My journey started when we got a retirement home in Florida and I felt like a jealous teenager…

After years of marriage and having kids, I never thought at nearly 60 I’d be worrying about my husband leaving me. But it was the best thing that could have happened!

My Mom once said:

“After having kids your body will never be the same”

She was trying to scare me off boys, but those words stuck with me for the next 50 years!

As soon as I had kids, there was my excuse why I struggled keeping the pounds off. I never blamed all the chocolate, soda and fried chicken I enjoyed daily.

And every time I tried:

✔️ Exercise
✔️ Cutting out sugar
✔️ Boiled eggs for breakfast
Only having healthy, whole ingredients
I saw the scale hardly move week after week, so I remembered what my mother had said and went back to eating meals I like.

I was doomed to be overweight for the rest of my life!

The cold Minnesota winters made it easier to ignore my weight, but the warmer summers made me want to change.

I consulted several doctors and found out I had high blood pressure and cholesterol. But these were from being over weight, not causing the excessive pounds to pile on.

All the tests felt like a waste of money when one doctor told me “that’s what happens when you get older”.

No matter how many more excuses I heard, I never stopped feeling miserable and depressed.

In Minnesota I looked after our home while my husband was busy working.

We didn’t have much of a social life except he had a lot of work events to attend.

It all changed in Florida and his new found free time and zest for life!

He knew a lot of old work colleagues that had retired in the area too. Everyday he met up with them, enjoying the beaches, but for me it was too mortifying to even think of wearing a bikini.

I couldn’t even relax around our little private pool, what would my husband think when he got home?

How he’d compare what his wife was like to all the other women around Florida that were half my size.

I was feeling hopeless until I was told about a ‘Simple Morning Routine’.

It dealt with something in the body but I don’t remember it’s name. I’d never heard of it and to be honest I didn’t care what it was, I wanted to know what it did!

Could it fixed all my problems?

This isn’t the retirement I dreamt of…

Surrounded by golden beaches that I can’t enjoy.

Sat at home alone each day, struck with jealousy because I refused to join him and his friends.

Up to then all I knew was failed diets, useless doctors advice, feeling depressed and hopeless.

But then it was like a switch had been flicked. My weight began to melt away once I started implementing this daily routine.

I even dared to see a doctor again and found out it had reduced my blood pressure and cholesterol down!

I wasted so much of my life believing the wrong things. Until finding out weight gain is not related to:

🔘 How much high intensity exercises or cardio you do…

🔘 How many diets you go on, cutting out your favorite foods…
🔘 Missing out on the best snacks…
🔘 Not eating after a certain time and feeling hungry at night…
🔘 Fasting…
🔘 Or even genes or aging (thanks doctor for that lie!)

I know my Mom didn’t realize the lasting effect of what she said to me, but the doctors are a different story! It’s like they want you to feel you’re broken, that it’s your fault!

But I can now finally say, it’s not!
This ‘Simple Morning Routine’ changed everything for me.

✔️ My cravings disappeared

✔️ I Sleep all the way through the night
✔️ Started eating all my favorite foods with no guilt
✔️ Proved my Mom wrong and saw my “baby bump” shrink into a once again flat tummy
✔️ Totally new wardrobe – except a couple of things I’d kept from my 20’s that I can actually fit in again!!!
✔️ And of course lots of bikinis 🙂

You have to do something every day to stay healthy.

The choice is:
1 – Waste hours a day worrying about what food you should be eating and how much you should exercise.

2 – Do this morning routine.

Of course I picked option “2” and I am so passionate about sharing this with everyone.

I want to see other people start their own amazing transformation!

Being in my 60’s I’m now feeling younger than ever!

No longer stuck at home, overridden with jealousy.

I can finally enjoy the beautiful beaches and days out with my husband and all our friends.

But on the odd occasion I do choose to stay at home, this is how he finds me when he gets back…

he happiest I can ever remember being 🙂
