Hola I am Lisa La Mexiholic
My dad taught me the basics of frugal living, budgeting when I was young. Living a simple life is very challenging and I have recently been force to pare down and simplify more. Laid off, living on unemployment and food stamps. I am continually trying to introduce some frugality to my daughter. She too is struggling, finding it difficult to pare down more than what is was before. More important is our health and we need this time to focus on our food budget and keeping it healthy with the small amount allotted for spending. I am sure there will be great ideas here and hope to share some great successes in getting healthy along the way.

Hi all. I'm Mobius and live in Oregon. I'm single and live with my dog who takes up the biggest part of my food budget. Imagine that. I've only been on Sparkpeople for a week and I've learned so much already. Sometimes I feel like I'm having a informational overload. However, I'm ready for more info on saving.

Hi, my name is Sonia, and I'm a 31 year-old stay-at-home Mom from Massachusetts. I was a preschool/kindergarten teacher for 10 years, and I'd love to go back to work soon. I'm trying to find a preschool for my 3 year-old son who has a severe speech delay. My husband, son, and I had been living in Arizona for 3 years, but now we're in Massachusetts again -- hoping for better work and school opportunities.

I've lost about 55 pounds in the past 7 years, but I have at least 30 to go. I don't own a scale at the moment -- and can't afford to buy one (until my husband gets more overtime at work -- lol -- hopefully by then scales will be on clearance!!)

I have a feeling everything is going to come together for us this year. Work, family, school -- and a healthy weight for me!!

2012 is going to be an awesome year!!

~ Sonia ~

Hi-I'm new to sparks people, but not new to being frugal :) We've been following Dave Ramsey's budget system for a little over two years now, and in that time we've paid off over $16,000 in credit card debt, paid cash for a small sailboat, and have created a sound financial plan for our future :) The past few months we've gotten lax about our budget, but we want to buy a bigger boat in the next couple years, so we're getting back on track right now :)

Hello! Although I joined this team last year when I joined Sparkpeople, I haven't kept up with it so I thought I'd introduce myself! My name is Joy, I'm a 33 year old mom of one. I've made a renewed committment to focusing on eating healthy and losing weight and I want to take advantage of the resources on here. I've also made a resolution to trim my spending and save money. Can't wait to get started!
