Hi, Leah. emoticon You've come to the right place. So many of us wish we had started out aggressively paying off money we owed. Keep on track.

Hello all!
My name is Leah. I graduated college about a year and a half ago but am not currently working in the field that I studied in college. My husband has another semester left of college. Between the two of us we have A LOT of student loans that we want to start paying off agressively. We live very simply, we only have one car. I have been a heavy coupon user for about a year now.

I lost a little over 20 pounds here on SP since the new year. I did it mostly by working out at home with workout dvds I got from the library and eating less and some different things. I've learned so much especially about nutrition from SP and books that I've read.

I would love to connect with others we share my beliefs on living simply and getting out of debt. That's why I joined :)

Hi, Boni. I DDL is a police dispatcher on the midnight weekend shift, so I know what havoc that makes with an eating schedule. I wish success for you.

Hi I am Boni,
I am not new to SP, but new to the team. At 62 years old I know it is very important that I get this 100 pounds off I have to lose, to keep my diabetes in check, and to exercise. I love to chat and getting and giving encouragment to all the team is a great thing.

I live on a farm and we have cattle, dogs, cats, chickens, a horse and any other critter that strays in we take care of. Oh we have doves also and two canadian geese have joined us for spring on our pond. I would guess they may be setting. I live in central KY and have all my life. I work full time on midnights and for the past 18 years have been a police dispatcher. It has been very rewarding as my husband has disabilities which keep us in a situation where we have to be very Frugal with our spending.
I have to get back to work but hope all of you have a blessed Wednesday.

If the Lord brings you to it He will take you through it....
Boni in KY.

Hi, my name is Joanne. I have a severely autistic daughter, and because of the care involved with my DD I only have a small amount of work, so we rely on my husband's income. I need to lose weight to stay healthy and take care of my responsibilities, but like most people I am finding it more difficult to stay within budget when it comes to paying bills. One of my best moves, though was joining sparkpeople. I was at weight watchers and admittedly, it is a good plan, but an expensive one. I look forward to participating in this team.

Hi Everyone!
I am not exactly new to the team but it has just taken me a while to figure out how the whole team thing works. I'm really enjoying my SparkTeams, finally, and love "chatting" with so many people. I have been a Sparker for several years but I am finally taking the time to really enjoy it and reap the benefits. I have been married for 17 years and have two children (girl 13, boy 7.) I work part-time. Right now, I am tackling this lifestyle change as exactly that. I am hoping to lose a total of 30-40 pounds. Recently, I joined a team challenge to lose 10 pounds by May 31st. I am loving the challenge!! This is the first time I have joined a team challenge and I am really enjoying it! Taking one day at a time. The first 10 pounds will be huge for me...I really need to prove to myself that I can do this! Happy Monday to All!
