Get organized. Lose weight.

1 August 2008

Organizer Peter Walsh received a lot of press earlier this year upon the release of his book, Does this Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat? that explored the connection between getting organized and losing weight.

One of my favorite organizers in the world, Geralin Thomas, of Metropolitan Organizing was making this connection before Walsh’s headlines. Her organizing work with a couple of clients who, between the two of them, lost more than a hundred pounds in the process, was highlighted earlier this month in an article on Lifetime TV’s website. The article is called Get organized and get thin: How controlling the clutter in your life can help you lose weight.

If you’re dealing with both weight and clutter issues, this is a must read. It offers concrete advice from Geralin (with feedback from he clients) on creating new habits that can lead to both organization and weight loss.

Congratulations, Geralin!

I couldn’t agree more with this connection between weight loss & clutter. I see it all the time with clients… and it’s surprising how once the clutter starts to diminish, the motivation to get back in shape becomes more in focus!

I think we all agree that it’s not just about the clutter, right? And, with weight loss, it’s not about the food. It’s about changing habits and quantities and going for quality over quantity and so on and so on…
