I left because I am having a hard time and was being a cow basically, but i am back :D

I didnt think anyone was supporting me and now I realise thats because I wasnt really relying to anyones threads, but i was reading them so I hope you all dont think i am a total cow lol.

Plus I thought you guys were getting annoyed at me, because i tend to say I will start doing something but never come threw with the goods, but that has changed now.

Is there any b!tching going on threw pm's or something.

I have made some great online friends threw here and dont wanna see anyone go

I understand why some people find the need to leave. I have felt the same many times.

Sadly in a group so diverse as ours there will always be people who feel left out and also people we don't get along with.

There are people on here that keep to their own "group" and sometimes that can be intimidating.

Also there are people who will only comment and read certain peoples threads and posts.

Don't let that get to you. There are so many wonderful people in this site. Sadly a few of them have left because of the things that have happened on here.

i have felt that too in the past. but you get that. i found that most people i leave comments for, reply to mine :) so i mean that makes sense right? friendships only work if both parties put in effort.

but i agree there are a few goups of people on here that tend to reply only to each other. but there are also a heap of super nice people :) (including people in those groups)

but yeah. sometimes u just...gotta break freeee

i left but had to come back :p i missed it

Ah I dunno... This forum is a great support to me whether people are replying to my threads or not. I enjoy reading how people are going and what they're doing, and writing on my progress thread even if no one were to read it!
It's definitely true that the more you write on other people's threads, the more they write on yours!

This is the most supportive, friendly forum I've ever found online. It's hard to reply to all the threads though, and often I don't say anything because I figure it's all been said already, or the topic is in an area in which I have no expertise, so I can understand if people feel they're being ignored.

I'm going to make a bigger effort to join in on as many threads as possible. We all need support in our weight-loss journey so I want to do my bit in helping others. Especially since I've got so much support here in the short time I've been a member!

I'm hoping people stop leaving and that the ones who have left come back. This is a great place because of all the great people here.

i have dissaperred for a while, i still read through everyones progress and enjoy seeing everyone success but i was needed a break from it. Just my own pressure and stuff, nothing personal at all. I find thsi t be a very supportive and informative forum, and i would not lost teh weight i have s far without it. I just needed to go AWOl for a while to sort out my negativity

I completely agree with Nikki & Rachel. I too have noticed the groups but I expected that in a forum !

I've been on other forums and this has got to be the most non judgemental and welcoming forum I have been a part of.

To all the beautiful people on here that I have met, thank you, to not only helping me on this journey through support but your friendship too :)

i totally agree. this is one of the friendliest forums i've ever seen! i'm kinda oblivious to groups - i'm off in my own little world!!

i read most threads but sometimes don't reply - i need to make more time to reply to threads i think! altho it is hard sometimes!!
