how to lose weight fast over 50

    Thanks for including well being in your approach to beauty and fashion, Beth. I’m sure more than one of us has purchased something to grow into – grin.

    Portion size , eating out, exercise – we all know, but. I have been trying to loose 10 lbs – forever! Did it once on a ‘diet,’ but of course fell off the wagon. I finally have lost the weight – portion size, exercise and not eating out. Silver lining to Covid. I lost interest in food, started spending more time in my flower gardens and walking and only ordering take out from time to time to support the local restaurants. I still love my daily wine/cocktail and I still eat pumpkin pies, etc., but food doesn’t haunt me anymore, and I feel way more at peace with it and my body size.
    Hope this helps fellow strugglers – health is the best jewelry 🎁

      “Health is the best jewelry” —
      PERFECT! Andrea, I am going to print your quote and put it on my refrigerator.
      Happy Halloween everyone and thank you Beth for trying to help us be healthy.
      Take care

      Thanks for sharing! But I will emphasize that proper nutrition is what fuels our bodies and brains. If we want to live a vibrant and healthy life it centers around food – nutritious food, not the scale.

        Sorry if nutrition got lost in translation, Beth. I definitely didn’t mean to put the scale front and Center, The only reason I mentioned it, was for those of us who have struggled with weight loss. I have noticed a huge difference in my psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. My knees are happier and my outlook is lighter. My body gives me little jabs when I ignore my weight. I’m not thin, I’m a size 12. I have lung issues and arthritis, so keeping within a healthy weight range, for me, means I can maintain an active lifestyle – again as you say – emphasis on Health.

        • Beth Djalali says:

          so many women of my generation and my mothers were so focused on the scale. i just like to mention health and nutrition every chance i get. healthy choices help
          auto-immune diseases like psoriatic arthritis. and, yes, our joints thank us when our bodies are lighter.

    Since retiring at 57 I weigh almost 10 pounds less at age 70 than I did when working. How? The office snacks of cheese, candy, pizza, etc. were hard to say no to! I’ve never dieted, but I think my meal planning 2 weeks at a time has helped. Do I still eat pizza, chocolate, etc., of course, but always in moderation and balance. I get weighed once every couple of weeks, and I allow myself a 1-2 pound weight swing. If it hits that 1-2 pound swing, I make sure the meal planning for the next few days keeps me where I want to be. For me at least, a strict diet plan would be too difficult to sustain. Balanced eating and portion control has allowed me to maintain a healthy weight for all these years. Three square meals a day with no snacking keeps me sustained.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      I would just add that it’s the type of food we’re consuming. Of course, we want to keep a healthy weight. But our generation was obsessed with the scale instead of what we were feeding our bodies and brains. Nutrition is of utmost importance to living a vibrant and healthy life. A calorie is not just a calorie. Calories from spinach are much different than calories from candy. It seems like such a simple concept but food and more specifically the wrong type of food is the real culprit behind many 21st-century diseases.

    there is no price tag when it comes to health. there is no monthly fee that’s an option if you want to continue as a VIP. but $199 for six weeks of one-on-one counseling,
    meal plans, workout routines, and learning how to eat nutritiously for the rest of your life is a bargain.
