Hi I have just joined this team, I spotted it whilst looking at other teams and thought it suited me. I am trying to live a more frugal life and am desperate to simplify my life as I often feel overwhelmed by all the 'stuff' going on around me!!

Looking forward to getting involved in the team :-)

Hi everyone...

One of my goals for 2015 is to dramaticly minimise and simplify my way of living. I need to shed a lot of baggage as well as the lbs.

Hope to get speaking to a few of you over the coming weeks, months and years.

How did I miss this team? In 2013 I gave up most of my Worldly possessions to have the greatest adventure of a lifetime. I am still living that adventure. Not having stuff is really liberating and it feels as though I have been imprisoned all my life. I try to live with just enough. Enough friends, enough food, enough love to keep me happy.

Hi,
Frugal is one of my middle names (the other is Green) and I have been a Sparker for a couple of years now. I slipped up a bit last year and now have a couple of extra pounds (about 15) that I will be very happy to give away to anyone that wants them !
I work too hard and am fortunate enough to be able work from home in the same room/office as my husband (we work for different companies) We love the fact that we are together 24/7 but we both know that we need to slow down and enjoy life outside of work. Getting up and moving around is difficult when working from home (as is going home).
We are on the move right now, down-sizing from a 2400 sq ft house in MT to a 2 bed apt in San Antonio - this should be the key to a better lifestyle with walking, hiking, biking and all the other things that we love to do. This move is going to be a stepping stone to retirement in a couple of years when we want to head out to Belize, Panama or Ecuador in search of an even healthier lifestyle that we will be able to afford, along with the cheaper cost of living and the much cheaper cost of health care.
Looking forward to getting to know you all and sharing in the hints and joys and sorrows.

I am not a new member but have been inactive for quite a while. I am back and hope to connect once a day with spark people. I am 60 yr old retired teacher who has 8 - 10 pounds to lose. I am active with my community - volunteer work, and some community theater. I have taken up hunting since retirement and have found that exciting.

Right now I need to clean out the sewing room, pay attention to what I shove into my mouth, and learn the rest of my lines for the play!!

Thanks for the encouragement!

I can do it!!

Hi, just joined the team. I am glad to have found ya'll (yes, I'm from the south!) I have lost 50 pounds a couple of years ago and found this site very helpful. I have recently gained 20 pounds back after the death of my Mom in July. Looking forward to getting back to my goal weight (again) I went shopping yesterday to restock pantry with healthy food choices and about had a stroke! I am only working part time now, live alone and have to cut corners wherever I can find while looking for another full time job. cooking for one is a huge challenge for me, but have managed to stay on my plan since starting back right after x mas. gained a bit at first, due to exercise, but finally lost 3 pounds last week. I don't expect drops like that to continue each week, but looking forward to an active group to help me stay motivated! so HI YA'LL!!!

I'm new to the group and to Spark people. I'm a stay at home mom and retired veteran. I'm trying to cut back on our expenses. We enclosed our sunroom this last year to make an extra bedroom and family room because we were desperate for extra space. We had to put it on our credit cards, so we now have to pay that off, so looking for ways to save money and trim our budget even more.

Change your mind, change your world!

I always try it be frugal in some of the things that I buy and I love simple living so just checking in to this team. It looks very active, and I love to meet new friends. We use to live on a small farm and I never had to purchase very much from the store, but we had a very large garden as well as many cows, pigs and chickens, etc. We now live in the the outskirts of Sacramento, but sure miss all the convenience of that life style. I love Spark people and have been here several years, so I'm checking out some of the other Spark teams. I try to do all my daily exercise and to keep active and healthy. I will be turning the big 75 years old on this Thursday, so I wan't to continue trying to be healthy daily.

I told my girls Goodnight one night, and all but one was gone to heaven, by the next morning !
We never stop missing them, even though it has been 41 years this year.

I've come back to SP after a long break and 10 pounds heavier than when I left. So I'm looking to start this new year off on a positive note for myself- establishing some healthier habits, making time for myself and embracing the simpler things in life emoticon

Hello all!

I've had good success with Spark in the past and I'm looking forward to having good success with Spark again!

My husband and I are relocating for my job at the end of the month and will selling all of our items and starting over with a more simple lifestyle in mind. I'm very excited to have come across this group at such a perfect time!

Happy New Year to all and well wishes emoticon
