    What? This isn't a magic website? I thought if I just logged in everyday that I would lose weight!

    That's it. I'm done. I'm leaving.

    I'm leaving.

    I'm gone.

    I want someone to respond with "DON'T GO!".

    You're wrong! Just making an account here automatically means the weight will fall off. Just like watching a Jillian Michaels dvd, or hanging your clothes on an elliptical. No work necessary!

    I need friends like you! People who will call out the BS against all the logic of the MFP community!

    Well done, Stacks, brilliant post. Echoes everything I have felt and said during these last 223 days (and 57 lbs). I have heard people talk about gluten free, sugar free, paleo, low carb, high carb, low fat, no fat, nutritional dense calories (WTH?). I think a calorie is a calorie is a calorie. It is a unit of energy and if you expend more than you take in you will lose weight. It is not complicated.


    Give this man a bells!

    Very well said. The hammer doesn't build the house. Nor does the nail or the board. Persistent action gets the result.

    Decide once. Keep doing it forever.

    I've noticed alot of downers on this site. People who like to bash. I don't see the point. We are all here to make changes in our lives, and we want support. I dont need to nor want to see how you ( general you ) have the only right way of doing things, and how everyone who differs is wrong. People are all different. What works for one, won't nessecarily work for another. Be helpful. Offer suggestions. Stop with the judgement. I posted a couple new threads lately, and most replies were encouraging and positive, but those few people who decide to comment abrasively just irk me to no end. It makes me wish you could moderate threads you start.
