FIT 2016

I'm already pretty active but I decided this year I will be extra fit. I'm 40 now and it's hard to keep and maintain good weight. Any tips I can follow?

Don't worry so much about weight! When it comes to fitness weight is not as heavily related as people think.

Careful scientific studies have shown that even fatties like me can be much healthier than thin people who don't exercise by getting some exercise and taking in good nutrients.

So my advice would be just to get any form of exercise and eat well and be happy :)

I agree with wonderwhatif. We should focus on improving our overall health and eliminating bad habits. The weight is secondary and as we age, we should accept that our bodies will not look the way they once did in our 20's. It's unrealistic because our hormones are changing and most of us don't have personal trainers like all the celebrities do.

How about starting a health journal where you keep track of new healthy habits, like eliminating sugary treats or reducing salt intake? That way you'll have a specific goal to work on. Just make sure you combine it with a plan on how you'll go about with the change.

Good luck!

Try watching Josie Mai on YouTube or on instagram. She has motivated me to change the way I work out and eat. Let me know what you think of her.

The journal thing is a great idea! I think I'll do that. I struggle to incorporate new foods into my diet as I suffer from ARFID, so I'll try to use your journal idea to focus on new ones one at a time. Thanks prettyrainbow!

Shucks thanks! Also consider Yoga if you don't as a great way to increase your flexibility, though some people prefer tai chi! Gentle exercise is better as you age and you increase your risk of bone and joint problems!

Also for those plus size gals like me out there, despite everyone's opinion it's CRUCIAL that you don't overdo it. Exercising too heavily puts too much strain from the weight on your knees and hips and can lead to lifelong injury. Consult a fat friendly doctor before starting exercise, or start gently and at a comfortable pace.

Don't be too hard on yourself...

I'm on many Beachbody Program FB groups, as I've been doing the programs since October 2014.

I see WAY too many ladies panic and complain that they ate something they "shouldn't" of, wonder why they weren't losing weight as quickly as the 20 year olds, and are just WAY too hard on themselves.

I like eating, and am not going to panic about a "cheat" moment. I've also maintained my weight and haven't had to upsize my pants since I've started. But I could probably also kick some behind with my strength.

I could probably cut out more carbs and actually follow the eating plans, but I hate planning what I'll be in the mood to eat for dinner.

Just start with healthy habits, and don't stress about the times you aren't so healthy.

I'm 37, and happy with maintaining while on this fun adventure of life.
