My Personal Pledge to you…

Are you feeling frustrated by your changing health in your menopause transition, even though you are exercising and eating well? Are you not sleeping or having lots of hot flushes or do you have sore joints and muscles and just feel kind of weary and exhausted all the time?

Well, you aren’t alone! Not only did I feel like that too (and put on lots of weight during peri-menopause), but from my doctoral research on women’s healthy ageing, I learnt that other women were the same too. Even for many, despite taking HRT and spending lots of money on short-term supplements (that was me too!). That’s why I decided to look into how to look after ourselves better during MENOPAUSE and what I learnt astounded me. As this is the time of our life that we are entering into our changing hormonal environment, then what we have done in the past to manage our health, energy and for many, our weight, no longer works. It’s also why I set up a 12 week online programme for women to learn what to do to transition through this time of life. I called it ‘My Menopause Transformation’ because that’s what it did for me. I know it will do the same for you as well. I invite you to listen to my video explaining all about it.”

“Hi Ladies – my name is Wendy Sweet and I welcome you to My Menopause Transformation™.  I never thought I would be setting up my two online programmes for women going through menopause, but with my own weight struggles and then listening to women during my Doctoral Studies on women’s healthy ageing, this led me to develop and deliver these fantastic on-line health improvement programmes for you.

For over 30 years I have been involved in New Zealand’s health and exercise industry. Although my original career was as an ICU nurse and I’m not practicing any more, I re-trained and pioneered the Personal Training industry in New Zealand.  Once I left this industry, I returned to education and not only was I lecturing in sport, exercise, nutrition and health physiology, but I was so interested in how to help people change their lifestyle behavior, that I undertook my master’s studies in this area. Then I went on to do my doctoral studies in the Faculty of Health, Sports and Human Performance at Waikato University. My desire was to better understand how women perceived their ageing and the role of exercise in this during the menopause transition. I am so pleased that I did! Because what I discovered was that our menopause transition, when we go into the final hormonal changes that herald in the end of our biological reproductive years, is the time to change our lifestyle. In a different hormonal environment, what we have done in the past to manage our health, energy and our weight, simply may not work any more. Not many health coaches and other professionals understand this, because there has been very little research on the menopause transition and lifestyle changes that we need to make to help us get ready for the next 30 years of living we have to do! When, through my women’s health research, I looked at many of the symptoms that women experience during menopause, I realised that this is the time of our lives that our health can begin to change and our menopause symptoms may become worse. This happened to me too.

So, I set out to untangle how to manage our energy, weight and lifestyle as we transition through menopause, so we didn’t need to rely on traditional hormone therapies that have been used in the past. Everything I discovered is now in two fabulous programmes called My Menopause Transformation.

These world-class 12-week Menopause Transformation programmes  are all online and have all the information you need to renew your energy and vitality in your mid-life years.  What you will discover is that your hormones all work in synergy so there are a number of ‘connecting-the-dots’ lifestyle strategies that you can put in place to turn around your symptoms and for many of you, begin to lose your menopause weight. If you let your lack of sleep, temperature dys-regulation, anxiety, low energy and weight gain or weight loss, become worse, then this can set you up for problems as you age, especially heart disease or for thinner women, osteoporosis.  I love helping women feel vital and energetic and healthy again.

Women going through the programmes are delighted with their results.  As Sally said after completing the ‘Circuit-Breaker’ programme – “It’s the best investment I made in me!”

I am passionate about you realizing your mid-life potential.  For many of you, these years are critical to re-focusing yourself on your health, exercise and on-going energy as you transition through menopause.  It’s a great time to put yourself first and I promise to show you the way.  

Come join me, I won’t let you down.”
