I am really struggling.  I am 55 and have been able to keep a desirable weight until about the last year.  I work out five days a week, two days in a boot camp class and one day in a body pump class, the other two days I run on the treadmill, usually about 2 miles.  I eat about 1500-1600 calories a day and my weight has steadily climbed the last year.  I am up about 10-15 lbs.  YUK...and HELP!!

Ah the joys of being over 50 and weight gain. Menopause can be the cause but you should check with your Dr to make sure nothing else is going on.

Hi....sounds like you are doing everything right....Have you had your thyroid checked...that can cause weight gain....I know as we age our thyroid can change and that will affect our weight....Hugs, Ruth
