Hi There! My name is Wendy and I am a woman in my early 50’s. I am a happy person who has been blessed with a wonderful family. I am happy with every part of my life and live my life to the fullest.
I am very fortunate to have my health as well. I have great blood pressure, and my health, in general, is great for a woman my age. However, I am considered obese and am at a high risk for a heart attack or diabetes, especially since both illnesses run in my family.
I’ve struggled with my weight my entire life. But since my numbers were always good, I never really worried about it. But now, in my 50’s I realize that it is the time I get my weight under control.
But losing the weight isn’t so simple these days. What I discovered is that what used to work in my younger years to drop pounds doesn’t work with my 52-year-old body. No matter how much I worked out, counted calories, and cut fat, I just couldn’t drop any weight
I realized it is way harder for older women than it is for younger women to lose weight. But to my surprise, I discovered something that worked for me, and that is a High Fat, Low Carbohydrate Diet. In other words, everything I learned over the years was wrong! But right or wrong, I don’t care. I just know I’m losing weight.
So this is why I created this website. I want to help other frustrated 50ish women, do the same thing as me. This site is more of a blog for me, so I can document what I am learning as I drop pounds. I’m hoping that my results will inspire others as well. So feel free to follow along and even leave some comments. I would love to hear from you!
Update: I am now down to 135 pounds and I’m feeling great and loving life. With that said, I wanted to take a moment to let my readers know that I will no longer be able to keep posting as I simply don’t have the time as I have a lot (good stuff) going on in my life. As it is, I haven’t posted since August of last year.
I thought about taking my site down, but I felt it was better to leave it up in the hopes of helping others.
I wish you all the best.
