This is a small question! Recently I've lost a lot of weight

Customer Question

Hi! This is a small question! Recently I've lost a lot of weight through healthy eating and exercise. I feel fit enough to take my exercise further but sometimes i'm just exhausted - like this morning i'd planned a long run but was too tired to get up. I'm also pre-menopausal so having more frequent periods/spotting. I've had my blood checked and am not anaemic. Thanks

Dear customer,

How much weight have you lost and in what duration? What is your daily exercise regimen? Have you had your thyroid hormones checked? How many hours do you sleep daily?
