Since developing menopausal symptoms at 50, I find that keeping weight off my waistline has become more difficult. I try exercising at any time of the day, anywhere & everywhere (doing pelvic floor squeezes discreetly at traffic lights & yoga deep breathing when queuing in a shop/bank); rolling feet from heels to toes & pushing off the ground when out walking; taking longer routes through a park to a public library, thus enjoying nature, going an extra mile & avoiding traffic pollution on the High Street; and stretching leg muscles while waiting for a kettle to boil. The list is endless. I try to make exercise non-routine & interesting. In good weather, I practice tai chi & mindfulness in my back garden. As for food, I have to make more effort not to eat after 7.30 pm & avoid carbohydrates in the evening. I would be grateful for any tips on how to loose weight without getting bored, frustrated, hungry & grumpy, and stay positive, cheerful & happy.
