Hello Everyone,
I am fairly new to Sparkpeople, but loving it so far. And when I found a message board supporting a sound lifestyle, well I thought that sounded like a good place to learn things.

Dh & I are both self employed, so we watch our finances to protect our future. Low cost meals, good re-using ideas and a smile here and there is all that I'm looking for. I wish you all well!

Fran

Hello everyone =) this is the third or so time I've attempted sparkpeople although it did not fail me...I failed spark. I get discouraged and give up way to easily. This is the last time however, I've got to start feeling better. I'm 28 years old and have been obese probably 20 of those years. I have 2 beautiful daughters that I want to see grow up and I want to live a long healthy life with my husband.

Hi everyone. I'm a 48 year old stay at home mom. My son is 15 years old. Several years ago he was diagnosed with ulcers, acid reflux and Ibd/ibs. I used to work full time as a preschool teacher, but when my son took ill, I quit to care for him. Now I'm trying my hand at writing,hoping to bring in some extra income. My husband makes great money with his company but we still struggle to get the things we need. Because we are both self-employed we have zero insurance. This means we spend alot of money each month for doctors, therapy and medicine. All the stress, and constant access to food since I'm at home has caused me to put on some weight. I'm hoping spark people will help me lose weight and gain my sanity.

Hi from Colorado. I've been a spark member for a couple of years and just saw this team featured in my side column. I've been unemployed for two years now and husband for 6. We're just trying to survive in this economy too. I sure hope I can find at least a temp job to get us to the end of the year.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

Hi, I'm a mom of two beautiful children though not actually a single mom. I have a wonderful fiancee. I'm back in school to get my degree and he just finished school. We are on a very tight budget and really struggling but we are trying the best we can to make it. We keep wondering when things will work out for us to be able to have a home (we are staying with my parents right now) and another vehicle (we have one very old SUV with a lot of mileage on it). We get through a day at a time. This economy has hit us hard and we are trying to work through it, literally and figuratively. I hope to make many friends and get wonderful hints here.

Hi all! This is my first day and I'm trying to check in with all the teams I want to be involved with. My husband and I feel like perpetual college students. We're both going for a second degree after an extended period of getting a bachelors degree while working full time. Sometimes we wonder if we'll ever have real jobs, a house, and a life. In the meantime, our budget is ridiculously low but we try and make the best of it and just enjoy being together. I'm really hoping to find someone to connect with here or on another team to help reach our fitness goals.

Hi Everyone. I joined this team today, tho' I've been a Sparker now for over 3 years, so some of the names on this team are familiar. I am a single senior who hopes to retire next year and looking for ways to cut back on spending or living within my means. Look forward to sharing tips & ideas with all of you.

Hey! I'm Karla, currently in Las Vegas, NV. I am a very proud wife and mommy! My husband is in the military so we live on a very tight budget but we are managing. After my son was born 5 months ago I worked for almost 2 months before deciding to stay home full-time with him. It has been one of the best decisions I have made as a mommy. The one on one attention is great.

We have cut back on a lot of expenses.. the biggest one NOT eating out! :) Which has been really beneficial for our health and financially. I'm actually starting to enjoy cooking and it's so much more healthy!

Hope everyone the best of luck on the journeys life takes them on!

Hi, my name is Louise, I am 42 years old, married for 25 yrs and I live in Perth, Western Australia.

I was born in England but have lived in OZ since I was three.

I have 6 kids including two homegrown adult daughters and 4 permanent foster children.

I have a lot of weight to lose but I am so glad I found this site as you all seem to be very supportive
of each other.

I find it easier to lose weight when you have people to be accountable to and someone to cheer for you. I hope I can do that for others too.

Hello Everyone, My name is Cherryl. I am about ready to retire and spend QT with my already retired Hubby. Our life style has changed and will change more when I retire. I look forward to living more simply. We are moving in a few months. We decided that Oregon is going to be our home. We are excited about this new adventure. It is nice to meet everyone and look forward to your support and help and hopefully being an asset to the team. Keep Sparkin'.

Hi, I have been a member for a while. I just do not post much. But I do read all the posts.

Our lives are a sum total of the choices we have made.
- Wayne Dyer

"We must not allow other people's limited perceptions to define us" -Virginia Satir.

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you, too, can become great.
- Mark Twain, writer and satirist

Do something for somebody every day for which you don't get paid.
- Albert Schweitzer, philosopher, musicologis

Myra in West Texas here. Have been looking for a team, or two or three and decided I'd probably like this one. I'm a member of a frugal forum elsewhere on the web and find it good help and good reading.

I live on a budget 1) because I have to and 2) it helps to control the money in order to have things you want through savings from not spending wastefully

There was a time when there was plenty. It seems today that life is not that much different. The things I gave up, I never really needed.

I'm brand new to this site. I'm a homeschooling mom with six of our nine kids still at home. We are living on a DRASTICALLY reduced budget, and it's about to get TERRIFYINGLY smaller soon! I have NO idea how I'm going to feed my family healthy foods (we do not eat out often, do fast food regularly, or eat a lot of junk food) and balanced meals on what money I will have to work with. I need HELP!!! Marilyn

Hi, I'm Wheeze, and I like to eat. :)

It's true, I do, but I am ready to eat things that are good for me! I try to keep a positive mind for everything, and laugh. Gotta laugh. Ready to hang out with you all and keep on my track!
