Life holds many unknowns...It is my prayer that when life's storms come my way...that I may learn to DANCE IN THE RAIN!!!

I want to challenge myself to live in the moment...we can't speak for tomorrow, but at least we have TODAY!

The things I like to do to manage stress is...
biking the trails, riding my stairstepper to 80's , exercise videos, playing with my American Eskimo & Scottish Terrier, quiet evenings watching movies with my dso, Saturday lunhes with my mom at the Tea Room, quilting, hot relaxation baths in my jetted tub with guided imagery by BelleRuth Napersteck, and inspirational devotionals that keep me inspired with hope. God made me. That makes me special. I have to remember that.

Everyday is a special part of the journey...

    Phyllis-your new pic is terrific! You look great!

    Congrats on the 12 lbs-you said just waht I am needing to hear-at the moment. Counting fat-carbs and protein...what are your parameters?

    I have a friend here that lost 100 lbs in 9 months-doing this and strength - cardio 3 X a week. She is still a size 9-3 years later...and in her mid fifties-no no excuses.

    ps-love he crazy hazy beautiful background you have here!

    Hey Girl, I'm so glad that you are back! I have been on and off for a while too, so much going on with the kids, both with the foster ones and with my own two. My son is going nuts about buying a car. He is working and saving his money but he also got into some trouble and he has to do some community services, and of course Mom has to look into those too... Goodness! It's always something! But otherwise doing good, I'm on my second week of BFL, and feeling strong and excited. How is everything with you? Getting back on track, I hope! I'm here if you need anything at all!
