About Me: Male, 63, Glen Ellen, CA, member since Aug 2010
Hello, I'm a horse trainer in northern California. I also design and market luxury textiles. Two years ago, shortly after I entered menopause, I had my gallbladder removed. Since that time I have become overweight, and I never had a weight issue before the surgery. Neit
[More]her did I experience weight gain prior to or up to menopause at age 54. Now I have a gut like a beer swilling sailor on shore leave, and I am at my wit's end. My work with horses is energetic, vigorous, demanding, and exhausting. And I love my work. I'm physically active 14 hours per day. I do NOT have a thyroid issue, as I have been on replacement thyroid hormones for 20 years. In the 2 years since my gallbladder removal I have eaten less and gained more, and I wonder if someone can help/share the mystery/offer advice. Thanks to all!
