over 45 and not giving up yet

Now that I'm in the dreaded perimenopause, my weight gain has really changed. When I was younger, I could always tell I was putting on weight because my pants got too tight in the butt. That made me cut back. Then about 5 years ago I started putting the extra weight on the top of the hips and waist (where is my waist now anyway?). So I didn't even really notice until suddeny I had an extra 25 lbs. NOw in PT, I've lost 8 - but it's been a long slow haul. And...it doesn't really seem to be coming off my waist that much. I'm not sure where it's coming off (at least its coming off somewhere). Anyone else experiencing this? Will it ever come off my waist? Will I be a muffin top forever?

My problem is in the thighs

I have found that since I turned 40, eight years ago, loosing weight is much more difficult. I have lost 12 lbs. on PT since May but I can't seem to keep the momentum. I tend to slip once I see the scale stop plus I really like food. I don't eat mindlessly, I eat good stuff. I only eat what I like but too much and too often. Anyone have any suggestions to help me get back on track?

menopausal weight gain?

maybe it's menopause, but my weight gain is in my belly and even with lots of ab excercising I can't reduce the bulge. must start watching everything I eat - and hope that it works.

menopausal problems

Hi I am in perimenopause and would like to hear from real issues faced by women. Is it possible to maintain your weight. If so how- does it mean additional workouts, more weight exercises. What is an acceptable weight fluctuation. The skin elasticity goes down. Any help in this area as well especially in the face and neck area. Is it possible to be 50s and look 40s? or 30s? haha

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
