Can you lose weight after 3 children as you enter 40s. The answer is yes and Jessica Simpson is proof of that.
As people age, weight gain becomes a bigger issue. Somehow having children is often used as a reason for weight gain and plenty of women who have had children who have put on weight would say that is the main reason for their weight gain. However if you really want something then anything is possible.
Jessica Simpson lost incredible 45kg (100 pound) weight, which was evident in a new photo she posted on Instagram with her daughter Birdie Mae. The photo captioned “Cali Cowgirls”, double heart emoji and “BIRDIEMAE” made her look a lot younger than her current age of 40.
An earlier picture of her showed that getting your 14 year old body back is actually possible.
She wrote on Instagram;
“I have kept these throwback True Religion jeans in my closet for 14 years (I’m not exaggerating!),” she wrote on Instagram on July 9. “I figured that since I’m in the final hours of my 30s, I’d give them another try, and hello 40, so nice to meet you.”
So how did she do it?
According to the Mirror she enlisted the help of LA personal trainer Harley Pasternak using 5 daily behaviour program which we have listed below;
1. Walking – she was set a challenge of 14,000 steps per day. He claims this is the best form of burning fat.
2. 7 hours of sleep
3. Unplugging from technology for 1 hours a day
4. Eating 3 meals a day and 2 snacks which are fibre and protein heavy – according to Life and style magazine she enlisted the help of a chef and there were some cheat days involved.
5. Resistance works out.
The fitness expert said:
"It had to be more than just getting back from her baby weight, but how do I keep whatever I am doing now forever."
How long did it take her?
Following this regime it took her 6 months to lose the weight.
Can you do the same?
Of course you can, however the biggest challenge for most is the motivation. Many would say being a mother is hard work and I am sure the added stress of looking after a baby, the lack of sleep and limited time to walk 14,000 steps probably doesn’t help.
However, it is down to you to make the change you want in your life. If weight loss really is your goal then being disciplined and keeping to a routine really is the answer. It seems with weight loss comes confidence too so initially it may seem tough but being persistent will get you there. Keeping motivated for 6 months will be testing but I am sure it is possible.
