Top 10 Ageless After 50 posts of 2016

It’s hard to believe it’s the end of another year. And, from what I can gather, most people would rather forget 2016 ever happened.    In fact, people who write about history could leave it out of any future textbooks and no one would complain. Let’s just close the lid, nail it shut, dust off…

3 Steps to create an effective weight loss strategy

Ask people about their goals for the New Year and 99% will answer, “lose weight!” “get in shape!” or “be happy!” The remaining 1% are still too hungover to answer. Studies show we’re more likely to find motivation when we have a clean slate in front of us: a new home, new relationship, new job…

3 Non-negotiable keys to weight loss success (plus a bonus tip!)

I’ve never been a big negotiator, even at yard sales and swap meets where you’re expected to haggle. It makes me uncomfortable.  I’m sure this weirdness can be traced back to some childhood issue.

A belly fat blasting tactic no one talks about (that really works!)

I consider myself an optimistic, level-headed person. (Okay, maybe there’s some debate on the latter. Still.) But sometimes my body decides to show me who’s boss. Such is the case with anxiety.

#1 Habit all successful people practice every day
