Menopause marks a significant phase in a woman’s life, bringing about transformative changes that can often seem daunting. It’s a period characterized by hormonal shifts that can lead to various physical and emotional challenges, including weight gain. However, with the right guidance and support, navigating through these changes and achieving significant weight loss is entirely possible. In this blog post, we’ll explore the inspiring journey of Anu, a client of TRINITY Transformation, who successfully lost 1-2 stone (around 14-28 pounds) during her menopause transition, and how our unique approach to menopause weight loss can help women over 40 achieve similar results.

On our most recent episode of the Fit Over 40 Podcast, TRINITY co-founder Rob Birkhead delves into the details of Anu’s story, so you can go ahead and listen to that here.

The Challenges of Menopause Weight Loss

Many women over 40 find that losing weight becomes increasingly difficult as they approach menopause. This can be attributed to hormonal imbalances, slower metabolism, and changes in body composition. The traditional advice of “eat less and move more” often falls short, leaving many feeling frustrated and stuck.

Introducing Anu and Her Transformation

Anu’s story is a beacon of hope for many facing similar struggles. Before joining our program, Anu weighed about 80 kg and struggled with self-esteem issues, knee and feet pain, and a growing resignation towards accepting her weight gain as an inevitable part of ageing. However, Anu’s journey with TRINITY Transformation and the Fit Over 40 Private Coaching turned her life around.

The TRINITY Approach to Over 40 Weight Loss

Low-Impact Strength Training (LIST)

One of the pivotal changes in Anu’s routine was the incorporation of Low-Impact Strength Training (LIST). This approach focuses on building lean muscle mass without putting undue stress on the joints. It’s particularly effective during menopause, as it accommodates the body’s changing needs, ensuring exercises are both safe and effective.

Dietary Adjustments

Anu also overhauled her diet with our guidance, cutting down on processed carbs and sugars that are known to exacerbate menopause symptoms and contribute to weight gain. Instead, she increased her protein intake, which is crucial for muscle building and maintaining a feeling of fullness, helping to reduce overall calorie intake without the sensation of starving.

The Results

The transformation Anu achieved is nothing short of remarkable. She dropped from 80 kg to 60-61 kg and went from a dress size 16 to a size 10. Beyond the numbers, Anu regained her confidence, eliminated knee and foot pain, and rediscovered a zest for life, engaging in activities like salsa dancing, padel, yoga, and pilates with newfound confidence.

Beyond Physical Transformation

Anu’s journey also highlights the importance of a holistic approach to health. Alongside physical changes, addressing mental health through therapy for anxiety and trauma played a crucial role in her overall well-being.

The Role of Support

A key component of Anu’s success was the personalized coaching and community support she received from TRINITY. This tailored guidance and the encouragement from a like-minded community were instrumental in helping her navigate the challenges of menopause weight loss.


Anu’s story is a powerful testament to the effectiveness of the TRINITY Fit Over 40 Private Coaching. Her success underscores the importance of a personalized approach that includes Low-Impact Strength Training, dietary adjustments, and a strong support system. It serves as an empowering example for women over 40, showing that with the right strategy and support, achieving a healthier, happier life during and after menopause is not just a possibility but a reality.
