My last post talked about weight gain in perimenopause and some of the reasons behind it...obviously there can be more especially your emotional relationship with food but that's a whole separate blog. Yes it's hard to shift weight as we get older but please don't let that make you think you can't - you certainly can it just takes a different approach and tweaking what may have worked for you in the past.

Preparing for My Second Spring

Preparing for My Second Spring

I conceived the idea of a website about the menopause early in February 2013. What a coincidence that it has taken me nine months to bring it to fruition and launch on 18th October 2013.

During my research, I learnt lots about the menopause, and here are some key findings:

  • Menopause is complete when we have had no periods for 12 months.
  • Most symptoms take place during perimenopause - the 4-8 years before menopause.
  • Only about 10% of women will need medical treatment for menopause symptoms.
  • 100% of women will benefit from positive lifestyle adjustments in areas such as diet, exercise and stress management.
  • If we have unresolved life issues we may have a more difficult menopause.
  • Osteoporosis is known as the silent disease - it comes upon us without warning symptoms.

During the website's 9 month gestation I also learned a lot about computers, website design, affiliate marketing, search engine optimisation, blogging and persevering. So if you've got any inkling to pursue a business, follow a dream or start again in any way, go ahead and take the first step today! You'll find lots of support here.
