“Why can’t I lose weight?” is a question you have probably asked yourself at some point. I know I did.
I was stuck in a cycle of a ton of exercise, dieting and not being able to lose weight, particularly around my midsection.
At age 49 I went on a transformation journey and horribly failed because I was doing all the wrong things and it was pretty soul destroying because I was working so hard but not seeing the results I wanted.
I often looked at myself in the mirror and thought ‘I don’t like what I see’. I felt bad about myself as I concluded it was ‘my fault’ that I had belly fat.
Trainers told me that I would NEVER get in the shape I desired because of my age. This is because they didn’t understand how a menopausal woman’s body works.
There can be a number of reasons why you can’t lose weight or I like to say fat rather than weight:
Commonly these can be not eating enough protein, lack of sleep, stress, not doing enough strength training, too much cardio (yes you can do too much I did this), not enough female hormones like estrogen, a thyroid problem, but the list goes on.
Once you can understand how these things work together and come up with a program to maximize your chances of losing body fat you will see results, like I did.
One other thing that can be helpful if one of the reasons you can’t get in shape is you find it difficult to follow a plan consistently is having accountability.
