In my opinion and personal experience, absolutely!
I was overweight in my 20s and while it was tough to do, I managed to take the weight off with a lot (too much?) exercise and watching my diet.
Now, four kids and many years later, I find myself in the same oversized boat again. This time however I am unable to exercise those pounds away. I’ve been running, working out, and watching my diet but those extra pounds sitting on my rear end right now don’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon.
Long story short….I haven’t lost a SINGLE pound since coming home from the hospital with baby #4.
I am beyond frustrated.
Losing weight after age 30 (almost 40) just plain sucks.
The downside for me is that not only do I LOVE bread but I don’t really like meat at all.
Oh this should be so much fun! 🙁
Now your turn gang, have you found that it’s harder (or maybe easier?) to lose weight as you have gotten older? Tell me your secrets, ideas, thoughts or just overall “I hear ya!” in the comments below.
I’m off to stare longingly at a loaf of bread…….
