What's the story behind your profile name?



Recommended Posts

I find a lot of names on here interesting and I'm sure there are good stories behind how everyone chose them. Anyone like to share? For me, Kindle is my horse's name and she was the "straw that broke the camel's back" in my decision to have VSG. I feel bad for her, having to lug my fat ass around the mountains and would love to be able to hop on her without having to find a rock or log to climb up on. (there's a dozen other reasons behind my decision, but my profile name is my tribute to her and how much more fun we will have next summer!)

Went to Cozumel with my hubbie and another couple in 2000. Don, my friend, started calling me Seagirl, because I'm like a fish, they would always find me in or near the Water. He still calls me Seagirl..

Mine goes back to high school, small town USA, rednecks, we had CB's in our trucks. My "handle" was Goldilox, I have always had long, pretty blonde hair. Brings back great memories and fun times. And the last decent nickname I've had in a long time. :) :)

What a fun topic.

Now how to explain my profile name ribearty. My husband shortened everyone's name in our family to the first syllable of their name and added bear behind it. My first name is Rita so I was ribear. At the time we were buying ty beanie babies which explains the ty.

I originally had joined dailystrength a few years ago with this handle. My bf was in active addiction to alcohol/cocaine/ prescription pills and i made it b/c even though his family had given up on him, hope still lived within me that he would come through it. Today he is 20 months sober after 30 years of active addiciton.

Now, hopeliveshere, signifies my new start, i have hope that i will overcome obesity.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.
