Welcome Shine. I've been on here for several years. And that your body has changed is not the issue. It's your panic about it I'm concerned about. Since it's been rapid, the first thing is to have a complete physical where they take your blood to check out thyroid changes and everything else they can think of. Something physiological has probably occurred. That this happens to most of us at some point is part of the changes with aging. May you find solace at Sparks and learn what is and is not in your control to change. Dale

Hi, I am 52 and for the last 2 years was at a feel-good weight of 115. I felt great, had energy, no tummy, even though I am hypothyroid. Suddenly, at 52 all things change. 7lbs heavier - definitely not a big number, but it feels SO SO different. Gained in 1 year. I was 115 last April. Thighs bigger, tummy... even my hair is different. In a nutshell I feel suddenly matronly and unattractive. M husband thinks I am crazy. Wants me to gain weight, not lose. I think he is crazy! I can't seem to lose an ounce. I try to jog but I am just wiped out. good grief! 7lbs seems like 20!! I am even trying Amberen to help with weight loss (and the moodiness) though I am not going thru menapause. so, since my daughter is on Sparks I thought I would check it out as well.
