Aging! Too bad we all have to do it.
During my 20's and 30's I was always on the skinny side. Ate whatever I wanted and never gained anything. I did not weigh over 100 lbs until about thirty.
I am now in my later 40's and I have put on atleast 10 pounds in the last few years. Every one of those pounds came uninvited and each, I am certain, have no intention of ever leaving. Meanwhile, I don't overeat (I don't skip eating, but I don't have huge portions). I exercise and I am very active. In fact I was sick last winter and hardly ate for four days and lost only 1 measly pound.
For me, I am convinced it is aging. Maybe some hormone is released as our change of life nears that changes our metabolism? Further proof that nature has little respect for the mature women.
One good thing about carrying around a few extra pounds is that pads our faces a little bit and hides the saggy, wrinkly, thing that gets going around the midforties.
