    Hi Countryladybug61 and welcome!

    This site helped me shed 76 pounds and I kept it off for over 12 months. Somewhere along the way I stopped using MFP to track my food and let myself gain back 20 of that. I am now back on track, and lost 8 pounds in the last two weeks. You get out what you put in... For me, accountability is key, but I find I am not too good at being accountable to myself-so I also went back to see my nutritionist (who turned me on to MFP). Once you find what works for you, stick with it!!! (Here's hoping I remember my own advice!)
  • Hey! I just started this today and wanted to add my ticker to my profile, but can't get it to work... Maybe I'm doing something wrong? can you tell me how you did it???? Thanks!
