Need inspiration? Meet Andrew and Bethany

Two of our own MFPers are such an amazing success story that they were featured on their local news channel!  Andrew and Bethany have lost almost 200 pounds combined, and their family is living healthier than ever. We thought the segment was great and we wanted to share it with all of you:

There are a lot of things that Al and I love about working on MyFitnessPal, but one of our favorites is that we get to meet people who inspire us on a daily basis.  There are thousands of people on the site who are reaching amazing goals.  We love reading the Success Stories forum because seeing our own members make change happen reminds us every day of what is possible in our own lives.   

Thanks Andrew and Bethany for sharing your story with us!

Hope you are all enjoying the site.

Mike & Al

Congratulations Andrew and Bethany from another Mainer. When I seen you both on the news I was so inspired that I joined that evening and had a great first week. It's great to see people succeed the old fashioned way...exercise and a healthy diet. Keep up the fight!

Bethany & Andrew:

What a terrific thing you've accomplished for yourselves and your boys. I've been here for a bit and haven't had any success yet - and it is stories like this that keep folks like me going. Thank you for being such a tremendous example.

Fantastic!!! I did what you did when I was 35. Lost 55 pounds and ended up running in 3 marathons and many 10K races. Kept the weight off for 15 years. But now I'm 65 and right back into being fat. Watching your story helped me to remember that it CAN be done, an I mean to do it again. Thanks. Keep it up!

I almost have a tear in my eye here. I basically just watched my own family story told by someone else. It's very inspirational to see that couple prosper like this, not just for themselves, but the whole family unit. I knew from the start our household could do it, this family just confirmed it. Rock on guys and thank you for posting!!
