I'm 38 and I know hormones play a part. Try tracking your food and your fitness on this site, then if you continue to gain weight or not lose, you can print out what you have eaten and show your doctor. When I did that a few years ago the first time I was on spark, my doctor finally believed me that I was eating right and did a ton of blood tests and found I had hypothyroidism.
Maybe tracking the food will help. One day, I ate a half. Up of peanuts and will never do that agin, it had like 30 grams of fat. I know nuts have healthy fats and are better fats, but that was way too much, so it showed me 5-10 peanuts are enough for a portion.
Good luck to you!
