I am a 56 year young grandmother with arthritic knees and hypertension. I also run a very busy kitchen so food tasting is part of my job. I've battled weight problems my entire life but was always able to lose weight when I really tried. Since menopause, I've been unable to lose anything. I've tried Atkins, Weight Watchers, TOPS, South Beach, & Calorie Counting . . . with no luck. Recently I bought the book "The Glycemic Revolution." It seems to make sense so I thought I'd give it a try . . . Glad to see there are others out there trying this with me! Good Luck All!

Post-menopause weight loss
Alisister,

I have some 5 pound hand weights & some 5 pound ankle weights . . . should I use these while walking do you think??? Or just do some repetitions daily?? I've never done weight training before hmmm, let me look into this! Thanks, by the way. I need all the help I can get. The pain is something I've lived with for a long time . . . I try not to let it get in my way of healthy living!!!

Post-menopause weight loss
I'm in the same boat . . . recently completed natural menopause . . . now I must work hard to lose each ounce. I also have to work at it EVERY DAY. Exercise helps but I have arthritis of the knees so even walking hurts.
This post is probably not much help for you but at least you know there are others out here working on the battle!
I plan to not give up on this eating plan . . . just may have to keep tweaking it to keep the pounds coming off. I'll keep you posted!

fatsecret members' average weight loss
Did anyone notice . . . On the fatsecret home page there is a small graph entitled: Fatsecret Members' Average Weight Loss? Apparently it's based on actual member weigh-ins. Well, the G.I. Dieters seem to be in the lead this week.

New kid on the block
Moselle,

I too am losing very slowly . . . 2.5 pounds in 3 weeks. I tried for a pound a week but the weekends are killers for me. I refuse to give up . . . I really like this eating plan and I have so much more energy than I've had with other plans!
As for protein, I eat mainly peanut butter, legumes (I love pea soup & lentil soup -- I make it in the crock pot), fish, chicken, and lots of ground turkey (I use this in place of ground beef in many recipes -- it makes a great chili). Low fat cheese is good also sprinkled in lasagna or over wheat pasta . . . protein is not one of my problems. My biggest problem is portion control. I try to make my food ahead and portion it out so that I don't overeat in one sitting.
Thank you for requesting to be my buddy! Losing weight is always more fun when we can work as a team.
Try some different forms of protein . . . do you like tofu?
Don't give up . . . we can do this!Wink
