HOT FLASHES - WTF!

The last two days have been non stop hot flashes... When my mom went through menopause I used to think "What's the big deal?  Take your sweater off.. Open a window..." Ummm, not like that... For me, I feel like someone put me in a sleeping bag with a hair dryer. I am immediately trapped, panic- like feelings come over me... I want to run from the room screaming and there is no escape! Ok, maybe a little dramatic, but it is intense... and sweaty... and WHY so many now?

The body is a weird vessel.

And life goes on...

The step streak continues, the MFP streak continues, I've lost inches and 10.1 lbs since Oct 12. I have 35.1 lbs to go to get to my goal weight of 155. I continue to eat *mostly* whole, unprocessed foods and *mostly* under 150 carbs per day...

Eventually I'll get where I want to be.

Yikes, that sounds awful!
I've heard that evening primrose oil (supplement) can help with hormonal balance during menopause and perimenopause. Maybe you could try it? I take it myself as I figure I'll be hitting these times soon.

Good luck! Stay cool, if you can.
