Morning all - I am 56 years old and have been trying over the last few years to lose some stubborn weight that has crept on post menopause. I would welcome any advice from ladies of a certain age who have found a way to do this - I probably need to lose about 10lbs to one stone. It is also to do with my shape - I would love to flatten my stomach (even a bit!). I do think I am quite healthy... I don't overeat too much but probably snack too much as I have a busy job as a primary headteacher. I enjoy relaxing with a glass of wine with my husband and try to keep this to weekends. I swim a few times a week and walk my dog most days (though my husband does the really long walks). There is a gym at the pool and I do do some stretching exercises - but again, if anyone has any advice re good exercises that would be great - many thanks. Determined to work hard between now and Christmas to make a difference.
