|I did not blog very much in 2012 because I was going through a lot with my physical and mental well being.2012 was not a good year for me as far as my weight was concerned. I went into post -menopause and packed on 15 pounds. I also started Bio-Identical hormone replacement therapy. I have also had major, major issues with my hair!
Once I went into post menopause, everything started going to hell, quick! When my hormone levels plummeted things went haywire. It seems like my metabolism slowed wayyy down. I also believe by getting on the plant based hormone replacement therapy, that also put some extra weight on me. So am not sure what my next move will be as far as coming up with a plan to try and lose the weight this year. I’m feeling a little overwhelmed right now.
I brought a Ninja food processor so I can start juicing this week. My hair has also been a source of stress, as it has been thinning a lot over the last 12 months. Again, I believe a drop in my hormone level caused a lot of my hair to start falling. I have started on a DHT blocker and Saw Paletto Extract to see if that will help with the excessive shedding.
All this shit just started happened to me back-to-back. They don’t tell you about all that crap until you start questioning the doctors and saying “what the hell is going on”! Oh the joys of getting old.
Well, I’m trying to focus on the weight loss and take my time about what would be the best approach for someone my age. I have hundreds of dollars worth of clothing, I have got to fit back in!! I have stopped shopping for apparel until I address the excess weight. I’m trying to remain calm and not get stressed out so much over the smallest things, so I can stop the stress eating. I know that’s one of the hurdles I have to overcome right now.
