    So what works best for everyone? What this app has taught me is that I was eating too many calories and being lazy. Honesty is rough! I was eating healthy but constantly nauseous. Eating helped. Hhhmmm. Premenopausal hormones? Anyway my eyes are now open. Let the weight loss begin.

    I have had the same experience with the app. Most of my life I could eat what I wanted without much consequence. If I did happen to gain weight, it would come off without hardly any effort. While that started to change in my 30s, the pregnancies in my late 30s and early 40s definitely opened my eyes to how things had changed. Even then, I still didn't realize how off track I was with calories until using MFP!

    While I haven't had the hunger issue, perimenopausal hormones have been crazy! I actually went to the hospital with chest pains, racing heart, dizziness, etc last fall. Turns out it was hormones! Since I stopped the soda (actually, that was shortly before that episode), and started being a little more careful about what I was eating (less sugar), that has all gotten much better. Now to bring the calories into a more reasonable range (we're ranchers; steak, potatoes, eggs, gravies, bacon...they're staples here!) and get in shape to take some of the strain of the extra weight and fat off of this body that's served me so well for nearly 5 decades!

    Feel free to add me I am going to be 50 in 6 weeks, I have a 13yr old daughter and a sort of supportive hubby. I haveOA in both knees and hips so mobility and exercise can be problematic along with the problems of being a lady of a certain age. I have always been overweight it has yo yoed over the yrs gone up more than down. I am determined to lose weight and keep it off. I have lost 33lbs and have another 50+ to go

    I will be 50 this year with two teenage boys. I'm working on losing the same 15-20 pounds for probably the third time. I have a trip in March and I want to feel good in a swimsuit. I'd love to connect for tips and motivation!
