I am fat and out of shape and depressed and hate my life. I came back to SP to try and change all this again. HELP!!!!!!!



I did do something good for myself not to sound gross but underwear is the only thing that is true to size on my body I was down to a size 7 I almost bought new ones today but then said NO I will get back into the 7"s

I sure thank everyone who has sent me comments I am not getting e-mails and just seen today I had 4 pages of comments I think I got everyone if I did not sorry and love ya all.


Since I started off all negative with my first statement I would like to tell you all that I have lost 68lbs. I just have 50 more to go and having a heck of a time doin it. This POSSE RIDES For YOU

Greetings this is an awesome part of DwD... we are all challenged by life's hurdles...and even life's blessings... so here we gather to offer support and to be creative in our commanility of depression... If you are a member of DwD, then you and/or a family member deals with various degrees of mental health...
+++++++++
GREETINGS... this posse evolved out of a creative interchange and interaction of several members. One aspect of the POSSE is my own personal image of a group of individuals who would ride to my rescue should the 'monsters' of clinical depression/mental health issues become severe...

or perhaps a posse would simply provide me affirmation of my purpose and reason for being in this life/world

or a posse to go 'talk' to the negative people who get in my way... if ya know what I mean...

Or a group of people who would go hottie hunting with me... or on a road trip... hehehehe

or the image of a group of people who would simply hold me with loving hugs to remind me simply that life is really worth living in spite of the joys and challenges....

So the POSSE is simply a coping skill of a group of people/friends who share, care and smile....

So we ride out.... to share... we usually visit sparkpages.. and anyone, everyone is mostest welcome!!! many blessings....
+++++++++
One day a member discussed the diagnosis of Lyme's disease with the topic "lyme in de coconut" .... one thing lead to another so that another member decided that we should form a POSSE to out after the monster-dragon of depression and/or another person that needed to be gathered.... so here tis the OATH OF THE POSSE... we are here to gallup, crawl, fly, leap to the rescue or encouragement of any and all DwD members...


THE OATH OF THE POSSE TO DwD TEAM MEMBERS

1. When you are sad -- We will jump on the person who made you sad like a spider monkey jacked up on Mountain Dew...or Limes & Coconuts.

2. When you are blue -- We will try to dislodge whatever is choking you. Or jump the person who made you blue, like the jacked up Spider Monkey...

3. When you smile -- We will know you are plotting something that we must be involved in. Like the jacked up Spider Monkey we are gonna be with you.

4. When you're scared -- we will high tail it out of here and come to your rescue....

5. When you are worried -- We will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining, ya big lovable baby!!!!

6. When you are confused -- We will use little words & lots of limes & coconuts...

7. When you are sick --We will console you until your better with stories and antics of our rides and adventures...

8. When you fall -- We'll help you to laugh so we all can laugh our butts off, then pick you up and dust you off.

9. When you are lonely -- We will be there to offer cheer and companionship until you say Spider Monkey.

10. When you are having trouble like/loving yourself -- We will be there to point out your qualities we see and make you aware of what we love about you.

To be a Posse Rider, this is our oath...I pledge it to the end. 'Why?' you may ask -- because you are OUR FRIENDS!

Friendship is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it,but only you can feel the true warmth.

MORE ON THE LYME IN THE COCONUT /BIRTH OF THE POSSE......

OK, here is the rest of the story...
-around the 4th of July weekend, PRYZYM started a thread called DE LYME IN DE COCONUT...
-she revealed that in addition to all of her life's experiences she had Lyme's disease (and inferring she was the cocoNUT)

-many messages of sympathy and empathy were shared BUT
-so being festive and clever and totally creative members that we are

-we started playing with words like Lyme became limes and then there were the coconuts (all of us)
-and PRYZYM said that some doctor looked like George Clooney but she really liked Johnny Depp

-So Johnny Depp was remembered as pirate Jack Sparrow -then Jack Sparrow, limes, coconuts landed on some beach

-then someone mentioned that some boyfirend and/or girlfriend was causing problems in addition to the original concern about Lyme disease

-then WOWEETOO aka Lady-in-Waiting... suggested a posse needed to lasso the dude/dudette that was causing problems for any and all DwD members

-now the posse idea came from another thread started about a bride and groom ... where the groom did something funny but sweet... and we decided that he needed a posse of DwD members to help educate him about how to be a little more romantic

-so the posse idea has grown to our desire to comfort, support, defend all DwD members....

-and we have various means of riding---giraffes, elefants, monkey (Jack Sparrow's monkey) turtles, horses provided by MR2HORSES...

So we have this wonderful posse that arms themselves with limes, coconuts, lime jello etc etc etc., and then Jack Sparrow has been known to enter the Royal Castle, savaging me while I hold him hostage... I mean he holds me hostage.....

So this summer we have formed the posse to provide unconditional love etc... MR2HORSES worked with Willie Shakespeare to write the OATH OF THE DwD POSSE... and we have the monks recopying it so that we can repost it as needed....

BUT it all started when PRYZYM revealed her LYME IN THE COCONUT story.... Which you can search the archives for the thread and enjoy it for yourself.
