Catherine, my partner in marriage, life and all that stuff has just launched a website. The site is called Nurturing Hope and it is reaching out to people who are grappling with the issues of hoarding/cluttering and compulsive eating. Catherine is making these issues her life’s work. Check out her personal story of recovery from morbid obesity and hoarding (with BEFORE and AFTER pics).
Our life together started back in 2002. The first time that she came to visit me at my house, she was relieved to discover that I had a cluttered home. In a strange coincidence, we both had entrance hallways that were missing drywall on the ceilings as the result of second story bathroom repairs. We shared a cluttered home together for quite a while before Catherine began to make lifestyle tweaks that gradually changed her health and our home for the better. While I played an active role in some of the strategies to battle the clutter, I have been pretty much an onlooker with her weight loss.
Catherine is the love of my life and seeing her make dramatic improvements to her health and to our home life has been a joyful experience. The thought of her being an agent of positive change in the lives of other people is pretty neat
