Now that 2012 is over and 2013 is upon us, I hate feeling like I am starting this weightloss journey again at the first of the year because that's not it for me. For me it has to do with my birthday, which was yesterday (12/31) and wanting to reach my goals before I turn 40. It's just coincidence that my birthday is when it is but I hate that it looks and feels like a "New Years Resolution."

Despite all that, I do need to move beyond 2012 as it was truly my worst year EVER! I felt the heartache of losing my dad, the reality of having to give up my career, and the financial burdens which are plaguing my family. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't all bad as I did get to spend 3 weeks touring Europe with my mom and I got to see my kids grow and change more but the negative really did overshadow the positive last year. I really need this year to start on a good foot. If that means that I start my trying to take control of my weight and my life at the start of the year, so be it but it is no my resolution it is my choice.
