PT longtime loggers

I am wondering how many people are out there who are long time loggers on PT? Most people I've met are just beginning there diets and their logs. I'd like to meet some more experienced weight losers. Compare logs, see what I can improve on myself and ask advice. Are you out there?

click on each member's "profile" and see what their join date is. then you can see how long they've been on PT and go back and read their old logs and see their progress. there are a LOT of members who have been here for a year or two or more!

You could try the PT experts team. The trick is (I found out the hard way) that the people who have been here for a while don't have any open spots in their groups.

fyi, most of the long term members have well established groups that rarely have openings. Maybe you can request that some of them start new groups for some of the new members.

I've been logging on here for over a year. Although I really lost most my weight before I ever joined. I'm in 3 teams, no groups.

I've been on here for over a year and a half, and I actively avoid newbies. Very few of them stick around for even a month, which is especially sad when that person signs up at a dangerously high weight like 300 lbs. And it can be downright aggravating to deal with people who have no clue how to diet, e.g. think that because olive oil is a healthy choice, it's a "free food"; have never even heard of an elliptical machine; drink 4 Slimfasts a day for 3 days and then binge their heads off (not that I blame them - I would too!).

Your best bet for getting someone like me in your group (even though I probably sound like a selfish cow here, I'm actually a very supportive and constructive teammate) would be to make your profile public then leave a note on the person's public log expressing your interest and suggesting they look at your log. Be prepared for some lack of interest since a lot of old, active members are very likely at the full commitment level they want to handle. However, they might keep you in mind next time a spot opens up in one of their groups.
