    Ditto to all the names mentioned and for that matter most of the people posting in this thread who haven't already been named.

    One I'd add that I don't think I've seen mentioned is @ninerbuff
    Gratitudes. I enjoy engaging and doing what I can on the boards. Eventually there will be people who learned from some of us, who will carry on and help others too.

    I know we've derailed a little bit, so I wanted to bring it back a bit.

    I want to say, there's several users who aren't even on my FL, and some now that are (because I'm a chicken when adding people and shy about it for some reason) that offered me heartfelt congratulations and well wishes when I had my baby in January. It really gave me "dem feels". I felt so accepted and cared for, I can't even express it properly. It really made me feel that there are some truly great and wonderful people on MFP. I really appreciate that, and I think it's something that will stick with me forever. It's a shame those messages get lost in the inbox feature of MFP.

    So, thank you, MFP community. Thank you for being caring (in all forms). Truly, it's wonderful to be a part of.

    Well, she is the cutest baby ever (outside of my niece), and you're obviously an excellent mom to her and your other one. You deserve all the love.

    Aww, thanks! <3

    Lol, I'm consistent though. I modded one of my own clients who posts on here. Talk about awkward at the next training session.

    Just stroll my friends list, and you'll see a plethora of awesome people - some of the best MFP had to offer to my husband, sister, and best friend. They all offer me different bits I need from a good throat punch, hugs, kind words, and solid advice when I'm floundering. When I'm ready to begin my lifting adventure I have the best of best to guide me.


    If you're awesome and not on it, well then fix that ish. ;)

    I don't disagree. But I bet I run a faster 40 yard dash though. :D

    There are so many of you guys that I have learned so much from recently. I may have been here on and off since 2012, but I didn't know nor understand half of what I do now since lurking and reading posts from certain posters, who may or may not all be named on this thread. I appreciate the no bs, cut & dry, and blunt honesty. So, to all of you, a sincere and heartfelt "Thank You"!

    Hey guys, this discussion was begun with the intent to thank folks who have helped us along our way. (YAY) It has turned into something else (BOOO), and will be removed for a bit while we take a look.

    Cheers,

    I was looking for this thread earlier, I am glad it is back so I too can pay homage to those who have helped along the way...

    As someone who originally just lurked and learned, many of the people who helped me out have already been named but a couple may not have been or need extra props... some of these people don't venture into the forums anymore so not sure if they will see the props or not.

    And not to exclude the guys: @trogalicious that beard is magnificent and so is your gif... @ndj1979 you never back down from a fight... @tincanonastring I love the Peeps cleanse

    I'm glad this thread is reopened. I read through it when it was locked and wanted to reply.

    There are sooo many, so I'll just say I cosign all of those mentioned before.
