What I want from my group...

I know we all use PT differently and all want different things. I want my group members as motivation (as in, hey, you did great, way to go!) or to be there if I have a question. I do NOT want them reading my diet and commenting on what's wrong with it.

Just in case you were wondering, nameless groupie :)

Feel the same way!! I am here for support not to be criticized!! If they were so good about staying on plan than they would not have to be part of PT would they!! I have left a few groups for this reason.

So if you don't stay on your plan but don't want anyone to call you out on it what is the point??
Honestly, I'm just asking, not being rude.

I am completely honest in my logging and I am looking for both support and advice. So make recommendations. I do not take anything as a criticism, I just take it as input and try to give the benefit of the doubt that people are tring to be supportive.

And yes, once in a while I need a kick in the butt. But truthfully, I have never had anyone be anything but supportive. I may not agree but I don't take any advice as a negative.

I have learned so much from my fellow groupies.

I think if you are going to be in a group you better expect that they will read your log. I do because it gives me ideas. I have one lady in a group that cooks so differently from me that I get curious and have gotten some great recipes from her. If I never read her log I would never know.
I expect others to read my log and if I wanted it private I wouldn't have joined a group.

I personally do not want critisism (sp sorry)
I want encouragement. I need encouragement. I beat myself up enough and I don't have any reason to.
Thankfully I am in groups that all of them are kind and encouraging. And understanding.
I find that just logging and knowing others will see it is enough to keep me on track.

I try to give encouragement as much as possible. But occasionally I do chastise groupmates when they go for days without eating any fruits or vegetables. I try to prod gently, but they need to be called on it. PT is a place to learn as well as get support.
