    Before I came to MFP I had been losing weight for a while. I was down about 50lb, but I seemed to have hit a wall. I just couldn't understand why I was eating the same as I was when is was losing weight, AND exercising, but weight loss had come to a halt. I realized I needed to actually start tracking my food intake better, instead of just eyeballing it, or assuming I'm eating the right amount.
    So, I searched for an app on my phone where I could log my food intake, and I found MFP! "Plateau" no more. I am not at my end goal weight yet, but it is a success for me just to be able to say I have logged my food intake consistently over the last year. Here are a few things I have accomplished in that year.

    -Lost 32.4 pounds
    -Lost 24 inches from my thighs, hips, waist, bust and upper arms
    -As of Sunday I ran 4.5 miles straight, and a year ago I didn't run at all.
    -Went from a size 14 to a size 10

    I haven't reached my end goal, but I'm definitely closer. I am so grateful to have found this app, and then to find these forums where I have learned so much from so many of you. Thank you! I can't wait to see what I accomplish in the next 365 days :)

    Mega Man is awesome!

    I must admit, I'm kinda digging that picture of my back. Should've taken a back before photo! Dang.
