It does seem to get a little more difficult to lose weight as we get older. Just one thought to take into account is are your possibly peri-menopausal. Because menopause is a time of life when womens' bodies definitely seem to expand no matter what height and weight tables you look at - I've read that it's apparently protective against osteoporosis. I've written a bit more about this at http://www.ditch-diets-live-light.com/menopausal-weight-gain.html

Exercise is also a must, so I'd recommend you read:

http://www.ditch-diets-live-light.com/exercise-fun.html maybe you can find a way to make exercise into play and fun and something you do with your children because that way you're also being a great role model for them and you can have a great bonding experience with them and get active at the same time.
