In brief: Same as men

I don't know that they lose energy, but both men and women slow down in physical strength and activity for a variety of reasons.
Weight gain is one consequence of continued caloric intake and decreased activity. Lack of exercise leads to deconditioning and inability to do exercise which you may be describing as loss of energy.
