“I think all women going through menopause should do this program. It has changed my life. I am feeling so much more energised, in control and just happy. It kinda feels unbelievable. Ironically, at this time of my life, I finally had the time to paint but no energy or enthusiasm to do so, and I had wanted this so badly for so long. Now I finally have the energy for my painting and other things in my life. I’m absolutely loving it.”*
“I’m one of the Transformers mentioned and I want to shout it from the roof-tops how amazingly beneficial this program is! I wish all Women’s Health Practitioners, Gastroenterologists, Endocrinologists, Orthopaedic Surgeons, Cardiologists…..who are seeing all our menopausal symptoms in isolation to their specialty begin to recommend this program. It gets to the source of the multiple symptoms in peri-menopause! The program helped me to feel empowered to take control of my health and symptoms at this time of my life!”*
“I just want to say that I wish I had measured myself before introducing the dietary changes. I know I have been changing shape around the middle rather than losing too much weight. I feel so much better about being ‘Mother-of-the-Bride’ next week. Thank you MyMT Team!”*
“I have found the Daily Dozen Handouts to be a great reminder of the way to manage peri- and menopause challenges. The Hot Flash Management Plan you have is a great list for effective management.”*
“I weighed myself again and have lost about 2kg. I am really pleased and this will help my resolve to keep with the MyMT programme. As recommended I focus on 80% of the changes and then decide on what will be the other 20%, especially at Christmas.”*
“Hi MyMT. This is my first post on Facebook ever. Making the recommended changes has been my focus over the last two weeks ever since starting the program. I’m now sleeping all night and my hot flushes have reduced. All in all, I’m really surprised about the interaction between all of the hormones as described by Wendy and when I put into place her ‘Daily Dozen’ in each module, it all falls into place. I feel so much better. Thanks Wendy. This menopause was really starting to get me down.”*
“This is the end of my first week on Step 3 of MyMT Circuit-Breaker. I am working up to meet all 12 TIPS in the MyMT Daily Dozen Summary for this Step. I like the progression from the previous steps as it’s not another huge leap of change. Very easy to follow and implement. What doesn’t surprise me is my lack of protein, as I am a vegetarian who dislikes tofu and has managed on eggs and a few nuts. The MyMT programme has made me look more closely at this aspect of my diet so that is my focus this past week ensuring more protein in my diet to suit menopause. There have been some really helpful and non-confronting comments made by Wendy in the on-line seminars. These have been really enlightening yet make perfect sense. I especially liked the mention of weighing yourself. I was too scared to get on the scales these days but I now know why I must. I am finally sleeping all night and hot flushes down to 1 or 2 first thing in the morning only – YES, this is working!”*
“Woop-woop! I weighed myself this morning. After only 3 weeks on the program I have lost 2.5 kgs. I am now transforming my life bit by bit and loving it.”*
“I have suffered from a variety of heart palpitations over many years…starting after an operation that went wrong. When I am tired and under stress the palpitations return. I learnt about managing my palpitations from Wendy in one of her on-line seminars. It made so much sense to me and I put all her recommendations in place. Now I no longer have them. MyMT is so interesting. I love how I’m learning what other health professionals weren’t able to tell me. Thank you.”*
“I have been listening to the webinars. Gosh, I found the dietary advice about what to eat in the afternoon/ evenings and the effect on hot flushes so interesting. I have been modifying my diet and yes, it works. I’m noticing less severity in the night sweats. Keep it coming MyMT™!”*
“Hello MyMT. The best thing for me is focusing on being healthy rather than the down side of menopause. I love the regular updates as emails and through Wendy’s conversations in the coffee group. Thank you. At last some decent information on menopause symptoms and how to manage them without medication.”*
“I particularly found the MyMT Liver-Lover webinar beneficial as I have put on weight over the last couple of years with peri-menopause, to the point that I am now overweight. As I’ve taken on board all the advice given, I’ve now turned my metabolism around to losing-mode. Fantastic. I have found everything very informative and am making changes slowly but surely.”*

“I slept so well last night … I think I only woke once and then straight back to sleep – I do not recall any “blankets off blankets on” behaviour so the hot flushes have definitely subsided, in fact I have noticed that I don’t break out in perspiration any more with the Hot Flushes…..huge yay!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
“The other thing I really like about your programme is that you are not just targeting symptoms but looking at this thing so holistically i.e. our health in general. So a million thank you’s.”
Anne, 54 yrs
“Good morning everyone, had to share this, weighed myself this morning and I have now lost 3 kgs. I am more excited than I would normally be because the last two weeks have been quite stressful and way out of my usual comfort zone. No night sweats, no heart palpitations, the energy levels are amazing, and no hot flushes. Along with my normal work, I have been caring for two older people and all that entails, including staying overnight. Through all this I have been conscious of doing what I can of the ‘Circuit-Breaker’ program. Wow it is working, so thank you Wendy Smith-Sweet for giving me the wherewithal, I am so grateful. Have a great day everyone!”
Tess, 49 yrs
“It has been a interesting journey for me in a number of ways! My experience (which started at only 39) with peri-menopause was not a fun one and I am now only just starting to come to grips with life again at the age of 45. My husband and I had three cycles of IVF (through my early 30’s) and were unsuccessful and I always wondered if this has had an impact on this?
I have struggled, not understanding who I was anymore? I was that individual who was always doing things – motivated, energetic, ran marathons, competed in figure comps, trained, you know the story….and then I was this angry, tired, hungry, sad person who gained over 28 kilos and really just wanted to hide from the world. I tried everything, the bio-identical hormone creams, restrictive diets, HRT (only 6 months just because I didn’t know what else to do, not because I wanted to), and then just giving up. I am now and have been what I would call “post menopause” (and I say that as I haven’t had a cycle for over 2 years) and as my GP put it when my result came back from blood test to confirm – the ovaries have packed up and moved out.. and really just thought that broken sleep, fatigue and fat was just part of what I had to accept.
I came along to your seminar at Les Mills, Hamilton and since signing up I have managed to have (on most nights) a full night’s sleep without hot flushes or night sweats. I have lost over 4 kilos of fat, and finally feel like I want to train again ( I always did love weight training)! So all I can say is thank you, and that really doesn’t seem to be enough really. Here’s to being fitter, leaner and happier than I have ever been (never too old for anything)!”
“Hi Wendy – I was just getting my gut health on track when menopause reared its ugly head (I think it was there longer than I knew but the body was fighting all the other things). I have discovered though that Menopause is a moving target. I am really enjoying your program and have now added MyMT as my other go-to for resources and information. It is all fantastic information and works well with the other health issues I have. Thank you.”
Dallas, 53 yrs
“I have now completed all of the modules in ‘Circuit Breaker’ and just wanted to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed every piece of information that you have given me and have learnt so much! It has been like a puzzle falling into place for me and I now understand why I have been the way I have. I have implemented most of what you have suggested and I cannot thank you enough. I feel so much better. Once again thank you.”
Carolyn, 52 yrs
“I tried everything to change my symptoms and nothing worked. I put on more and more weight and felt miserable and lifeless. I have been on the program for about 6 weeks now and honestly it has worked miracles. I am losing weight, my hot flushes have almost entirely gone and I have much more energy and I am feeling fantastic. I spent so much money over the years on doctor’s visits and over the counter remedies that didn’t make any difference. This program really works and is worth every cent for your wellbeing during menopause. As a consumer of this program it was worth way more to me for the improvement it has made to my happiness, health and wellbeing.”
For those of you who aren’t sure about the MyMT Circuit Breaker program, Cherie has completed the program and has given me permission to tell you this from her!
“Hi all, we it’s fair to say that I am thrilled to have finally found a programme where I feel like I am now in control of my menopause. After having my uterus and ovaries removed due to cancer in my mid 30’s, I thought wrongly that I had gone through surgical menopause some 20 years ago. So you can imagine the huge shock at the age of 52 to develop what turned out to be a solid dose of symptoms that lead my Dr to inform me that I was in fact joining the ranks of my friends and suffering menopause. Initially it was a case of thank heavens for that, fairing the worse I thought that’s ok, I can deal with this…..ah 8 months in, waking up half a dozen times in the night with both hot flushes and terrible night sweats, feeling grumpy with lack of sleep and no matter how hard I work out at the gym the weight was going up not down, I was at my wits end. I tried all sorts of natural remedies, from acupuncture to Chinese herbs, all with little effect. It was encouraging and refreshing to find MyMT™, it all made sense so I signed up. Thank you for providing me with the tools to start dealing with my journey, I have just come to the end of my first week and I love the feeling of being in control and making a difference. I have already noticed the severity of my night sweats & flushes are decreasing and I am excited to continue to see further changes.
Where do I begin. The hot flushes, the night sweats, night after night of not sleeping and the debilitating anxiety. I was beyond exhausted. Physically and emotionally I was at my lowest point. Every day became a struggle. Menopause hit me like a tonne of bricks. I’d suffered from migraines which worsened through perimenopause so when I went through menopause I was overjoyed to have the migraines stop. But then came the avalanche of everything else. I sought advice from the medical and naturopathic fields but I still couldn’t get on top of all the many aspects of menopause that were making my life miserable. And then I heard about Wendy and MyMT and I emailed her. Even the email she sent back made me feel better because she knew exactly what I was going through and why. I signed up to the program and am now working through it. Every step is a big step because it makes such a difference to how I feel. The program is empowering because it makes you feel back in control of your own health. Wendy’s knowledge is incredible and she is so responsive to any questions I have. I highly recommend MyMT to anyone experiencing the rollercoaster of perimenopause and menopause.

Hi, this is my first post after beginning the program a couple of weeks ago. In taking the first step and registering for the program I felt like I had ‘taken charge’ and begun to work in a more focused way on getting my symptoms under control. I have previously tried various herbal supplements with varying degrees of success. The daily dozens combined and used to change habits, are very powerful. It’s given me a whole new re-focus. Thank you for providing the additional support and encouragement to keep going. HRT is no longer on my radar – I can do this without it!
Hi Wendy. I’ve just read the first email you’ve sent out in the Re-Build me program, and had a bit of a light bulb moment. It sounds silly, but I’ve never actually thought about whether I want to exercise for fitness, or health. I suppose there is a connection, in that I probably do need to be fitter, for the benefit of my health, but I’m certainly not out to try and run a marathon! Thank you for challenging my thoughts in more ways than one!
Ann G. (55 years)
Hi MyMT, I can relate to everything you have said in the ‘Circuit-Breaker’ program, Wendy. This is such a great program. I’m loving everything I am learning.
Hi Wendy I’ve just joined the group and am so happy you have bought this program together. I am an Exercise Professional and predominantly my clients are over 50. I myself have been going through (the change) for the last 4 years. I am 56 this year. What a battle I have faced. Like yourself I have been in the industry for 20+ years and these last 2 years I have struggled with all sorts of different obstacles. I have tried everything. I have found this condition/stage of my life is way out of my control. Everything I have done/tried has failed or if it did work it was short term. The anxiousness, the stress it all added up. Lack of sleep, night sweats, flushes, weight gain you name I’ve had it. So off to the doctor I went. I came home with a happy pill. This worked well initially, but still gaining weight, craving sugar? I would rather not have the HRT. So your program has come at the right time for me. This program is like a breath of fresh air. Thank you again I am feeling positive again about the ‘Journey’. Thanks again.
Alison (52 years)
|I have recommended to friends and will continue to do so. The flexibility of the programme and constant feedback made this programme very personal and I felt I wasn’t alone on the journey. All the info made sense and I could understand it. The circular nature of repeated info and ideas helped with memory retention. The coffee group info and posts made a huge difference and kept me motivated and interested. I am revisiting most of the material because of some unrelated health issues. The new weight loss programme looks exciting. The best thing is I don’t feel it is my fault menopause has been hard, rather it’s a mixture of body type and habits that can be changed to work in my favour. My motivation is to move into the 50 + years being active and healthy. Thanks to you both. Ali.T.|

“This course is going so well, that when we go to Canada for a family holiday, I will be rocking my bikini again – even at 58!”
Jayne (51 years)
“It’s been overwhelming how the simple daily dozen has helped with my sleeping – I’m now waking with energy and a positive outlook. Making food changes has had benefits too, I have already lost 2 kilos and my bloating seems to be a thing of the past. By keeping the 3 “Ds” forefront to my day, has really had a positive effect in everything I’m doing throughout my day. Being in the fitness industry for 18 years I always had the energy to get through life, however over the past year as “things” changed, my days became a struggle getting through, feeling that I couldn’t cope with the stuff I once could. Although I understood that it was probably hormones – I didn’t realise the extent the imbalances were impacting on me. Wendy – you made it all make sense, and I am enjoying re-learning hormone pathways and what is going on in my ageing body. Look forward to my next module – thanks again Coach!
Bernie ( 52 years)
Hi Wendy, you were my first Personal Trainer over 20 years ago and when I saw you had this programme I knew I could trust it. Loving the programme so far and getting lots out of it. Thanks.
Jane (53 years)
Completely fell off the wagon over easter – and I paid for it! It reinforced how powerful this programme is, especially as my sleep went awol again, when I came off the programme!
Hi girls, My sleep patterns are so much better and giving me more energy during the day. I have just had a 4 day weekend for Easter and worked in the yard, very hard manual gardening, and have continued sleeping well and feel like I kept up with my adult children (maybe more than them too) in lifting, shoveling and chopping trees down. I feel 100% to what I was earlier in the year. Thanks again for your support.
Debbie (52 years New Zealand)
“Everything is making sense and I am enjoying learning about the physiological aspects of menopause and how to manage that.
I am putting the steps into practice; my sleep has improved and I have more energy and I’m doing more than I have in a long time. I’ve lost around 4kgs, my flushes are better and I’m particularly focusing on reducing my stress, now I understand the link between that and weight loss and sleep. All in all, I’m feeling good and enjoying the programme.”
Hallie (Dunedin, New Zealand)
“I want to say that the Circuit Breaker programme was absolutely brilliant! I tried my best to follow everything – and it has made a huge difference to my sleep, weight and general state of mind. I have had very few hot flashes over the last few months, so thank you. I totally feel that I got my money’s worth from the programme. I have been recommending it to all my friends.”
Janine S (Invercargill, New Zealand)
Wendy – thank you!!!!! Thank you for the time & work you have put into creating, nurturing & improving MMT Circuit Breaker to help people like me. I started the programme mid January and wish I had found it sooner. I am still struggling to get a full nights sleep but have finally got control of my hot flashes! Who knew that what I was putting in my mouth had such a big impact on my body at a time in my life when it is already in turmoil – and boy do I know when I have consumed something I shouldn’t have. I am looking forward to unlocking the next stages of Circuit Breaker and taking back control of my body. I have also managed to reduce my belly fat – roll on the stage that helps me drop a few kilos too.
Keep up your awesomeness!
