“I’ve always been an active person, but one day I realized my weight got up to 270 lbs., and it was time to make some changes.  I kept thinking that in order to see results, I needed to stop overeating and start starving myself.   These bad habits were what we were taught to do in order to lose weight.  Like most women, I’ve been a Yo-Yo dieter and tried every type of weight loss support group out there.

 

In 1999, I had a revelation.  It was time to get healthy the right way.  I joined a gym and hired a personal trainer.  He taught me that I had to stop starving myself and start nourishing my body.  Carbs were no longer the enemy.  It was about making better food choices.  It took me a while to change my way of thinking, but I started feeding my body correctly.  Besides, I started liking this weight lifting thing we were doing.  I enjoyed pushing my body pretty hard.

 

Fast forward almost 20 years later and I’ve been working out and eating healthy foods pretty consistently.  I’m in my 60’s and workout harder than most men and women in the gym twenty years younger than me.  I’m not afraid to treat myself to foods I enjoy, (like a Clyde’s donut or two) but I make it a priority to fuel my body with nourishing foods so I can work hard in the gym and feel great.  I don’t know what I weigh, but I don’t care because I look great and feel great.  Everything these days is coming from a feeling of true health.”
