With each year my body shape has continued to improve and I’m absolutely ecstatic about that. Who would’ve thought it was possible to turn back the clock when you are well into your 60's.
Keeda confided, I've struggled with my weight my entire life.
It started in my early teens when I would skip meals in an effort to help keep the extra weight off and it didn't help.
My weight crept up and up. By 53 years of age my weight had sky rocketed.
I tried numerous quick fix diets to see immediate results but they were short lived. Nothing seemed to work for me. Food was my safe haven and as the years went on the overeating, cravings and binging increased.
My confidence, my health, and my physical and mental well-being were at an all time low. I had completely lost control.
I knew I had to make a lifestyle change.
I started resistance exercise and learned how to lift weights correctly.
I stopped using cardio exercise to try burn-off excess calories.
Most importantly, I started to nourish my body.
Stronger, leaner, healthier! Keeda continues to improve each year with each program.
Overall I have lost 32kilos. This is the only time in my life that I’ve been able to lose weight and keep it off.
What is amazing is that I’m eating 4, 5 and even 6 meals per day. I am never hungry, I don’t have those cravings and I don’t overeat like I used to!
I feel in control of my mind and body and I have gained so much confidence.
I have become stronger, leaner, more motivated. I have more energy than I could ever have imagined.
I'm in my 60's and I feel 30. I finally have my life back.
Here is Keeda's tips
1. Admit that you aren’t happy, this is a very important start. However, there is no need to beat yourself up. It's ok to want to improve yourself. It's not a silly idea. Wanting to improve your health and appearance is not vain. You are not wasting time. In fact, you owe it to yourself and those around you. Now you can take the steps to create change.
2. Think a lot about why you want to improve. Why do you really want to be a better version of you? This is the second step. Without a clear why, those good intentions will never stick. I learned that my why meant discovering happiness in simple ways such as having more energy every day. I can fit into clothes I love to wear, or shop for new!! The confidence and accomplishment of a great week of exercise training is a great feeling. So is a great meal prep. These are the small but very important wins that make you a better person and get you through the tough times.
3. Understand that you have to get outside your comfort zone and find people to help and support you. You need to actively seek out great communities of people, coaches and mentors that you can learn from, grow with and be accountable to. The worst thing you can do is decide to change and then keep it to yourself, hidden from the rest of the world. If you try to do it on your own you'll be back to your old ways within 6 weeks.
4. I've learned that body shape improvements don't come from staving or abusing your body with endless hours of exercise. Great changes come from nourishing your body with a delicious variety of foods. The Transformationcookbook.com removed the hassle and guess-work about what to eat every week.
So many delicious recipes that make meal prepping so easy. I've achieved goals I never thought were possible.
I've built the best body of my whole life in my 60's. Just remember, it's never too late.
