Hi I’m Tara and I’m 47 years old. I hit menopause around 41 and have slowly gained weight and bloat since then. I’m December 2020 I reached my heaviest and I was so unhappy with what I saw in the mirror, I felt so bloated and uncomfortable, had no energy and couldn’t fit into my clothes.
It was time to take action so on the 4th January i started calorie counting and joined a fitness group for ladies over 40, that comprised of 20 minute HIIt style workouts daily.
Slowly I started to lose some weight but in 3 months I’d only lost 5lb and couldn’t see any real changes In the mirror. I was so disheartened and thought my body would never look the same in my late 40s.
