It’s about a mom called Marlo (played by Charlize Theron) who just had her third child and is on the precipice of postpartum depression until her brother sends a night nanny (Tully) to her rescue.

To play the role, the ever-gorgeous and fit Charlize Theron (who in real life, is a busy mom of two children via adoption) had to gain 50 pounds of excess weight in order to accurately depict what a real postnatal body looks like.

Though Theron is no stranger to self-transformation — as her Oscar-winning turn in “Monster” does attest — she says losing the weight she gained for the part took a lot longer at 42 than it did in her 20s. “It took me a year and a half to lose that weight.

It was one of the hardest things that my body went through — and women do this every day,” she told NPR.

Hopefully, when you stay focus, you can always do it.

As a registered dietitian, I hear this statement uttered by many of my over-40 patients who are trying to lose weight.

“If only I were 20 again, I could lose five pounds in a weekend,” they all say in our weight-loss sessions.

There’s some truth to this, of course.

Our 20-something selves have a naturally higher metabolism, more muscle and are generally more active than our 40-plus versions.

 Still, you can do it.

Your imagination will show you how to make it happen.
