Well done! You look great! I'm pre menopausal and struggled to lose weight these past 2 years. I've been fasting (5:2) these last 7 weeks and running/cycling. I look and feel so much better.

Are you still losing, or maintaining now? I'm after tips! (Also 53 and post-meno here, doing IF and trying to get the last 5kg off ...)

Well done you look fab.

I put on some weight during some treatment I had which put me straight into menopause and it's been hard to shift it.

Normally I'd be able to loose weight fairly easily and I was shocked how tough it was to even shift a few lbs.

I've had HRT sat on the side for almost a week which they say I have to take. But I'm scared to incase I put on weight again.

I'm 47, perimenopausal and really struggling to lose consistently - started HRT 4 months ago. Managed to drop 15 lbs doing a meal replacement diet, walking and eating 800 cals a day, but swiftly got bored when I plateaued. I mean, who maintains on 800 cals a day!

My DH hates me doing IF as he says my breath could floor an elephant. I am back in the mode of idly eating whatever I want, slowly putting the stone I lost back on and wondering why it was so easy to lose 3 stone when I was younger eating 1500 cals a day - I've done it loads of times.

You look fabulous by the way! Smile Flowers

@ShitStrategy I did lighter life lost weight and kept most off but doing this really changed my shape and energy levels - I didn’t do HRT as I did acupuncture and I had good success
