Hi guys !! I'm a fabulous 48 yr old female, fighting fatness ferociously ! :D

Aside from that I'm happily celebrating the disappearance of "Aunt Flo" -- for good !!! Been 14 months & I'm presuming that THAT phase is finally over. Call me weird, but I am soooooooooooo happy about it. No more irregularities, no more debilitating cramps, no more "mood playground" (normal people have mood swings -- I staked claim on the WHOLE playground :dizzy:). Kinda like a freedom of sorts.

Hope all have a wonderful Wednesday & rest of the week !! Just wanted to stop by & say "Hey !" :wave:

I have to say - I envy you! I am almost 45 and anxiously awaiting the day I can say I have "made it through and I am done!" I am so ready to be FREE!!

I won't breathe easiest UNTIL the 25th month has passed. Good friend of mine thought SHE was done, but after 17 mos of presumed "freedom," she got a BIG surprise for the following 3 mos. :fr: :shrug:

Yeah, gotta watch out for those sneaky little boogers - they usually hang back and lull you into a false sense of security then, as soon as you go blow 6 months clothing budget at Victoria's Secret.....................SURPRISE :lol:

Bummer ! :( Just when I find a new friend, they want to be moving away -- wonder if I should change my deodorant. :(





JUST KIDDING !! Never actually lived in NC, have visited Charlotte & have friends who live in Franklin.

Hi gang :
I am wondering if my peri-menopause experience is rather common or am I just a weirdo ?? :D

I am 47, 48 in January. 2 years ago after not having any cramping for more than 25 years my period came complete with cramps. I thought this so odd, as I had not had them since my 20's !!!!! Then the night sweats started coming, where I would get up in the middle of the night to change my night shirt as was drenched in sweat. Also after more than 20 years of having a 35-80 day cycle, it started coming like clockwork !!!!!!!!!!

Now, last month I was 2 weeks late, so now I am not sure when it will come back, should be due tomorrow.

Are all these strange fluctuations kind of normal, or is this just me ??
HELP !!!

:hug:
