Lose the Clutter, Lose the Weight

Thursday, April 16, 2015

Recently in my search for yet another resource for my journey to health, I came across the book "Lose the Clutter, Lose the Weight", by Peter Walsh. The title intrigued me, since I am living with someone who has a very difficult time getting rid of anything. Needless to say it is a constant battle to stay on top of things and keep the house in order.

I really wanted to read the book, but I didn't want to pay $ 26.00, so I deicded to see if I could check it out from our local library. It turns out that I am not the only one interested in that topic. When I requested the book to be put on hold for me, the librarian informed me that it was a very popular book and that there were 26 people ahead of me to check it out. I am # 27! Really?!?
The way things are going I may be able to get the book in a year. Wow!
Clutter and weight: this is a topic I have thought about numerous times and over the years I have defiintely seen a connection. I really want to learn more about this topic and see if, and how, it applies to my situation.
I would be interested if anyone has read this book, and if they have found it helpful or gained any valuable insights.

    I have not read that book but there are a couple of articles here on SP about de-cluttering and getting organized and how it can help in your weight loss goals! If you do a search for it I'm sure you will find a few articles on the subject on here!

    Never heard of it. In the mean time just look up info on it, peoples reviews and just do the best you can without it. Maybe search for it on SP, they could have reviewed it or featured it, like they do with all kinds of books, etc.
    Never give up! You can do this!!

    I haven't read the book, but one of the teams I'm on does a challenge kick clutter to the curb. The beginning of the week you make a list of one task for each day which has to do with getting your life more organized. I have read that it does go hand in hand with weight loss. Getting things in place, getting rid of excess helps your mental attitude which in turn helps you to be more disciplined with making healthy choices. Hope this helps

    Can't wait to hear more about the book. Recently lost both parents, there's nothing like cleaning out their house to make me remove some of my clutter!
