Breast cancer treatment can really impact on someone’s weight and energy levels. Many women find their weight increases and they struggle to lose weight.
You may want to have a chat with your GP or practice nurse. They can offer information and support regarding weight loss and physical activity. There are some medical reasons why someone is constantly hungry so they may want to check for this before making weight loss suggestions. Other medical conditions can impact on the sort of exercise someone can do and having a hernia can restrict certain types of physical activity.
It sound as if the fit bit has been helpful with achieving 10,000 steps a day. Our information about weight loss might be helpful and the NHS has a 12 week weight loss programme, which also might be if interest. Some women find the support of a weight loss group is what helps them.
