77 Year Old Grandmother Achieves Target Weight

It seems you love a story as much as the next person

My story about Joy was well received last week

And today I have another great story for you

(I read this in the daily mail online)

Are you sitting comfortably, then I will begin 😉

After the breakdown of her first marriage Brenda started putting on weight

When she reached 20 stone, she decided to go on a diet

Brenda now weighs 9 stone 9lbs and can finally fit into a size 10 dress.

It all sounds good up to this point

However the interesting thing was – Brenda was 77 years old

It had taken her 50 years to do it!

She started her diet in her 20’s and reached her goal in her 70’s

Brenda said

“The diet went well over the first few years”

“but for the past 40 years I’ve been struggling to lose the last three stone.”

“At one point I saw a picture of myself in the local paper I looked like a big green blob.”

“From that point on I was determined to lose weight.”

She shed seven stone over the next decade

She says she used a combination of exercise and cutting out cakes

(What is it with you women and cake?!)

but still she could never shift the remaining three stone.

Finally, she turned to weightwatchers in 2010

and slowly crept towards her target weight in October of that year.

It’s an interesting story

Firstly I would like to say well done to Brenda

Anyone who has seen something through to the end should be congratulated

But looking at it critically

I’m sure Brenda would have liked to have done it a bit quicker

Statistics say that the average women is ‘on a diet’ for 30 years of their life.

I find it unbelievable that women, including my own wife

spend the best part of their life, worrying about their weight

There is no need for it to drag on for this bleedin long

It’s a difficult goal, but achievable if you break it up into steps

Put it to bed

Get the job done

So you can get on with enjoying your life again

Brenda struggled with her last three stone for 40 years

Then after all those years of dieting on her own

She went to weightwatchers

Now I haven’t always been fan of weightwatchers

But in fairness, they are getting better

They don’t pedal the low fat diet any more, which is a good thing

AND if you don’t buy all the weightwatchers beans, bread and ready meals

You will be just fine

From what I’m told, they provide a decent service

Especially considering what you pay

They have a good system of support and education

And it works for loads of women

Now, I’m not trying to promote weightwatchers here

But I want to draw your attention to the point I want to make

Don’t be afraid to ask for help

We often think that asking for help is a sign of weakness

It’s not, quite the opposite, it takes strength to ask for help

We all struggle

We all get overwhelmed

We all need help

“Acknowledging you need help is not a sign of weakness, but struggling alone is a choice to grow weak.”

Ask for help, especially if you have struggled with the same goal for a long time

It doesn’t have to take 50 years for you to reach your goal

By the way Brenda says she now maintains her size 10 size by

“strict eating, long walks and home exercises”

I say good for her!
