Give my regards to your DD for her sacrifice to be part of our armed forces. Big s to you too for peace in her decision.

To your tummy question: I have been reading a lot on estrogen lately and have found in my research that after menopause either natural or surgical, your bodies fat cells actually help manufacture estrogen for you and guess where this prominent fat is stored!! you guessed it in our ABS-yuck!!

I have been reading a book titled "Take Charge of the Change" by Pamela Smith (I found it at my Christian bookstore) to get some insight on this matter. I have been a dietaholic all my life and now find that my attempts to stay thin may have set me up for an even harder weight problem in these mid years There is a wide range of things we need to do in combination with each other- I haven't finished this book but I am excited about some of her findings and advice that I can still stay healthy through all this hormone havoc if I take care of myself. Bottom line that I have gotten so far is: Eating correctly, exercising (weight strengthening too) and correct nutrition as far as minerals, supplements etc.

Research is probably your best bet in finding some real solutions, I can't attest to whether her recommendations are the way to go but have found the information to be very thorough without strings attached if you know what I mean.

You are definitely not alone on this road, also, the ladies on the fitness board here have some great advice too if you want to post more questions for them.
