Yeah I agree. I wish I could see more people's success stories. It's great motivation to see how far ppl have come.

People have to write and submit their success stories. Maybe they just aren't doing it. I know a lot of successful pt'ers.

This is 9:18...but yeah I know ppl have to submit it themselves and I know of a lot of successful members too. But I guess ppl don't what to be in the spotlight and have pics of themselves on a public website..I know I prob wouldn't.

no pictures

Another reason may be that people don't have any good 'before' pictures. Some people (like me) don't like having pictures taken of them when they are overweigh. And if they don't plan ahead by taking a picture before their weight loss they don't have a good 'before' picture. And the best part of the success stories are the before and after pictures.

There are half a dozen people in the thread whose "Aha! I'm losing weight moment" included seeing a "fat" picture of themselves.

PT - please! Why are your Success Stories so outdated!? One is from 2006! Jen has been at it for 4 months for about 5 years now. If nothing else please change something about the website to refresh it and bring it into the new decade! At this point ANYTHING NEW would be awesome! Pleeeeeeez!

I for one used PT to release weight.. I am waiting until I get to my goal weight of 135 and than I plan on writing my success story..

maybe some people want to wait until they reach their goals. I do know alot of success stories here on pt, but people have to write their own success stories so it may be various reasons why they are not doing them,
