As a shmirshky going through perimenopause, I’ve spent many days battling with the sumo wrestler in my head. You know the big guys that wear the loincloths and try to push each other over? Menopause and weight gain can make your sumo’s voice seem louder than ever – this guy loves to keep telling me that I’m getting old and wrinkled and that I’m not sexy anymore. Well, I’m not listening anymore!

In this Menopause Monday music video, a hilarious parody of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies,” Anita Renfroe is standing up for all us shmirshkies out there! And these ladies are amazing, sporting some seriously sexy high heels and dancing around in that legendary black leotard! Go shmirshkies, go!

After struggling with her own severe menopause symptoms and doing years of research, Ellen resolved to share what she learned from experts and her own trial and error. Her goal was to replace the confusion, embarrassment, and symptoms millions of women go through–before, during, and after menopause–with the medically sound solutions she discovered. Her passion to become a “sister” and confidant to all women fueled Ellen’s first book, Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness. As a result of the overwhelming response from her burgeoning audiences and followers’ requests for empowering information they could trust, Ellen’s weekly blog, Menopause MondaysTM, was born.
