Re: Gaining weight after 45

For sure ...age has a lot to do with weight gain. I've always been thin ,and I am 15lbs overweight right now ( I'm 58). Our metabolism slows down . Just look around. I don't think you'll see that many thin over 50 year olds, unless they live at the gym and starve themselves.. I mean it IS possible to keep your weight down .,But you have to ramp up your exercise ,and at 58 I just don't have the same energy I had at 38 when I went to the gym every day and also did aerobics classes 3 days a week. Then I didn't have a problem staying at 114lbs. But I'm also in the middle of menopause and that doesn't help with the whole weight thing either.
