I don't think that the HRT is necessarily the cause for your weight gain. As one gets older , it becomes MUCH harder to lose weight. there is a reason why the term 'middle age spread' is there. This is due to changes in metabolism and also a higher incidence of insulin resistance. You can have yourself checked for this. While the gym is good, a strict diet is essential as well. You could ask DietDoc for help with this.
