Active teams / groups ????

Hello everyone... I just joined yesterday and outside of this team & weekly ewigh in are there any other active Groups or teams? It seems the ones I joined have no activity at all in the community section and little to none in the comment section.. I am really looking forward to using this site to help lose weight and hold me accountable for my actions.

thanks
tammy

This section is not a team or group. It's only an open forum. Are you an actual member of a group or team? Did you click JOIN underneath a group or a team?

Actually, if you're on a team, there is a "community" tab where you have threads and comments just like this Lounge community, but just for team members.

accountability

I to am wanting a group that will help keep me accountable. Was in one group and I was gone for a few days. When I returned I was the only one in the group. How does this happen.

Have to log

I think there is monitoring of logging and if one doesn't log; one is out! It's better, IMO, to be a member of a team rather than a small group. Some of the team members disappear from time to time but it's not as noticeable as a in small group. Good luck!

the comment of 1/4/07 at 256 pm is exactly what happened to me, too!! i felt like a complete failure!! although i understand that other members of the site have more drive (and time to log) than me, i felt really abandoned. i suggest to a lot of new comers that they check out teams instead of groups until they have gotten into a real habit of logging everything every day and are ready to make comments to other group members. i would hate for another person who is trying to get their health & weight in check to feel the way i felt when i went back after a long weekend to find i was alone in both groups i had joined. (i do not have a home computer and have limited time at work to use the web for personal reasons. i also do not have a car and there is no public transportation available in my rural area to take me to the library. for me to log over weekends or in the evenings is very difficult. i would rather spend that time and energy working out.)

The team 'Weekly Weigh in Daily Accountability' is incredibly active with lots of regular challenges - feel free to come in and join.

Also, if you know you'll be away for a while, use the 'on vacation" feature so that you don't get logged off-- or, if you are in a small group (4 people), if the group sets itself as "private" then you shouldn't get booted... ;-) That's what my very 1st PT group did-- now a days, we don't log nearly as much, but it keeps us together. (we actually went outside and formed a yahoo group to stay in touch outside of PT as well!)

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
