You WILL FAIL with MFP, like every other diet...

    Indeed. Fad diets are bull**** as well. Eat good--limit the not so good stuff. Exercise some and you will see changes. No excuses.

    Thank you for your inspirational post which i happened to come across at a perfect time. I totally agree with all you say and it is how I've been successful with my life changes and weight loss (because of MFP).

    In the last couple days, I've gone a little backwards and know I have to get a handle on it ----decisions! Your post is that "banner" I needed to see today to nudge and encourage me that MFP works when I allow it to.

    Thanks bunches! At the end of today, I will say to myself that your post helped me have another successful MFP day. This is much better than what I could be saying - that the day was not successful because I chose to sabotage my progress once again

    And because it isn't YOUR way of doing things you feel the need to come along and put someone down? Other's (and I'd be willing to wager they aren't ALL Americans (as if that makes a difference)) found it inspirational and motivational...how is that bad??

    That's not quite what I meant - though I can see how it reads like that if you miss the self deprecating humour of the Sherlock reference.

    BUT if you want to slate me, go for it! I didn't find it inspirational or motivational and I find the practice of praising the obvious as though it were a statement of genius extremely unsettling.

    And as this is a forum and I have the right to reply, I did! As did you!

    I like MFP because of the strict personal accountability. If I keep track of my daily intake, my "mistakes" show up very quickly. At the end of the day, or even of a meal, I can see exactly where I took in too much fat, too much sugar, too little fiber, etc. It really helps guide me in meal planning. It also makes me conscious (I use a Fitbit) of how little I actually exercise in my "normal" activities. If I find in the afternoon I have burned only 700 calories all day, I go for a walk or walk on a treadmill or some other cardio exercise. It has made a huge difference.

    I completely agree. There have been times when I have a bad weekend and eat whatever the heck I want, but I get right back on track and off comes the weight. I am real close to my goal, but don't intend to stop using MFP. It helps keep me in check and motivates me to continue my healthy lifestyle; not a DIET. I don't worry a great deal about what types of food I eat, but of course you can eat a lot more of some foods than others for the same caloric intake. I just try to balance the good with the bad.

    I liked it :)

    (of course, I'm also just an American, so I guess that's why.)

    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!".

    /sarcasm

    Awww! Don't go. (More sarcasm)
