Menopause midriff

  • 0

She is attractive, slim and fit; the picture of good health. That’s what you see when you look at Nancie Kalin. But, like many women of a certain age who worried about their weight (Yes, you know who I’m talking about), she is struggling with the last, stubborn 15 pounds.

Kalin has always had a wonderful metabolism, slim figure and never any weight issues. Then, something about her body changed, or rather, wouldn’t. Those 15 miserable pounds wouldn’t go away, no matter how hard she tried.

“I was accustomed to eating anything I wanted, anytime I wanted,” Kalin said. “That coupled with a very active workout schedule meant I could count on a low weight. Until menopause.”

The extra weight settled on her mid-area around her stomach and wouldn’t budge. Kalin bumped up the cardio, spent more time at the gym and continued to be baffled when her body wouldn’t respond.
