Anyone noticed that they gained/gaining weight while in pre-menopause?
I lost weight and kept it off and the last 2 weeks am gaining but still sticking to my plan on WW and training. What can it be caused from, I dont want to leave it and only do something when its too late - I need to keep it in check ASAP.

yes, i can totally relate. i think menopause does cause problems with the loss factor, i've been on program over a year, and although i can't blame all of it on menopause(cause i have strayed on occasion), but i was losing at a fairly regular pace and then nothing. and where on days or weeks when i did stray i would see a 1-2 pound gain, i was seeing as much as 5-7 pound gains(ridiculous!)and then it seemed impossible to get it back off. i finally did a one week very strict low carb thing(only one week,cause your body can't deal with more than that)and now i have had a significant loss, hopefully this has boosted my metabolism, and i'll continue to lose. hormomes are a hell of a thing!

So very frustrating..I gained about 8 lbs in a week..and that week went to gym 6x and kept to my WW points.
I am so frustrated as this is the first time I've struggled, if I cheated I would say *OK* but not.
Thanks.

Marcy in the past I did an 150 mile bike ride for charity and GAINED weight. It blew my MIND. How was that possible? Dont get discouraged- it will happen. I really have been under my points. I think I could have 23 or 24 a day and I am eatting what I want but am at about 18 a day. Which is where I will have to be closer to my goal. So I am not going to get used to eatting more so I can just get pissed later on when I cant have what I want. Keep at it!!! I have never been this big that I was not 9 months pregnant! So I am really aggravated with myself for getting to this point! Its feeling good to be putting it in reverse!!!!

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
