Can you tell that I have lost weight? Although I can’t be sure, I think it had to be about two-hundred pounds or so. See I just placed another big load of clothes, coats, shoes, household items, unwanted (although appreciated) Christmas gifts, and other miscellaneous stuff on my front porch. The charity pickup truck from the Lupus Foundation, www.lupuspickup.org, then came and carried it all away. I feel great about it for two main reasons: The donated items will ultimately go towards helping those battling the disease. Also, I have less clutter in my rooms, cupboards, and closets, helping to create a greater sense of order and peace in our home. So together let’s wage a war on clutter, set ourselves free, and lose some much-needed weight!
