WTF is WTG?

If you are new on My Fitness Pal (MFP), there are some acronyms you may come across. The truth is, I am pretty board with them, especially WTG - "way to go." At first, I thought it was a typo for WTF... but I am not new any more.

One day I logged that I had "burned 120 calories doing "light house cleaning."" I got like 12 "WTG!" and one "WTF!" (which may have been from my wife.) You can see why I would have been confused.

If you are like me, you respond differently based on the "perceived effort" you think one of your MFP buddies has put in. Here is an example:

dsjohndrow burned 2 calories doing 3 minutes of "Dancing with the Stars DVD"

For something like that, I would put "PE" = Pathetic Effort. In fact, I would be thinking, was it just during the commercials?

For weight loss, one must be aware that any scale victory is acknowledged. For example:

dsjohndrow lost 0.1 pound since his last weigh-in! He's lost 0.2 pounds so far.

For something like that I would comment. "TPF!" = Try Pooping First!

Food diaries are a huge part of MFP. They are like wallets in real life. Some times you let people look in them, and some times you DON'T. In there we can find out everything we need to know about you.

dsjohndrow completed his food and exercise diary for 06/14/2012 and was under his calorie goal.

I like the comment, "NETA" = No Evidence Try Again. Or "OYFD" = Open You Freakin' Diary

Had it said this, I would use a different comment:

dsjohndrow completed his food and exercise diary for 06/14/2012 and was under his calorie goal. View diary.

I write "YAW?" = You Ate What? or "NB" = No Booze? Occasionally I write "MDP" = Make Diary Private. I mean there are some things that should not be logged - or at least make them quick add calories and leave us in suspense. And no, MFP does not track testosterone.

Here are some others that need some very supportive responses:

dsjohndrow is now friends with s8fesexisapaddedheadboard, fahq2 and assfault.

Best left alone, but something like: "AMT" = And Me Too, is as encouraging as I want to be.

I don't know about you, but when I see this, it makes me nuts:

dsjohndrow posted a new topic Should I Eat My Exercise Calories

After I punch the monitor and slam the mouse on the desk, I type: "STFU!" = No.

Along the same lines is a reply to a post in the Message Boards:

dsjohndrow replied to Lost 100 Pounds (With pics)
"YLG!" = Nice Underwear (YLG = You Look Great! but no one means that.)

dsjohndrow burned 144 calories doing 20 minutes of "Walking, 3.0 mph, mod. pace, walking dog"

YDHAD!" = You Don't Have a Dog!

dsjohndrow has not logged in for 10 days and might need some encouragement.
"IBYAGFAEYEC!" = I bet You Are Getting Fat Again Eating Your Exercise Calories! or YOTL! = Your Off the List!

Here's a list of new ways to say "WTG" to your friends.

ORT = On the Right Track!
YGIM = You've Got it Made
WH2D = Working Hard Today.
POY = Proud of You
BYED = Best You've Ever Done.
NYCDI = Knew You Could Do It
LF = Learning Fast
NCSUN = Nothing Can Stop You Now
FCW
= First Class Work
GJ = Good Job
SEN = Sensational!

..and dont cringe dsjohndrow posted a new blog

Thanks for the comments and votes, you guys and gals are the best!

This made my day but you forgot to talk about people who answer questions example "What kind of protein should I buy" answer: I don't use protein so I can't help but I am interested to, or I haven't tried protein but my third cousin said it is good mayber you can tackle that on your next blog. Anyway this was TFF (Fill in anyway you like)
