Managing Weight: Free Teleconference
There is a lot of conversation about the importance and the difficulty of weight management after breast cancer. Most women gain 5-10 pounds during adjuvant treatment (likely due to a combination of sometimes being catapulted into menopause, slower metabolism, munching to manage nausea, less exercise) and we all know that pounds are harder and harder to lose as we get older. There is much evidence that excess pounds may increase the risk of breast cancer recurrence. That is enough to get me to the gym in the morning and to (usually) pass on the ice cream (although the world's very best ice cream is available at Kimball's in Carlisle, not too far from me, and I can't get through a summer without the occasional Moose Tracks cone).
