MENopause or something

Saturday, December 27, 2014

I'm 48yr in 2 days. I have been having changes in my periods & hot flushes now & again for about a year now. Nothing hideous....ya!

So ya that it's not hideous, but the weight thing is really peeving me. Working really hard to increase prot & decrease carbs. Usually that combined with extra exercise that happens in summer, the weight falls off. Not this time. Almost like some sort of glue...like a spiders web that you get tangled in. Desperate to get the sticky web off your face...doing some crazy dance & flapping your arms..lol.

I haven't been on spark in ages. So I'm back on here to do some watching of what I'm eating. It's possible I have been eating too many calories. SUCKS that I have to work even harder than before. A bit depressing

    I'm glad to see you back! Menopause really does a number on us. Try not to get discouraged. I can eat the same amount of calories every day, and it does nothing with my weight, but if I decrease my carbs I lose. It's harder to burn them off with menopause. Good luck with your efforts.

    Glad you are back---and age has something to do with it, too--but it is possible!

    It does kind of stink that post menopause .......... One has to work the old butt off to shed like before the end happened! Not fun but at least you are not in this boat alone ............... You and I CAN do it! emoticon
