Charlene Bazarian found herself “stuck” in midlife. After graduating from law school, getting married, and having kids, she just couldn’t seem to lose the weight that had crept on over time. By the time she hit 208 pounds, she knew she had to make a change. And she did.
The menopause forum started with a single question: What’s Your Story? It’s been almost seven years and hundreds women have openly shared their stories. We’ve had almost 2,500 responses and nearly 68,000 views just in that single discussion.
Many of us start the year with a list of resolutions and really good intentions. Maybe we want to kick a bad habit, reinvent ourselves, or just get our lives back on track. After all, there’s no better time than the new year to unload the guilt and start fresh. Out with the old and in with the new, right?
Even though you’d like to pretend you still have all the time in the world, the holidays are upon us. No matter where you turn, the signs are there. You can feel the pressure and anxiety building. Not to mention the hot flashes, mood swings and sleepless nights. So how are you going to handle menopause with a smile on your face and presents under the tree?
We recently caught up with Executive Producer Heidi Houston, a true influencer and the driving force behind Hot Flash Havoc. Heidi shared her thoughts on how the conversation about menopause is changing and why her mission is so personal, as well as details on her latest project, Menopause Talks.
Let's face it, menopause can turn our lives upside-down. Our bodies are changing, our hormones are going crazy and sometimes it feels like the hot flashes and extra pounds are taking over. And when we're just looking for answers, the messages we get from medical professionals, the media---and even our own friends and family---can be a little confusing. Heidi Houston hopes to shed some light on the mystery with her film Hot Flash Havoc. After her own personal experiences with early menopause, Heidi was frustrated with the same mixed messages. So she decided to do something about it. She reached out to the menopause community, interviewed over 30 experts in the field, and gathered personal stories from real women. Heidi and her team hope to change the story about menopause and create a dialogue with women and medical experts around the country.
Does midlife ever make you feel “too old?” Whatever our age, it seems like we carry the weight of the world on our shoulders while life is passing us by. We’re too old to go out and have fun. Too old for that dress. Too old to wear the bright red lipstick, even though it’s the perfect color. It’s time to stop hiding, worrying, and simply existing. And if you need a little inspiration, check out this clip from the documentary Fabulous Fashionistas. The film follows the lives of six women in their 70s and 80s who are redefining their ages in style. Without botox or plastic surgery. And while all of the ladies are well beyond menopause, their attitudes towards life are incredible. They all seem to have discovered their “fabulous”--- that elusive quality that makes us distinctive and special.
