Don't give up on losing weight and staying fit
Postmenopausal weight gain and loss of muscle tone aren't inevitable—you just need to work a little harder.
Remember when you could eat whatever you wanted (within reason) and you still looked great in a bathing suit? As long as you ate a generally healthy diet and stayed active, you were able to keep your weight in check. Now those pounds stick much more stubbornly, and it seems like no matter how much you exercise and how healthy your diet, you just can't take them off.
