If any of you are interested in a lengthy read, I found it helpful and there are specifics on what's called "midlife nutrition" information:

Thanks whiteangel4, that is basically what I've done too. No soda or sugary drinks, no processed food, lots of veggies, 2 servings of fruit each day, lean meats and healthy fats. I think that after 20 years of being part of the lowfat craze it is hard for me to get in enough healthy fat but these last couple weeks I've been diligent and I just don't crave sweets and junk anymore. The weight is coming off very slowly but I'm pleased with that because I'm not dieting, I'm just making healthier choices and exercising differently so it is not going to happen overnight.

I'm just glad to have found a group that can relate to the challenges of postmenopausal issues.

Welcome to the team. As we age it is harder to get the weight to go away. I have been happy with my progress but it has been long and slow. Gave up all soda and processed foods. Eat more fruits and veggies

Keep on track

Thanks Cheryl! I have been getting acupuncture too, helps my lungs a lot and mildly helps arthritis pain, just gotta keep going!

So nice to hear from you! Keep working on you, the investment is worth it!

Sorry to hear about your frustration. The body changes in ways we don't anticipate and seems to have a mind of its own.

I will say that even though I haven't solved my body's "problems" w/ this age & stage, acupuncture has helped to balance things in a way that medicine is just not capable of doing.
Nevertheless, I wish I had other helpful solutions for you... Still working on "me".

Wishing you the best in the coming year as you continue to work on health & fitness.

Hi, I'm new to the team and I'm very frustrated with menopausal weight gain and my inability to get it off. I have not been this heavy in over 20 years and I'm disgusted with myself. All of the things that used to work for me to lose weight no longer help at all and I am seeking new solutions.

I hope to learn and get support from this team and look forward to getting to know you. I already see a couple of familiar faces here!
