    Ditto to all the names mentioned and for that matter most of the people posting in this thread who haven't already been named.

    One I'd add that I don't think I've seen mentioned is @ninerbuff

    Can I just say that I love this thread, and up to this point, it's pretty much my "favorite forum people Hall of Fame?"

    I also have learned a LOT from a few members who got banned. For truth speaking. Which pisses me off.

    there is a certain group that would disagree..but I won't go there….lol

    I said MY hall of fame! Not the MFP machine at large.

    I see lots of names of sensible deficit eating, heavy lifting, good humored folk on this thread so far. Which, you know, can run in short supply some days....

    LOL I was messing around …

    and I agree .. :)

    I love this! Pretty much everyone mentioned, and most of you that have participated, are my favorites. I basically stalk the forums to enjoy when one of you corrects some nonsense. And then gets "yelled at" by the poster. And then blows minds with your wisdom. Better than TV. I wish I had been in the forums earlier, your advice is invaluable.

    She has been so supportive! It's nice to have someone who is not going to let a health issue stop them from achieving their goals.

    In turn, I am learning lots from @rabbitjb

    This right here! I feel like whenever you post I should be taking notes. Same with mrm, usmcmp, mamapeach, kgeyser, and liftng4lis. I have learned so much from these forums!

    As far as my news feed goes, every time I see anything from @fatjon73, I have to smile. I swear, he keeps me coming back every day just to see his latest updates

    I'm going with @TXEXrunner! I've been on and off this site since 2011, and he was one of the first people to add me on my current 448 day streak. Always a positive influence on his MFPals!

    One of these things is not like the others...

    Great list and great additions from the gallery. The one common theme with all these names is a willingness to speak the honest truth. Achieving and maintaining weight/fitness goals is *kitten* hard and the people mentioned in this thread aren't afraid to correct any misconceptions to the contrary.

    I would also like to add @heybales . He was one of the OG's on top of most of the people mentioned already.

    I agree with the OP...I will add @ndj1979 just because I like his brand of no non-sense posting...and I have learned from all mentioned above as well...still learning...

    LOL, I think you are the only one…

    careful, you might get in trouble admitting that...

    I can genuinely say i like the non nonsense posting as i have learned a lot from it and tend to post that way.

    Agreed. I also like that we have the knowledgeable ones who seem to really study how the body works and can reference science and scientific studies but also those who may not be as science based but have good common sense and experience and have learned from both, plus can cut through the mumbo-jumbo and BS. I have learned from both types.

    I'm relatively new here but your posts and feedback have helped me a lot. :)

    So many people on here have lifted me up. Truly amazing.

    I have been lurking since I came back here in March and only just started getting brave enough to start posting.
    I enjoy reading everyone's posts, I find a lot even entertaining at times! I find myself laughing at some(in a good way). :) I also lurked here back in 2013, but never got up the nerve to post. I think that actually posting and reading will help keep me on track this time!

    Those are people I always look out for in posts! They know what they are talking about! :) There are more I'm sure. But those are the ones I can think of right now.

    What a great post, @rabbitjb !

    I think most of the people I would have mentioned have already been posted, so I am just going to give a huge thanks to all of the posters here in the forums that taught me about moderation, accurate logging, and that it's okay to push my boundaries when it comes to physical fitness. Most of their names have already been mentioned :)

    @rabbitjb is someone who I listen to. MrM I thought was a bullish ape when I first started using the forums. I soon realised he was a vast wealth of knowledge and I warmed to him and his churlish ways. He even loves Gelato. So yep he is up there with Rabbit for me.
