Reader Patricia requested a post on de-cluttering and weight loss. Others have written on this topic from the perspective of de-cluttering their homes and as the junk came out of their house, the “junk in their trunk” melted almost effortlessly away.
This makes sense to me. Once you start down the path of asking, “What is enough?” in one area of your life, it begins to infiltrate others.
But since it’s been years since I had to do a big de-clutter, that has not been my story. My problem has been a combination of too much to do and a tendency toward perfectionism. This combination keeps me pushing myself to do “one more thing” before I collapse in exhaustion at the end of the day. And I have tried to “fuel” that push with caffeine, sugar or alcohol. That is where my enough point gets out of whack.
If I give up the endless To-Do list, if I pull back from my perfectionism to “good enough” levels and allow my body the rest it needs, my weight settles into a healthy place.
How about you all? What are the enough spots that create healthy weight for you?
