I never had a problem with my weight until hitting age 45, and after I had a hysterectomy. I had been an active person all my life. I was a runner and worked out 3 to 4 times a week faithfully. I watched what I ate, but never really needed to be strict about whether I went out to eat with family or friends, snacked or had a drink on weekends. About four months after my hysterectomy I noticed that my energy had dropped considerably and my running and workouts were easier and easier to skip. After work, I found it easier to watch TV and go to bed early. I blamed my lack of motivation and energy on a hectic work schedule and my two teenage kids who had me running all the time! Then I noticed the weight gain. It was slow at first, two to four pounds a month, and I was quick to blame my weight gain on missing the running and exercise, so I made a renewed effort to get back into my workout routine. After two weeks of struggling to run and workout, but doing it faithfully, I was shocked to find that I had actually GAINED weight during this time! I was mortified, and wondered how this could happen! At this time, I also was noticing things happening to me that were new and a bit scary. My sleep was increasingly more difficult. I was waking off and on nightly in sweats and chills. I was moody and quick to snap at co-workers and family. I felt as though I was losing who I was, and didn’t like it a bit. During lunch with an old friend a few weeks later, I shared with her what was happening with my mind and my body. To my surprise, she smiled and told me she knew exactly what I was going through! My friend told me about Physicians Age Management Centers weight loss program and hormone replacement therapy. I cannot describe the relief I had when I called and scheduled a consultation to discuss my concerns. The staff were very supportive and developed a weight loss plan and hormone replacement plan that gave me back what I had lost. I lost 20 pounds on the program over two months! I am now on an exercise and diet plan that helps me maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle! My hormone replacement therapy was the second key to my recovery. I now sleep through the night without the sweats and chills. My moodiness is gone! My energy is back! I have myself back! Thank you Physicians Age Management Centers!!
