65 and Very Alive!

65 and Very Alive!

Tom and I a few years ago.

Well, that’s what my husband, Tom, has been saying to me and everyone else who will listen to him lately. The reason he’s so pumped up about being 65 years young is because he’s lost 52 pounds in the past two months and he’s feeling and looking amazing! He’s a great example of how Baby Boomers can achieve healthy aging.

I’ve known Tom for 13 years, married for 12, and he’s always been overweight. Tom’s a ‘good old boy’ from upstate New York and strong as an ox with an appetite to match! After nearly a year of hearing me talk about the benefits of the amazing nutritional products from Isagenix and seeing and hearing about the results from others, Tom made a conscious decision at the end of 2013 that he was going to take control of his weight and his health. And, boy did he take it seriously!



Tom chose the 30-day weight loss program from Isagenix and followed it to a T. That’s Tom! When he makes up his mind to do something, his determination is strong. He has more self-discipline than anyone I know! Here are some of the things he did to increase his success:

I joined him on his journey because it’s always easier when you have a travelling companion. I became his coach throughout the process and he helped me with my self-discipline. We are a good team!

Isagenix has a weight loss challenge each year called IsaBody Challenge. He decided to really “up the ante” by entering the challenge for 2014. There are some big monetary prizes, trips and free products. He’s determined to win something! Keep your fingers crossed for him. We will know by August if he has won something.

He also used all of the support available to those going through the weight loss program. Isagenix provides a wealth of health information on various websites and there are accountability groups and support groups on Facebook that he participated in.



So, what were the results after 30 days? Tom lost 35 pounds and 35 inches!!! WOW!!! I lost 9 lbs…what’s up with that???

Well, men typically lose faster than women and he had more to lose. And he’s lost the additional weight after completing the 30 days by doing the maintenance program for a total loss of 52 pounds and 62 inches!!!

He feels great and has more energy. I think his mood is better and his skin and eyes even look clearer to me. Oh, and he wants people to know that he started a new job within weeks of losing the weight! He has the energy, stamina and clarity of mind to learn a new job! He asked me to tell everyone that as a member of the Baby Boomer generation, he wants to show others that healthy aging takes “feeling old” out of one’s vocabulary and replaces it with “never felt better!”

This time I told you about what Tom is doing. Next time I will tell you about what I am doing to stay healthy. If you are interested in weight loss, better energy and performance or healthy aging, please contact me and I can help you with that. Or just feel free to contact me with any questions. My passion in my coaching is to help everyone “make the rest of their life the best of their life” and you can’t do that unless you stay healthy as you are aging.

Here’s to Healthy Aging,




“Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.”
–Betty Friedan

“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, The last of life, for which the first was made: Our times are in his hands Who sayeth ‘a whole I planned, Youth shows but half; Trust God; see all nor be afraid.'”
–Robert Browning



  1. […] When I came across this month’s quote, I chuckled because it was very visual to me. But then I started to think about people that I see in my coaching practice who don’t know which way to go in their lives. They are stuck…unable to move forward. They know they want to do something, but because they aren’t sure what, or they are afraid, they do nothing. I have been there myself and I’m sure many of you have been there. It can happen at any age, even with us Baby Boomers and woman over 50! […]
