cry Those guys were awesome. It saddens me they had to pass away like they did. Pour one more out for the homies.

I have a few that aren't on my friend list, but I won't mention them for fear of them thinking I'm a creeper.

On my friend list:
Russellma- the most consistent woman I've met on here, and filled with gentle wisdom.
Fakeplastictree- she's a rock star!
Vaderandbill- because he forces me to try and beat him at challenges. He'll be the death of me yet. :-P
Cantjustcant- the woman's workouts put me to shame.
Terrigrace- she bikes with her kid in a bike trailer pretty much every day.
Wbgolden- he makes me want to sign up for a 5k just because I could do it, and he likes Canadians.

Others that will be edited in. :-)

I don't have an MFP friend that inspires me, but my personal hero has always been the great French cyclist Bernard Hinault.
"If I can breath, I attack"
http://zingisonandon.com/tag/bernard-hinault/

If you are interested watch this link from about 3 mins in. The young kid attacks with 500m to go and Hinault chases him down. And listen to the commentator all through to 3:45 or so. I watched that live on TV and will never forget it. Every time I think of giving up, this is my go to moment.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCF567v3sPM&feature=channel&list=UL
Best thing about this is Hinault does eventually lose the stage to Delgado (who would win the TDF in 1988). But Hinault made his point.

When there is 5 mins to go on the stepper and I think maybe I did enough, and maybe just drop down 2 levels, and warm down to the end.... "Non! push zit up a level you snivelling piece of sheet. You are soft, like sheet"

When I self-mock myself it is always in pigeon french.
I don't know why.
But I push the up button :o)

Pu_239 - I said you were awesome before, and I am extremely grateful to be listed as one of your inspirations.

That being said... what I admire most about you is that you have an insatiable appetite for knowledge - you are always trying to learn more about health and fitness and to try different things and really just to be the most knowledgeable person you can be in regards to getting fit and healthy. I hope you are REALLY proud of yourself for that - I know I am!!!

thanks A LOT. I highly appreciate it. Haha in my education, I am to the point... where it doesn't matter. The formula for weight loss or muscle building won't change. I dig as deep as I want to in to it, but... doesn't matter. The formula is already set.

I am glad you "finally" accepted me as a friend.

I love this post! All of my FL brings something different to the table but there are a few people that do stand out... in no particular order:

*BretPGH-one of my first guys on my list, showed me that "normal, former chubby guys" can get ripped and lean beyond belief through some damn hard work!! :)

*Astul-one of the first members that I friended that has lost the same amount of weight I'm trying to lose and she did it all in her 40s, so take THAT aging!! I picture her with the cutest little British accent :)

*Lumberjacks94-One of the few people that has seen me for ME and not another chubby girl that's trying to lose weight, we have become very good friends outside of MFP and I can't wait to get to meet him someday :)

*Bronx_Montgomery-is my Dominican superman! Has lost an incredible amount of weight, still beasting it and all with a gorgeous smile on his face! :)

*Shasslock-girl cracks me up, we are very alike in our personalities and she's freaking gorgeous!! ALSO has lost a TON of weight, so inspiring!!

*Gama212-is my PR bf, tells me to get my S together when I don't wanna hear it! lol :)

*rcates2424, orangecrayon, cubanita28 and jkleman79 have all been every day motivators telling me "good job" on my diary when I don't think I need it.

*Beastette-is my motivator because I just want to BE her! She's a beast in every sense of the word and she is GORGEOUS while doing it!!

* Teagin2002-has dealt with so much and has done a phenomenal job at losing so much weight and looking incredible when reaching goal!

*CoryIda, Allie_71, _christine_, hotmamasoon, snw_, BAMFMeredith, Pghsgirl, LuckyLeprechaun, maab_connor, NAMASTE1983....are all my lady-eye candy that have either reached goal or are kicking ass getting there and make my every day login experience just amazing!

and finally my man eye candy that actually are great guys and do amazing at motivating and looking delicious while doing so:
jpfost, BiscuitsNDavy, GorillanNJ, OfficialPR, PU_239, lacroyx, sdrawkcabynot, jipples, dinob661, 76tech, sumo813, mustgetmuscles1, truebluebruin7, jrm76, duharforstået, justjoshin, AR73, fieldsy4life, and HOSED79.

I've got two main ones:

YennaBean: she's my cousin/best friend and we started this together
JonGrandi88: I met him through my cousin and he's turned out to be my freaking identical twin and we're in this together.

I've got some others on here, I love my friends on here. :)

WOO HOO! I made an "eye candy" list! lol...

I am very honored to make any list that any of my pals put out. I have my bad days where my mind just isnt right, so I'm glad that in some small way, I am able to inspire and motivate others to keep pushing forward on their "journey". I also feel honored to have you as a pal!

everyone on my flist is so amazing, i'm not sure i can pick. every one of them is snarky and sarcastic and WILL kick my ass if i'm slacking off. they're funny and honest and motivating. and - with the exception of a few i'm still stalking like a lion in the wild who has spotted that perfect gazelle... but in a totally not creepy way - i have to say that i have THE MOST AWESOME ppl MFP has to offer on my list. be jealous, suckers. my list ROCKS.
