    lol the only friends I have on here that have disappeared from my news feed are people that are my friends in real life! I still see them all the time in person, but we never mention the fact they aren't logging anymore.

    My current MFP only friends are also disappearing. They're losing so much weight & getting so awesome they're disappearing before my eyes!

    I had some friends recently drop out of existence. Sometimes I think MFP drops people. I have seen some leave and come back with another account. People come and go with their logging (including myself) this time of year. There's work, There's extra work that has to be done before vacation. There's shopping to do (more so than usual). There's school performances. There's visiting family or family to visit. There's just a lot more than normal this time of year.
    As for the chocolate..... Well, new year's eve I do death by chocolate party including a chocolate fondue fountain and Godiva liqueur. Good way to get my chocolate fix in for the year.

    Hi @slucki01 I think that aside from having to enter what is being eaten over the holidays, sometimes we just don't want the system to add up and give a true account, LOL! I totally get it, but I am going to try to log in no matter how bad it is...That is my goal anyway! Keep doing what you are doing :)

    Most of my friends still post, and I'm still at least logging every day, and still losing! I know that life won't stop for me, so if I can continue to lose during the holidays, I can do it any time! I still eat plenty of treats, but I fit them into my calorie goals, and make sure to exercise. I only eat what I deem worthy-looks really tasty! I am not above taking a bite of a cookie and tossing the rest. :)

    It could be, just yesterday I had someone tell me - why don't you just take a break and wait until the new year and start again! Maybe that is how some feel, while I am sure taking a break would not result in my gaining back 94lbs but there is no guarantee that I would start again in January.

    This can be a tough time for some with it getting dark early and the cold it can be depressing. I have been trying to remember how I made it through last year - I certainly did not take a break.

    I get it. I'm not always meeting my goals but I'm logging because I know once I stop logging I'll go off the rails

    I understand its hard. This week has been a challenge for me as well. Of course, next couple weeks will be tough as well. I figure my focus is to maintain and at least not gain. You can add me if you want, I'm cool with motivational support. I'm trying to log in and document my calories every day still. I'm not perfect.

    I could use some more motivational friends if you would like to add me. I am fully committed to changing my lifestyle and my main goal is to log every day. I respond as much as I post. Good Luck everyone!!

    I have noticed that they are not participating as much but I will not let it slow down my progress.

    i figured they all went back to 1955, accidentally interfered with their parents meeting and tried to get them together and then failed, which means that they were never born and they are erased.....................................





    from existence!

    You, sir, are a genius. lol. My FL is rapidly shrinking, but I talk to most of them outside of MFP anyway, so it's not a huge deal. I guess they just got sick of it.

    I think 5 or 6 of my friends haven't logged on for at least a month but there are also 5 or 6 others who are really actively logging, commenting, and liking things every day. I hope the people who stopped logging on will come back someday.

    That's me! I'm nowhere near perfect with my logging and stuff but if I don't do SOMETHING, then I will just go crazy. Next thing I know, BAM, ten pounds!
