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...

How to Stop Food Cravings During Menopause: Strategies to be Trim and Healthy

Are you a woman over 40 struggling with sugar cravings during menopause? 

You're not alone. 

Many women in this stage of life find themselves battling cravings, weight gain, and frustration with slow progress. 

But don’t get discouraged. In this post, we will explore game-changing strategies to help you gain better control over your eating habits and conquer those sugar cravings once and for all.


Why do I want junk food?

Menopause brings hormonal changes that mess with your body; these changes may cause increased sugar cravings and less willpower. 

They are often a result of your brain seeking a dopamine hit, which highly processed foods provide. The dopamine hit isn’t bad, and you can get it by eating fruits or walking. 

 

"The key is to realize that your thoughts are actually a part of the problem."

 

The good news is that you can change your...

What Happens When Hormones Go Crazy? Better Strategies For Women

Thriving Through Menopause

Challenges in menopause can feel like putting together a jigsaw puzzle with pieces missing. And figuring out what your body needs is often daunting and requires understanding and tailored strategies.  

 

Hormonal Challenges and Solutions

In menopause, our hormones, specifically estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, undergo significant changes. And one of the primary challenges women face in menopause is unexpected weight gain, particularly around the abdomen. Declining estrogen levels play a crucial role in fat storage, which affects body composition. However, new studies show that building muscle is a powerful tool in navigating this weight gain and boosting metabolism.

 "Estrogen helps regulate metabolism and body fat distribution and, believe it or not, muscle building."

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.

Let’s learn how to stop the crazy menopausal symptoms so you can feel good in midlife.

 

Today on the Honeycast I want to bring you good news. 

 

You can take a few very important steps and dial in the best ways to support your body. But first I want to acknowledge that the suffering is REAL. Hormonal changes and their accompanying symptoms are a part of life and are natural but it doesn’t mean you need to suffer or “get over it.” 

 

Even though your hormones are declining you can fix the symptoms that often come with those shifts. You can get the right nutrition and fuel, and you can exercise in a way that turns on fat-burning without tanking your adrenals.

 

Not everything I’m sharing with you here today is coming directly from Trim Healthy Mama or Pearl & Serene. Hours of personal research and research for clients as well...

Journey to Midlife Wellness: Challenges and Insights

It took me years to figure things out and can I just say, today’s way of dealing with menopause has not been very helpful to me. 

 

My goal is to make walking through this midlife season accessible and helpful to you. Especially if you are trying to lose weight instead of gain and the menopause hormonal symptoms are taking over your life. 

 

My desire is for you to show up well, be strong, and have hope. 

 

Your midlife can be a new beginning. 

 

Personal training and women’s health has been my passion for several years.

At first, when I started my Trim Healthy journey I wasn’t looking into hormones or anything like that. I just wanted to lose the last few pounds and stop the dieting roller coaster. I wanted to be healthy and feel better.
