Q & A – Loose skin; when to train and more…


Heidi asked: “I have a question.  I’m vegan, no sugar, low carb and gluten free.  I’m not much over weight – maybe 5 pounds.  I’m 59 and mainly in good shape.  Your Female Fat Loss over 40 workout videos really helped me get here.  Thanks so much!  What I’d really like from you is more workout videos.  I don’t need dietary or hormone advice, and won’t use audio or read only workouts.  Can you provide that? 

Also, besides staying toned up and strong I have 2 other target concerns.  1) I have a prolapsed uterus.  2) Since losing 20 pounds over the last year I have some saggy skin.   If you can help with these issues please let me know.  Thank-you!”


Shawna replied: “I’m happy to hear that my program has helped you so far.

My partner, Lisa Bullock and I will be creating ‘Female Fat Loss Over 55/60’ soon. In the meantime we’ve put together a plan of the month program you can find HERE. 

Lisa has coaching videos for you in that plan and you’ll be delivered a plan of the month for 6 months. I know you’ll really enjoy the workouts.

As far as loose skin goes, there’s not a ton that can be done. It’s somewhat genetic as to how elastic your skin can be. I’m sorry I don’t have a magic bullet to fix loose skin. The good news is that if/when you lose weight you’ll be much healthier, you’ll look much better in clothes, but you may not feel 100% confident to rock a bikini.

That’s just the truth. I don’t want to feed you a line. You can get visible abs, but the skin on your stomach may still be loose.  Lisa is working on a blog post as we speak regarding Pelvic Floor and safe strengthening exercises – stay tuned!”

Leslie asked:  “What time of the day is the optimum time to perform my workouts?”

Shawna replied:  The BEST time of day to train is the time of day YOU feel the most energized and can give the most to your workout.  Some people are morning people, others are night owls.  There’s no one size fits all.Whenever you feel you have the time and energy to consistently train, that’s the best time for you.  There’s so much information on the internet these days – it’s easy to get confused.  Let’s keep it simple and just get it done!

Jenny asked:  “I struggle endlessly with my weight.  I know what to do but as soon as I get upset, or stressed I just go back to comfort eating.  Do you have any suggestions for how I can overcome my self sabotaging behaviour?”

Lisa answered:  “We’ve actually been chatting in the last week  to a lady who is an expert in this area of mindset and self-talk.  Christine has organised the Love Yourself Slim Summit and is offering FREE webinars from over 20 experts  regarding self image, self talk and finding out WHY you find it so hard to change the way your mind works.  She’s been there, done that and dealt decisively with her personal demons.  Once she did so, she found that her excess weight just dropped off and now she’s living a healthy, happy life helping other women win their own battles.
