All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient : all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

MJZ: Thanks, I saw those in the list. I'll check them out too. Long ago I also had a concave stomach. Only a distant memory now.

Brooklyn - I can't vouch for them because I have discovered them online during this injury to my tailbone (sure am learning a lot while "resting"). Plan on testing them out asap. They are called abdominal hollowing and pelvic tilts, pelvic lifts. They also have an article about all this and we should feel good to know that our life styles (eating healthy, exercising) keeps this fat at bay. I am going to do these exercises for me since the fat disappeared this time from thighs and butt but not the stomach as much (loving the smaller bottom size - something new at this age!).

I've found that one of the many benefits of building muscle is that it lets me eat more food than others my age, weight, and height. It's more metabolically active, so I can maintain on a couple hundred more calories a day than my counterparts.

I think hormones are to blame for this as well, although I must say I have never had big hips and thighs but belly fat instead so there are big individual differences.

I am over 50 and the biggest surprise in losing my weight is that it came off the hips and thighs - my thighs were never this small even when I was the same weight younger. But my waist was always smaller and my stomach almost concave at this weight and now it is certainly not concave. So I decide to amp up the situps. Wellll....guess what, I start reading and find out crunches won't handle this! Also, this fat is not normal stomach fat but very unhealthy as it is woven by organs! Thank goodness they (Mayo Clinic site) for one do give the two exercises very important for women to do as they age because only thing that will touch this fat! So I learn more about these amazing bodies. When we are younger, fat stored in thighs and butt because of estrogen to take care of children we may have (all because of my future children I had thunder thighs!) and this fat is very stubborn to move. Estrogen levels drop as we get older and the fat wants to go to the organs by the stomach - and this fat is very stubborn to move. What I do wonder is what is the point in having it go to the stomach - what is that about?

I'm just 49, so maybe not old enough, LOL, but haven't found it true that it is harder to maintain when getting older. I did find that when I switched to eating low-carb (for life) half a year ago that it is now very easy to maintain within a few pounds even with moderate exercise. I assume this is true because of the role hormones play in regulating weight.
Having said this, there may be huge differences between people depending on how much weight they lost.
I read something recently that questioned the setpoint theory, will try to find it.

It is certainly true that over 50, it is just harder to lose and maintain and any weight gain seems to go immediately to the waist and abdomen!

I hope they show it again. I recorded it and DH (aka the junk food king of the world) deleted it.

I have no idea but wonder if it has to do with set point theory. A person who always weighed 140 has a metabolism that maintains that weight for her at 1800c, but if she dieted to lose that weight, she had to fight her higher established set point to get there. One theory holds that one can change one's set point through cardio activity over a period of time, which changes the metabolism.

This also reminds me of a similar sad fact. After 50, women just can't maintain their weight eating the number of calories that the math or SP ranges would prescribe. We know that, sadly, we have to consume at the low end of our range to lose or maintain.

I searched internet but couldn't find anything on this. Hopefully someone else will know more about this - I am finding all this learning really interesting. I did read that someone heavier in their adolescence will have a harder time with maintenance in adult life because they have more fat cells from adolescence.

I was just thinking about the HBO 4 part series, specifically the research that concluded the caloric needs for a person who had met their weight loss goal was less than a person who had always been that same weight.

I don’t remember the percentage differential or the exact numbers. It was something like this.
A woman who weighed 140 throughout her adult life needs about 1800 calories/day to maintain. But one who lost 50 lbs to reach the 140 lb goal needs only 1650 to maintain.

This research was only a small part of the series, but of special interest to me in maintenance. Does anyone else remember this or have an opinion of its validity?
Could this be one reason people find it hard to maintain?
