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.

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.

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...

Life often brings disappointments, and today, I'm sharing my personal experience, particularly in the context of my health journey and recent Masterclass training.

What does it take to be successful in reaching your goals?

 

I want to share with you what my most successful clients have in common and how they overcome common pitfalls to achieve success in their Trim Healthy Mama journey. 

 

  • Make a quality commitment to adopt the plan as a lifestyle. Not a perfect commitment, but an “I am in” day in and day out because they were done with dieting. Done with the mental drama. Create a vision and a “why” for showing up in a healthy way every day.
