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 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. 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.
My boyfriend, Brian was over weight as well. We both needed to lose weight.
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 a few 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.
So Brian and I began to get educated on nutrition and to our surprise, we discovered something that worked for both of us.
We learned that everything we thought we knew about nutrition was all wrong! But right or wrong, I don’t care. I just know we are losing weight.
I wanted to help others do what brian and i did, So I created this website
I want to help other frustrated fifty and older women, do the same thing as me. Fat Loss At Fifty 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 Oct 2017:
I am now down to 140 pounds and have been able to maintain that weight for over 3 years and I’m feeling great and loving life.
When I look at this image of Brian and I compared to how we looked prior, it is almost shocking to me. I don’t even recognize myself.
This healthy lifestyle has literally change our life. Brian is medication free and actually reversed his diabetes. I sincerely hope this blog inspires and motivates you to lose your weight and get healthy and stay healthy for life!
If you are doing keto and getting amazing results I would love if you would share your story with me and my readers.
I wanted to share with you what has been going on with me the past few years.
After losing my weight, I wanted to help others do the same. So I began working as a weight loss counselor at Trimline weight loss Centers in York, PA September of 2017. I love helping people learn about nutrition and get healthy.
My journey continues as Brian and I will be getting married and moving to Florida! I have decided I wanted to take my love for helping others to the next level by working as a certified health coach and counselor. I am excited to see where my new venture takes me.
We did it! We tied the knot and moved to Florida. I am excited to start this new venture as a Weight Loss Counselor and Health Tudor.
If I can lose weight and keep it off so can you. It really is about putting yourself first and making a lifestyle change.
