Lose Weight and Get Fit Fast After 60… Match Your Fitness Plan to Your Lifestyle!

In my experience, there are two reasons that women our age fail to get in shape, even when they have made a decision to do so. The first is that they start too fast. The second is that they choose a fitness plan that does not match their lifestyle or fitness level.

In this morning’s show, I would like to talk about how to pick the perfect fitness plan so that you can get to a healthy weight, feel stronger and regain your balance and flexibility.

What are you doing to stay in shape these days? What does your fitness plan look like? Why do you think so many people fail when they decide to get in shape, especially after 60?

    I decided to add more strength training & was surprised to find the firm videos on DVD. But I wound up feeling the warm-up was inadequate at my age so I got a Richard Simmons DVD & I do his warm-up, pop the DVD out & do the firm workout & cool down.


    Hi Margaret
    Hope all is well with u
    I love swimming
    I also do weights in the pool
    I highly recommend getting a trainer to keep things challenging
    Have a nice day

    Timely, since I’m about to renew my acquaintance with the gym after a few months’ absence. I did learn the hard way to no longer do fast, intense repetitions…since every time I tried that, some joint suffered as a result! Off I go….

  • Jean Jacobs

    Greetings Margaret! You know, I taught gentle yoga for over 35 years. Don’t know where I’d be without it! Also, where do you find those colorful bead necklaces? So cheerful! Blessings!

    Exercise is a habit that needs to be formed. After just making yourself do something for 30 days it will become a habit. Whether good or bad. Now I go for walks every day and I challenge myself to go a little further or go on areas or there’s hills. That way it gets my heart rate up. Since I’m single I have a German Shepherd that I walk with and feel safe. I now I am trying to add yoga especially in the evenings to stretch my muscles before I go to sleep. If you have a smart TV, there are many you tubers that do yoga.I also try and do some sit ups and work with light handweights which again you can find Youtubers with the right program that feels good for you.

    Hi Margaret: I just saw another article about how younger woman have stopped dyeing their hair and are letting the gray grow out. Meanwhile, we are assaulted with advertising of anti-aging products, as if getting older was a capital offense!! Please consider doing a video, because we’re getting all kinds of mixed signals from the beauty industry. I’m so tired of it. Thanks so much! Rosemarie xo

      HI, Aging is a blessing. Be aware that anti-aging products are mostly corporate profit driven. If you are happy with who you are and how you are, there’s no profit! I am an ANTI anti-aging warrior.

    Could you should what you do for exercise ?

    I’ve had to adjust my exercise routine due to osteoarthritis in my hip. Some days are worse than others, so I just listen to my body and do what I can. The most difficult thing is slowing down. I used to do Zumba and aerobics, but I can’t pound the joints anymore, so I do spin classes. I’ve started using the joint yoga you posted when I get up to get everything moving, before I do my hip physio exercises. Everything creaks and pops, but my Tai Chi teacher would say that’s the chi blockages freeing up. The answer is to keep moving.

    Hi Margaret: There are some other reasons we fail to get in shape, also. We may try unsuccessfully, to lose weight (me), have chronic pain (me), developed insulin resistance or adrenal fatigue..or, a host of other reasons. Depression (and frustration) over life situations or not being able to get the scale to budge is a big factor. Wishing can’t always make it so, even with hard work. I’m currently seeing an endocrinologist; however, so far, tests are coming back fairly normal. I’ve gained 37 pounds since menopause (!) and am a petite woman. Your advice is always sound, but, this is a huge problem for me.
    Thank you, and be blessed. Rosemarie xo

    How do u stay so upbeat all the time?

  • Barbyl W

    Giving up 95 percent of carbs. Is nearly a must after 60 I believe. Lost 55 lbs this year by fasting and keto and I’m 66
