Hello – I hope it’s okay to start a new post. I’m starting this today and could really do with help and encouragement!
I’m 46, female, otherwise fit and healthy but carrying at least a stone in excess weight for almost 8 years now since the burst of my second child. I have a family history of T2DM and IHD so keen to do all I can to prevent ending up there too. I’m quite active and do Crossfit at least twice a week (although I’m always going to remain the class dunce as everyone else is way more advanced but that doesn’t bother me, as I really enjoy the varied movements) but I have a Full time stressful mainly desk job and young kids so temptations to eat unhealthily always there.
I thought I might try this, but am unsure if this works for middle aged women? I have seen a gradual thickening of my waist and thighs and the excess weight is now so much more stubborn than it used to be (I lost all the baby weight after my first child was born when I was 30 – I did weightwatchers and it worked a treat but doesn’t seem to work now) – Has 800 fast diet worked for women my age? Would anyone be happy to share stories to inspire me?
I will post my weight in a follow up post.
All responses much appreciated!
