One of the BEST steps I took was joining SparkTeams that connected me with like-minded people. I believe this is one of the features of SparkPeople that make others' successful. I tried another tracking site but it didn't have some KEY ingredients that SP offers: community, motivational incentives and goal setting. PLEASE join some like-minded teams for the BEST support available! You will see your motivation increase and your success accelerate! Under COMMUNITY search the SparkTeams.

I was living in total terror of anything financial. By the end of June 2009 I had generated thousands of dollars in overdraft fees and lost thousands of dollars in expired unfiled medical insurance claims. And I had accumulated $40,000 in debt.
In desperation I joined Debtors Anonymous in July '09. Since then I have neither incurred any overdraft fees nor have I missed any insurance claims. Working DA's 12-Step program I have learned how to live within my means one day-at-a-time.
