Hello everyone! My name is Lindsay. I am in the middle of a ton of home improvement projects that have my life in chaos. I am an organizational freak that fills out of control when everything is a mess. I actually consider a good weekend to be one when I get alot of things done and things are neat and clean. I have two toddlers so that is seldom the case but if I can stay on top of it all will be good!!

Hey, Ladies! I'm a granma from Mississippi, retired engineering professor, and organizer supreme! At least, I love to sort stuff, and I'm pretty good at parsing down clutter in my own life! Of course, going through a fire in 2005 was a great motivator. My son and I took that as a wake-up call, and decided that the "things" in our life did NOT define who we are! Looking forward to getting in on some of these discussions.

Hey everyone! I just joined today. I joined mainly because the team picture makes me want to clean!!! And hopefully seeing it on my sparkpage every day will make me go organize my living space. I'm normally pretty organized and I love doing it when I have the time (and money to buy cool containers and such) but my husband and I are living with my parents right now. We have two rooms to keep our loads of stuff in. I am trying to purge what I don't need or at least put more things into the storage unit. Its been crazy and I haven't had the time yet. Right now, I've got other priorities but once they are done (August 23rd is date), then I should be better off! Also my parents have a lot of stuff and I want to help them clean up so they can have a calm, organized environment!

Hello to everyone! I need this team! I have lived for so long with C.H.A.O.S. (Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome) that I can't remember a life without clutter. Decluttering is one of my other goals and hopefully, having to track it will help (it has so far.) I'm not a natural organizer. I don't look at a space and see how to get it all together. I even bought a book once "Organization for the Right-Brained Person" and lost it. Maybe as I get the clutter under control it will surface!

Hello, everyone! *waves*

I'm Cheryl, and have just discovered how much of a difference having an organized environment makes. I'm hopelessly addicted to Style's "Clean House" and was inspired to make changes in my own home. It's been an eye-opening experience, for sure!

My goal now is to guide my daughter away from being a pack rat to more organized herself. That hasn't been *quite* as easy... ^_^

Hi...My name is Monica.. I am returning to Spark after allowing stress and health issues to keep me from being successful last time. I have just been diagnosed with insulin dependent diabetes and pills to aid in the control of the levels. I have over 140lbs to lose and need to do it. I have three teenagers and care for my terminally ill mother along with my eleven year old brother and dad plus to dogs. I am in definite need of organization in my life. I feel as if I am drowning in chaos...I am so happy to be a part of this group,
Thank you and have a blessed day

emoticon Hi everyone! Just starting back on SP after falling off track. Twice. Third time's a charm, though, and I'm in this for the long haul.

While most areas of my home are fairly organized, I do want to spend the next few weeks tidying closets and cupboards. Then there are those rooms that need more work - the laundry room, the garage, and the dreaded "yard sale room". emoticon Time to finally organize everything and have the sale already! emoticon

I'm looking forward to losing weight and clutter with you all!

Michelle,

Thanks. The only reason I bring it up right away is comfort. I have found if I get to know people first, then mention it, they get uncomfortable and then ignore me. It hurts, to be honest.

But if I bring it up, and people are still interested in talking to me, it means they are interested in me for me, and won't turn away because of something I do behind closed doors.

Hi all,
Looking forward to sharing ideas on organization and health/wellness, and weight loss.
My name is Karen, I'm 58, retired and live with DH of 22yrs, and two 11 yr old Doxies. Life is Good!
Been on SP for 6 months and this has helped me to lose 10 lbs so far. Time to get going and take off 5 more, and so forth and so on... lol.

Hi Patricia Lynn,

It sounds as if you have a rough road ahead of you too. I hope the meds help with your weight loss. I'm not even going to touch the other subjects. LOL.

Anyway hello to you all and have a good one :)

Okay first of all my introduction is going to mention a few risque things, so consider yourself warned....

Hi, I am patricialynn. I am a 31 year old mother of three. I was skinny all of my life until I INTENTIONALLY gained weight - if you want to know why, please visit my sparkpage, I explain all there.

I realized lately that being overweight was just another way of letting evil people win, and thus I want to lose the extra pounds. However, I gained a LOT - and currently weight 315 lbs. I want to lose as much as I can by my next birthday, in February 2010.

Losing the weight has a couple of hard points to it - I have fibro, for starters, so I am in constant pain. But I got some medication today that might help with that, so here's hoping. Also, I recently discovered I am hypoglycemic, so I have to eat pretty regularly in small amounts to keep my blood sugar steady.

I volunteer as an editor for topix.com, in their human sexuality forum and their gay/lesbian forum. I am a bi-curious woman, polyamorous, currently in relationships with two wonderful men. I am also a submissive masochist and love BDSM, and bondage in particular.

Looking forward to meeting people who are going on the same journey of self-discovery and healthy change!

Hi, I'm Michelle, and I'm 38 years old. I would like to lose 80 pounds before I turn 40. I have been married for 16 years in October. We have two grown children one of whom lives with us. I have 3 dogs, and a Siamese cat. I have been going from place to place in my house, and taking 15 minutes at a time to organize my home. I have fibromyagia, so it takes me a little longer to clean, exercise, or lose weight. So far, I have lost 6 pounds in 2 weeks.

Hey guys! I'm finding myself with limited mobility due to a recently diagnosed medical condition, so I am trying to combine cleaning the house with losing weight with healthier cooking/eating to make me a healthier person at the end of a year!

My main goal is to keep this fun - the last thing I need is something else to make me miserable. Hehe!

Hello group!

I'm Matt from Minnesota. As others mention, it seems that over-eating, over-cluttering and over-accumulation go hand-in-hand.

Hopefully some of the organization tips I'm learning will re-inforce the new eating habits I am establishing!

HI to all!~!

My name is Lisa and I recently joined Sparkpeople. Over the past several years, a few pounds here and a few pounds there are really starting to add up. I think it would be a fantastic thing to get rid of clutter while getting rid of my excess weight. Seems like the two of them go hand in hand.
Look forward to meeting you and joining in with the goals!

Hi everyone! emoticon

I have been down this path before...twice over the last 10 years, I have put my house on a "1000 pound diet" by getting rid of the clutter that just seems to accumulate (guess who brings most of it home).

I work hard, clean it all up, get rid of junk and feel great - but I can't seem to STAY that way! I've got to start the house diet again and I'm looking forward to any ideas from this team to help me keep it in shape once I get it there!

Just joined this Team. Member here for almost 2 years I guess. Had no idea a team like this existed!
Organization is NOT my middle name for sure. I DREAD letting anyone come into my house! I would LOVE to get in more organized for sure! Hope I will see ideas on that subject!

Hello all,
thanks for allowing me to join the team.
Feel free to call me Buff, Buffedstuff or BS (ouch but you gotta laugh people life can throw some dirt in your cereal)

I have been floating around on this planet 48 years not counting womb time.
I am a business woman, so my job most of the time is to take care of business.I wear many hats( maybe it is simply a fashion statement )I am also a certified personal trainer. Who is working hard to be qualified.

I have been married to a brilliant piece of humanity all of my adult life, translated he is equally as flawed as I am so we make a great, perfectly flawed couple.
We did indeed reproduce......hey it seemed like a great idea at the time :) and we also have a precious grandchild.

My main goal is to stay healthy and strong. My major job is to safeguard my health and who knows I might even become a total hardbody along the way. (okay maybe it is simply old age revenge) Either way G-d willing I will do my part and then sit back and watch the fireworks ....

my organizationals skill have to continue to advance as my responsibilities advance so that is why I joined your precious team :)

Hello.. I'm Amanda, feel free to visit my sparkpage if you want to know anything else.

As far as the organization part, i am good at it, love being organized and love feeling the accomplishment of seeing an organized house but since I have moved in with my fiance i have let it all go to shambles! I am working on it! We have way too much stuff for my little house and we will be moving in two months so i need to start weeding stuff out!

Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels!

Hi, I'm Carolyn. I have a partially organized life. I now need to get an organized home. Part of my problem is probably related to procrastination. I always work better with a deadline, even though I often wait to the last minute to meet the deadline.

Hi, I'm Misty, and just discovered this site. It seemed to be calling to me!
Within the past week, i read an article on SP that said in order to do a better job at becoming physically healthy, you first had to make sure you were clutter free( Maybe, Psychologically healthy??)
Anyways, this weekend, I cleaned my car, study, and put winter clothes away, and put summer clothes into my closet. It is cathartic!
I've read a few of the discussions in this group. I LOVED the idea of mufti-colored hangers...WOW, I think I might fit in here emoticon

I'm Katt and I'm new to the group. I thought I'd stop by and introduce myself. I've discovered that my two goals (getting healthier and organized) are apparently linked to each other. The more I organize something, the more I want to cook healthy and actually pay attention to my weight and exercise habits. I can't explain it, but that's how my mind works.

I'm excited about getting started with this group because I currently have two and a half weeks to get into a serious routine before I start teaching summer school. If I can maintain my schedule through summer school then the next few semesters are no problem.

Hello everyone,

Greetings from wild and wonderful West Virginia. I'm Carol, a retired Grammy to 2 deeelightful grandbabes and Mom to 2 grownup joys as well. We are retired Air Force, having lived throughout the world, to include Berlin, Germany, and Washington DC.

My retirement life allows me time to enjoy travelling, golfing, jewelry making/beading, needlework, crocheting, and Mah Jongg.

I love anything that provides opportunities for self-discovery and becoming a better me. I share the same struggles and dreams as you in achieving that perfect body. I'll be joining in the challenges and exercise to be sure!

I think it is this retirement phase of life or just my personality...lol, but I feel the compulsion to simplify. I want to get rid of STUFF. Excited about the fact there is Spark team just for that....cool beans.

I've been ill and off of SP, so in coming back, I thought I would check out other teams to call home. I'm looking for an active, positive community and this one looks like it is a good match. I'm excited about getting to know each of you.

I'm off to check out this beautiful site....Just wanted to say hello and get started in making new friends!!

Hello to everyone. I am a newbie to Spark and having a lot of fun. I have recently started a business as a Professional Organizer and am having a lot of fun with that too. No matter what your disorganization, start with a "15 minute" clean up. You will be amazed at how much can get done in a short period of time and you won't feel totally overwhelmed. My goal is to get my husband organized...Our garage is a disaster, very embarrassing!

Hi! I'm Arelys, a self-confessed scatter brain. I was raised by two horribly OCD parents and yet none of that really stuck with me once I moved out.

I'm trying to be more organized because I know it will only make my life easier. My goals are to pretty much have everything in my life as organized as I possibly can. I don't want to be considered a scatter brain anymore!

Hi everyone. I joined this group because I have difficulty with being organised (actually, that's also really why I joined the site - health is just one of many things I want to be able to organise in my life). I have Asperger Syndrome, which makes organising difficult, so I'm always trying to find strategies and tips to organise my life. My goals are to be able to organise health, studies, work and housework all smoothly, but also not to have organisation become an obsession in itself that takes over from the things I'm actually trying to organise!

Hi I'm Jez. I just joined the team :) I had a look through the message boards and I like it so far :D I'm always up for learning new things and ways to be more organized.

Hi everyone! I have been living overseas for the past 4 years and am getting ready to move back to the States and go back to school. I feel like I'm closing a chapter of my life and want to do a total rehaul - which includes being happy with my body and organizing my life. I hope that we can share tips and support with each other! Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hello everyone:-)
My name is Melissa and I live in New Hampshire. I just started getting serious about losing weight at the end of Feb. Now I want to also work on getting my house cleaned up and organized. Both things have bothered me for some time now, so it would be great if I could find a way to do them simultaneously. I look forward to getting to know you all:-)

Welcome to all of the new members! There are a lot of us...weight and clutter sure do go hand-in-hand, don't they? I'm grateful for the support I'm getting in all areas of my life here on SparkPeople.

Hi guys!!! My name is Lisa. I am soo glad I found this team...I used to be OCD about organizing & stuff & somehow along the way it has fallen to the wayside & I soooo badly want to get back organized again. SO HERE I AM...young grasshopper ready to be taught!

I live in East Tennessee at the foot of The Great Smoky Mountains with my husband, Jack & our lovely canine child, Lacy!

I work at a bank as a teller & am hoping to move upward!

I love to buy baskets & organization stuff but when I got bigger I just didn't have the energy to keep stuff organized. WELL ya'll...I have gone from a size 16 to between a 10 & 12 & am ready to get organized again!!!

Thanks for letting me be a little spoke on this big wheel of organization!!!

Lisa
