I am starting up after gaining 17lbs from changes in my body - perimenopause to menopause... argh! I am having trouble sleeping with the hot flashes during the night! Officially I will be weigh in on Thursday - but have already started (was suppose to be weigh in last week, but snow storm prevented the appt. from taking place) I am just worried these changes will affect my going through this... anyone else having the same problems? I cannot wait to officially start!
