Welcome to the team Julie, we can all relate, after menopause it does get a bit more challenging to stay healthy. I am 58 also, have been in menopause for 3 years and it was really a shock when I realize how much more difficult it had become to take off pounds. However, with persistence and the development of good healthy, lifelong habits it does happen. Exercise is key, with strength training to build good muscles to up that metabolism! Good luck, do stop by the March Chat thread and join in on the conversation.

Hi, I'm Julie, I'm still finding my way around the community of Sparkpeople, any help would be appreciated. Anyway, I'm a 50 year old women, who has always struggled with my weight. Although I'm short, I carry it well, I'm about 25-30 lbs over weight. I've been a member of SP since 2008, but not consistent. It's been a rough winter this year and one day I realized that my clothes weren't fitting. 😞, so I'm back at it. I really need to get fit, as my husband and I are moving to Costa Rica this summer to do mission work. I REALLY need to get into my clothes, new ones are Not an option. Thanks!

Hello everybody! I'm Donna. I'm not new to SparkPeople, but I am looking for new friends to journey with! I'm doing challenges, but the weight loss is slow! I figured other ladies my age might be having the same problem. I'm 58 and have been post-menopausal for 8 years. HELP!
