Hi Survivor Girl! (Just a suggestion for your new alter ego. When I got cancer 7 years ago, mine became Ginger).
My advice is to take it easy on yourself. When you survive breast cancer, you have to wrap your head around your own mortality and that takes time and effort. When you top that off with working on weight/fitness--and that's what it is, not just weight--you will need extra time.
I have come to a point where I look at it this way--I am running around a HUGE structure and so far it seems to be square. It might be a polyhedron (remember geometry?) and I don't know yet how many sides it has. I have made it around the first corner--the mortality issue--and I am around the second corner--getting into a fitness groove, exercising and eating well is a pattern--and I am losing size--but now I am working on my next corner--that one is losing an appreciable amount of weight. The structure is Cancer. I am outside of it and free of it, but I still need to get around it. It's working.
It takes time. Give yourself time and keep plugging.
