    Our love story Back in 2002 I had to move to PR, but that’s a story for some other time; before Facebook there was this wonderful site called Face-pic.com. To which you would put your picture and get rated by others and you could do the same. Well on day in the fall of 2004 I received a random message from my beautiful better half. Stating she wanted to know more about me and so on and so forth. (Found out years later her friend sent the first message because I looked like what Jessica was always looking for) anyways we exchanged phone numbers but I was too chicken shit to make the first call. I had just gotten divorced 2 years earlier from a toxic marriage and had just finished a long distance relationship with my high school crush which contacted me after the divorce. Anyways one night I received a call from her and we set a date to go out to dinner. Found out also years later she called me because she had just watched The Ring 2 and was scared driving home at night by herself. Anyways we set a date to go to eat to chili’s. I was a nervous wreck but when I saw her walk up to me she looked so stunning I was in shock. I scrambled some words which I can’t remember right now and we went to eat at Chillis. We then had a very long conversation at the restaurant I almost didn’t eat because I couldn’t stop staring at her. We ate, and we went to a movie. We watched Bridget Jones Diary 2. It sucked. I did the stupid thing of trying to put my arm around her. That last shortly. Anyways we ended the first date with just a kiss in the check and me walking her to her car. Second date My grandma went very ill and was in the hospital. I called her to cancel she did the most amazing thing and came to see me at the hospital and we had subway. She brought the aforementioned friend with her. We are I met the friend and we had a good evening. When she was leaving I opened the door for her and also her friend. When she was about to drive off and say good by I leaned in to give her a kiss on the cheek but I said fuck it go for it and gave her a soft kiss on her lips. She kissed me back soft pop kiss. Her friend squeaked and they left. I few dates later I cooked for her my specialty, lasagna, and I introduced her to my best friend and his wife. We had a great night she stayed over and that was it. What finally sealed the deal on our second month we came to Miami on vacation, my grandma was still in the hospital but I needed a break. So we left came here and after a few days my uncle was calling me asking me to go back to which I Declined many times. Well it all ended bad he kicked me out of my apartment that I had with my grandma(I took care of her she took care of me type of deal and he paid for everything). Well I had to scramble to figure my next step no home no job no school(college, he provided for everything) so my dad and my stepmom helped me find a job and told me to move in with them in Miami. I told her of this and I told her that due to the short time of our relationship I would understand if she wanted to stay in Puerto Rico when I moved to Miami. She looked me straight in the eye and said “I just found you and will not loose you”. She did the most incredible thing she left her job, family, car, everything in PR and moved here with me. That was it for me. On Nov 12, 2005 we got married. On July 5th, 2006 we had our princess Alyson, and on July 26th, 2010 we had our miracle baby Nicholas. We have been together for 13 years and we couldn’t be happier. We have gone through hell and back and she has always stuck by my side. We area two halves that make a whole. You might find it funny but we read each other’s thoughts constantly, we think exactly alike sometimes, she has and always will be my happily ever after.

    Pt. 2 Now, while I had little life outside reading, the life I did have I had made a right mess of. Or, life had made a right mess of me. Like many who found a home at PI, I was looking for an escape from reality. Jamie was no different; he was looking to get away from a mentally and emotionally abusive wife. My first post on PI was, appropriately, in the welcome forum. Jamie was the first to greet me (and cart my soul off to SoulEx). I would find out later that he had been immediately drawn to my name: 'Songmistress'. The first thing that attracted me to Jamie was his sense of humour. Exquisite and gloriously British. He couldn't have had me more in stiches if he'd been the entire cast of Monty Python, Blackadder and Red Dwarf. He made me laugh and, my god, how I needed to laugh. Later, I went on to create a thread for poetry. Not having an outlet for my music, I resorted to poetry. Some of it was even decent (most of it was shite - I'm a better songwriter than I am a poet). I invited others to share poems of their own. What began as 'The Songmistress's Poetic Expressions' evolved into 'The Live Poets' Society'. Jamie was among the little troup of poets who shared verse, and he was my favourite of the group. One, because he had a grasp of what made good poetry (a lot of people didn't). Two, the way he wrote, the words he used, resonated with me. He wrote dark, ugly things, but in such a beautiful way. He wrote with passion and imagination and more than a little romance. But, it wasn't soppy. It wasn't predictable. Basically, it was worth the reading. After a little while, he and I began to chat outside of the board, on IM. We talked about collaborating on some poems. Turned out that he liked mine as much as I liked his. We both figured that since we both wrote in styles and themes that, while not identical, complemented each other, together we might come up with something really good. And, we did. He'd send me some lines and stanzas. I send him some. We'd write back and forth like that. We'd get a piece finished, then one or the other of us would post it on PI. After we had posted one of these collabs, I remarked (aloud...as in, on the board) that we were 'Two Pens, One Heart'. Before I knew it I had fallen. Shit and double shit! ----------------------------------------------------- to be continued....again....

    Two years ago I was fat. 5 foot 2 and 190 pounds fat. I hit my weight goal of 125 last week. I haven't hit that weight again since, I'm still bouncing between that and 128, but eventually I'll figure out this maintaining business. I didn't do any special diets or anything. I mainly just cut the amount of calories I was eating until I matched actual serving sizes on the food. I also cut out soda, eating out a lot, and easy to make meals. (aka frozen foods). I feel so much better after, and the amount of energy I have seems insane to me. I guess I just felt like bragging a little.

    It's a forum of many emotions. Today. I put too much responsibility on myself. As a general rule. But today was a big example of that. I'm trying to blame myself for everything that's going sideways in my life, and it's bullshit. I absolutely have responsibility, but it's not a one-way street and I need to remember that.

    So thanks to your inspiration and support, I am trying once again to fix myself. My fat mess of a body and my shitty relationship with food and exercise. This time I am trying low carb. I have dialled in 30/40/30 macros, but today I am way off 11/45/44 and stupidly under on calories - I am not even willing to admit how few calories I had according to MFP.... I just hope the omelette I had for breakfast was actually more than the one I chose in the damn app. I just don't know what else to eat. But I managed to keep the carbs low lmao. Question: Can you suggest protein snacks... aside from boiled eggs which get boring fast. Sorry rambling but today is day 1, again. Starting weight is 180lbs. First target is under 170lbs by Christmas. Should be easy right?

    Beautiful furbabies everyone So I'll tell you a little story about my 16 year old bassett/border collie Dale... one day a beautiful young pitbull lab mix named Nala came into his life and he discovered (in the minute that he was alone with her before she got fixed) that he was indeed not gay and that if you hump things that aren't boy dogs or cats he could be a dad! And then there were puppies... And my kids swore they'd take care of them, so we kept a few... which they really don't but I love the little bastards lol. And then my daughter got a job at the humane society and this dog wouldn't eat unless she was there so now we have 6 dogs...

    Lovely story @Moonhawk While Wolf and I have a love story we are very proud of, it involves the dissolution of two marriages one of which included children. Therefore I don't like to narrate it in this way,,. because to do so involved glossing of some agonising things all for the sake of the 'and they all lived happily ever after' conclusion. Of course the marriages were likely to end anyway... and I do believe we were meant to be together.. But yeah, most people here know our story - and like many real life love stories, it's not always a fairy tale. Ok so there is a wolf in this story, so it is pretty fairy taley... but you know what I mean. We broke some eggs while making our omelette. Mix those metaphors ffs. You will get there @Tika just keep writing your story. Even though some chapters may be written in blood and tears.

    It’s so nice to share positive things, as well as being able to share the bad stuff to alleviate some of the weight. I want to share my thoughts on what it meant to me, coming back here. I chose to blog about it on my personal life blog, which I put up in the Mental Health area. It’s about my journey through life (not just my mental health) and so I put positive stuff on there like creative things I like to do, or experiences I have and want to think about and share. A major positive recently was coming back here so I explored why a little. I’m sure many can echo my thoughts. https://forthineownselfcreate.wordpress.com/2017/09/27/finding-a-home/

    That is to say...hey @Songmistress...? (I can't "@" you in a title. More's the pity.) This quote, from your love story? This made my day better. So fucking true. I just wanted to say thank you for thinking and writing it. It's actually really important. I mean it can be such shit to live through, but it's still important. So. Thank you. (Also, OBVIOUSLY, for the love story. It's one of my favourites, too. I always feel so honoured and privileged to have watched it play out. )

    Almonds are a favourite of mine. I usually bring a little container of almonds and raisins to work for a coffee break snack. And I make granola (I like to control sugar intake), so I make sure that is predominantly nuts and oats. And yogurt (nothing fancy, I'm into plain - always with berries/fruit and granola, though). (Note: I had to Google a protein comparison between yogurt and cottage cheese - they're so similar it's not worth noting, BUT the cottage cheese is way higher in sodium. So there's that.) Oh. And nut butters, yes! But natural (read: JUST nut, and maybe oil, in the ingredients. Not the icing sugar filled PB substances). Beyond that, Ima have to research also. And I will, because this is good for me. I'm starting on Day One tomorrow - because I like Mondays and I'm just not going to be able to get my head in the game with this paper looming. I MUST get back to the gym. It's been a goddamn month. Blech. Happy challenging, @hirondelle! Maybe we'll keep each other motivated?

    So we are back! Yayness to the max! I started to think how long it has been and wow it's been ages. I remember when 1.0 I was the only one still on it trying to revive it and the wolf and goddes came back and made 2.0 and we came back so strong for so long. It was my escape room.Then Facebook happened and people didn't find forums as much fun anymore, life happened I had two kids and a demanding retail management job and the rest is history. But we are back and that makes me happy! Thank you @Timberwolf and @hirondelle for making this place again. Love you guys!

    *hugs @foxhard* I have missed youbso much and if I wasn't sat in my car waiting to tale my little boy to school I would be crying my eyes out. Thank you so much for your words, you have always been and will always be a great friend! One of my main triggers this year has been loneliness. I have my family and work but I do not have friends, friends that I feel like I can turn to and open up to. But now my home is back, I have my friends back and as soon as @hirondelletold me this was back I jumped at the chance to finally come back when I have missed it so much more than in could ever put into words. So thank you my family, my true friends you all mean the world to me x x
