Michelle Obama Shares Her Menopause Experience

On a recent tour for hew new book The Light We Carry, Former First Lady Michelle Obama opened up about her experiences with menopause.

Obama, 58, explained in People Magazine how she started experiencing hot flashes and weight gain during menopause and wasn't well informed. "There is not a lot of conversation about menopause. I'm going through it, and I know all of my friends are going through it. And the information is sparse."

Obama recently shared in On the Michelle Obama Podcast how she's tried hormone replacement therapy to help with the hot flashes. She's also dialed back her workouts a bit. 

"I've had to change the way I see myself in my health space...If I can walk and move, I don't have to run. I don't have to beat everyone," Obama says.

I am still physically active, and my goal now, instead of having 'Michelle Obama arms,' I just want to keep moving.
