The Roberta Saum Blog
Private all female Facebook Group support group.
I am very active on Instagram. I post motivational messages there daily.
I’m Roberta and I’ve been an athlete all my life but it was just covered in a layer of fat. I am currently 54 years old and I started my fitness quest when I was 19 years old. Over the years I ran and lifted weights, I practiced martial arts, ran marathons, hiked, skied, and biked. Over the decades the weight piled on. I kept on working out harder and harder thinking I would lose the weight but it kept growing.
I tried diets, lost, then gained, lost, then gained, the typical yo-yo story. At age 48 I finally reached my peak of 197 lbs. at 5’1″. I had chronic back pain and thyroid and adrenal fatigue. I kept working out and running one marathon after the next thinking maybe this time it will work. Nope, the weight stayed on. Everyone told me to give up; this is what happens when you get older. I never gave up and here is the results:
I wish you the best with your health and fitness goals. It is never too late to follow your dreams!
