Hi Nicole and Welcome
You've done a great job, and congratulations on your 100lb loss. Thats wonderful!!
I have to agree with you about the starches and hot flashes. Im only 39, and started with the hot flashes the night of my 39th birthday(a year ago) But when Im eating properly and exercising, the incidence of hotflashes is almost gone! Every now and then it will come over me, and Im peeling off cloths, but for the most part, its much better. I went from 2-3 a week, to 2-3 a month.
Ive lost and maintained a 100lb loss for about 4 yrs now, Im working on the other 49ish that still has to go. Ive been struggling with it, but I think Ive finally made peace with my "inner fat lady" and this is a life change. I dont intend to gain it back....I just want it all gone! For good!
