Hi All, I'm a long-time Spark member. I was looking through the teams tonight trying to find one that was active and would be relevant to my circumstances. I think this team is a good choice. In fact, just today I had my acrylic nails taken off and am going back to my natural, and papery thin, nails in order to save money. DH and I are both retired but I work 4 days a week. I call it semi-retirement. I decided to go back to work two years ago so we could enjoy the finer things in life - like eating emoticon I've taken a good look at things and have come to the conclusion that I should be saving some money and not spending it on things that really aren't necessary - like getting my nails done every 2 1/2 weeks. So, it seemed like fate that I ran across this team today. I'm hoping to get some good tips and some encouragement and support here, and I hope I can contribute to the team. I'm tired of playing around with the same 20 lbs. and hope I can get in a mind-set that will keep me focused so I can finally get this weight off. emoticon

Hi, I am Carole-joined Sparkpeople in June 2014. looking for a group that posts actively and has some helpful info-this looks like the place! We moved to WV from AZ IN November of 2013 and no job yet emoticon What God has planned for us I don't know but my hubby has more "together" time with me then he could ever wish for-haha. He has told me a couple times that I really need to find a job (he is retired)! emoticon We have 2 dogs-Christie and Dolly and live in the basement of my sons house, so yes we are the "people under the stairs".

Hi, I'm new to this team, I'm Rachel and we live in sw VA. I saw this team when I was showing a friend the Spark web page to her and thought it would be good to join since DH is retiring in Jan but will be working at parttime job and we still have one in college. Trying to work with a budget more and also need to loose about 40 lbs. Any help would be appreciated. emoticon

I just joined this team because I saw it on some else's page and it seemed like a good deal. I had a stroke on Halloween 2013, and after living with son (after 5 weeks in hospitals) I am finally in my own apartment and on SS Disability. Visited a friend in California (I am now living in Texas) and came back and moved into my apartment last week. Now much furniture LOL because everything I had was 800 miles away in New Mexico, and not that great. It would cost me too much to go get it and my younger daughter is using it now. I'm basically starting all over right now. This seemed like a great team for me.

Hi all - Hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend!

I am new to the team. I'm a single mom with three teens on a very tight budget. I have a lot of weight to lose and I am not able to buy the type of foods that I would ideally LIKE to buy each week, so I do what I can with what I am able to do.

I have the advantage of my boss paying for WW meetings and we have a free gym at work. So that is working in my favor!

Hope to get to know everyone!

Sherry

Stay strong and be blessed!

Hello everyone -- My name is Karen -- I was a SP member a few years ago, but left and then regained the weight (actually yo-yoed up and down several times since then). I am back and determined to learn to lose it again and somehow not regain it all. Glad to be here!

Hi everyone emoticon I think I joined this team about two weeks ago but it has been crazy-busy since then and finally I have come up for air. I am 60 3/4ths emoticon and married with one adult daughter who lives about 900 miles north of me. I have no grandchildren. I haven't worked in nearly 6 years and I have recently applied for SSDI. I am hoping that I can find (and share) some tips on how to live "well" on a shoestring. I am not a coupon clipper so the best way that I have lived "well" is to prioritize within our budget. It works well for us until something out of left field happens (like needing new tires) and not having the money for them, just yet. I realize that I need to be a better planner so I hope that I can learn from all of your frugal fillies (and fellows if there are any).

Hi everyone, my name is Anne. Like lots of us, I'm new to this team, but not new to SP! I'm 44 and live near Phoenix, AZ with my 8 year old son. I am recently single and trying to fit into the realities of a reduced budget, all while making healthy nutrition choices and shedding 60 pounds. I love to read and hike (not at the same time!) and am looking forward to participating in this awesome group! emoticon

My goals to complete this growing season:
working on getting new steps and landing made for kitchen door- our primary access to home with a gable roof overhang to protect the landing from snow & ice. Then a new driveway, emoticon aerating the lawns, bringing compost, horse manure and wood chips to the gardens, removing extra lilacs and old fashioned phlox and emoticon transplanting perennials and re-doing the daylily bed and the blue garden next to the deck.

Did you know that wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, and Queen honey bees can sting multiple times. It is only the worker honey bee that can only sting once because they have a barbed stinger that comes out as they sting and they die.

Organizational ideas....I took a colorful plastic tissue box cover and turned it upside down and it holds all the remotes for the TV, VCR, DVD player, roku, etc all together..no more hunting. For my c-pap machine that kept "spitting out" the filters I put a rubber band around the machine and no more dusty nights for me! emoticon

Hi, my name is Pam(tweetyfitn60) and as a person who hasn't worked in nearly 6 years this fall and living on one income (my DH), I both want for us to be healthy and avoid the doctor (don't have health insurance presently) but also to lose weight in the process. I think like most people we talk about (okay complain) how much it costs to eat healthy. I did have a plot in an organic community garden for 3 years but I found that it was more "play" than "pay out" since between the weather, bugs and critters, we didn't realize enough fresh organic produce to have more than a few meals at a time. It was a good experience but it did leave me wondering how to afford to eat healthy without busting the bank. I hope I have come to the right place.

Hi, everyone. My name is Angela, aka jonniebleu! I joined SparkPeople a few years ago. I
did fairly well until my interest level waned. I seem to be able to stick to something for just so long until I lose interest. I jokingly say I have ADD, but I seriously believe it's a possibility. I have never joined a group, not intentionally, at least! I may have by randomly clicking buttons, but not to join! Anyway, I think it's time I give it a shot at being held accountable. I am 44 yrs old, soon to be 45 on May 23. I was a member of Curves until recently. I had to cancel my membership because my husband got a $4/hr pay CUT! My downfall on the diet is being able to afford the food I'm supposed to eat on the plan. I love the recipes on SparkPeople and my husband does, as well. I'm hoping this group can help me figure out how to continue to eat healthy, when the healthier the food, the more expensive! Well, I'm rambling. I will share more later!

Hello all! My name is Brook. I'm a 34 year old stay at home mom to 2 gorgeous girls ages 1 and 10. We stay very active. I love running with my bob jogging stroller. I have been a stay at home mom now for over a year and I love it. Prior to doing this I was a group fitness instructor and massage therapist. I have been a spark member since 2007. I have lost 60lbs since having my second daughter now, but would love to loose 10-20 more. I am looking for like minded happy, inspiring people to help motivate me when I have moments of weakness. Because don't we all have those moments. OK look forward to getting to know you all. :)

I have posted a couple of times but never introduced myself. My name is Vannie, I am retired and have learned how to make a life without my daily 9 to 5 constraints. I don't mind living on a shoe string, I have always lived frugally by choice. But have done some fun things.

Hi Peggy. Sorry for your loss and good for you reaching out for support.
I am from Southern Oregon and I have been on spark for a while. I am married and have a 17 year old daughter who will be starting college next year. Financially it is tough but what got me to sign up for this team is that Happiness is a state of mind. I need to work on that because after all we have one life to live and it's time to get healthy and happy.

My name is Peggy & I live in Lakewood, Colorado--a suburb of Denver & I live with my cat Tigger & my puppy Lady. My life changed on July 3 of this year when my husband passed away after battling esophageal cancer for 3 years. It is a struggle financially but I have to find ways to really cut back.

Good Morning all,

My name is Beth....I live in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee. I love the pic of the tennis shoes and the hot pink shoelaces. That is what caught my eye first, but then when I read your team, I was drawn to it because I really need to tighten my belt. My husband and I were doing okayl, then he lost his job. I have never had to be the bread winner so this has been a super challenge for me. I still had my mindset of the old us and wanted to do vacations, eat out etc. Which, by just joining SP (again) what I have saved by preparing my meals at home is amazing in just that! But along the way because of depression I have gained so much weight, I am at my heaviest. But on an upside of this, My hubby has a job again I am going to focus of digging my way out of debit!! And getting back in shape and let this lifestyle change be it for me. I am almost 50 and it is time!!!!!

Hi! I am Heide. I have been unable to work for a year. I was diagnosed with cancer and have been through a series of surgeries and am about to go through more. While I was working, I leant money and was able to make money. Now I have no income, went through all savings and credit, had a grown daughter move home who won't pay a cent toward bills, uses my car and gas whenever she can, and has eaten me out of house and home. She is about 60 pounds heavier than me and only 2 inches taller, but feels that it is her RIGHT to be fat since I am (now). At her age I was a size 12-14 (always been busty) and active in three sports, including teaching skating (something I used to compete in) at the local roller rink and taking her along to exercise. She says *I* have a problem with my body image, she likes being fat. Of course, she is brilliant and qualified but cannot get a job (and refuses to believe hiring managers are prejudiced against the overweight). I am past the shoe string, I feel like I am living on a spider web. I have asked the numerous people who owe me money for ANY payment and have received none. There is about $25,000 out in all.

Greetings all,

I've been on a roller coaster of stress for the last several years, with DH's health problems & money running neck & neck. My goals are to reduce stress AND stress eating, and increase my income enough to handle rent & bills without help from family... oh, and lose 50-60 lbs

Hi everyone, I am Stacey and I have been a sparkpeople member for 6 weeks. I have had my ups and downs and am still struggling to gain momentum.

The last time I lost a significant amount of weight it was with the help of an expensive personal trainer. Well, I quit my very stressful job last year so I can no longer afford that luxury. I am now a self employed freelancer on a MUCH tighter budget.

I love the idea of trading tips about losing weight on a budget. I know it does not have to be expensive.

Hi my name is JoAnn, I am not new to budgeting but new to the idea of saving money instead of spending the extra money.

“Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the ‘someday I’ll’ philosophy.” ~Denis Waitley

Welcome, Jackie!

Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn’t.

Hi I'm Jackie in NH.
Recently our family has gone through an unexpected income loss, and it's time to get creeative with saving.
Yesterday I realized that especially with health care, I must be very proactive.

Hello, all! I am a long-time fan of anything frugal, and my favorite books are the "Tightwad Gazette" compendium and the "Frugal Foodie Cookbook." I'm looking forward to sharing ideas and inspiration with one another!
