Anyone else struggling like me..... Always been okish with weight but since hitting 50 I am spreading fast and can't loose weight. Soooo frustrating!!!
Middle age spread!!: Anyone else struggling... - Weight Loss NHS
Sadly for us, our Basic Metabolic Rate ( BMR) slows right down with age.
Between age 48-60 I slowly gained 2 stone... even though I thought I was eating the same way as always. Since then, I have managed to lose that excess weight, by planning and logging what I ate/drank and counting the calories. ( like many successful slimmers, I used myfitnesspal.app) and I also started to walk more.
It was a slow but steady process and took me a year to lose 30lbs. I now have a BMI of 23 and have maintained it for six months, give or take a 1-3lb fluctuation, which is normal.
Believe me, giving all my size 16s to charity and buying new size 12 has made me feel ten years younger, honestly! AND YOU WILL TOO 😊
