050: Deb's Story: At 70, Proves It's Never Too Late
Play • 33 min

So many people think that it’s too late to change your habits and get healthy at 60 or 70 years old… but Deb is walking, thriving proof that it's never too late.

Deb's Story

This is a story of success by Deb Dicken, a Healthy Free Life student. Deb is 70 years young and lived most of her life on a diet. Her first attempt at dieting started at 17 years old and has since created a cycle of dieting, gaining and losing the same 50 pounds at least five times in her life.

She doesn’t even remember a time in her life that she wasn’t either on a diet or thought that she should be on one… until now.

It's Never Too Late

Last year, everything changed when she said, "Yes!" to her Healthy Free Life journey.

Deb was exhausted, in pain, and struggled with insomnia. She battled a sugar addiction which caused her to binge eat, especially the day before starting a diet. Just ten months after becoming a Healthy Free Life student, Deb has lost 40 pounds and truly believes she will never regain it because of her newfound lifestyle.


“I feel like if I don’t lose any more weight from now, which I know I’m going to, I’m still okay and that was a long time coming.” – Deb Dicken


Deb shares her journey and her most helpful tips for getting and staying healthy later in life!


“It’s not work. I think the difference is it’s not another job, it’s a way of life, and so you don’t ever give up on a way of life.” – Deb Dicken
