I've not yet hit menopause yet but there are others here who have and struggle w/ the weight issuses it can bring. But I can be here to be supportive as will others.

It's not impossible to lose weight during menopause.

You will just have to target your calorie intake very carefully and cut down on your food intake quite a lot more than before menopause, while still eating healthy and balanced. Not much room for empty (no-nutrition) calories.

Exercise will do wonders during menopause too,to prevent muscle loss which would otherwise make you look flabby. Your exercise routine (and it should be a very regular routine!) should include both cardio exercise and weight training.

What are your food intake and exercise like at the moment?
