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...

Has sleep been your friend or foe since you hit your perimenopause and menopause years? Maybe you’ve struggled since childhood, or maybe this is a whole new symptom that is messing with you.

 

I wish I had a magic pill that would give you a solid eight hours every night—shoot, if I did, I’d be the first in line to swallow it! But while you may not find answers right away, there are reasons why you need to keep trying to get more sleep in midlife and ways to support your body during this time.

 

Sleep can hold the key to not only feeling rejuvenated but also to weight management, hormonal balance, and overall well-being.



Why is Sleep Important?

Midlife introduces many challenges, including sleep, which is primarily driven by hormonal changes. As estrogen levels decline, sleep disturbances become more prevalent, leading to midnight awakenings, racing thoughts, and hormonal...

5 Fat-Burning Foods Proven To Get You Results

Apple Podcast - Spotify




One of the most common frustrations I hear from my fellow Trim Healthy Mamas in midlife is the increase in fat around their waist.

 

Today, I want to share the top 5 foods you can use in your everyday routine that are simple and effective at burning fat and creating an optimal environment for a better, healthier, and faster metabolism. 



Understanding Fat Loss:

But first, let's debunk a common myth right off the bat: you can't spot-reduce belly fat with endless crunches or planks. 

 

 

We can target fat loss through smart food choices, exercise, and lifestyle tweaks.

 

Our goal? Turning our bodies into fat-burning powerhouses.



1. Apple Cider Vinegar:

First up on our fat-burning food list is apple cider vinegar (ACV). Packed with acetic acid, ACV supports digestion and helps regulate blood sugar levels. By incorporating ACV into your routine, you can potentially reduce belly fat and...

Ultimate Guide to Muscle Building: Tips for Women Over 40

Apple Podcast - Spotify

 

I'm going to discuss the importance of building muscle as we age and its relationship to fat loss, overall metabolic health, and longevity.

I've been a personal trainer for over 30 years, and back in the day, there wasn't much emphasis on women and building muscle. There were guidelines, but it wasn't until I became certified as a menopause fitness specialist and discovered the newer science for women in midlife and beyond that I understood how important, if not the most important, things we can be doing.


Importance of Muscle Building

What I'm learning about muscle is that it is our longevity organ. When we start focusing on building muscle rather than losing weight, fat loss will happen.

Notice I'm not saying weight loss because we lose part muscle and part fat when we lose weight. Diets that are quick fixes or calorie deficit cause massive muscle loss touted as weight loss, and that, my friend, for women...

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...

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,...

 Trim Healthy Mama for Ladies Over 50

Menopause and midlife bring a unique set of challenges, and one of the most common and frustrating among them is the issue of weight gain. You're not alone in this struggle; many women like you are experiencing the same thing. But the good news is, I’m here to debunk some of the myths and provide you with effective solutions to help you navigate this transformative phase of life.

 

Myth Debunking

Menopause Isn't a Sudden Event

One common misconception is that menopause happens suddenly. All of a sudden, everything changes, right? Well, not exactly. Menopause is more of a gradual process, stretching over several years. It typically begins with perimenopause, which can start as early as your late 30s. So, if you're thinking everything happened suddenly, think again.
