    I'm here to monitor my nutrition leading up to and past my first triathlon. The website makes it very easy to do.

    I'm here again because last time around MFP helped me lose 37 lbs! I regained most of it when I injured my back, waited 9 months for surgery in terrible pain. There's a longer story, but I am now 'healthy' enough to give it another shot. Good luck to you all!

    I wish I was near a beach! I'm doing this to be more comfortable in my own skin, and to not slide the opposite way.

    I went vegetarian a year and a half ago. I hit my goal weight and I feel amazing. I recently added seafood and am now weight training to tone up. My trainer put me on the app and I love it. Although counting calories is making me not so happy. Lol! But it will pay off!!! Good luck!

    I'm here because I've always been self conscious about my weight and want to get in shape and feel better about myself, and to make friends of course. My personal trainer told me to get the app last year and it's been great for me to be able to track my food! Good luck on your journey!!

    It's been a great source of confidence with me too! I've found that I've grown a lot more confident with myself ever since I'm lost weight and it's a great feeling to have. You too!

    Hi! I'm Tina and I'm here because I weigh more than I ever have and I am middle aged so the time to start is now. Also I am planning a trip to Mexico next winter and I want to feel comfortable in my body and in pictures for the trip.

    Having workout buddies makes me accountable. Have about 25 lbs to lose and not stopping!
