Weight Gain and Menopause
by Jibby Brown
(Ft. Wright, Kentucky, USA)
I am a 46 year old woman who is entering menopause. I am struggling with the fluctuation of my weight on a daily basis. I exercise, do weight training, take spin classes, and I watch what I eat all of the time.
I don't want to take HRT. My OB/GYN has recommended it and I have filled my prescription but would like to try other treatments before trying this controversial method.
No one knows enough about menopausal women and I am very tired and frustrated of hearing, "You're getting older; it's natural to have these problems."
This doesn't make it any easier when you get up for work every day and have to worry about whether or not your clothes will fit that day even though you worked out for an hour the night before.
I am desperate for someone to help me or at least try to help me. My personal trainer has given up on me because nothing he has put me on has worked. He is befuddled as I am.
