Posting Daily...Does anyone do it?

I have been in several groups and I am the only one who posts daily. I even specifically join groups that are for daily posters but I'm still the only one consistently doing it. Am I the only one or what?

No, you're not the only one. It's a minority, but if you've tried several groups without luck, you're doing worse than average. Sorry to hear that... keep trying.
The group profiles tend to get out of date. When the membership of the group turns over, the description may not fit any of the people who replace them. Athough any group member can update the profile, often that never happens.

I was frustrated at first because I post every day and then I'd keep checking only to see my own posts. My suggestion is to start your own group or join a bunch and then chances are there will be more activity sooner or later. Good luck!

I log daily and so do my other group memebers. One is MIA but I think she is on vacation or something. I have been in groups though that don't log and it is frustrating and I am also looking at joining another group so if you are interested, then meaybe we should make one!

I guess people just get busy and forget but that is no excuse. If you wanted to join a group, I would be happy to post everyday. I know that if I say to you I will then that will make me take the time to do it. I need to have someone to make me accountable and so i know someone else is reading what I have eaten will make me think twice. my user name is chrissi24

I made a group called Working Hard, Logging Daily (bad name I know but it says it all). Feel free to join!

No. I have missed logging only 4 days in the last 6 weeks that I have been here. I usually post more than just my meals. I don't post comments every day in the groups and teams I belong to, but I post something here or in group or team virtually every day. Sometimes I just don't have anything to say. One of my goals is to contribute every day, but...

What you put in is closely tied to what you get out, so any one who doesn't participate is probably reaping the natural consequences.

Daily Postings

I post daily- but hey-sometimes life gets in the way. Like all things it is what you make of it. Keep trying there are a lot of motivated people who want to interact and fully utilize peertrainer's capabilities. Lead byu exampe. In my group peole talk about being motivated by seeing the postings of others- particularly the food diaries and work schedules

I try to log daily.

BTW-- there is a difference between Logging and commenting. I try to comment to help others (and to reinforce what I need to learn myself.) At the very least, I know that when I log, I feel like I'm getting something out of PT.

Maybe look into joining a TEAM-- sometimes the teams are better in terms of commenting vs. the groups. But, again, there seems to be a lot of turn-over, so just keep up your own good work and then keep looking to see which groups benefit you more. :-)

Daily logger...been here for 4 weeks.

PT serves two purposes for me. The first is personal...something about writing it all down helps me stay conscious about what I am doing...I tend to go unconscious around this stuff, get too caught up in the demands of life and I end up in trouble...less active and eating more....and eating blindly.

The second purpose is coming into community. In essence, we become "dinner partners" or "life partners" to each other. Something about tracking this information publically is very powerful. We are sitting at a huge communal table, breaking bread. I read the logs of al the active posters and I am starting to care about what I read...someone has a bad day and feels terrible, someone is moving through a rough stretch, and someone else is doing so well. I laugh and nod with recognition. We are living amazing lives.

I tend to be quiet and careful in my daily life but living in this community gives me an opportunity to step out and take part in the conversations that are happening around me. I make a conscious effort to participate and it feels "out there" at times...but whenI think about it I really appreciate when others step out and participate.

So it helps me to post and comment, and I know it helps me to read others posting and I know I must make a difference for people in my groups and teams as well.

i don't think people should feel peer pressure by others to log everyday. i log in my WW book every day, but i log three-four times a week here as reinforcement. it works for me and it shouldn't bother anyone else whether i log every day or not.

I post every day, unless I'm on vacation and I have a number of team members that post every day.

I log during the week, but it seems to be more difficult on the weekends - busy, busy. But, when monday rolls around I usually summarize my weekend for my team, so I don't lose complete track of where I am in this journey.

I'm like 12:53 - I log Mon - Fri everyday, but too busy on Sat and Sun.

Am glad you asked! I myself am feeling demoralized that no one on my team had written any comments for awhile. Had been so excited to be on Peertrainers and now wondered if it's just human nature for people to turn their attention to other things. Makes sense that it's a rare to find other daily loggers but doesn't mean they're not there. Feel more motivated to keep looking for other teams to join, etc. Was so happy with my team but will have to consider diversifying, perhaps giving up on the specificity of the theme if what I really need more than anything is the comradery of other daily sloggers/loggers!
