Hello!! Just been in MFP for 10 days now. I am 51 years old. I had a rushed hysterectomy in 2007, so I really don't know if I am menopausal or not. I don't have hot flashes in the way I have heard them described, but I will say at 51 things are a-changing and not in a good way either!! LOL!! For one thing: metabolism is gone! Thinking this might be a good place for some support as I embrace this new change on my journey....

    When you get the hot flashes, you'll know something's up.

    At first, I wondered if I was becoming diabetic, lol. It was all the same stuff. Came and went and seemed especially bad after eating, especially carbs. I really, truly, thought I might be diabetic, lol.

    But no. I'm not becoming diabetic. I am becoming OLD.

    Anyway, if you have hot flashes, you'll know.:)

    How are you managing your weight loss? Anything seem particularly helpful or hurtful?

    Did you have a full hysterectomy?

    Hands down, the best weight loss advice I ever received was to read the Sexypants post: https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/1080242/a-guide-to-get-you-started-on-your-path-to-sexypants/p1

    It'll take trial & error to find what works for you. Logging is simple, but it ain't easy. Logging works.
