--- Quote from: Patricson on January 23, 2019, 06:57:44 am ---The reasons why it’s so hard can vary from person to person, particularly due to the role of genetics in weight gain.

A big reason for that age-related weight gain may be that your joints can no longer handle those long bike rides, daily jogs, or weekly pick-up basketball games. Sarcopenia, the loss of muscle tissue that occurs as a natural part of the aging process, starts around age 40. That process contributes to slower metabolism since muscle burns more calories than fat.
Reduced metabolism in older age is a major factor, as are changes in hormones  <link removed by moderator>  And lifestyle-related factors play a role as well. Older men and women may be more stressed and less physically able to exercise the way they used to when they were younger.

Dear CindyLou:
I am sorry that I apparently  HiJacked  your thread regarding weight loss.   
Now that I am all done with my commitment to officially welcome new members I will let you have your thread back so you can continue on with the Weight Loss discussion that you started. 

You had raised many good points and I can personally agree with much of what you stated about your own weight loss trials and tribulations...  I will be 39 years old in a couple weeks so the magic threshold of 40 years old   that you mentioned in your first posting on your thread here may be applying to me very soon if not already!

Thank you for starting this thread that will certainly be of interest to many here can identify will and will certainly want to post their responses....  so I am now handing your thread back to you!!!

Hugs and well wishes,

An individual approach is required for each person. Without this, there is no way, as well as without consultation with a specialist   <Off-Site LINK removed, not allowed>   and detailed diagnostics. If I were you, I would have done so.
