Want to be in a national magazine?

UPDATE:  Thanks everyone, we've received enough volunteers.  If you missed out or aren't selected, please don't be disappointed. We hope there will be more opportunities like this in the future!


A national magazine recently contacted us looking for a MyFitnessPal user to do a very short blurb on in an upcoming article.  They are looking for someone who meets the following criteria:

  • Female
  • U.S. resident
  • Age 20-49
  • Lost between 20-40 pounds using MyFitnessPal

Your name would be included in the article along with a headshot. 

If you're interested in being included in the article, please send me a short message on MyFitnessPal with a bit of your story on how MyFitnessPal has helped you reach your goals.  You can send me a message by clicking on the link below: 

Thanks in advance everyone for volunteering!  Hope you are all enjoying the site.

Mike & Al

Cool, if only I were a female, and had only lost 20-40 pounds... Hope someone steps up.

I agree, it's a great opportunity for MFP. although the more popular we become the more crazies that join. oops, did I say that out loud?
Learning2LoveMe wrote over 3 years:
I lost 25 lbs using MFP a couple years ago... then I gained back 30... and now I'm back using MFP again and have lost 12 lbs. Does this qualify me? haha
Cytherea wrote over 3 years:
Just curious, why only between 20 and 40 lbs? I'd be interested, but I've lost 60! LOL =)
SarahWrittenThin wrote over 3 years:
Hey Mike, I'm 23 years old and while being here on MFP I have lost a total of 30 pounds by tracking my calories and keeping an eye on my sodium and carb levels. I've met a lot of friends on here that have helped support me through all the rough patches that we all know are bound to happen with weight loss and I know that by having these friends I will make it to my final goal! I would love to be included in your project and regardless of the results I applaud everyone for making a lifestyle change for the better!

Why aren't Canadians allowed? or any other Countries...! Seems VERY unfair...!!!!!! But, I know it's the RULES...ugh!
mariapuhl wrote over 3 years:
OLP76 - it could be the magazine that is asking for that criteria, not MFP.
OLP76 wrote over 3 years:
That's what I said 'I know it's the RULES'... :) lol

too bad it is only for U.S. Citizens.....oh well good luck to whoever!
jhoffman27 wrote over 3 years:
I think it should be for people that lost 50+ pounds. Those people are the ones that really had MFP change their lives.
princess4mimi wrote over 3 years:
YAY!!!! I am going to suggest this to a couple of my MFP pals for now, but maybe in 5-6months I could be in the next one...getting rev'ed up for the upcoming nuptials.....WOOOOp WOOOOOP!!!!

My daughter meets the age requirement, but she's lost well over 100 pounds!!!! She introduced me to MFP and I will be forever grateful to her!!
stephanielynn76 wrote over 3 years:
I'm interested! Messaging you now :)
JodiS75 wrote over 3 years:
@jhoffman27... Just because some of us don't have over 50 pounds to lose doesn't mean it's been any less of a struggle or true lifestyle overhaul. Anyone who has stuck with something long enough to show results deserves credit ;-)

Mike & Al,
Be sure to let everyone know who gets picked and please as for rights to post the article to your Blog.

Thanks again for an awesome website / fitness community.

I'm jealous. I wish I had thought of the idea first. Oh well, I'm just glad to be a part of it and losing weight. ;)

oops... I meant ask for rights... sorry.

Why is there a limit on the weight loss?
kirstinkrueger wrote over 3 years:
20-40 on this site or overall? I have lost 40lbs on this site but 130 overall.....
JodyWoo wrote over 3 years:
That's too bad that people who haven't lost huge amounts aren't allowed, also. There's people here who have lost over 100lbs and are huge motivators for a lot of us!
JodyWoo wrote over 3 years:
*have lost*
Not to say smaller amounts aren't motivators too, I think lifestyle changing is fantastic at any size!
lizhipwell wrote over 3 years:
Bummer, I only just found out you were doing this. I guess I missed out. That's okay. I am getting what I want out of MFP. It is helping me on so many levels. I was diagnosed with diabetes and high cholesterol at the end of February and started MFP that same day. As of today, I am no longer diabetic, my cholesterol is in the normal range, and I have lost over 30, I want to thank MFP! It is literally helping save my life. The best of luck on your article....
