Post-menopausal after six live births and five miscarriages, losing weight can seem impossible. I know!

I've tried so many of the “latest and greatest” diet plans. Here are just a few:

  • Fast Metabolism Diet
  • Fitness for Life
  • Live the Life
  • Eat to Live
  • How to Lower Your Fat Thermostat
  • 4-Hour Body (Slow Carb – post-pregnancy version)
  • Ketogenic
  • Paleo
  • Zone Diet
  • Hypothyroidism Diet
  • Atkins
  • HCG Diet
  • Clean Eating
  • Cabbage Soup Diet
  • Cambridge Diet
  • South Beach Diet
  • Nutrisystem
  • Hollywood Diet
  • SlimFast
  • Ally
  • Intermittent Fasting
  • Sensa
  • Various Elimination Diets
  • Various Juicing Diets
  • Various Cleanses
  • General Low Fat
  • General Low Carb
  • General Starvation

Sometimes I lost weight. Sometimes I didn't. But always it wasn't a permanent solution.

Genetics, hormones, age, and pregnancy absolutely do take their toll on the body and they do impact weight loss. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!

But there is still hope! Now I'm finally losing weight the old fashioned way. Very, very slowly!
