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. :)

Hello there!
I am scarletmeshell on mfp! You can add me. I love it really. It has been a great tool. I have lost 50lbs since sept.

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?

CharityMarie 01-27-2014 05:15 PM

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

charitymarie413 is my MFP username, all adds are welcome =)

I am pretty constant at logging my meals and love having friends on mfp!

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!

This is great. I completely forgot to share mine. I'm graciaincito on there, same as here. I log everyday and share my diary.

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.

Paisleymama 01-30-2014 08:22 AM

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.

scarletmeshell 01-30-2014 09:14 PM

Is my diary private? haha just fixed it! I too like seeing the diaries. I am having trouble eating enough.

I have been using My Fitness Pal since the end of December. I would love to have more accountability.

GoingForGold82 01-31-2014 09:08 AM

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

I am going to check out this app. Can I put in previous dates? I have been tracking cal/carb/pro /fat for a about 10-12 days now.
