Just eat more and exercise less backfired for Jennifer. In fact, she was taking that to the extreme at one point and was sick and injured but not losing weight.

Join us for this celebration of how to lose 100 lbs and make the mental changes, or continue to make them along the way.

Jennifer Long, golfer, swimmer, Iowa Hawkeye fan, runner, and a member of the I-lost 100 lbs club at age 67. We’re here to celebrate her success and dig into the process of weight gain and loss.

On this episode:

  • You’ve lost more than 100 lbs – and crossed that threshold recently – talk a little about the timeline so listeners have a good idea of where your weight gain and loss journey started.
  • What does it take to lose 100 lbs?
  • How did you think about exercise and food 10 years ago?
  • What would you tell yourself about exercise and nutrition if you could tell 50-year-old Jennifer something right now?
  • You’re no stranger to nutrition, blood sugar, insulin as a diabetes educator. How did your educational background, your vocation support your efforts?
  • How did they get in the way of your efforts?
  • These are my words… I would say that you’ve been swimming upstream.. what I mean by that is that you were not necessarily surrounded by people doing the same thing that you were doing or wanted to do… and before being online was an everyday occurrence you may have been a minority pursuing exercise. Truth to that?
  • What does this feel like compared to 10 years ago?
  • What’s your workout week like?
  • You’ve been able to experience several changes. Talk a little about sleep.
  • How many days a week do you exercise?

It’s never too late. Whether you want to lose 100 lbs. or 10, whether you are already or need to become an active person, you can change at any age.
