I think it's a bit too late to call this middle-aged (68) but I'm absolutely appalled by the roll of fat around my middle, which seems to be getting bigger every day!!!

Has anyone had this too and managed to get rid of it - any diet and/or exercise considered!!

Still trying! I weigh a lot more than I did even a few years ago and I keep trying to eat less/more healthily (not helped by DH who always cooks enough for the whole village) and to get more exercise. The weight creeps down a pound or two but never as far as I'd like.

Not too bad--I still have a waist, but can feel a distinct restriction when cutting my toe-nails ! It has to stop.

I feel your pain. I manage to keep my weight down with the 5:2 diet and plenty of exercise. But I always used to have a flat stomach and recently.....I haven't. My waist's still there, but I'm very conscious of the fat gathering below.
