Weight loss is still the number one goal of most people who are trying to get back in shape or starting a new fitness program. 40 Plus and Fit wants to share a story and solution from my good friend, Sarah Noel Northwood.
“I have had my struggles with my weight most of my life, but three years ago, I had a health crisis. I have six children, hypothyroidism, and I was postmenopausal. I knew I had to find a predictable way to lose weight when my endocrinologist told me I was diabetic.
Because I was facing foot surgery, I knew I couldn’t exercise my way to my healthy BMI, so my doctor referred me to the nutritionist at the hospital. She told me that I needed to begin eating six small meals a day – something high-protein, low-carb. I felt so overwhelmed that I cried. As a busy homeschool mom, I felt challenged by preparing even one meal a day, much less SIX! Soon after, my physical therapist told me she was a health coach and she was certain she could help me.
After eight months with her encouragement to learn and install the habits of health, I was able to lose 60 pounds! My blood sugar was in the normal range and I lowered my cholesterol by 100 points. I never want to go back! My life is so much better, now. I have lots of energy, which I’m thankful for when I am ruining after my little grandchildren! Now I can run after them instead of watching them from my chair. I have more energy, more peace of mind, and more confidence.
So many of my family and friends saw the difference in my life. They said, “What’s your secret? “I decided to become a health coach so that I could share this hope and health with everyone who is ready to begin to not only achieve and maintain a healthy BMI, but to achieve lifelong transformation, one healthy habit at a time. I’ve gained the victory and I can walk alongside of you while you do, too! How long are you going to wait to do this for yourself and for those you love?
