While organizing the lives of her many clients, Emmy-nominated organizing expert Dorothy Breininger learned to face her own stuff, and lost seventy-five pounds in the process. In this one-of-a-kind book she addresses weight loss from the much-needed perspective of what lies underneath our clutter—metaphorically, physically, and emotionally.
Whether you're a packrat or a calorie-counter, a neat freak or a binge eater, Breininger reveals why, to be successful on the scale, you must first master the clutter within you and around you. With the same no-holds barred candor that resonates with TV viewers, she offers prescient advice to help anyone face their stuff, with an organized, step-by-step approach to either toss it, tame it, or tailor it to fit their lives. Filled with personal stories from clients, her own success story, and tips from fitness coaches and organizing experts, this imminently practical book gives everyone the tools to declutter their way to their dream size.

I AM FACING MY STUFF AND I HAVE STOPPED STUFFING MY FACE I had the most amazing AH HA moment after reading Dorothy’s book. I have always struggled with weight my whole life. You name the diet – I’ve tried it. Although I have had success with each diet as soon as I go off the diet I put on the weight I lost and then some. After reading her book I finally have come to terms with why I have not been able to succeed. Since reading her book I have made major changes with the physical clutter in my life and the body clutter on my body. For all those fellow YO YO dieters out there GET THIS BOOK. Unlike other books written by skinny people with personal trainers but never deal with the real reason why we are grabbing those bag of potato chips to begin with it was refreshing to read how Dorothy has struggled and how she realized she was not facing the stuff in her life which caused her to stuff her face. Dorothy’s transformation after losing 75 pounds is amazing. You will love her stories woven within the book about her adventures on Hoarders.
Dorothy is a genius when it comes to the larger impact of organizing your life. She is committed to the work she does and it is reflected in her writing. You feel like she truly has your best interests in mind! Thanks Dorothy for another great book to add to my very organized and non-cluttered shelf!
Dorothy truly hits the hammer right on the head! This no-holds bar book tells you how to turn your life around when you Face Your Stuff. Just like her clients, she recognized her addictive-type tendencies. But instead of hoarding stuff to a dangerous point, Dorothy binged on food to keep anger and guilt in-check. Yes, you can overcome many obstacles....whether it's food, junk or animals...this is a must-read to bring you a life you deserve.
