Hello everyone

I am 56 soon to be 57 and thought I was fairly knowledgeable about most things. All my life I thought menopause was freedom from periods and if unlucky suffering through severe hot flashes. Now I am learning the extremely hard way that I was totally dumb about menopause.

After being peri-men for years during which my weight gradually increased, all of the symptoms hit me big time during the last year. Previously I had the irregularity in my periods, an occasional night sweat (really not sweat but just a little overheated) with my biggest issue being insomnia.

The big awakening was when I realized I was having trouble thinking things through and remembering things. My ability to comprehend and write was impacted. A panicked doctor visit started my education.

I am better now not on prescription hormone therapy instead using vitamins and herbs. Now that I have more control of those issues I have decided that I have to address my weight.

I look forward to finding a few women who understand so that we can work together to support and motivate each other during the hard times trying to get fit again.
