As a person who was completely sedentary and facing all sorts of medical issues as I started my 50s then basically turned it all around by getting serious about exercise, I find her super motivational...but then again I frequently look at her photos/vids on Instagram and definitely ignore the captions. Intentional weight loss (IWL) is a trap, and Health At Every Size (HAES) is absolutely the way to go. And starting small and eventually working up to bigger and bigger exercise goals turns out to be the absolute bomb. If you find her motivational, cool. If you want to chuck her in the bin and move along to some other form of motivation, cool. But if you're thinking you're too old to start, you're wrong. Pick a baby step and get moving.
