Struggling with weight gain is common, and it does not matter how young or old you are. In your 20s, you thought you could eat just about anything you wanted, but those unhealthy fats, sugars, cholesterol and carbohydrates take up long term residence in your body. By the time you reach your 50s, 60s, and beyond, you might think losing weight will never happen. In reality, age is not the defining factor for weight loss. Determination and perseverance make all the difference. Sometimes, having a partner helps you succeed, and Mom can be the perfect one.
As a senior, Mom’s diet requirements are different. Her body may not enjoy food like in her younger years. She may find herself gorging at times, and if she is sedentary, her weight will increase, threatening her overall health. Ask Mom to join you in getting your respective health under control, so both of you can keep enjoying a fun, fulfilling lifestyle. When you cannot be around to help her, a trained caregiver from Home Instead Senior Care can help her eat a healthy, well-balanced senior diet.
