How to Lose 2,000 Pounds

“How to lose 2,000 pounds,” the title of a presentation I just attended by Katie Munoz founder of “Moving Forward, Inc.”   She is all about making moving on with your life easier. We met with about twenty seniors at the Fairwinds community of Brittany Park in Woodinville Washington.   Twenty people that were enjoying their retirement in the resort like style… but not without having first to deal with downsizing from a lifetime of collecting.

When downsizing day comes, the question becomes “How?”

As we move forward with our lives, we may need to lighten the load a bit, say by about 2,000 pounds.  For example at the Brittany Park community, life is centered around the concept of being active and most importantly social and not tied down by our lifetime of collecting.  Imagine yourself in a  new, high end apartment along with a world of on-site amenities.  How much of your “stuff” do you really need?  That’s where Katie comes in to turn that “How” into an “Easily Done!”

Katie’s magic is working one on one with you to carefully go over, through and into your treasures, piece by piece,  helping  you decide which items to keep to furnish a new apartment and make it feel like good old warm cozy ‘ home sweet home.’ She and her “Moving Forward” team use tested methods that help not only with the physical process but just as importantly the emotional challenges.  Challenges made all the easier when the goal is to become part of a a community like Fairwinds ‘Brittany Park’ with its fine restaurant dining, fitness programs, trained instructors and let’s not forget world travel programs with Twist Travel.

For my part, once Katie has you settled in your new leisure care life style, I take on the task of guiding you through the sale of your now empty home, the shell you’ve shed to move forward.  The goal can become turning that “shell” into some cash to help, if you should choose, with future travel plans. 

 I can show you a little bit of my own magic and how easy it is,to accomplish just that.

If downsizing is in your future or in that of a loved one, someone like Katie can ”get it done” with ease and a leisure care community like Brittany Park can make for a special new home. When your choice is to sell your no longer suitable “shell,” I in a professional, straight forward mannor can turn that treasured shell into a future of  freedom with many exciting choices.  Its not really magic.  Its just knowing the right people to turn to, that can move you forward with ease.
