This awesome question came in from iVillage Challenge member ….
“As someone over 50 needing to lose weight, do you have specific suggestions for a diet and exercise plan?”
HELLOOOO iV Challenge Member ! … I am just weeks away from joining you in that 50 club! And I can testify that the 50’s can be the strongest years of a person’s life! And the BEST news is that no matter how de-conditioned … or what age … you CAN bring the body back … back to better health …. back to a better weight!
It’s so great that you want to! I worry for those that say … “Well it’s age … gettin’ old … can’t do anything about my weight or my aches and pains!!!!” THAT DRIVES ME NUTS!!!! We have the power at any time in life to improve and change our bodies, our minds and our souls!!!!
My suggestion is to get started walking – even before you think about your foods – this challenge is a fantastic way to have a plan! You don’t have to walk the full sessions each day … even a few minutes a day will build endurance … you’ll feel better and better … you’ll naturally want to do more … and all of a sudden … POW …. your pants don’t fit! They are loose … you are bursting with energy …. that’s just a little of what “walking” can do …. there’s so much more! I hope you’ll start your walk journey right now!
God Bless my friend … you are in a great time of life to make “walking” your sport for life!
