Hi everyone! My name is Melissa and I am 23 years old from North Carolina. I joined Spark a little over a year ago but soon fell off the wagon! However, I hopped back on the wagon this past May and have stayed on ever since, losing a total of 53lbs.... so far! I live by the philosophy that happiness is a state of mind and if something bad happens, oh well- there is tomorrow! So I definitely try not to let anything get me down and I think this team will help me maintain that outlook! After all, life is too short to dwell on the negative!

Hi! I am Pam and am interesting in joining the team. I have been living 3 years so far on low wages and what little I can produce on the hobby farm. I personally think our chickens have helped us save so much money..it helps when my husband is only able to find PT work and I am doing temp labor. But all is GOOD and the smiles are still found in abundance!

Do not waste time, for that is the stuff life in made of.

I saw a member page and I saw my favorite comment from a Brit Flix Dr show.
A pregnant woman with 3 very young kids was talking to her DR, she was upbeat and smiling and the Dr said, how do you do it with these kids and another one coming.
Her Answer in a thick Scottish Brogue was~~~~~~~~~~~

" Happiness is just a state of mind Dr. you must know that to be true"

Happiness is just a state of mind is my MANTRA---HAPPINESS!emoticon
I knew I had to join this team Pat in Maine.

Pat in Maine.
I FEEL Healthier every day with my Spark Tracker.
I will do it slowly I like it that way.
Toodle-ooo! and Toodle- Pip!
JUST DO IT!

Be mindful that happiness isn't based on possessions, power, or prestige, but on relationships with people we love and respect.

Remember that while money talks, Friendships sing and laugh out loud.

Hello! Thanks for the Welcome (Mat) "Goodie"! The note with it said it was from the team (not an individual member). So, Thanks, team! : )

I think it makes more sense to focus on the change in behavior, rather than the result (as a goal), because the result will occur with the accomplishment of the behavioral goal. (Do I sound like I'm on the Big Bang Theory?)

Kaizen: Small, continuous improvements.

I'M BRINGING SEXY BACK! I don't know where it went. Where do those lost pounds go? Is it the same place as the socks missing from the drier?


491 Days since:  Starting 10+ minutes a day of exercise SparkStreak! : )

ello just joined.
It is my 67th birthday so this is my giftto myself
support and a hug now and then
we lost big money in stocks a few years ago. then I used credit cards and just went bersirk.
Then only way out bankruptcy. We are on for 3 years but now it is down to 18 months. reality set in and using sparkmoney budget to keep going. Everything is going up for hubby and I from ins. car repairs, medicine, drs and you know the drill.
We live on SS and his pension to pay our lock box 1995 an monthly bills which usually leaves us with about 15.00 at end of month.
Hubby works and this money goes into repairs, and upkeep on ur big old house which is falling apart as I speak. At our age we did not anticipate the stress andrelize I am at fault for it all. Trying o come to gribts with life and sruggle with money makes me eat sweets and eatjust to be eating. when I cut into the budget first to go is grocery money which right now sept 4th used 40.00 of the 200 for another bill. Need advice, friends, support.

I went to the search bar for sparkteams and typed in happiness and this team came up. I think I'm in the right place :)

Hi, I'm Heather. I'm 29 yrs old. I'm a single mom of 2 little girls from Hampton, VA. I've struggled with my weight for years. My highest weight was 220 and I'm now at 179. My goal weight is 119. (I'm 5'1). I just started running this year and it's really changed my life. I have completed 3 races so far and have my 4th race coming up this weekend, a half marathon, my first half marathon! Very excited and a little nervous! My only goal is to finish. I'm also training for another half marathon that's in March. That one will be a time goal. Right now I'm about changing my life and making it better for myself and my girls. I just want to be happy and enjoy life.

Heather

Hi my name is Natasha I am 50 years young and live in California. I have 2 beautiful girls and a husband of 27 years that I am tired of but thats another chapter of my life. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes almost 2 years ago and am doing pretty good. I have been living on a shoestring budget for the last 4 years when I got hit hard by the economy, lost my job and to take a 30% cut in salary. Things are tough and I'm tired of barely living from paycheck to paycheck, so I hope I can find some money saving tips here.

I love finding new ways to save money and I have a tendency to overthink and over- worry about things, so I need to work on that. I also homeschool.

Can't wait to jump in and get started!

Hi, my name is Jackie. I am a 50 year old mother of four and grandmother of 10. I am from Georgia, and I have Type 2 diabetes, which has proven to be a very costly disease. Three of my neighbors and I have formed our own walking group and we try to walk at least two miles a day weather permitting. I hope by exercising everyday and eating more fruits and vegetables to lose weight and cut down on my meds so that I can be healthier and save money. I look forward to getting to know all of you.

Hi all. Donna from Hammond, La. which is on the North Shore across the lake from New Orleans. I'm 60 years young (at least my mind thinks that way even if the body is telling me different). Been struggling with my weight all my adult life & have been a Sparker for 2 years (off & on). This is the only resource that has helped me loose weight & at least help me to keep trying. Without it, I'd be constantly unhappy with myself. Having all my Spark Friends have also kept me in a positive state of mind & they have been my support when I'm at my lowest.

It's great meeting you all & hope I can add some of that encouragement & support back.

Hi. My name is Christal, that is what the C stands for, and I am here because I need some mental support and getting the negatives out of my mind. I have been part of Sparkpeople since December 2008, dealt with a lot of stress in my time and now I am ready to be set free.

Hey all, just saw this team. I've been living on a shoestring all my life, even when it wasn't cool. It's how I was raised. I am the one who drives the oldest car, lives in the most boring house, has the fewest clothes (and smallest closet) and it took until I was past 50 (I'm 63) to feel comfortable choosing less.

I'm glad to have found fellows in living with less, by necessity or by choice.

Nell

No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.

Original Goal: 114. Current old lady goal: 106.

Hi everyone!! My name is Indu, and I'm pretty new on SP.. Something about me... Worked as a cook for several years. Loooove to travel, see the world, meet people, do extreem stuff, experience new things, learn, listen, observe, dance, longboard, surf, sing, cook, laugh, see the little things,... I love reggae, the beach, being outdoors, reading, dreaming, positive people...I don't like to worry too much, it's just not worth it :) Ow and I hate racism and cold toilet seats! So much for the short introduction :D I'm really looking forward to see what is going on in the team!

Greetings! I'm Rachel - 41 - awesome husband and 3 kids (ages 5 1/2, 4, 3). Been on SP since February. Started losing weight March 2010 - but got stuck and SP was recommended to me. Husband and I are also looking to get out from under debt stress. This team was in a spark email today. I really like it so far.

Hi my name is Boni,
I am not new to SP but found this team through another team member...Living life on a shoestring seems like a really interesting team.

I live in Central Kentucky on a farm with my husband and his mother lives with us. She is 87 and needs to be with family at this stage in her life.

I have been on a lifelong journey with my weight problem. I am 62 and I just want to be as healthy as I can be for my senior years.

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

Hi Everyone~
My name is Sandy. I am about to turn 51 and don't know how the number doesn't match how I feel... hm, and that varies. Sometimes I feel like I am still in my 30s and sometimes I feel like I am in my 80s... anyway: where to start.

I am married, but about to be divorced for the second time. Never thought I would ever be divorced once, let alone twice. My husband moved out 1 year ago today... I guess he isn't coming back. That's ok.

I am a Christian mom of 3, my son is 25 and my girls are 21 (yep, they are twins). The girls and my son-in-law live with me. And I am going to experience the joy of becoming a grandma for the first time in January! So excited!!!

I am a teacher's assistant in a KIDS program with the school district. I have been with the school district for 13 years, wow, and I love my job. I work with 3 to 6 year old children with Autism. It is a fun, exciting, rewarding, tiring, amazing job! I have been in the same class with the same teacher for 8 years. I also do some private tutoring with an 8 year old with autism, and I work part time at Lakeshore Learning. So, I am pretty busy.

I have been a member of sparkpeople for several years. I lost 45 pounds when I first joined. My weight has stayed about the same since then, fluctuating a little, but basically staying about the same. Now I am ready to lose the rest of the excess baggage. I know that sparkpeople works. And I know that one of the most important tools is being involved with a good sparkteam. So, here I am... ready to get started again. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you!
~Sandy

CHANGE IS GOOD!!!

200 lbs - new purse

emoticon Thought I'd better introduce myself, for those that don't know me.
I'm Vicki and I live in Florida.
I'm working towards making the healthiest choices I can when it comes to taking care of myself.
I want to make exercise a top priority as I have a couple of health issues that exercise would improve. Also it would definately give me more energy.
I am basically trying to keep all my nutritional numbers within a set goal I think will work for me. It's not strictly any one specific program. If I had to push it, I'd be more inclined to say it's a lower carb plan.
I'm working to lose about 100 lbs but have no set time to lose it in. I'd love to lose it over the next couple of years, but I tend to be a very slow loser. So I'll take it one pound at a time.

I'm new but at Level 4 already (over 500 points). Just joined Spark on Wednesday May 9, 2012. I am Canadian emoticon but moved to central Ohio sixteen years ago, when my seventeen year old son was just one. I'm on the Zone diet which is costing me way too much money so I joined this team for some frugal grocery shopping tips and help to cut my new food budget. Maybe I do need to spend more on food though. What better thing to do than help yourself reach your goals.

I love books emoticon and reading and am a member of the Spark Bookworms team. That's how I found out about Spark People, from the book which I picked up at Barnes and Noble when it was a bestseller.

"By stabilizing insulin levels, you will be able to access stored body fat as a virtually unlimited supply of energy throughout the day" Dr. Barry Sears "There are just five causes of all disease: poor diet, chronic stress, microbes, toxins and allergens ... And there are just a few "ingredients" needed to make a healthy human: real, whole, fresh food, nutrients(vitamins and minerals), light, water, air, sleep, movement, rhythm, love, connection, meaning and purpose" Dr Mark Hyman

I'm new to the messgae boards. I only started participating on the site yesterday. Looking forward to being able to use all these great resources and meet some great people!
Hubby and I just did a Dave Ramsey course and are focused on getting out of debt, so I'm getting healthy "on the cheap".

I just joined this team, have been a spark member (off & on) for a few years. I am married, working full time, but my DH was laid off 3 yrs ago as a direct result of the economy (he is a land surveyor). His unemployment ran out a year ago. Hoping to find some ideas & support here.

Hi! I'm Patty and I live in metro Detroit. I sell Avon and do temporary work through a lot of employment agencies while I'm looking for a full time job.

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.

Lost the weight, gained it back, so am starting afresh. I was encouraged to join a group or two. You are my first choice. :)

Good for you, Joan. I have to look at it one pound at a time. My middle sistr lost 60 pounds on Weight Watchers, and when she asked the doctor how she would do it, his reply was, "One pound at a time." One of the things I enjoy is a 3-2-1 cake. I mix a dry cake mix, any flavor, with a dry angel food cake mix. I keep the dry mix in a plastic container. You take 3 tablespoons of the mix, 2 tablespoons of water......mix in a small 8 oz bowl or ramekin, and microwave 1 minute. I like chocolate, so I put a tsp of chocolate chips in the bowl when I stir it up. The chocolate chips go to the bottom and form a chocolate syrup. It is delicious with a couple of spoons of light cool whip on top.

Hi, I'm Joan, formerly in federal law enforcement, hoping to get my pension in two years. 'Just quit a part-time job at a hospital (for numerous reasons) and have now avowed to make myself stick to a strict budget and change in life style. I've lived in Michigan my whole life, enjoy gardening, just trying to deal with (and correct) 50 pounds of excess baggage, and a pair of bad knees.

I'm looking at it as a fun challenge that I know I can do. Hoping to share and get some good ideas from my Shoestring peeps.

I am Sue Powell, a semi-retired school librarian in Chattanooga, TN. I grew up in San Antonio, TX and taught there 31 years....26 as a middle school math teacher. I sought a master's degree in library science and became a school librarian. I picked out Chattanooga when I retired because of my love of Southern gospel music. I truly enjoy living here, and this is now home. I moved to Chattanooga in 1997, and the 15 years have flown by.

I am in good health....I just needed to trim off 15 pounds or so. I joined the Y, but an ankle injury has sidelined me for a while. I get a brace for my ankle in a couple of weeks, and back to Zoomba I will go. That's pretty much it for me. I hope to enjoy this website and the "company" of the folks on here.
