You've inspired me to get rid of a LOT of "stuff" since meeting on here rho . . . it's so freeing! (Is that a word?) It IS literally like having a weight lifted . . besides my own clutter/hoard/thrifty nature, I made it down to the old farmhouse and barns of several generations' accumulations and made a HUGE dent in the mess. On one hand I hate the vandals with the fire of a 1000 suns for their senseless destruction
. . . but then again, it forced me into action . . . so there is that, I guess lol
Just like the a&e hoarders show, i kept some containers of "priceless" nostalgic things (Mom's wedding dress/"class" book/Dad's WWII and work stuff etc) and have the place ready to burn to the ground (practice for the local fire dept) That day will really be an NSV lol . . . we've got the well dug and ready to build our retirement home in the next few years on the property. Researching this idea:
Isn't that cool? The bottom pic actually looks like where we are building
I'm really @ 234# now--was 238 when I posted but knew that was bloat so din't count it . . . I think I could lose 45#'s in 9 weeks but going to go with 40# goal . . . which would put me in the ONE's
Maintaining since March has been good practice, but enough is enough.
Read some sample chapters of the book anabee was talking about and the info already struck a chord . . . similar to a book I read in my 20's about panic disorder, which helped me all these years. Same principle about binge eating urges > when you stop reacting to them, the brain stops sending the impulse > in a nutshell. Food for thought . . ba da da da!
okokok...enough babbling right? Made the bike trail after 9pm (my night shift butt had to get a light for my bike or I'd NEVER go lol) Works out in this heat tho--106 today here in MO--cool by the river and high winds kept the bugs out of my face.
Hope everyone is doing good--cya late tomorrow!
