Why cant I lose weight through Menopause


Posted by hopeful123

I feel so frustrated after losing 30 pounds my weight is going back up. I have tried Weight Watchers even Atkins and it is still slowly climbing. Is anyone else having this problem. I need to talk to others that are going through this time in life. I am 54 years old.

Thank You in advance.

Sigh. I really feel your pain. Most of us goddesses have tried various diets with success, only to put the weight back on again. The best one we have found is the Girlfriend Guilt Diet - we eat half portions for each meal, balanced carbs, protein, and veggies. We also walk at least 2 miles a day, lift weights, and drink at least 64 oz water. Then we have to report via email or phone each day how successful we were. It makes us do it! And still it's hard. Total bummer. I bought some bigger clothes to feel a little smaller. Good luck and keep us posted.
