Thanks for writing in.
The aromatase inhibitors that you are currently taking are steroids and could be responsible for the weight gain. In addition, the stress, lack of physical activity and dietary habits could have led to weight gain. In addition, I would also like to rule out hypothyroidism by doing a TSH, free thyroxine and free thyronine level in your case. But I would suggest you speak with your treating physician. A sensible eating and exercise plan should be started only after you have seen your physician.
Hope this helps
