I know what you mean about being stuck with your weight. I have the same problem. I focus on trying to reach 20 miles on my daily rides.
My son gave me some information that might be helpful. Starting with the age of 50, our metabolism will decrease by 10%, our caloric intake needs to be decreased by 10-15% and our rate of weight loss becomes increasingly more difficult. This will continue at this rate for every 10 years as we age.He also told me that there is very little research about fitness for adults over 50. We research a lot of articles but most are written in broad general terms.Hope this helps a little.

Since my weight has plateaued for the last 2 years, with the exception of going up slightly... emoticon I try to focus on how much fun my work-out is and how much easier it is to move around now that I'm fit.
I might be stuck with this weight for the rest of my life, but at least I'll be fit and have fun!
(Work-outs are lots more fun when you're fit... they don't hurt or feel exhausting anymore.)

“The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not.”

As you bike or run for a distance how do you stay focused on your training?
What is going through your head as you plow through the work out?
