Losing weight - it's a life change
I am a woman over the age of 40 (barely) and struggling with the belly fat. As sad as it is to write, I realize that I am over 40 but my body doesn't have to be! I have great legs and other parts, however, I am seriously concerned over my belly bulge. I workout 5 days a week, I eat healthy and do stray from time to time but come on, why do I have this belly? So if you are short or tall, young or old, it's time to make life changes to be fit and healthy to live a long life.
Lose The Belly Fat!
We need to eat right! Here is some help!
I look at these young girls with the "muffin tops" and I am stressing that I have a belly. These girls I see aren't ashamed to show the muffin top all over the place and I am 40 and wear loose shirts to hide it! I think something might be wrong with me since I am more confident and understand my body but can't for the life of me figure out what is going on. I have read every diet book known to mankind and still can't get my belly fat under control! The only way to help with the muffin top is to eat fish and veggies. Got to cut out the carbs people!
Is it the environment, because I don't remember ever having a "muffin top" or pregnant belly when I was growing up. In fact, the only time I sit is to work or write, but outside of that, I stay on my feet. So am I too old to be too fit? These are thoughts the bug my mind at night, the brain waves pumping like crazy to figure out what I am doing wrong because I am not losing this extra belly weight. I don't want the belly fat but I am lucky, I guess that I don't have the muffin top. However, through time and research, I have learned to eat right and when I splurge then I must pay the price, which is the extra belly fat. The key that I have learned is eating healthy and we all know what that is but buy a fit bit, it helps with making sure you get your steps in and counting calories. It helps a lot!
So all you pretty, attractive, confident women out there, start now, splurge a little, not a lot. Fight against the times of eating fast food and workout to stay healthy. Eat fruits and veggies, fish and lean meats. Exercise 5 times a week, make the changes now. Because when you turn 40, you won't have the belly that I have because you started younger and worked hard to eat right and exercise, because that is what it comes down to. Forget the diet pills and the fad diets, eat right and exercise, that is what it takes.
There are so much helpful tips online and within books. Right now I am reading "Bust the Sugar Out!" By Dr. Ian K. Smith. Easy book about eliminating carbs in your diet and even hidden carbs we don't even know we consume. So try this book if you want something easy to follow and have a 5 week plan. Good luck and be strict, it will be worth it!
