Getting back on track and taking control

I have been in a pretty bad depression for a while. Lots of things going on in my life causing me to get down. So instead of doing my normal which is crawling in bed , sleeping for days and eating everything i can at night , I am doing what i can to NOT do that ! One thing I started was using things I have seen on Pinterest to organize my house. Normally I would let my house go , which only makes things worse. If your environment around you is a disaster you feel the same way !
So I started this blog Getting Organized in Texas as a form of therapy if you will.

Now that I feel like my house is nearly organized ( is anyones how ever 100% cleaned and organized ? LOL) I have decided to take back control of my weight. Ignoring it 10 yrs ago , not ever stepping on a scale for 10 yrs is what got me to 250 lbs ! I cant do that anymore.
I cant tell you what i weight right now because I have not stepped on a scale in months !
So I saw something similar to this on Pinterest but it was for a different reason ( to say why you love your husband , GAG LOL) so I adapted it for a weight loss chart . Its made out of a picture frame , so you can write on it w/ a dry erase marker ... I put it above my toilet so i had to see it everyday , no more putting it a side. The scale is right below it .
Hopefully this will help me some ?


  1. Awesome idea, Mindy! I have been reading your other blog too. You have inspired me to clean and organize a few rooms in my house this week too. My husband is away for work but gets back tomorrow. I am hoping that he will be happy with the progress.

  2. Oh, and you are 100% right (at least with my own experiences): if my environment has headed south, my head--and often my emotions--go down some too.

    And one more comment...I agree with you...I have been thinking about that as I have been cleaning/organizing this week too...I don't think there are too many people that can be 100% clean and organized! But no matter their situations, we are getting in gear for ourselves! And it feels good!
