Tough words to write

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

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!

    Believe it or not, I love the analogy. I am not a cancer survivor, my sister is. She is not an obesity survivor, I am. It takes every bit of tenacity and determination we have in ourselves to survive both. Here's to surviving both! emoticon
