Dani Bates Weight Loss Coach

Permanent Weight loss without the struggle for women over 50

Stop dieting, start living

You’re tired. Tired of wishing you could lose weight and get healthy. Tired of wasting energy trying to figure out the answer. Tired of feeling invisible when you know you have so much to give.

You’re a woman over 50 who has spent a lifetime attending to the needs of everyone around you (and doing a spectacular job, by the way!)

The kids are gone, your career is on cruise control, you’re no longer trying to fit 48 hours of busy-ness into every 24 hour day.

You have plans for your retirement. And guess what they don’t include? Dieting and worrying about your weight. Yet somehow… that seems to be the way you’re spending a huge chunk of your time.

You’re beginning to realize that you’ve got to do something about your health and your weight pretty darn quick. Honestly, isn’t the next stage of life what you’ve been dreaming of as your reward for all of the hard work you’ve done?

You’ve checked out all the programs; Weight Watchers, Mediterranean, Paleo, Atkins, Counting, counting calories and exercising more. You think you “know what to do” (in theory),  but frankly you’re feeling spent from the past 20+ years of go-go-go and you can’t seem to find the oomph needed to start a new diet or exercise program.

Your fondest wish at this moment is to just do whatever the heck feels good…’cuz dang it…you’ve worked hard and you deserve it! But you also know that you need some sort of guidance, because this problem is not going away on its own.

I’ve got you. It doesn’t have to be like this!

I can show you how you can actually lose weight AND keep it off once and for all in a way that doesn’t use a diet or a rigorous exercise regime. A way to drop the extra weight, improve your health, and have the energy to enjoy the next phase of your life just like you’ve always dreamed of.

Do you wish you could:

  • Lose weight without deprivation (duh!)?
  • Feel good about your body when you see it naked in the mirror? (yes…it is possible)
  • Believe deep in your bones that this could really work for you?
  • Not give up your favorite foods to achieve this dream?
  • Know 100% without a doubt that the weight will never return?

I’m Dani Bates, and I spent 50 years convinced I was “fat and ugly” and the only way I could find love or any success in life was to starve and shrink myself to look like the images I saw in the media (and I’m a 6’ tall woman…so shrinking me was a big deal!).  Deprivation was my go to tool. And it made me MISERABLE!

For the past 26 years I’ve worked in healthcare. I’m a physical therapist by training, but my secret mission was to learn everything I could about human physiology, so I could unlock the secret to losing weight and keeping it off.

I wondered why, if I was so smart, why I couldn’t stop the pounds from piling up. Slowly but steadily, especially as I hit the beginning of my 50’s and the “change of life”.

That is, until I discovered that losing weight and keeping it off permanently had more to do with the thoughts and beliefs in my head (the way I talked to myself about myself) than the specific diet that I was following (or not following!).

Now, I help women over 50 go from hating their bodies to taking charge of their lives…losing weight and moving towards the goal they want to achieve rather than moving away from the things they don’t want.

I’d love to help you.

Imagine if you could:

  • Stepping on the scale every single morning and seeing “that number” and knowing it was your natural weight ?
  • Feeling good putting on all the clothes in your closet and having everything fit perfectly?
  • Having enough energy to do the things you want to do…whether it’s getting down on the floor to play with your grandchildren, hiking the Camino De Santiago, or hanging out with your girlfriends?
  • Going to the doctor for your annual check-up and have them tell you you’re doing fantastic (and “PS what have you changed…we want to know??”)
  • Looking forward to going to a reunion or family gathering because you were proud of how you looked?

I would love to help you.

Together, we will discover what you’re doing that is causing you to be overweight in the first place (hint: it’s almost certainly not what you think). Then we’ll design a step by step plan, uniquely for you. After working with dozens of women, what I’ve learned is there’s no value in handing out indentikit plans. Every single woman is unique, and needs a plan that works for her.  This plan will lead you to your ideal weight in a way that fits your lifestyle and your preferences, and ensures that once the weight is gone…it’s gone forever.

How it works;

  1. We start with a pre-consult assessment. This gets us hone in on who you are, your likes, dislikes, what has and hasn’t worked for you in the past, so I can best address your unique concerns.
  2. Then we hop on the phone for a free no-obligation 20 minute chat to determine if we’re a good fit to work together. (I absolutely won’t take $$ from someone I’m not positive I can help…but I will share resources with you so you’ll have plenty to get started on your own).
  3. If we decide to work together, we spend 6 months working step by step digging deep into nutrition, habits, thoughts, and beliefs, until we’ve achieved your goals. We work 60 minutes a week, 3 x a month on the phone. These calls are recorded and sent to you so you can review them as often as you like. Remember, I work with each client individually, so your plan is completely unique to you.


  • Daily access to me (for questions and help) via an app on your smartphone (completely confidential).
  • Special worksheets and exercises that are timed and designed just for you. Everything YOU need and nothing you don’t!
  • A library of resources that you’ll have access to forever…long after you’ve achieved your goal 

You can do this! Imagine…you’ll finally get to the weight you’ve been dreaming of for years, and best of all, once you’ve lost the weight (in this step by step fashion), you’ll never have to worry about regaining it.

The Result?

Energy, health, pride and a sense of accomplishment.

Ready to shed the pounds and the stress and take on life with a new found sense of joy?
