A friend kindly offered me his old entertainment center. It is a hand crafted beautiful piece that breaks apart into three pieces. Two of which I plan to use as book shelves. I also plan to put them in my room since space is at a premium in the rest of my house with a friend’s house packed up and moved in.
In order to get these new pieces moved in I needed to do some rearranging, which requires reorganizing. (My least favorite thing to do.) In doing this I re-discovered something I already knew. I have A LOT of clothes. Most of which I do not wear anymore. So I carted in so bags and starting sorting through the clothes, making piles to give away. I am a pack rat by nature or nurture, not sure which since both parents suffer this debilitating problem.
As I was sorting I found there was some stuff I still wanted but has grown a little too tight to be worn. This is where the idea spawned for this blog post. I already decided I need to lose some weight. Now with the clothes sorted into separate piles. Clothes that fit, and clothes I’d like to fit again. I decided that I would make myself accountable to the world. (Or at least the 8 followers I have.) Accountability always helps me to stay on task.
So starting today, my goal is to lose 20 pounds by March 31st. I know that is three months and I could probably could shoot for 20 pounds in 2 months, but I’m being honest with myself and giving a little wiggle room. (I need wiggle room or I’ll be overwhelmed and shut down.)
I will not post how much I currently weigh, and probably won’t post my final successful goal weight when I reach it. But I do intend to keep you up to date on my progress and anything I learn along the way.
GOAL: 20 pounds by March 31, 2010.
