“no matter what I do, I can’t seem to lose weight.”

When women apply to work with me, they all write this same sentence on my intake form: “No matter what I do, I can’t seem to lose weight.”

Over the years, I’ve compiled a list of strategies to help these women get started and I wanted to share the same steps with all of you!

Nudge #1. Have a plan and be adaptable.Schedule a few minutes each day to move. Be realistic. What can you do every day for all of the days? Is it 5 minutes? 20? 1-2? No matter what, set a realistic time each day and just move.

Nudge #2. Recover properly.Most times my clients are weight resistance because they are highly STRESSED. I won’t get into the biochemistry of why this happens, but trust me, it does. I see it all the time. Recovery is tuning into the messages your body sends you. Push when you can, rest when you can’t.

Nudge #3. Something is better than nothing.Give yourself grace. Forward progress not perfection. Doing 1 minute of exercise is better than doing none. Often, the act of movement is enough to get you out of the funk. So, lose the “all-or-nothing” mentality and just do something, no matter how small.

Nudge #4. Prioritize strength trainingAs we age both our strength and our power output start to decrease. But it doesn’t have to be this way as long as you start incorporating load-bearing exercises into your life!

Strength training increases your metabolism, releases those feel-good endorphins, and develops better body mechanics. Good body mechanics matter as we get older due to the risk of falling and injury.
