Middle-Aged Women – the forgotten ones.
I’ve been meaning to address this topic for some time. In fact, I was going to do this as a SPECIAL next Mother’s day. But after talking to ‘Jacqui’ one of my middle-aged clients, I was too moved to put it off any longer.
Jacqui is one of my ‘typical’ middle-aged female clients who had been forgotten about (by herself).
Before she had kids, Jacqui was a pretty active person and ate the typical meat and three vege, pastas, rice dishes, roasts – what we all grew up eating as a typical Aussie diet. She had kids when she was younger because that was the done thing, and they became her world.
Jacqui’s kids were her priority, and as soon as they were a little older, she went back in to work to help her husband pay the bills and so they could afford a few things they’d been holding out on whilst on one income. She was a frugal saver.
Jacqui would spend her mornings getting the kids off to school, worked during the day, then picked the kids after school, took them to their activities, got home and cooked dinner. When they went to bed, she did the washing and ironing and other jobs that just needed to be done. She took pride in being a good wife and a good mother. She was great at it.
‘The kids came first’ – I always get told.
Jacqui neglected her own health a little, prioritising her kids and other important things before herself. She felt tired and run down from time to time, but always put it down to being busy with the kids, busy being a parent. ‘Yes I felt pretty stressed, but that’s life, everyone’s the same, no use complaining about it’.
Over the years Jacqui would go to the Dr’s for a check up, everything always came back fine when she got her bloods tested. When she mentioned she was tired, stressed and had gained some weight, people would say, ‘well you’ve got 3 kids, that’s to be expected’.
Determined to feel a little better and not wanting to start any medications, Jacqui would try going a few nights without having a glass of wine, and tried going for walks. Jacqui felt better, but things got in the way, she fell off the wagon.
Jacqui thought when her kids grew up and left home, she’d get herself sorted. She’ll go to the gym and eat better, and finally lose some weight. It will finally be her time to take care of herself.
Fast-forward 10 years and Jacqui’s kids have left home. Jacqui is on an anti-depressant to manage her anxiety, she’s 15kg heavier than she’s ever been. The Dr tells her she is perimenopausal, her cholesterol is creeping up and her blood pressure is borderline.
Jacqui knows what she needs to do, but can’t seem to get started properly and maintain consistency. Adding to that, she’s confused as to what she should eat and what she should do. She’s getting different advice from different people, different articles, different websites. Confused, overwhelmed, frustrated and not sure where to start, Jacqui lands in my consult room, wanting a change, hoping I can help.
The reason I describe Jacqui as ‘forgotten’, is because she forgot to look after herself all of those years. Now she’s left feeling helpless, and worse still, no one really understands how to help Middle-Aged Women feel better, balance their hormones and help them lose weight in a way that suits them.
The ‘middle-aged’ body is very different to that of a 20 or 30-something. So please recognise this difference and act accordingly.
