Thanks for query,
Menopause stage doesn't give this much weight gain.
First check your thyroid status.The weight gain due to hypothyroidism should be ruled out first.
if you have euthyroid status then stop eating sugar that will cut you calorie intake & continue your walking that will use you calorie.
