I gained 35 pounds and cannot seem to get rid of it. Worse yet my cancer was her2neu 3/3 positive so I have to take anti-estrogen meds that threw me into menopause. I am having pain with the Aromasin so Dr. put me on Femara, (same side-effects), sometimes it hurts to walk, so much for working out. I recently bought a WII Fit, and it tells me I'm a couch potato, I need to find a way to loose weight with out looseing muscle. If anyone has any ideas I would be more than happy to hear them. Oh by the way, after three weeks I did loose a pound with the WII, at this rate I may need to use it for 3 years to reach 35 pound loss.
