Midlife Weight Loss

Is there such a thing as midlife weight loss? Short answer, yes! For the longer answer, listen to this conversation with Dr. Ginny TrierweilerShe is a psychologist and certified health coach who scoured the research to find evidence-based answers to her own eating and weight issues. She discovered key principles to actually NOURISH the body so you can activate health and healing from within and naturally release the excess weight. 

She combines that crazy-effective eating approach with habit change expertise to help other smart women over 40 get wonderful results.  It becomes easy and effortless once you come to CRAVE the good foods.  Smart, mature women deserve to live our best life.  And the world needs us!


There’s More to Life than Weight

I don’t know about you but speaking of weight and weight loss and frankly, most anything appearance related, brings up a lot for me. I have a lot of memories of me starting new ways of eating or exercising with such fierce commitment only to beat myself up in a not-so-nice way days, weeks or months later. 

I also resist speaking of weight loss and weight loss techniques because I have found that the more we, as women, think there’s a problem, the more of a problem there is. And yet, things change in midlife and I am at my core a wellness coach and want women to live in ways that are supportive for them and their best wellness, no matter what that is. 

Societal Programming with Weight Loss

And so today, let’s talk about weight. Let’s talk about societal programming. Let’s talk about helpful and unhelpful things we’ve done and can do. And mostly, let’s stop the old way of doing things and really commit this year to a new way, a lighter way of thinking of our weight and eating that really works.

Now don’t get me wrong, this isn’t about thinking that now we need to do it Dr. Treirweiler’s way (because that’s just doing more of the same – diet hopping, as we say). Rather, listen in to the overall mindset shift that both of us have had that makes the fundamental difference. And then decide what’s right for you.
