I have been using MyFitnessPal to log my food and exercise, and I'm finding it a lovely tool to use (I love the barcode scanner!!), but I need to add some accountability.
When I successfully lost weight for my wedding, and kept it off until the DC arrived, I was part of an online diet community where we had support groups, and even some fun competitions between teams to reach weekly weight loss/exercise goals. I found it really worked for me. I was more able to resist that extra slice of cake when I knew that it everyone would know about it, and that I would be letting my team down if I didn't make my weight loss goal for the week.
So, since MyFitnessPal allows you to have friends from Facebook, I have formed a secret (you can't see it unless you're a member) Facebook group, and I'd love you to join me there.
I though that in the beginning, we'd just go for mutual support and accountability, with MyFitnessPal posting our daily summaries so we can all see how each other are doing. Then maybe later on, if people are keen, we could even try out some friendly competition.
Who's keen? Shout out on this thread, and I'll PM you the link to the group.
Thanks Annie - it has just popped up in my newsfeed and I then clicked over to DH's Fb account and checked my profile as one of his friends and you can't see it, so the privacy all appears to be working. So long as we post into the group and not our walls it should all stay private.
Annie I would like to join your MFP group please. I was using it in the autumn and doing quite well but a combination of things meant I fell off the wagon big time. I think a group of MN MFPs would be a good motivator! :-)
