Menopause and Weight Gain

    1. Yes, I agree that portion size is a tough one. Some people can’t eat when they are stressed………..others can’t stop eating. Seems like it is one extreme or another. I eat when I am bored! I need to be busy!

  1. Just the idea of dieting makes me hungry! I have yet to find my perfect eating style…I do a protein shake, I work out 60-90 minutes a day, I have lots of muscle, and I just cannot lose this damned weight! I have thyroid issue, and metabolic syndrome. Thanks for the tips!

    1. It is great that you have lots of muscle mass!!! I did do a blog post about boosting our metabolism. Apparently, the best way to do that is to do more weight bearing exercises. I did not know that, I thought the best way was to increase my aerobics. I am hypothyroid. I do find that there are times that I need to have my thyroid medicine tweaked.

  2. I think if we heat healthily and exercise, our body will attain the weight it naturally is supposed to be. I have never believed in deprivation, at any age.But we have to be healthy, as well as realistic about what’s possible.

  3. I am so glad I found you one day on the internet! I love your newsletters and I am in the process of reading your fantastic ebook on menopause. You have taught me a lot on menopause and I am very grateful. Weight gain is one of my problem since entering menopause. I do exercise everyday for at least 90 minutes and I cut down a lot on carbs and sugar. It made me feel better and seems to help me not gain weight. Thank you for all your insights on menopause and for sharing your knowledge, they are very helpful:) and I don’t feel alone anymore;)

    1. I am so happy to hear you find the information helpful! Sounds like you are on a good program of healthy eating and exercising. Leading a healthy life helps the mind, body, and soul. Circle back anytime for support. I am always here for you.

  4. Hi Ellen! Loved watching this video with your trainer! Totally on board with all that was said. Plus, I write down everything I eat and the calorie count. This plus daily exercise is what took off those muffin top pounds 🙂 it’s nice to recognize myself in the mirror again! Lol!!
