    Today I threw away something... I'm not sure what it was. It was in the back of my fridge. It smelled rank. It gave me no joy. LOL

    Truly though, I like this thread, and I'm glad you brought it back.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Dang, where is that laughing gif when I need it?

    No joy indeed, Joanie. I'm in a hotel so have limited options on what to toss, but happened to have some truly hideous nail polish in my travel bag for some reason and it will not be making the trip home with me. We do what we can where we can, right?

    hi
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

    Just downloaded the book on Kindle. Will be reading and digesting for a bit as I ready mentally for the Big Purge.
    I think a Chocolate Angel Pie slice is called for.....it is too Primal! The bag of chocolate chips said so.

    Yay! Was sad when I realised the original thread would have been lost! Argh. We had good notes in there.

    Hey hum, even the Universe tidies with random forum post deletions!

    Can't remember if I discarded anything last night but I did get through another to-do list and the momentum for tidying around the house continues. I may allocate myself a night off tonight, at least from a planned list, and just go with the flow. I have a list-ful week ahead with holiday packing to prepare

    I really need some motivation to begin to tackle my spare room. I look in there and I feel a slightly panicky feeling, so many decisions to make and so much cleaning to do (shelves covered in dust)! I never finished reading The Book, perhaps if I did I'd find the motivation and clarity I need to overcome this obstacle.

    I guess motivation maybe comes from how far you got with the book. But bear in mind that her method is by category not by location, so maybe that would help you - to go in there looking only for the items in the category, starting with clothes, and sub-categorised by types of clothes, if you need.

    Have you applied the method to the rest of your space or is the spare room your white elephant?

    I'll re-post in case this is one of the ones that went missing, but although I got the impression from first reading her book that this is a quick one-off exercise, she talks about quick being up to about six months. It is easy to overlook this in the way she talks about people getting rid of twenty or thirty garbage bags.

    I have started with clothes but I find myself being generally more mindful of my other possessions as well. I'm also more likely to tidy up behind myself. The improvements have been noticeable.

    One final thought on your spare room, if that really is where and what you would feel would make the most impact, perhaps start by examining items one by one just starting with the nearest thing to the door. Is there anywhere else you can find for the things you choose to keep?

    Best of luck

    I am liking the look of this. I will probably get the kindle version and have a go, thanks.
    Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
    Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
    Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.
