Default Myfitnesspal Accountability

hi everyone. So Ive been using myfitnesspal to log my food for the past year and its been great for me. Its such a wonderful weight loss tool, but after a year of pretty strict dieting, and a recent surgery, my will power isnt what it once was as far as food goes. Im looking for a group of fellow fitnesspal users who would all hold each other accountable for their daily food intake. We all have rough days, so Im not talking about someone to nag you if you eat a cookie instead of an apple (unless thats what you need). I think just having people who are checking up on your food journaling will help hold us all more accountable for our food. And the odd words of encouragement and praise are certainly helpful too.

I am very active on MFP. please feel free to add me erindoetsch1979

I love being able to share my diary. Gives me more accountability knowing that others will see what I am eating. And I love to check out other peoples because I get food ideas. I hate when people have their's private. To me it defeats the purpose of adding friends to support you since they can not see what your really eating.

Is there anyway to set up MFP with the Weight Watchers point system?

I have the hardest time remembering to put stuff into MFP. I work nights so i don't know exactly how to put in my meals... Any advice?

I very diligently use MFP (I dont log exercise though.. I'd rather not think I have extra calories I can eat up)

I've added those who shared their username, except edoetsch1, I can't seem to find yours on there?

My diary is open to friends. If I'm too embarrassed to log it, I probably shouldn't be eating it!

I'm curious what everyone had set their daily calorie goal to. I found when I entered all my information into the myfitnesspal app, it told me I should be eating something like 2400 calories a day, and after trying it a few weeks I saw no results, so changed to 1600 calories and have been much more successful.

I eat between 1100-1400 but I set my goal at 1350. It gave me 1200 and some days that isn't enough, and I don't think going over 1200 is considered a "bad day" so I changed it.

Thinking of joining guys and gals. Add me! dropitlikeitshot3.

I've never done the accountability thing, but I'm trying to lose 30 by August (ish), so it's probably a good time to start.

I've been doing 1500 calories, which is totally sustainable, but if I'm not dropping the lbs, I'm going to have to move down to 1300 or 1400. Bummer :-P
