“I’m now sleeping all night and no hot flushes. I’ve lost over 10 kilograms and the difference to how I was feeling a year ago is incredible. I now have the energy levels back that I used to. I’ve just been skiing and in my “previous life” I could not do a run at Mt Hutt without stopping for a breather or to rest my limbs.  I would have to go down to the car for a nap too. So it has been an incredibly pleasing experience yesterday and today to have skied from top to bottom (of the triple) without stopping, not even puffed!  I still can’t quite believe it.  It’s just fantastic!  I’m over the moon.”  [Jo, Christchurch, New Zealand]

Julia, Whangarei, New Zealand

“I loved how Wendy didn’t put any pressure on me to exercise, until I was sleeping all night. Now exercise has become my new best friend with my daily walk and I have lost 6kgs since starting. Being able to get into jeans I have not worn for a couple of years is a great feeling. I also seemed to have nailed the sleeping. Thank you for such an easy programme to follow.” (Julia, Whangarei, New Zealand)

Bernie, Timaru, New Zealand

“ I have lost 10kg and learnt a great deal so changed my thinking and eating significantly and feeling much better. I must admit I feel the best I have for many years and no longer want sugar. The programme had been most helpful and the online guidance the key to success. Keep spreading the word and thanks for all your expert guidance.”  [Bernie, Timaru, New Zealand]

Andrea, Australia

“I came on board this programme because nothing I was doing or taking was changing my energy levels. The lack of sleep was leaving me feeling so demotivated to do the painting that I love to do. I think all women going through menopause should do this programme. It has changed my life. I am feeling so much more energised, in control and just happy. It kinda feels unbelievable really. 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 how I feel now.” [Andrea, Australia]

Bronwyn, Invercargill, New Zealand

“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! 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 Wendy. Your programme has been life-changing for me.”

Sue, Tauranga, New Zealand

“I weighed myself again and have lost 4kg. I am really pleased and this will help my resolve to keep with the MyMT programme. It’s so easy to follow and I love just focusing on your recommendations of 80% of the changes and then decide on what will be the other 20%, especially now that it’s Christmas.”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.”

Mary-Anne, New Zealand

“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’m noticing far less severity in the night sweats. Keep it coming MyMT™!”

Marie, Christchurch, New Zealand

“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 Coaching Community group. 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.”

 

Sandra, Christchurch, New Zealand

“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, Te Awamutu, New Zealand

“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, Hamilton, New Zealand

“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 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)!”

Lynette, Alexandra, New Zealand

“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 for all your research to help us.”

Dallas, Wellington, New Zealand

“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, Queensland, Australia

“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 programme really works and is worth every cent. As a consumer of this programme it was worth way more to me for the improvement it has made to my happiness, health and well-being.”

Cherie, Auckland, New Zealand

“Hi Wendy, Well, 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.”

Jacqui, Melbourne, Australia

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 peri-menopause and menopause.”

Jackie, Dunedin, New Zealand

Hi, this is my first post after beginning the programme a couple of weeks ago. In taking the first step and registering for the programme 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 reminders that Wendy has in her ‘Daily Dozen’ 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 am discovering that I can do this without it!”

Robyn, Te Awamutu, New Zealand

Hi Wendy. Now that I’ve finished your ‘Circuit-Breaker’ programme, I signed up for your ‘Re-Build My Fitness’ programme. It’s amazing and I 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! I am loving all the learning I am doing on both your programmes.” 

Ann, Wanaka, New Zealand

Hi MyMT, I can relate to everything you have said in the ‘Circuit-Breaker’ programme Wendy. This is such a great programme. I’m loving everything I am learning and now that I am listening to your webinars, it just makes so much sense. You have taken away all the confusion for me and I love how holistic it is too. I can’t thank you enough as I feel so much better.”

Debbie, Wellington, New Zealand

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 programme has come at the right time for me. This programme is like a breath of fresh air. Thank you again I am feeling positive again about the ‘Journey’ and for the first time in years, I am sleeping all night. I can’t thank you enough as I now have the energy I need to do my job as a Personal Trainer.”

Alison, New Plymouth, New Zealand

“Wendy, I love your programme. I was feeling so low and un-motivated before I came on board, but the flexibility of the programme and constant feedback made it all so personal and I felt I wasn’t alone on the journey. All the info made sense and I could understand it. The Coaching Community info and posts made a huge difference and kept me motivated and interested. 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. I am now off HRT and my anti-depressants and have the energy for exercise again. In fact, I have recently completed a 5-day cycle trip which a year ago, wouldn’t have been anything I could have imagined I would ever be able to do. I love how healthy I now feel, thank you.”

Terri, Invercargill, New Zealand

“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, Christchurch, New Zealand

“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, Dunedin, New Zealand

“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 so much for developing this. It has incredible information.”

Jane, Waikane, New Zealand

“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. I’m now back on track and loving all the life-changing information.”

Donnella, Tauranga, New Zealand

“Hi Wendy – 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 amazing programme and support.”

Debbie, Wellington, New Zealand

“I love how you have made everything make so much sense, Wendy. I am enjoying learning about the physiological aspects of menopause and how to manage that. I am putting your strategies 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 loving 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!
