“i should still weigh the same as when i was 25”

I hear this A LOT when first meeting with women who inquire about working with me. And this right here – we nip that in the bud real quick. But really, have you felt this way? Have you ever caught yourself thinking and saying,

I should weigh what I weighed:
in college…
before 1 kid…
before 2 kids…
when I got married…
when I got that work promotion…
before I got that work promotion…

Oh, please! Are you the same person now that you were then?

The reality is: your body is different now. This is particularly true if you’ve been pregnant. It’s definitely true if you’re in perimenopause or beyond! And that’s okay.

Accepting your body for what it is and focusing on the good it does for you is a powerful mindset shift. Improving your mental wellness is more important to your overall health than your jeans size.

Also, just because your body has changed size and shape doesn’t make you any less worthy of improving your fitness and health now. You can always make your body healthier, even if it doesn’t affect your weight. Work with the body you have, not the one you want.

You’ll be surprised when you choose the right exercise for you, you’ll have more energy and a positive outlook. And you’ll be more likely to see the results you want in the mirror, too.
