Every man knows its taboo to ask a woman her age. But ask a woman whose fit and she’ll shout it from the mountain tops! I’ve never had a problem sharing my age. Every birthday means another opportunity to live a fit and fabulous life. But since getting in the best shape of my life at 41, I wear my age on my sleeve like a badge of honor.
People are sometimes shocked at by age, but that wasn’t always the case. Last year, I was overweight at 170 lbs on a 5’4” frame. One morning, I became frustrated and near tears, when I realized that I had nothing to wear to work because all my clothes were too tight. I decided right then and there, at 6:00 a.m. standing in my closet naked, that I was getting rid of the weight once and for all! Too many months of late night eating, junk food binges, fast food runs and no exercise had caught up to me BIG time! (pun intended 😉 )
Here’s what I did to turn it all around and start living fit and fabulous at 40!
