What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I started gaining weight in my early 40's even though I hadn't changed my healthy habits. I researched and tweaked what I was doing and came up with my Today is Still the Day plan. My mother passed away at 64. She never saw me get married and never met her grandchildren. Now, 20 years after creating this plan I am a grandmother and enjoying every minute of my life. I want all women, of any age, to look and feel their best and be able to enjoy every stage of their lives, vibrant, healthy and full of energy.
There are myriad reasons why any one person, man or woman, might be struggling with weight loss. There are obvious reasons such as lack of activity, eating too many processed foods, or just eating too much in general. There can be hormonal issues, food intolerances or allergies, interactions with medications and digestive issues. However, that's not all.
As a woman I deal primarily with women, and I see something at work in women of all ages. I have a daughter in her 20's and daughters-in-law in their early 30's. I see them dealing with the stresses of beginning a career, navigating relationships, planning weddings, buying a home, starting a family and dealing with newborns. Just listing all those things stresses me out! And I've been through it all.
Many are working more than one job or working a full time job and either going to school to finish a degree part time or working a side job. That means often they are rushing from one job to another and usually healthy eating falls by the wayside. Often they are burning the candle at both ends to just get it all done and sleep suffers. Where do they fit in time to exercise? And who has the energy?
Then you have women in their 40's and beyond. While their children may be grown and out of the house, that doesn't mean they are not impacted by whatever is going on in their children's lives. I can personally attest to that. I heard someone say once that a mother is only as happy as her unhappiest child, and that is so true. If one of my children is going through a difficult time, it is as if it is happening to me.
Many women at this time are either re-entering the work force now that children are gone, or are considering making a change, starting a side business, or going part-time. They may be adjusting to a spouse's retirement. They may be experiencing financial crises with these changes. They may also have become caretakers for elderly or ailing parents or relatives. Many have 20-something children who had to return home and that creates unique stresses all its own.
None of these things is easy and none of them are conducive to weight loss, much less health and peace. We don't often realize how powerfully stress, anxiety, and lack of peace affect our ability to not only be truly healthy, but also to be able to lose excess weight as well as to maintain a healthy weight.
Life is not necessarily easy or smooth all the time – for men or women. We know this. As women we are usually the peacemakers, caretakers, comforters, nurturers, encouragers and support systems for our spouses and families, and this is a huge privilege as well as responsibility. It is nothing new, however. Just read Proverbs 31 and you see this is how God created us as women.
If you see yourself in one of these descriptions and you are struggling to lose weight and find balance in your life, I want to encourage you. Thankfully we go through different seasons in life. For moms with small children, know that this season will go by much more quickly than it seems to when you are in the midst of it. All my coaching addresses spirit, soul and body because health is more than the absence of illness or a certain number on the scale – it is wholeness. It begins, particularly for women, in putting yourself on the list.
