" … in our younger days, women tend to carry more weight on their hips and thighs – the whole preparing for childbirth thing. While men tend to develop the classic 'beer guts.'It explains a lot of the "why" for some people, including me. Do you suppose progesterone cream would help? [Oh, there I go again, searching for an easier, softer way.]
As we go into the menopause years, we experience higher levels of male hormones – particularly in proportion to the declining production of female hormones.
This often results in women then developing their own 'beer gut'-like stomachs – in other words, we start to put on more girth around the waist."
Seriously, I'm going to quit worrying about it. [I've heard that stress causes weight gain. hehehe] I'm confident that as I continue to eat healthfully and exercise regularly, I'll see results all over. Some places are more stubborn than others. And if the inches don't fall the way I want them to ... well, I can always take up sewing again.
Lots to do today, and not much more to say. I hope you fill your weekend with fun company, healthful food and lots of water. That's what I'm going to do!
