Do you know the #1 needle mover exercise for weight loss in midlife?
Are you ready to feel good again?
A winning and abundant mindset is your key.
Your mindset is like the railroad tracks laid down for the train to ride on and when you’ve got the railroad tracks you can just truck right along. Not without obstacles but you’ve got a path.
Let’s talk today about a mindset of consistency over perfection with the Trim Healthy Mama plan.
What mindset are you cultivating? An abundant mindset looks for possibility. It is a mindset that is pointed in the direction of believing and asking “What if this is possible?”
What you believe, you will create. If you believe you have to be...

Back in 2012 a couple of my “besties,” Serene and Pearl, searched for answers to sustainable weight loss for women. As they figured out the best ways to fuel with foods for fat loss, I joined their plan and together we lost weight and regained our health.
The plan (Trim Healthy Mama) they laid out for weight loss is excellent and works for women of all ages but as I’ve moved into my midlife years I’ve learned to make a few tweaks to the basic Trim Healthy plan to make weight loss easier with hormonal changes.
A key concept we often overlook in midlife is to eat plenty of protein. Protein is a key pillar of the Trim Healthy plan and continues to be of utmost importance through your...
Midlife can bring about a host of challenges, but perhaps one of the most pervasive is the struggle with weight. With age, our metabolism slows down, and the routines we've stuck with for decades might not serve us anymore. But the journey to health isn’t just about the physical. It’s a mental challenge. If you’ve been lying to yourself about why can't lose weight or why Trim Healthy Mama won't work for you, now is the time to change your narrative. Let's dive into how you can cultivate a mindset for weight loss in midlife, one that is honest, encouraging, and transformative.
Sometimes, the biggest lies we tell are the ones we tell ourselves. These lies might include:
"I'm too old to change."
"This is just how my body is now."
"I've tried everything; nothing works for...
Menopause is an important season in a woman's life, often marked by drastic changes in the body and mind.
But, embracing a sustainable lifestyle, such as the Trim Healthy Mama (THM) plan, can turn these challenging years into a time of self-discovery, empowerment, and vibrant health.
Let’s uncover nuggets of wisdom from a recent roundtable interview, where women in the menopausal season shared their transformative journeys with the Feminine Freedom Pathway (FFP), a 6-month weight loss coaching program.
Danielle thought her struggle was not doing "enough." But over the course of her 6-month journey, she discovered the importance of self-compassion. Now she understands and uses the power of embracing...
Hello dear friends, today I have a story that will inspire you, motivate you, and fill you with the kind of warmth that only a group of dedicated, determined, and supportive ladies can bring. Let's dive into the incredible journey of a group of women who call themselves the 'Freedom Sisters'.
These remarkable ladies are graduates of my Feminine Freedom Pathway program, a long-term coaching plan aimed at helping women in midlife lose weight, learn to exercise, manage their hormones, and ultimately find their best midlife selves.
But the Freedom Sisters are more than just participants; they have built an inspiring community of support and encouragement.
Why are they so special?
The Freedom Sisters were my very first group when I launched the program. They have stuck together through thick and thin, experiencing victories, struggles,...
I'm not going to change.
I'm not going to change the commitment I've made to myself.
That's exactly what Coach Kelly Rackley told herself all year long.
With one quick, impulsive decision, she committed to eating 100% on the Trim Healthy Mama plan for 365 days.
The trajectory of her entire year took on a new look as she walked out this commitment day after day. And in the end, she learned more about herself and what eating Trim Healthy Mama really means.
The ability to stay on the Trim Healthy plan has much more to do with how you talk to yourself than you might think. Kelly found this out with each passing day. Focusing her energy on solving her problems and pushing through the temptation rather than feeling deprived or sorry for herself took time and effort.
She had to coach herself.
"I literally truth...
Is exercise in midlife really all that important?
Would you rather be doing just about anything other than exercising?
After all, the extra time and an open schedule can be challenging.
I get it.
Getting older has loads of great benefits, but choosing not to include exercise and include daily movement in your schedule may set you up for health issues that are better avoided.
Exercise in midlife is necessary for longevity, health and will help you build strong muscles to maintain your independence as you age.
And as added benefit doing the proper exercise gets your body in metabolism-boosting & fat-burning mode fast.
I have great news for you and some myths to bust.

Impossible goals are. the. worst.
And Anne felt like her health and weight loss goals were…impossible.
She couldn't stick to the Trim Healthy Mama plan long enough to get traction. So…how was she supposed to find success in health and weight loss?
Hopeless and feeling like she was shoveling snow in a blizzard (she would know, she lives in Canada) - Anne kept trying. Eating on plan but falling off as soon as "life" happened.
"I did not believe I would be able to find success for my health and weight loss. It seemed completely unmanageable." - Anne
One day, she reached out to me after a mutual friend recommended Feminine Freedom Path, my 6-month Coaching program.
Her hormone and weight loss struggles made her a great candidate for Feminine Freedom Path. Years of blaming and shaming her lack of commitment...
Why is it so hard to be consistent?
Starting is easy.
Starting is exciting and new and fresh and so full of hope and possibility.
But doing what it takes to reach the end. Now that can be a real slog.
Starting your Trim Healthy journey is fun! There are so many good recipes to try and new things to learn.
But then, to see success, you have to keep at these changes until they are a habit. Part of your lifestyle.
So, I want to share with you what my most successful clients have in common and how they have overcome pitfalls and have learned to be successful on their Trim Healthy journey.
Hormones play a large part of fat loss and I'm not just talking about estrogen, progesterone, testosterone or DHEA. I'm talking about all your hormones, but especially insulin, cortisol, thyroid, and estrogen. Those four hormones are really mack daddy hormones that contribute to weight loss.
The great thing about the Trim Healthy Mama plan is that everything that it stands for and all of the concepts the plan is based on help us with regulating blood sugar. There are some things though that need to change in our 40-plus season. These are the steps that we focus on in the Feminine Freedom path. Making these changes takes time and you might be frustrated with where you are right now. But if you can apply these principles, and you're consistent, then you can start shrinking fat cells, and you can see results. So I just want you to put on your patience.
The Trim Healthy Mama plan is our foundation, staying on plan is key but we tweak it for our...
