Hi there. My name is Phyllis.
I am a stay at home Mom of four children. The oldest is 19 the youngest is 14.
I have been married for 24 years to a supportive man that knows when something is up when he walks in the door after work. (It's crazy that he can do that).
I have major heel spurs that bother me when I walk too much and when I get up in the morning, my right ankle is very stiff and sore until I get it warmed up for the day.
I am not into spas, getting my nails done, let alone getting into a swimming suit. I feel very intimadated just thinking of doing things like that.
I would rather go for a walk in the country or hike and explore. How about goofing off and just having fun and not worry what the other people are thinking. Believe it or not, they are watching you and chuckling at some of the things that you say or do. Those that get annoyed, walk away.
I am the kind of person that would say, "Come on in! Pull up the floor and make yourself at home!"
I originally came here to lose weight, found out that this site is more than that. Now I am here to become more myself and not live under the pressure of other people's expectations. Here, I am learning confidence, pride and that it's okay to say "No."
"What? You're not here to lose weight?!"
Yes I am here to lose weight, yet I am healing as well in this journey.

    Hi, Phyllis! Thanks for welcoming me back! I was definitely off SP too long, and my weight reached an all time high. Right now my plan is to just eat healthy foods. Lots of fruits and veggies and cut out the JUNK. How have you been?

    Brrrrrrrrrr! You ARE living in a colder climate than even the freezer part of my refrigerator!!!!! Your post on my recent blog made me SO glad that the weather here is just cool-ish compared to yours... (In fact, today was sunshiny and 78-80 degrees, after our few days of freezing- We ARE back to shorts and flip-flops!)

    As long as you Canadians keep sending Blue Northers down this way, we will be alternating frost and swimsuits..... the golfers are certainly in Hog Heaven since they can play regardless of the temperatures (snow is NEVER, well, almost Never-once every 10 years-, in the forecast)

    Stay warm, and Keep Sparking!
