Tough words to write are when I compare what I learned about myself during the months of fighting breast cancer and the weight I have countless times failed to lose but know I am capable of losing.
Tough words to write are when I acknowledge the courage, the tenacity and the empowerment I felt during my battle with breast cancer when all along I have the courage and tenacity to lose weight and can feel empowered by the results.
Tough words to write when I compare cancer to obesity. But the reality is, both are killers and both can make me survivors.
Tough words to write are when I make a choice to no longer be a victim to my obesity, but to be a survivor in my weightloss.
Tough words to write when I have to refer to myself as a survivor. But that is what I am and that is what I am striving for again - to be a survivor!
