I have not yet hit menopause, but I lost most of my weight between 34 years old and 40 years old.
I hit MANY plateaus over the five years it took me to lose weight. In fact, I lost the first 60 quickly, then stalled, then lost 20 more, then stalled, then gained 20 back, then lost that again, then my trainer talked me into maintaining for a year to teach myself that I could do it and stop yo-yoing, then I finally lost the last 10.
It was all part of my journey, I think. I learned a lot with each plateau. The first one was to eat REAL food (which I know you are already doing, but it was amazing to me to not eat 100 cal snack packs and other "diet" crap) then it was bananas I had to cut out, then it was raising protein, lowering carbs, strength training, HIIT and more.
I set small goals, then would go super strict for 12 weeks at time to push myself to the next level. It gave each new protocol a chance to work, plus it really helped to focus me. When I go full out for a goal, its tough workouts, no booze, no cheats at all.
