I'm 66 and 10 years past menopause. This is the first time I have ever lost weight on purpose. The other times it was spontaneous due to pregnancy or traumatic emotional shock. I'm not having any problems with it at all. As long as I eat mostly whole foods and keep my calories in the correct range, it seems to be coming off like clockwork. I even have my occasional spike days and unhealthy treats. Usually, I try to keep my protein under 15%, my fats under 30% and the rest complex carbs. Since I never tried losing before, I don't know if it's harder or not. I just know that it's working. And, for the record, during perimenopause, I didn't have any of the normal symptoms. I started having severe anxiety attacks when I hit 50, and didn't associate it with menopause. I had no idea that was my only symptom (or that it even WAS a symptom) until I went through menopause at 56 and the attacks stopped within a year.

Hara Hachi Bu! The problem is, when do you know you are? LOL!
Calories are the little buggers that get into your wardrobe at night and sew your clothes tighter.
