Doctor's Orders: Menopause, Weight Change, and Feminism

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
“I am still in despair over losing my identity,” said a blog comment in a discussion about post-menopause weight gain. Instead of recovering an identity, for some of us, as women age, our attitudes toward fitness may require forging new identities. But the challenge in coming to desire fitness, post-menopause, is a project of actually changing my desires. Habituating a good practice can lead to a change in our appetites, so that instead of losing our identities, we may become the characters that we set goals to be.
