selfish group members?

I sort of am beginning to feel like I'm the only one providing feedback in my group. We all log, and post stuff about our feelings/days etc. And I'm the only one that ever responds to their concerns,questions etc.
Can I say something? and how would I say it? also... do you think its a sign that I should just find another group? Like honestly no one has ever given me any sort of comments.

The beauty of this site is it is anonymous. I would just tell them how you feel, be honest but don't sound mad. If they like you and enjoy your feedback they will respond. But you need to do it in the comment section of your group. If you are the only one giving feedback and no one comments to you then they aren't supporting you and they should be told this, that is what these groups are about. Its nice that they are small so we can get to know each other and give and get the support we need.

It's frustrating when you're the only one making comments. Perhaps the people who aren't commenting are just too busy or they have nothing interesting to say. I actually just left a group because I was the only one NOT commenting. I've been so busy lately, I'm lucky to keep up with my logs. I felt like dead weight, so I left to open up a spot for a more active commenter.

what's anonymity got to do with it? if you are unhappy with the lack of commication, don't fall into the same trap of NOT communicating! tell your group how you feel to find a real answer as to whether or not it's the right group for you. you should not have to tip-toe over broken glass to be honest with fellow group members or to be heard.

Do you think it is best to say something to the group before you leave about your feelings or just leave. I know that there are sometimes one group member that you feel a connection with but not the other two. Whats the best way to handle that?

you can choose to leave, set up a new group and then send private invites to the members you'd like to consider joining your new group.

I know how to set up a new group, but how do you do the invites?

when you set up your new group, there is an area on the left that says, "invite your friends"

You can also send invitations AFTER you start your group. Then you do not have to know the email addresses, just the user names, of the people you want to invite.

But really, you should first try to work things out with your group. If they do not know you are wanting something, try just telling them what you need. You are then helping them to become more supportive of everyone in their pt lives, not just you.

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:
