How did menopause affect your weight?

I'm pretty sure I'm entering menopause.  I'm kinda happy about it, frankly, even though I'm only 40.  But I am worried about how I've seen it affect people's weight.  Would love to hear your stories.

Badly.  Dieting now to relose the 10lbs I gained since the mentalpause train crashed.

Heidi can you imagine how many pounds it would have been if you hadn't had surgery?

i've been going thru menopause for about 7 years now. And I'm in full blown for the last 3, "when will this hell end".
I know it was really hard to lose the weight once it started, and thanks to WLS i took it off, but it's really hard to maintain It's a battle every day just to stay at goal. I'm fighting with 7lbs all the time. Up and down, up and down. Not sure if that's the menopause or just me.

I started menopause early too, I'm 51 now, hope the end is near but i doubt it.

Thankfully I had my DS surgery POST menopausal. So it didn't affect mine.

I began menopause about the same time I had my DS. I don't think it affected my weight loss any, but I'm still having hot flashes, 8 years later...

I know a lady who swears she's still having them at 82.

(*sigh*)
