Heather’s Menopause Makeover Story
I am 38 and lost 52 pounds. Yipee!!! I went from a size 14 to a 4! I proudly strutted myself into my high school reunion knowing I weighed just a couple of pounds less than I did when I graduated!
I had a total abdominal hysterectomy at the age of 29 – my doctor left one ovary to keep me from going through menopause. Six months later, I was back in surgery to remove a large cyst.
Two months after that, the cyst had returned and the ovary was removed just before my 30th birthday. An estrogen patch was slapped on me in the recovery room and I was on estrogen therapy for 5 years.
The weight gain seemed unstoppable and I became miserable. I did not want to go anywhere or do anything.
Then I found Staness’ Menopause Makeover – this changed my world! Her words made me realize that even though I was young, I did not have to PAUSE!
It took time, but I have found myself again! I have more confidence and even made my way to my 20th high school reunion this past fall!
Thank you Staness for showing me the way to gain strength I never thought I had!
PS: Here are the before and after pics I promised…you can see that my sweet little family has reaped the benefits of your program. I cannot thank you enough for the motivation, tools, and support!
BTW – The after pic was taken before my son’s first band concert. He has struggled with asthma since pre-school and has been doing so much better!
I am a much happier person than I was in July of 2010! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours!!!CONGRATS Heather – you are truly an inspiration! You did it! Me-No-Pause! Wahoooo!
