Many people worry that they are too old to lose weight. Their health might be suffering and even a slight drop in weight can make a huge difference but they argue that "you can't teach an old dog new tricks." I have had patients in my practice and members of my online program succeed at losing weight even when they're in their sixties and seventies because they finally got the right information to lose the weight.
If diets have failed you in the past, you probably haven't had the right information. Diets alone don't work. What works is understanding emotional eating. Emotionally eating means all the aspects of using food for comfort, reward or as a form of self-medication.
People worry that their overeating pattern is so ingrained that it can never be changed. People worry that if they do lose the weight that their skin will hang and the world will know that they were once fat. People worry that they just won’t be able to bear another failure.
It is NEVER too late.
In the best stories, in the eleventh hour someone shows up and no matter how many times they failed before, we cheer. It’s just that the person you’re waiting to show up for you, is you.
It’s NEVER too late to show up for yourself. With the right information you can lose the weight.
