emoticon I'm new to the team, but not to Sparkpeople!

My name is Valerie. I first joined Spark when I was living in Germany... in 2008 when I was 40 and had 10 kilos to lose... I've been on and off Sparkpeople all these years, with great successes during my first 5 years. I have a Hashimoto condition (thyroid), and I've gained a lot of weight the last couple of years,

Fast forward to now, I am now back to France, and lives close to the Swiss border. I'll be 50 next September... and I now have 20 kilos to lose, and a house to declutter.


I need support and challenge! :)

Just wanted to introduce myself - have always struggled with keeping my home clean - really want to try and get in a routine - and thought joining this team would help - although I have joined two others - they all looked so good I couldn't choose between them!...
Looking forward to getting to know you all

My name is Jan . Often called 2B by those who know me. I have been on Sparks for over 6 years and love it. See so many people on this team I know and I love active teams.
I retired nearly a year and a half ago, and in that time have really purged things we no longer need or became clutter! It is such a good feeling to take one room at a time, and then the next to make life more simple.

Looking forward to getting to know some people here. emoticon

Hello, I am new to this team, but not to spark. I was on here about 4 yrs. ago. I did lose weight but somehow went off, and did not do well. Now, I am back to try again. Hopefully this time, I will stay focused and keep myself motivated, long enough to lose weight and change my bad eating habits into better ones and live a happy lifestyle, once again. Good Luck to Everyone, here. emoticon

Hey all! It's been a good 9 months since I've been active here, life got busy and I was working a new job. I'm home now, and looking forward to getting my home organized before my twins come in a couple of months! I can't do a whole lot at one time anymore, I'm getting big and everything feels awkward to do, so the swish and shine and other 10 minute techniques are just what I need to get back into good habits for a tidy home! There are so many new people here since I last checked in, I'm excited to get to know some of you!

Hi, I'm Sue. I work full time and love FlyLady. I've been a Flylady member 10 or so years and have listened to all her radio shows and now I watch her Facebook videos. I am still stuck and being horrible to myself over it. I have gotten as far as making my bed every day and doing Swish and Swipe. I hope to stop stressing and depressing myself about time limitations and get my home cleaner, and be kinder to myself.

Hi everybody

I found FlyLady ten years ago and she became my godess. I shined my sink and started to use swish-and-swipe my bathroom, 10-minutes declutter and other texhniqies that really made me happy every day. Then I moved and moved again and along that road I stopped using FLy Lady, I still do the ten-minutes declutter and I do shine my sink now and then but i wish to get back on a more dedicated Fly lady Road.

I am a 65 years old, semi-retired, swedish lady who live by the lake Vnern with my 18-year old daughter and doggy.

Hello! I used to follow the FLY Lady, and I really want to get back to it. Since January 1st, I've cleaned up my eating. Now, I want to focus on my house. I shined my sink last night. It was so nice to wake up to a clean sink this morning! I look forward to getting to know the folks on this team.

Hi all! I used to be a clean freak but now lack the energy and motivation. I love to organize my life and my 'stuff' and value a clean, organized house. I'm looking forward to the cleaning tips and any other healthy advice members share.
I live on Maryland's Eastern Shore, which is quite rural compared to the metropolitan area in the middle of the state. Even though I grew up just outside of Washington D.C. I'm much happier here. I like to walk, dance, and try out different strength training exercises. I also like reading and watching TV (the history channel, the animal planet channel, TNT, old movies and more). I have a rich life and want to remain healthy enough to enjoy it all. emoticon

emoticon Greetings, my name is Marcy (mnnsaide)

I'm from South Texas, retired music teacher (now giving lessons out of my little living room), nature lover (love taking pictures!).

I am a clean freak, but am NEVER done!!!! I have 14 cats and 3 parrots!!!! These are my kids that never grow up! I probably get most of my steps from cleaning!!! lol

I have been seeing the team picture for sometime and I just went thru the site and it seems like a team I would be interested in for some motivation and ideas.

I have been trying really hard these past few weeks to walk / bird walk to loose this terrible weight. Needing a big push and household ideas as I've seen in some of the challenges.

I just realized I hadn't introduced myself to the Team. My name is Carolyn. I choose joy daily, sometimes moment by moment. I blog daily and attempt to visit Spark Friends regularly. I LOVE inspirational quotes. I'm not sure when my Sparkversary is because I have come and gone several times. My marriage anniversary is September 23rd and my birthday is November 8th. I'm a happily retired grandmother and am blessed to live with my best friend.

Joy is a Choice. Choose joy moment by moment.

When all else fails, persistence prevails.

Injoy:) Carolyn

Hi I'm Doris. I live in NE Ohio. I love Sparkpeople and recommend to friends though they usually only last a short time. I decided to join this team to help me get organized with my cleaning. I do basics but life has gotten in the way (kids and then my parents(dementia). Now I need to do better. I am still working on my weight but I am making progress there. Next my house. This team looks supportive. Thanks for having me. I will try to be supportive too.

Hi I am Connie From FL. Been with SP for 7 years and have lost 102 pounds with SP ! Just recently decided to join a few teams. Hope I can participate often, but sometimes I get busy, as you all know how life can get. But, at least I can give the team some points everyday!!!
I like the idea of this team, since I need to get to doing more cleaning. I have had health issues the last couple years and need to catch up on decluttering especially. Have a good weekend!

AHHHHHH!!!!!! I've been on Spark People for about 10 years, and never - until now - did I know there was a FlyLady team! I've been FLYing (more like fluttering, crashing, and fluttering again) for even longer than that.

I'll get out my FlyLady feather duster, and my copy of Body Clutter, and get to work...LOL I wear a good number of hats as a fulltime payroll SHE, wife, mother, grandmother, part time helper for my aging mum, support for my adult daughter with mental health issues, owner of six pets, master gardener, and animal rescue volunteer. Oh...and student! That doesn't even include my crafting, which I do to "relax" in my "spare time" emoticon

Hi, I'm Carol. I've been part of Spark People for years on and off but never had the nerve to get involved in teams and challenges. I am turning 55 in a couple of months and think it's time for a new approach...start being mindful (and truthful) about what I eat..... and drink! Get out in the fresh air and get involved with people. Anxiety and low mood have ruled my life......so far maybe? emoticon

Hi, I'm Flo. I have been off and on with FlyLady and SparkPeople for many years. I started back with FlyLady a few months ago (I'm a Payroll SHE). I am so happy to be in this group. Thank you so much HOMEBODY4EVER for the invite! I look forward to interacting with everyone.

Hi everyone, I am Charlene and looking forward to a more organized clean home. I am 78 years old wife of a Vietnam Vet, mother of seven, grandmother of 30 and great grandmother of 19 yet to master organization.

I truly have a desire to get and keep my home clean and organized. Now that the Lord is helping me, and has helped me, master my emotions and get control of my eating habits, I am still full of excess in other areas of my life, that keeps me from accomplishing all I want to accomplish. I have difficulty stopping one project in order to work on another . I need to learn moderation in all things.

It is very difficult with a husband who is forever tugging on my emotions because of his severe depression and PTDS and is a hoarder and yet I know it could be worse. I need to not allow the opposition around me to effect my emotional state so much so that I want to hide now in my projects instead of food.

I must learn to let go and let God take care of others and just take care of what I can take care of with His help. All I can do is clean and organize my little corner of the universe and let God have my husband's space.

hi, amihiungry!!! Welcome to the group. I, too, am a caregiver of my partner and also help her daughter out of things she can't manage. My advise to you---just take it slow, a step at a time--and if you have to skip posting or whatever, it is OK. It took me a while to get used to the system here at Spark and I'm glad I did, but I still have times when I just have to skip all but the essentials for a day or two.

AMIHUNGRY, Welcome! It can be hard work taking care of someone else. Don't worry so much about posting every thing. Just try to read and learn as much as you can to help yourself in this journey when you can. Take care of yourself, and little by little things will get better.

Janette, Leader of the Wii Fit Plus Team.

Hi! I've been on SP for about 2 weeks. It has been a lot to follow. Making entries to the trackers was taking quite a bit of time, but finally, it is becoming more streamlined and less time-consuming. A lot of my time is spent in caretaking tasks for both my mother and my husband who shortly after he was on kidney dialysis suffered a stroke which has left him with severe expressive aphasia and apraxia. It took over two years, but using a lot of the Flylady methods I was able to get my home of 33 years clutter free and sold, and a new home built close to where two of my sons live that accommodates our new reality. It was wonderful to receive the invite to this group. I like the combination of keeping my home in order while I work on getting me in order. emoticon . Look forward to getting to know you all over time

Thank you for the invite, not only am I cleaning my house, but I am also cleaning my mind :) have been taking care of our mom , she passed 2 years ago and then continued to take care of our dad ( Lewy body dementia ) he passed 7 months ago. I have no regrets but have put myself on the back burner, just recently realized my house has been missing me along with my health and family, so here I am :)
