I haven't gone thru menopause yet, but at 42.5 years old, I'm fairly sure I'm on the cusp.

To supplement Meg's wise words, I'd like to recommend (once again!) the book by Pamela Peeke - Body for Life for Women. Even though I have read elsewhere detractions by BFL devotees that the new book is 'not simple enough' or 'too complicated' (etc) and yada yada - I found the book to be VERY informative. One critical element that applies in this instance is that the author breaks down women's weight issues by age - something the original BFL (which was written, IMO, more for the guys) did not cover. Most of us gals have learned by experience that losing weight becomes a different journey as we go through different stages of life, ya know?

Anyway - I'd recommend the book - try your local library - betcha they have it!
