Mike & Al,

Thank you so much for your site! I found out about it from a friend and since then have gotten 10 other people to join me - including my 89 year old grandmother! It has changed our lives and our eating habits. My sincerest thanks! Amy

Congrats Tamara from me as well. And thank you for mentioning MyFitnessPal on TV. I joined this week also after I saw you on the today show. BTW - I LOVE the iphone app! Great site!!

I am so glad to see MFP getting some national coverage. I have read several articles recently that site food diary web sites as a great way to get healthy but they alway mention other sites, not MFP. I have tried some of those other sites and MFP is by far the best one out there. It is easiest to navigate and it doesn't overload our inboxes with annoying emails. Thanks Mike & Al, keep up the great work. Great job Tamara! So much to be proud of!

Well i was watching the Show.. and immediately run to the computer.. i found that i was registered already.. (bummer) but it made me actually take a deep look to my account and the benefits of using MFP in both my PC and the iphone app. immediately i started using it.. now me and my wife just love it! by now we're tracking everything and with the goals we're trying to reach it is working. this thing really makes you think about all of the food out there that are killing us. Thanks Tamara for all of your effort and goals reached, and thanks MFP for being there for her and for all of us.

Great for her, amazing story just goes to show you , anything is possible, and you don't need expensive things or equipment to do it...just get out there and move....but also, again a lot of credit to MIKE for developing this amazing site and keeping it free for us.....

Tamara, you look amazing. Congrats on what you've accomplished. It's great that you are now teaching your children the benefits of eating well and exercising- a gift that will continue to keep them healthy too. You're an inspiration to us all and I'm glad you told the world how wonderul MFP is to us who struggle with weight too. This is one website I came back to again and again and now I'm really sticking to it and have lost almost 10 lbs recently. :)

You looked so beautiful Tamara!! Congrats to you =)
cparter wrote 95 months ago:
Awesome video testamony. It would be neat if I or some of the other success stories get recommended and go on to tell about their journey. Although I will not meet my goal weight until next year and run my first full marathon next March. I will definitely give this site props and anyone else who have learned from this social network should do the same.

yep it was the Today show segment that got me here and all I can do is talk to people about this site, and invite friends cause we all wanted it but didn't know it existed.

I did see this show and Tamara is the reason I am now a member! I have been amazed with this site. It has truly given me insight into what I eat and just how unhealthy some foods are and just not realizing it until now. Thank you all!!
StacySkinny wrote 94 months ago:
Tamera, I'm so proud of you, sweetie! That's awesome! I've been a fan of the Joy Fit Club for a while now because it's given me some great inspiration and motivation! It's so good to see a MFP member gracing the show! If she can do it, we ALL can do it! :D

Wooo Girl! What an incredible story.... gives me goosebumps! You're a real inspiration to so many. Keep up the AWEsome work to help others now that you've gone through this journey to regain your health. You're going to keep on going.... higher & higher! :-)
MonicaElaine wrote 94 months ago:
Thank you for your story Tamara it motivated me so much and after watching your story 3 times I went and joined. I have lost 5 pounds and 9 inches! :-) Thanks for giving me the push I needed and the tools to stay on track.
MandeePrimo wrote 94 months ago:
I became soo motivated when I saw the Today show piece! I have the exact amount of weight to lose as you did Tamara. I have often convinced myself it was an impossible thing to do but I have worked at being consistent with the food diary and thankfully have a consistent exercise regimine present itself. Thanks for having the courage to pursue your dream and sharing your story with us. I felt you should know you stirred up the dream in my heart of a life of wellness and fitness. Thank you, as well to Mike and Al...I would not have worked at this if your sight was not available. Many, Many thanks and God Bless!

Awesome story and what a transformation!! Tamara is truly an inspiration. My only "beef" with the story was calling MFP a "diet plan." It isn't. I view it at as guide for a lifestyle change. Diets end and I think just about every person on this site realizes they are making changes in how they eat and exercise for life.

Once again, though, congrats to Tamara and thank you Mike for an incredible site. You deserve a Nobel Prize for this!
