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,...

5 Tactics to Eat Right in Midlife and Boost Hormone Health

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,...

4 Ways to Stay Motivated, Lose Weight and Exercise after 50

Apple Podcast - Spotify

 

 

Hello friends, let's talk today about tips to stay motivated and on track in midlife. 

This is a hot topic in my Facebook communities and conversations with many women. 

 

Why is it so hard to stay motivated?

 

It's more than lacking self-discipline or laziness. In fact, the number one reason might be due to declining hormones. When you lose your estrogen, you often lose your get-up-and-go. You might also notice less energy in your mood and need more motivation. Lack of sleep might be slowing your energy level down, as well as a decrease in testosterone. Testosterone is your "get 'er done" hormone, while progesterone contributes to better mood and optimism, but when these hormones are low or non-existent, feeling motivated will be an issue.

 

Or perhaps you're just feeling discouraged because losing weight after 50 takes longer and is more challenging than you expected, even if...

4 Slimming Strategies: Eat Your Way to a Trim Midlife Belly

Nov 22, 2023

https://www.purple-planet.com/ 

 

If you’re feeling frustrated by your jeans feeling tighter or loosening your belt another notch, then you aren’t alone. A woman’s body goes through multiple changes between the ages of 40 and 60. Some of these changes you’ll notice (weight gain) and others you won’t (higher cortisol).

 

But often the result of both is the same - needing to buy larger jeans and an increased muffin top. 

 

Dealing with stubborn weight and a wider waistline was not my dream for midlife and I doubt it is yours. So let me walk you through 4 Strategies you can start to move toward a trim belly in midlife.



The Mindset Shift: Understanding the Power of Nutrition

There are specific reasons why we gain weight in midlife. Menopause isn’t all to blame. 

 

Age-related factors like decreased estrogen, loss of muscle mass, and increase in cortisol levels all play a part in the fat packing around your...

Top 4 Tips that Shrunk my Midlife Belly Fat

When I hit menopause I felt like my body spiraled out of control. Everything fit differently, I lost my waist, and the jeans I grabbed out of my closet wouldn’t even button.

 

Can you believe this happened to someone consistently eating the Trim Healthy plan and exercising?

 

So, you might ask, if it can happen to you is there any hope for me?

 

The answer is yes!

 

Midlife weight gain and its stubbornness have less to do with eating perfectly and exercising daily than you might think. 

 

In fact, if you’re in your forties or above, there is a whole bunch of evidence pointing to your hormones being the root cause of extra fat around your belly than anything else.

 

Weight gain in midlife is not inevitable. 

 

But what you’ve been doing to lose weight in your twenties and thirties won’t work anymore!

Transformation. We toss this term around, but do we truly grasp its depth and power? 

 

Today, let's dive into the amazing process of transformation, particularly in the context of menopause. 

 

When you start on a transformation journey, whether it's a quest for weight loss, a newfound exercise routine, or the journey through menopause, our initial expectation often leans towards immediacy. We anticipate swift results, envisioning a rapid metamorphosis. However, real transformation is a patient artist, painting its masterpiece over time. It thrives on consistency, repetition, and the commitment to small, incremental improvements. This is where the magic lies and this is the long game we need to embrace.
