I am 63 almost 64 and I find loosing weight really hard, but that's because I have a hypothyroid and am on several medicines that make it more difficult to loose weight. Every doctor I've talked to and I have many says yes it's a little difficult to loose when you are post menopausal, but certainly not very hard. I wish I didn't have medical problems. It would be that much easier for me!

Good luck!

I know what you mean. Even though I weigh slightly less than 10 years ago, by body looks different. Keeping it toned is a job. And heaven forbid you slack on the workouts for a while!
I did for a month after we came home from a Jamaican vacation in January.
I worked so hard for 6 months before that so I looked and felt great on vacation. Only gained 3 pounds while away but when we got home, I had no incentive to work out or watch what I ate, and I paid for it with 10 pounds extra and feeling awful
. So I am back at it with the start of lent. 6 pounds down and back to working out daily. I already feel so much better!
I won't say I will never have the body I once did. There are plenty of women my age who really transformed their bodies!

I'm grateful for this site too. I've noticed a huge difference in my body between now and 13 years ago when I lost a bunch of weight. I'm not nearly as toned as I was then and even though the scale is telling me good things, I don't look the same this time. It's a real adjustment to realize that I'm in my 50's now and not in my late to early 40's.

I understand what you're saying exactly. That's exactly why I am trying this site- to get some sort of support to help me stick to it in those times when the whole goal feels overwhelming. emoticon

I'm having a terrible time wanting/doing exercising or keeping my weight down. I'm a returning Spark person, so hoping for support. Meal planning/shopping being simplified may help.
