Happy 2013 !

Well, here we are….a new year.  I am appreciating this time of year; time to refresh myself after a very busy holiday season.  The Christmas decor is put away, the kids will head back to school in a couple of days and I feel I’ll be able to focus on weight loss again.  Which is a good thing, because I have a slight problem…
We bought new University of Oklahoma t-shirts for our family for Christmas and I misread the sizes when ordering mine. Um, it’s too small.  I thought I was buying it a tad fitted, but turns out its definitely too small to wear in public. 
Instead of exchanging it I decided to make it a motivator for me to get back on track.   I’m a little nervous, because I keep thinking what if it’s still too snug at my goal weight? It’s an 8/10.  Hhhhmmm… 
Well, I’ve decided to just try and see.  
So, my main goal for 2013 is … to fit into this shirt:

I would also like to run another 10K, or two, this year.
Okay..interruption…I have a confession…
When I look at those pictures I’m amazed it’s me.  I haven’t been this size, and stayed there, for so many years that I was surprised to see how small I look when my daughter showed me the shots.
So, while I grin when I realize I’m this thinner version of my[old]self…having this t-shirt be too tight was a good reminder for me.  It gives me a motivation to deal with a deeper issue that I still struggle with in my health — eating when I’m not hungry, too often.
It’s not about the size of clothes for me, it’s about getting control over the overeating and making healthier food choices. (I’m fighting with the healthier choices sometimes still…)
So, 2013…I’m ready.  I know it won’t be easy, but I also know I’ve come a long way and with God all things are possible!

    You look great and very tiny! That shirt doesn't really look all that tight. Do some serious strength training and it will be loose before you know it!
