I loved the thought of turning 50, great holiday, feeling more wisdom and at the height of my career. What I didn’t bank on were some of the things that came with 50, the hormone changes, tolerance (or intolerance) to my great friend alcohol, the weight gain in all the wrong places and a far more delicate mental state. What the hell had just happened to me??!!
I decided that it might be good therapy, as I can’t drink wine any more, to write about some of these experiences. You will find a series of amusing stories, but most importantly, you can follow my journey to lose a perimenopausal 15kg. I might add, that I have managed to put on that 15kg in the 2 years since I turned 50 and now it is coming off.
