What’s your driving force for being here?
Be honest.

    Because I was danged sick and tired of being my own lowest priority.

    I took care of everyone else in my life for years. I took better care of my pets than I took care of myself. I took better care of people I DIDN"T EVEN LIKE than I took of myself. I had this whole LIST of things I wanted to do, that I kept putting off for 'later' - after the kids were grown, after I lost weight, after no one else needed me.

    I got sick of it.

    I matter, too and later may not even EXIST.

    Three forces...
    1. Mastering mindset
    2. Playing Acronym Game
    3. Serendipitous cufflink pics

    I love calorie counting, planning/recording/analyzing and trying to meet nutritional goals
    ...even tho I fail hard, often

    Calorie and exercise counting is easy for me to do in my head - but I prefer to look at it visually

    I found the forums, (chit chat specifically) - find them (it) fun (and / or triggering) both of which are a win?! Engages your mind? Being triggered and going on a rant - I love it!
    ...side note (success stories forum is super cool too ❤)

    I found another site that is "better" for calorie/exercise counting, easier to use with a better, quicker to use database of ACCURATE entries - but mfp has more customizable features for free - so it reigns a smidge superior.

    Forums here win over other health/fitness sites I've tried by 10,000,000% - I can't even...

    People biitch about the moderation here, but it is quite liberal, (or maybe just has funner people engaging?) than all the other health/fitness sites I've 2 and 3 timed with

    ...so I keep coming back

    Basically for the people - as I said, there are better, more easily accurate calorie/exercise tracking apps out there, but the social aspect and customizability (for free compared to other apps) are the reason I come back here.

    ...Its super cool to note too, I've been here since 2017 - a lot of people come and go, change names - but come back
    ... ... ...

    either (we/they) are possessed and mind controlled (I can buy into that)

    ...or its a good, fun, (generally) positive experience (and community)

    *YaY Us!!* Lets make a chit chat *lifers* PaRty DaY!!

    It should be either Monday or Wednesday since everyone is here when they are most bored at work.
