Let's go ahead and address the elephant in the room and give you the master key on how to lose weight and keep it off: commitment.

 

How to Lose Weight and Keep it Off

It's a commitment to yourself, not to the scale, because the number one thing that keeps women from attaining their goals is that they quit.

 

I'm going to be talking about something that I see happening with the majority of the clients that I work with. And I've had some run-ins with this particular topic myself, and it really is about commitment. Now, there are a lot of other factors that play into weight loss, so we can't just rely on commitment alone without understanding those factors.

 

Even if you are committed, and maybe, just maybe, it's still not working, when you were committed, you stayed until the end and figured it out. When you're not truly committed, you quit, and then you end up...

I am so excited to introduce you to Debbie Martin, a friend and fellow Trim Healthy coach.

 

 She is here today to talk to us about her Trim Healthy and weight loss journey after 50 and with insulin resistance.  

 

I can't wait to get to all of the good things. First, Debbie will tell us how she stumbled onto the Trim Healthy Way.  

 

"My name is Debbie Martin. I'm 50 years old. I turned 50 last year and feel so good about it. I am so excited about being 50. I am a mom of five kids. They're not kids anymore; they're all grown, and I've been a wife for 30 years.

 

I have had trouble with my weight throughout my whole life, and I came across trim healthy way back; I don't remember the exact year, but it was early. I didn't stick with it because I stalled and tried other things, came back to trim healthy, and didn't stick with it again because...

9 Eye-Opening Tips To Lose Weight After 40 Simplified

Why is it so hard to lose weight for women after 40? 

 

There's a ton of factors contributing to this frustration, and it's important to understand what’s going on. The main culprits behind the challenge of weight loss after 40 come from various sources. 

Firstly, our metabolism undergoes changes as we age, impacting how efficiently our bodies burn calories. Additionally, hormonal fluctuations, including the decline in hormones like estrogen, directly influence our metabolism and can lead to insulin resistance and fat accumulation. Lifestyle habits also play a significant role, with factors such as inadequate sleep, dehydration, and unmanaged stress all contributing to slower weight loss. 

 

Despite these challenges, it's important to remember that successful weight loss after 40 is achievable.

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.

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.

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...

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.
