    Oh, someone not around anymore who I haven't seen mentioned and learned a lot from is @neandermagnon.

    +1
    +2 Adding @Nony_Mouse. Between those two, I learned plenty about what a Paleo diet is.

    I will also say that @Nony_Mouse is great for debunking the paleo folks and actually explaining what paleo really is.

    @mccindy72 is another helpful user

    I was looking for this thread earlier, I am glad it is back so I too can pay homage to those who have helped along the way...

    As someone who originally just lurked and learned, many of the people who helped me out have already been named but a couple may not have been or need extra props... some of these people don't venture into the forums anymore so not sure if they will see the props or not.

    Also @MamaPeach30 @Sarauk2sf @rabbitjb @usmcmp I have been admiring you ladies from afar for quite a while...

    And not to exclude the guys: @trogalicious that beard is magnificent and so is your gif... @ndj1979 you never back down from a fight... @tincanonastring I love the Peeps cleanse


    I'm just going to quote this because these folks have become some of my MFP heroes. :)

    If not for many of you, I might have given up or would at least be spinning my wheels... and maybe hating life because I thought I had to give up pizza and cheese.

    I am more of a lurker because I feel like there are so many more people more knowledgable than me (everyone who's been listed on this thread) who can answer questions. I have learned a lot so thank you all for your awesomeness.

    funny story …when I first signed into MFP I never ventured into the forums or I would lurk and then I started posting a little and this was still in my dumb days of six small meals or starvation mode, sugar is bad, bla bla ..so I remember posting that someone should eat six small meals a day because starvation mode and I got reemed out so bad lol …

    but instead of getting all butthurt it made me start doing my own research and I found out that most of the stuff that I thought was true was bunch of pseudo/bro science….

    Just make sure they arent mods. Apparently, being friends with mods is terrible.

    Also, one of the most inspirational stories and a person i admire is @CyberEd312

    Yep my story too.

    My first post was questioning the accuracy of those body fat scales.

    Who knew that was the beginning of what would totally reshape my entire outlook on weight loss and even more so my overall health and fitness.
