Re: Gaining weight after 45

Misssy2: Yes, it's the hormones changing. Your body is producing more fat to hold on to the estrogen in the fat when your ovaries slow down the production of it. Estrogen loves fat. You do need to be careful what you eat because you don't want to end up being a diabetic either.

Are you on any meds? Sometimes those could make you gain weight, too.

Hang in there, you're not alone.
Try drinking more water and eating more salads and lean proteins.
