Hi I'm Kristina. I've been with spark for a while, but just recently getting back serious about it. Started tracking what I eat and drink and exercise. I don't exercise much yet, but I'm wanting a step counter and I'm getting one...except it's from a kickstarter campaign and I don't know when I will actually being receiving it. I'm also trying to decrease debt and get rid of the CLUTTER.

I'm a...borderline? hoarder. Possibly all hoarder. Though not a cat hoarder, certainly. I have 5, but they are healthy and happy and that's not just my opinion. The elderly cat isn't as healthy as he used to be but that's life, I guess.

My clutter is everywhere. A lot of it has dirt and filth as well, which is why flylady is also on my new list of things to do. I downloaded the cozi app she recommended and the to-do list setup works really well for me.

My goals are: no clutter, no debt, everything within a day of perfectly clean (with effort) and about 15 lbs lower than I am now.

Hi, I'm Ruth-Ann and just got back to SP after a busy summer/autumn. I've been a sparkmember for 2 yrs now!

I need the extra support to stay on my low-carb diet due to my diabetes. Also, we have a local teenager who will be rooming with us for the rest of this school year starting the first week of January, so I need to clean out, declutter, compact and condense a whole room which has been collecting "junk" (stuff that we just didn't have a place for) ever since my son graduated from college and moved down south a year ago!

I'm Patty and I've been on SP for 4 years now. Backsliding a bit and want to get organized for Christmas. Hoping I can do it.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Hi, Everyone,

I am recently retired and need to lose about 15 pounds and get rid of 20 + years of STUFF! The first to go will be my parents' belongings that have been living in my house for years. Both parents have passed away and it's time to finally find new homes for their things that we can't use.

I am such a procrastinator when it comes to de-cluttering our home. This team sounds like just the ticket for getting support while working on my de-cluttering list and suggestions on how to accomplish it. Maybe I'll even find my exercise room again under all of the boxes!!

Hi, I'm Heather. I'm 31 yrs old, single mom of 2 girls from Hampton, VA. I just joined the team, but I've been a member of SparkPeople for years. Along with trying to lose weight, I'm trying to get my house in order. We have a small house with 3 of us living here, but each of us has A LOT of stuff! It's very cluttered! Trying to get organized and could use the advice and support of you all!

Hi, I'm Carrie. I'm a 32 year old single mother and graduate student. I have a wonderful 8 year old son for whom I tend to serve as team mom for his baseball and football teams. It pains me that I can never host spaghetti dinners (I have the CHAOS- can't have anyone over syndrome) and I can't ever participate in the end of the year Parents-vs- Kids games because I struggle with asthma and being out of shape. I think this group might be good for helping me with both.

Thanks for letting me into the group.

Hello- hope you have room for one more on your team. I will tell you about myself. I am from the midwest-wisconsin- 66yrs young-married 47 yrs. and have 3 grown children. I try to keep active and really would like to be on a team and get suggestions of fitness and organization. What a dream team, Just saw this team on Spark today and what a great concept. emoticon And my name is Betty.

To dream of the person you would like to be is to waste the person that you are. Be true to yourself and enjoy life.

Hi, I'm Kathy, from SW Pennsylvania! I was excited to come across your Team from another team's page. What this team is about is what I'm about! Having my physical self in better shape will also get me moving in other directions, and one of my primary desires is to be better organized and more disciplined in my preparing my home as a pleasant place to want to be. I'm at the right place, aren't I?? emoticon

Hello...love the concept of the Fit & Organized team. This is so doable if I become intentional about it. I have signed up AGAIN, under a different username (of course), so I can get motivated, stay motivated and become healthy mentally, physically and emotionally...and now I can add organized. Love it.

I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Phil 4:13

Hello. I was faithful to sparks several years ago but let life get in the way and dropped out. I started again this past December and have been making progress. I am working on my fitness but I struggle with clutter. I am hoping I can gain support and organizational skills as I lose weight.

Hello my name is Amanda and I'm starting over again rather than giving up. I'm looking forward to being able to lose weight as well as have my home lose weight. I am the mother of three wonderful boys (2 live with me) and all of their clutter. I think that some of my weight issues is that I have never changed my surroundings to suit what I want in life.... so here goes nothing and I will change myself and my home.

This can be done!

Hello, My name is LeeAnn and I am packing to move. Since we are downsizing we have to get rid of A LOT of stuff. We are going from a 2200sq ft house to a 1200 sq ft apartment.

I need some help and advice on what to keep and what to get rid of. EVERY thing has a memory or some one gave it to me, or it could be useful some day....

I want to know how do I determined what is something that is Really sentimental or just some one gave me whom I loved and cared for. I need help separating my feelings for this stuff.

I keep telling my self, "It is just a________, it doesn't mean I don't love my (family or friend.)"



Live, Laugh, Love.

Hi - I'm Viola. Soon to be 53 and decided with all the life changes going on in my home (recently empty-nester, recently retired hubby, recent married son, etc.) it's time to focus on ME for a change - well.... mine & my husbands health too.
Looking forward to getting fit, AND looking forward to getting some organization done too!

Check out the 10 minute and 15 minute topics. Decluttering and cleaning 10 to 15 minutes at a time helped me to organize all my closets. It just made it seem less impossible.

Hi y'all! I joined Sparkpeople a couple of days ago because I need to loose about 10 pounds, but mostly because I want to be more active. We have 4 kids and I am doing my Bachelor's degree so finding time to be active has been challenging. I joined SP on Sunday and the daily tracker has already helped me realize that I can fit 10 minutes here and there into my schedule to do some exercises at home several times a day, and it all adds up.

Now I joined this group because our home is so chaotic! Drives me crazy! Most of the stuff is my husband's, he is a packrat and hates throwing anything away. Can't force him to be organized, but I can change my own habits and make most of the house look tidy. I'm hoping that if I can get organized, he will follow my example.

Life is made up of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad, but the bad things don't spoil the good things or make them unimportant.

OK...I need this. I am having success on the health goals. I have lost 43 pounds since the first of January. I have gone from a size 22 to a size 16. I have at least 30 pounds left to go.
My house...my classroom....a mess. I really want to de-clutter and simplify so I can turn my attention to creating art.
I hope this team will give me challenges and other motivators to get this done!

Susan, Good for you for not giving up and Welcome. Feel free to ask us anything and I hope you get a lot of good advice here.

Never mistake failure as final

They call it a diet, but it's really my life.

Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.

I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.

I'm Susan from Central Virginia. I have about the same story as a lot of people. I get motivated and lose some weight and all of the sudden I'm on another track. I will be 65 next month. I retired from the telephone company in '97 and since then have been employed in the education field at a community college. I have been divorced many years with 2 grown children and 5 grandchildren. My interests are my pets, my kindle, and sometimes, house plants.

Even at almost 65, I haven't given up on losing the weight and each day is a new day. I used to want to lose for my appearance but now I want to lose for my health. I used to walk for hours at a time but now I'm struggling at 15 minutes. I want to get that stamina back.

I joined this forum because I'm not organized at all in my home. For a while I used the flylady concept which is great and good way to focus but I want to get more advice on how everyone manages their home.

Welcome

Never mistake failure as final

They call it a diet, but it's really my life.

Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.

I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.

Love the idea of a 6 week challenge! I think we can help you meet your challenge. Let us know if there is anything specific that you would like to work on. I can probably created a short term challenge on that area.

Hi I'm Missygeen,
I have been a member of spark for 3 years. I have had some success and some struggles but definetely lifestyle changes. Now I am giving myself a 6 week challenge to improve my nutrition, fitness and professional development. I came across this team by reading a spark friends page and thought "hey this might help me out" Also organization is something that I have struggled with for years and nothing has seemed to help me. I would get it done and be right back to my old habits in no time. I am willing to do the work to tackle this problem.

Sorry, I've been MIA again. I'm working on some major changes in my life. I started an exercise program that I love and am keeping up with fairly well as well as a new Goal approach / plan. I'm working on changing / quitting some of my medications - after some research I believe I'm taking so much medication that it's starting to do more harm than good. At the same time I will be slowly adding in soem vitamines. After that is under control I think I will have a clearer head to start on my eating issues. I've also given up some extra activities like the Wednesday Woman's Bible study class, Celebrate Recovery at church and we told my niece she had to leave. It was hard, but I believe it was the right thing to do. I still love my job, but it sure keeps me busy, but that's a good thing. On a sad note, I did have to have my cat put down yesterday. We had her for about 10 years and she was MY baby. I was the only person she liked and I'm gonna miss our nightly petting ritual and our morning petting ritual followed by my sharing my breakfast with her. So I guess I'm on to a new phase of life, or at least I hope so.

Hi Beck! I'm new too! What a positive attitude! I know exactly what you mean by being organized at work, but chaotic at home. Story of my life. lol

My name is Lisa, and I'm from the northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I telecommute most days for a job I LOVE!. I am an IT Project Manager for the US Forest Service. I spend alot of time in our local National Forests, and while I can't get "out there" and save our forests, it is an awesome feeling to be able to support those who do.

I joined SparkPeople several years ago and took off 38 pounds, which I have managed to maintain. I'm back now to continue to journey to a healthy weight and BMI. Our family dynamics have changed drastically in the past couple of years, so I'm back with a new account and a fresh outlook.

I had to giggle when this group showed up as something I might be interested in, because the house needs some serious attention - and my goal is re-establish a calm, reflective haven from the outside world. Glad to be here!

My name is Beck. I am a mother to two wonderful daughters, aged 12 and 14. The older girl has a mild form of autism. The younger is riddled with psychiatric problems, and her diagnosis seems to change yearly. I am married to a beautifully quirky engineer, who works for two separate game companies on the side (one computer gaming, one board gaming). I also host two somewhat dysfunctional cats in my home. I am slightly physically challenged, due to a rare neurological condition which affects my strength, sensation and balance (but affords me free trips to the DC area yearly as I participate in a study at the NIH).

At work, I am an organizational maven. I thrive on organization and order. Yet my home is a dirty, cluttered mess! I am determined to harness my knowledge and strength to bring order to this home, instead of wallowing in my weaknesses and challenges.

Hi! Just joined the team. I am married with 3 children and 2 pets ( 1 cat and 1 dog ). The whole family keeps me on my toes. I am always looking for ways to be more organized and get fit at the same time. Hope to make new friends. :)

Hi everyone,
I joined this team because my husband and I are about to move in a few weeks, and I want to start out in a new place with good habits and not let the new house get like the old one could. I do a lot of knitting, crocheting, and every other kind of messy hobby there is, so lots of clutter-management is helpful. In terms of fitness - I recently had a stillborn baby, and am working hard on getting in shape to try again and have a healthy baby in the future, and to deal with grief in a healthy way (exercise). I've got about 69 pounds I want to lose, and we move in 2 weeks, so nice to meet you!

Hi all,

What an awesome idea for a team! Because really, having a decluttered environment externally helps declutter the internal environment and leads to weight loss and success! In my experience anyway.

I am 40 years old, have 3 year old twin boys, and work nearly full-time outside our home. I am also a FlyLady fly-baby who's been shining my sink for years! I kinda got overwhelmed with the first few years of life with twin this late in life and stopped keeping up with all the healthy habits. Now that the boys are a little older, I am feeling ready and able to get my daily flying sparkliness back!!

So glad I found this team!

Welcome all new members. I'm so excited for this year. Although it hasn't started out that great, I'm insisting it will get better and stay that way. And not just for me, but for you too. I can't wait to get to know you better and find out how we can help each other.

I finally told the niece that lives with us that she has to move out by the end of February. I know she's not happy, but it's not my fault she is the way she is. I'm also contemplating stopping teaching a Wednesday Bible Study I teach. I think one of the reasons I'm having a hard time taking care of myself is that I'm doing a little too much in other areas of life. It's a hard decision, but I know it's the right one, now I just have to do it. Ugh, I hate telling people no. However I am glad and a little proud of myself for starting a new exercise routine. It's interval training and it's so easy to stick to. I think I may have found my 'nitch' in exercise.

They call it a diet, but it's really my life.

Hi All,

I'm new to the team. I looked over some of the topics, and these are areas in my life that I need to address. I definitely have a lot of clutter, and this group seems to be the perfect fit for motivating me to begin to de-clutter!

I am married with a very active and demanding 2 year old daughter. I work full-time, and I am looking forward to meeting everyone else!

Hi all! I have baby weight to loose and as you can imagine with a new baby or house could use a little help too. My resolutions for 2013 is to loose the baby weight and get back to a healthy weight as well as getting my house in order. My oldest stepson graduates from high school at the end of May so I'd really like to get things in order by them. What else can I say about me? Live on a farm, now a stay at home mom, have two older step sons, but this baby is my first. I'm still adjusting to balancing my schedule with baby's.

That's right! I'm Awesome and so are you!

Hello All,
New to the team. I am looking forward to exchanging encouragement, ideas and stories with others that want to declutter their homes and bodies. I look forward to getting rid of clutter and stress while gaining motivation and peace. It never ceases to amaze me how much stuff I really don't need, but somehow manage to hold onto none the less.

Don't look back, you're not going that way.

Welcome!

You are in the right place for support. I understand the pack rat thinking. I have additional spin - unwanted and/or unused gifts - some more than 20 years old and still in the box. I always kept them because of the person who gave it to me. Now, I realize it is time to recycle, re-gift (carefully), or donate those items. All of my storage space is full.

Hi Joan - Welcome to the team. I can sure relate to your situation. I think I am a packrat too. You never know when something might come in handy right? It seems that just about the time you get rid of something is the time you need it. Lol.
They say that if you haven't used it in 6 months chances are you can do without. I disagree.

Anyway, like you sister did, a little each day will add up. Best of Luck. emoticon

My name is Joan and I really need to get organized this year....that is going to be one of my main goals this year, other than getting healthier.....so I figure this should get a handle on it for me.....my sister spent the month of December getting rid of something every day without fail, so I guess it's my turn to get rid of some of my clutter.....*sigh* dare I say it...I am a packrat, but then so are my husband and my son....who lives with us. I am disabled and have to use a walker to get around.

BELLA227 and Linda, I'm glad you joined. I hope you get as much from this team as I have.

New Year is not starting the greatest. I'm still sick, I'm fighting with the niece that's living with us, I didn't sleep well last night and I'm starting to have bad dreams. So I'm going to try to tell myself that all the bad stuff is out of the way.

Hello! I'm Lindy. Our house is a wreck so figured this would be a good team to join. I'm committed to losing weight and getting fit so might as well commit to getting the house in shape too! Have a great week!!

Hi all! I am Mandi and a new member of sparkpeople. I also have a family of 5 people and 7 pets in a small home so organization is necessary. Unfortunately with busy lives its not always done so well. Hopefully this year will be different. I'm really hoping to keep my home and health in line :)

Welcome Susan and I think you've stumbled on to a great team too. Can't wait to get to know you better.

Never mistake failure as final

They call it a diet, but it's really my life.

Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.

I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.
