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.

    emoticon Thank you for your nice comment on my SparkPage. I can relate to your scale dilemma. I have continued to work hard, and I even went to the dr. to check why I might not be losing ANYTHING but there is no medical reason. It can be depressing at times, but we just have to keep making small strides towards our goals. I am not losing any weight at the moment, but I know I am getting in better shape and gaining muscle. So keep your chin up and so will I, and we will get there, step by step! Have a nice holiday and a wonderful week!

    emoticon for the comment! Glad you are having a good weekend! Hubby and I just got back from dinner with friends. He works out of town during the week so it is nice to spend time together. Didn't eat very well, but sometimes you just have to relax and enjoy the moment. There's always tomorrow for putting your nose to the grindstone haha Sending happy thoughts your way.

    emoticon KAILYNSTAR for adding me as a friend!

    Congratulations on your efforts yesterday, many 'little' successes make a huge one eventually.

    I'm trying to love my exercise DVD - but it isn't working so far. :)

    Love Cleo x
