We’re Not Dead! We’ve Just Moved


I am here to inform you of some very sad, yet very exciting and important news.

As you have probably noticed, if you were a regular reader of Fit Over 40, there haven’t been many posts in a number of months. A series of changes have taken place…no I didn’t grow any new hair (I WISH!!!) This has caused us to focus on expanding our capabilities.

After almost two years of blogging, we have just simply outgrown our old site.  So we stepped away from the keyboard, packed our stuff and successfully decided to make a move.

No worries, it’s the same blog — just new and improved. The new location offers much more room for expansion  as we continue to grow. The only things that have changed are our new name and our new address. 

Please bookmark our new address at:

Have you decided on what your New Year’s Resolutions will be yet?  Most people I know have thought of some way to keep themselves fit in 2009.  The problem is that they never really specifically plan out what needs to be done.

The unfortunate result is that they never accomplish these resolutions.

The major reason is that their plan lacks a compelling reason WHY they want to keep themselves fit. (more…)

Finally, the FDA has come out with some warnings related to some of the “natural” fat busting” crap that’s being sold in your local diet pill store.

They are warning you to stay as far away as possible from nearly 30 weight-loss products containing unlisted and possibly dangerous ingredients.

According to Dr. Janet Woodcock, director of the FDA’s drug evaluation center, she states; “these tainted weight loss products pose a great risk to public health because they contain undeclared ingredients and in some cases prescription drugs in amounts that greatly exceed their maximum recommended dosages.”

Want to hear something even scarier?  (more…)

I usually spend my days writing about the hazards of being overweight and how unhealthy it is to be obese.  But, I’m flipping the coin today to speak about something that is equally important: skipping meals.

8 million people in the United States are suffering from bulimia, anorexia nervosa and other related disorders, according to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders.  This number is only an estimated “guess” because so many people suffering from this problem are very secretive about it and hide the truth from everyone they know.

Likely reason #6 why you aren’t losing weight quickly

When it comes to losing weight, everyone seems to have an answer to solve that problem, but they never seem to be asking the right kind of question. Why is my weight loss not happening? What am I doing wrong? I’m putting in the effort and I’m not seeing the results.  Why am I failing?

There’s no need to panic.  Information is all over the place.  In fact, infomercials, weight loss clinics, and health food stores are right at your disposal serving you the latest pills, juices, devices, or any combination of them all.  Each and every one of them promises “quick” weight loss. Unfortunately, each and every one of them is stealing money from your wallet.

REALITY CHECK: Losing weight quickly is absolutely, positively, 100 percent guaranteed to cause your body to gain weight.  You will not find an answer in any “magic” pill, potion, or juice.  So, STOP LOOKING!

The diet and weight loss industry is a multimillion dollar business. The problem is that they are making all the money and you are keeping all the weight.  It’s all based on fear, misinformation and guilt.

Every Tuesday for the last six weeks, I’ve offered you a new tip on how to combat the battle of the bulge in a smart and safe manner. If you are looking for quick weight loss secrets, this isn’t the place for you. But, if you’re trying to find a way to reduce your body weight using sound advice for long term fat reduction, read on.


Likely reason #6: I’m too old to begin an exercise program If you still need motivation to get started after reading these posts for the past six weeks, they you better go back and read them again.

Age is just a number.  If you are able to walk, you are able to exercise. Taking small steps and let your desire be the starting point for all of your future achievements.  I’ve worked with clients for all age groups and they all had to start somewhere. Don’t let the “tomorrow’s” be your excuse for not starting today.

“The difference between successful people and those who are not, is the resilience and ability to keep trying and overcome obstacles by applying the knowledge they’ve learned.”

Well, this wraps up this six post series.  I hope it has helped you set in motion your weight loss plans
