Sometimes I feel like the only member here.

I swear I feel like I am the only one filling out my log or commenting in my groups. Granted I do come here A LOT but some of the people rarely post and it drives me crazy!! I need daily accountability and even looked for that when searching for a group, but sometimes I feel all alone.

Awww...we're here for you. Sometimes my group is quiet, but then I join another one.

Look for another group.
My first group was pretty quiet, but my current group's great. We log on a regular basis. We're a little slower on weekends, but that's OK. Keep searching until you find the group right for you. One tip in searching for a group is try to find the ones that have had recent updates (i.e. on the first few pages on the list of groups).

I couldn't agree more. I belong to three groups and one team (of 100+ people) and I am the ONLY one who has logged today. I realize it's the holidays, but it seems to be happening more and more lately.

I feel ya OP. Most of my groups (I don't belong to teams anymore for this very reason) are pretty active BUT sometimes I feel like the only one that is serious about losing weigt! Everyone else seems to stay the same and just be content with logging without results!
And I stress that this doesn't bother me, I am holding myself accountable, just an observation about my groups.

Don't be discouraged....

I was feeling the same way but don't forget this is ultimately for you! Just keep logging and keep positive!

I feel for you, it took me to start my own group plus several tries on others before I found one other group. I too need accountability and when you are the only one logging in and making comments its a real downer. I'm stll pretty new but what I have found is if you don't have people logging and commenting everyday or at least every other day move on to another group.

I had the same problem. This is where loving yourself comes into play. Keep logging, exercising and the pounds will come off. Join a lot of groups. Someone else said to look for the groups with the most recent activity. Go back for several days. If the group is not logging, keep looking. People start and stop after two weeks. It is very frustrating, but at the end of the day, don't GIVE UP.
