A 51-year-old mother has spoken out about her transformation and revealed she feels younger and sexier than ever before.
Laura Heikkila from California claims she is more popular among the younglings than she was when she was younger. As Laura added, guys often hit on her and try to get her to give them her phone number.
Ms. Heikkila has begun losing the extra pounds after her health started deteriorating following her pregnancy. Since 2002, she has been resorting to a rigorous regime including weights training and selective diet.
Now, the proud mother boasts of her good looks as she shares her pictures with her 26,000 Instagram followers.
“I get comments like, ‘are you really fifty? You look like you’re in your twenties’ or ‘do you date younger guys?’ To which I respond that my husband frowns upon that,” Laura admitted.
“My husband is proud to have a fit wife and he has been really cool about all the male attention I get especially since I started my IG account which sometimes seems more like a dating site because guys are always sliding into your DMs.
“But I don’t think much of it because my pictures are there to inspire women to not give up on themselves.”
As the 51-year-old mother added, she now feels more confident and healthier than ever.
“When I was in my twenties I never really thought much about my health; I just wanted to be thin,” she added.
“I probably had a lot less confidence at the time and could never imagine posting the pictures I do now, although I guess that wasn’t an option since there was no internet.
“Being consistent has been the key to my success; I eat a diet of whole foods which is largely plant-based along with some organic chicken, turkey, and wild caught fish. I weight train several days a week and also incorporate high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts and yoga.
“Maintaining my body has allowed me to live an active life with a lot of travel and it has also given me a platform in social media to help other women regain their confidence.
“I feel more confident in my skin and I’m proud to be fifty-two and tell people my age because I feel my body reflects someone that has taken care of their health.”
