I worked with a client on and off for years. Let’s call her Sally.
Sally was very overweight and out of shape when she came to me, and over the course of a year, lost a lot of weight, made incredible progress with her strength, and had more confidence in her 50s than she ever did in her 30s and 40s.
But life happened and she got off track. She gained all the weight back and ended up feeling bad about herself. She tried to get back on it, but ultimately settled on just taking some time to do things on her own.
But here’s the deal. Sally is now in her late 50s, at her heaviest, and a new grandmother.
Sally had time to fluctuate and be hit or miss with her health efforts. We all do when we are younger. But now that she’s over 55, she’s playing a game with her life.
There is no more time to wait, to try to do it on her own, to be half-committed. It’s not a confidence issue anymore – it’s life or death. But Sally just can’t see it that way because she’s used to having time.
I’m sharing this story with you today because it’s a VERY common one.
We remember how things were and don’t realise our bodies are no longer capable of handling what they once were.
