in midlife, I often encounter the unspoken fear of failure. 

 

There is uncertainty if this time will be any different. 

 

Here's the thing – we need to...

The Power of Systems Over Goals

Picture this: a life where making healthy choices becomes second nature. It all starts with the realization that systems trump goals.

Weight loss in midlife and beyond requires a new approach to see the results you are hoping for. Whether those results are less weight, fewer inches around your middle, more energy, or increased health and wellness, you must strap on some extra patience and set up your expectations more carefully than when you were younger.

 

There is a good possibility that you have hurdles and life situations making it hard to take care of yourself. You might feel confused and discouraged about why your body gains weight over 40 even though you are actively trying to lose.

 

Getting your expectations to align with your new reality is key to maintaining a positive commitment and engagement to meet your weight loss goals once you hit your 40s.

 

Expectations in midlife set you up for failure or success

I spent years reading and referring back to my "manual of expectations." I had a marriage, homeschooling,...

What foods do we need to eat to support hormones in midlife?

 

Great question. But first, let's clear the air: certain foods and supplements can help SUPPORT your body during hormonal changes but not balance them. You won't be able to increase your hormone levels with these foods, but you can find symptom relief and increase your weight loss potential.

 

The only way to bring your hormones back would be with bio-identical hormones, which we will talk about another time.

 

1. Unmask the Culprits: Processed Foods and Inflammatory Oils

[Avoid the Junk]

Midlife throws its curveballs, and one sneaky culprit is the temptation of processed foods. From tortilla chips to Oreos, these so-called 'non-food' items can seriously mess with your hormones. Processed foods wreak havoc on your overall health and blood sugar levels; they offer no nutritional value.

Choose wisely among on-plan oils such as olive,...
