I know they are always saying that once you get into your 50's that it is harder to lose weight. I think a large part of that is this thing called menopause. Great googily moogily. I have been in such a mood the past few days. I just want to rip heads off. And this is NOT who I am. My husband has been timidly coming in the door at night to try to feel out the situation before stepping all the way through the door. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if one of these times he comes in waving a bag of Oreo's and if I bark he will throw the cookies in and make a fast retreat.
I ordered some Estroven and that should be here tomorrow. I am hoping that will help ease some of the menopausal symptoms I am dealing with. The sweats have been brutal...and especially with living in Alabama. Yikes...spontaneous combustion anyone? I do not remember the last time I slept through the night. So of course that means I deal with fatigue a great deal of the time.
Is there a reason the fat wants to stay attached to my body? I mean seriously...feeling like I do I don't even want to be in my own skin so why would the fat want to hang around? With menopause I can break into a sweat and increase my heart rate just sitting here typing out a blog post. No workout clothes or exercise gear required. All is provided by the fleeing estrogen that is the only thing that doesn't want to stay with this body.
I can't be sure because menopause has also swiss cheesed my brain...but I'm pretty sure puberty was easier.
