WHY I COULDN'T LOSE WEIGHT | MY BODY TYPE
Is Losing Weight After 30 Impossible?
Miranda Lambert won female vocalist of the year last night at the CMA's—and she looked amazing doing it. The 29-year-old country star flaunted a new slimmed-down figure in a blue Roberto Cavalli gown, which her hot hubbie, Blake Shelton, apparently couldn't resist. (His tweet: "My wife is so hot it's ridiculous…" Love that!)
Lambert has famously resisted the stereotypical Hollywood body pressures—so why the sudden urge to shed pounds? Lambert turns 30 this Sunday, which, she told reporters, is when everything (she's been told) starts going downhill. "So I just thought, maybe if I get ahead of it a little, I won't have to work so hard later in life," she said to People.
Is 30 really the beginning of the end for your flat abs, though? "Metabolism does slow over time," says Katie Rickel, Ph.D. a psychologist at Wellspring at Structure House, a weight-management facility in Durham, North Carolina. "So weight loss after 30 might occur at a slower rate than it would in earlier decades of life."
But a slower burn isn't entirely to blame for extra baggage. "More commonly, weight loss is perceived as more difficult at later ages because priorities change," says Rickel. "Folks over 30 might have greater responsibilities—childcare, building careers—than people in their 20s. This could lead to less time to exercise or to cook healthy meals."
In other words, you can stay lean later in life—it just may mean prioritizing weight management. If you make workouts and eating right nonnegotiable, then you should still be able to shed pounds well past 30.
