If your belly fat is increasing then you may be Oestrogen Dominant – if you are, then here’s your New Year read from MyMT™.

For most of us, the New Year is a time for rest, relaxation and reflection. You know, thinking about the year that’s been and what you might want to do differently this year. I know myself that mid-life is a time when our health can change so rapidly as this happened to me as well. 

So, if you are thinking of setting new health goals for 2020 then I congratulate you. And if this is sorting out your menopause-related weight gain, poor sleep, low energy and sore joints, then I invite you to allow me to help you.

When menopause was messing with my sleep, blood pressure, cholesterol, weight and sore joints, I knew from my healthy ageing research, that this was the pathway towards deteriorating cardiac and metabolic health as I got older. I was so concerned about this because most of us have seen this happen to our mother’s generation too. It can be so confusing to know how to turn around your health and weight in menopause, and believe me, if you aren’t sleeping either, then this alone makes menopause weight loss problematic and changes our health as we age.

If you’ve had a busy year and didn’t quite get to my newsletter blogs, then in this special NEW YEAR NEWSLETTER, I will share my new and updated TOP 3 MENOPAUSE BLOGS with you. 

This first one, explains why, when you aren’t sleeping, your menopause weight increases by as 2kg a week. Yes, that much! And it happened to me as well.


Surprisingly, so many mid-life women (nor Exercise Professionals or Nutritionists) don’t understand that menopause weight loss has nothing to do with diet or exercise, but all to do with sleeping all night and managing hot flushes, night sweats and a condition called Oestrogen Dominance.

This condition refers to the increased storage of excess oestrogen in fat cells as many of us go through menopause. Many of these excess oestrogen compounds come from our environment, food choices and even medicines and HRT. When fat cells store excess oestrogen, then this hormone dominates in comparison to progesterone. The result can be blood sugar chaos, fatigue, a changing waist-line and (as I experienced too), heavy, bloated breasts, and a sore neck to go with it). Please have a read of this fascinating blog when you can. It will change your understanding of weight loss.

Success Stories

I so loved helping Maree turn around her mid-life health this year. When she sent me the email below, I was so excited for her. She is on the right path towards her healthy ageing now that she has lost weight and is sleeping and her sore joints and muscles have gone away.

Please don’t forget about my January intake and SALE for the weight management Transform Me programme which has commenced already – so many women are already underway and I’m posting into my coaching group as well.

The programme is online and all you do is to put in the promo code JANUARY20 to access your NZ$50 savings. This price won’t be repeated. If you need help to turn your goals into action and hold yourself accountable then MyMT™Transform Me is ON SALE all of January and I would love you to join me. Have a listen to this video where I explain what the programme entails. You also receive my FOOD GUIDE, Restore your Joyful Joints module and my powerful Mind your Mindfulness module as well. That’s another $100 of value for you. 

Join me on my 2020 Transform Me programme as soon as you can – women are already underway with this fabulous programme that I’ve designed just for women in menopause or post-menopause. I want you to feel like others who joined me last January too. Lydia , a nurse from Australia, joined my programme this time last year and once she learnt to sleep all night the weight loss started to happen as well.

If you want a scientifically evidenced lifestyle programme that teaches you the step-by-step lifestyle strategies to thrive in menopause and beyond and you want to turn around your health and your weight without all the endless exhausting exercise, menopause supplements or diets that aren’t designed for our weight loss as we age, so you can enjoy the next 30 years feeling healthy again, then I invite you to come on board. 

To confirm your spot please put the promo code JANUARY20 into the sales page here. This will get you $50NZ off which makes the programme and my private coaching, only $87NZ (AU$77) a month for 3 months or UK£45 a month for 3 months.

You can also start the programme any time between now and January 31st, 2020. The very first two 45 minute webinars you hide-away and listen to, are called SLEEP All Night and Are You Oestrogen Dominant? – in these I explain what is really going on in menopause and most importantly, you discover my powerful strategies to resolve these issues. Then in 2 weeks time, you receive your next module. That’s how it works – so you don’t feel overwhelmed with too much information at once.  

Once you purchase the programme you work through it at your own pace, starting any time from now until the end of January, 2020. You can take as little as three months, or if your busy life gets in the way, then you can take longer, by staying on for a small monthly admin fee of only NZ$12.50. There is no pressure to complete it in the 12 weeks! 

I can’t wait for you to join me.
