“I’ve got so much more energy and feel back in control of my symptoms. It kinda feels unbelievable really.” – (Andrea, Australia)

Meet Andrea – she loves painting. This is her sitting on the steps outside her studio where she lives in Australia. When Andrea first contacted MyMT™ she was exhausted, frustrated and confused about what was happening to her energy levels in menopause. As she said, “Finally I had arrived at a point in my life, […]

“I was so challenged in my beliefs about exercise. I had no idea I was in peri-menopause.” [Sue, New Zealand)

This is Sue. She is here with me after a presentation in beautiful Northland in New Zealand. As a leading Personal Trainer, Teacher and Athletics Coach for her local community, Sue had invited me to do some presentations for women whom she knew would benefit from learning about menopause.  For over 20 years Sue has […]

“After my hysterectomy my weight ballooned. Wendy’s programme was a revelation.” [Elaine, UK].

My mind has been on Sheffield in the United Kingdom this week. With the news that it is going into Alert Level 3 restrictions due to an upsurge in coronavirus cases, I’ve been thinking of the women who attended my presentation there, only in March this year. Elaine was one of them. I loved my […]

Meet the fabulous Magician, Romany Romany.

Her book was sitting unopened on my Kindle. I had emailed her, curious about whether I was using her name correctly. It seemed a bit odd that she had the same surname as her first name. “I’m not telling you” she emailed back. “You have to read my book.”  So I did. I opened it […]

“It’s funny what you said about not eating enough because I have more muscle. Over 8 weeks, I’ve increased my intake and I’ve lost 5kg and my thyroid is better. Thank you!” [Julie, NZ]

When I founded the New Zealand personal training industry in the early 1990’s, I never imagined that I would, one day, be guiding some of New Zealand’s leading Personal Trainers through menopause. Nor did I ever imagine that I would be advising exercise professionals to reduce their exercise and for those who are leaner and […]

“I felt like I was running on adrenaline yet was totally exhausted. Some days it just felt like I was trying to pull myself through quicksand.” [Aleta, Australia]

“The year 2019 was a year where I felt totally uncomfortable within myself at 54 years of age. Stressful events, an all-consuming full-time job and life-threatening family illnesses had caused me to feel like I was constantly on the run and waiting for the next wave of something terrible to happen. I felt like I […]

“I was so sleep deprived and feeling down all the time. Now, my symptoms are gone!” – Rachel, Auckland, NZ

When you have a busy family life and you’ve  been active for years, but menopause arrives and you begin to feel exhausted, it can be really confusing. Rachel felt like this too, and as someone who has worked as part of a collaborative team for years leading community learning, Rachel is a woman who is […]

VIDEO: Meet Wendy!

“Who are you?” she screamed into the email that arrived in my in-box this week. “Why are  you sending me a newsletter? I don’t even know you.”  I replied saying that she must have taken my menopause symptoms quiz and therefore, she gets my free weekly newsletter. “Ah, I didn’t realise” she said. “I never watched […]

“I was at my wit’s end with my menopausal weight gain.” [Michaela, Canada] – and she shares her Beetroot Burgers with you too.

Ontario in Canada is hot and humid at the moment. I know this because Michaela told me so. Living in New Zealand, Canada seems a long way away, but the beauty of the MyMT community, is that we are all part of the ‘global village’. With grown-up triplets, Michaela has been busy for years, but […]
