I'm 51, have been perimeopausal for years, have gained over 50 lbs in 5 years, ashamed of how I look and I just feel bad most of the time emotionally and physically I have pain in my back, legs and feet. But I know I can make choices every day that can and will make me healthier and happier. One of those choices is to not listen to those well-meaning people who tell me it's my hormones and that there's not much I can do about it. Other choices include sticking more closely to a primal/paleo/low-carb diet and walking more every day. I am strong. I can take back control of myself. I can feel better.

I just keep gaining and gaining! I menopaused at 40 and I haven't had a period for 3 years. My waist used to be 28inches, now it's more like 33. My arms look bigger too! And my shorts are getting tight.

I am also on dialysis. So I really need to watch my water weight. I have reached an all time high of 5kg water weight gain this weekend and I am frantic! There is no running away from it, I am getting fat!

I know what I have to do and I keep trying but nothing seems to be working! My weight keeps going up and up. Help!
