If it weren’t for my breast cancer, I wouldn’t be a ‘Today’ host. After I got better, I talked to my boss about working on the show. Six months before, I’d have been terrified to go in there and ask for what I wanted. But after what I’d been through, how could I be scared of being told no?

I’ve had weight issues all my life. I’ve been on all the diets: Atkins, liquid protein, Scarsdale diet. Now I go to the gym often. I’m always on the StairMaster, and I do weights.

I wake up at 4:15 A.M., get some coffee, turn on the news, see what’s happening, go clickety-clack on the web to see what I missed overnight. Then I go to the gym, around 5:15, and I do what appears to be a very light workout, but who cares. I’m socializing with other nice people at the gym. Then I go into work, and I’m really awake.
