I am nine days in to my 2013 weight loss program. I have done this before, losing 52 pounds several years ago using a combination of exercise and a daily eating limit of 1,500 calories. In 2012, I gained close to 20 pounds, most of which I attribute to stress eating. (Someday I may write more about that.) This means that have some clothes that do not comfortably fit me. I want to fit in those clothes again so that I do not feel compelled to replace them. I don’t like buying clothes.
