Peer Trainer Site

Any thoughts on how this site could be improved? I would like for our team to have a ticker where we can input how much weight we have lost - or at least a way to input weight loss/gain for everyone to see. Some sort of chart? I don't know...Something...Thoughts?

i think that board comments should list which member published them. I think it would do away with a lot of the extra negative comments from people. Plus, it would give us all a chance to know some members and their lifestyles better than just the few in our groups.

i would like to see specific areas for weight to be entered and see a progress chart of the weight loss. sometimes seeing your results on a chart makes it more real...just a thought.

I completely agree on a spot in our logs to put in our weekly or monthly weight log-ins! It would feel more organized. Great idea. :D

thanks! i would also like to see an automatic tickler for food value, calories, fat, fiber, etc. it sure would make it easier to track what we're eating.

I agree with more calorie counting and weight loss entries. I go to WebMD for that right now. but it would be really nice to have it all i one place!
I do think that the Community should be annonomous unless you choose to put your name on it. That way you can be more upfront about your issues without feeling judged. We jsut need to igore the nasty people out there...

I appreciate that we are annonomous here. If not I would rarely say anything, I am just too shy.
I would also like some sort of weightloss tracker.
Also a place to mark the water intake.
And where we have personal notes I wish it were only for that day and not carry on through every day. There are things I would post for my own benefit but aside from dating everything there is no way to know when it was posted and it would eventually get too long.

Maybe just a straight-up chronological log. I like to have sub-tallies of my calories, but the 'snacks' section always throws me off.

I'm thinking almost like a daily planner that is visible to other group members (like google's calendar program...).

yeah - i think incorporating a calorie space would be good.

weight ticker for the teams would be interesting - which teams are really losing...

i think commenting should remain anonymous. even when they require a name, you can just put empty space or + signs...

How long is a thread active on PEERtrainer before it is deleted, archived, or otherwise goes away? Is it possible to have threads not bumped to the top every time a comment is left on it and instead just list it in a section of recently active threads where if a member is interested they could just click on the link there?

I would like a way to search previous days for a specific food item. Everytime I have homemade meals, I have to remember about when I ate it last and look through days or weeks of logs to find out how many calories I counted it for last time. I really don't want to add the homemade meals to the caloriewiki since it is specific for me and not anyone else on the site.

Deleting comments

I would love to have the ability to delete comments that I personally have left when I inadvertently leave something for the whole group that was meant for one person or if I notice after I post it that it isn't worded as I meant for it to be.

A few things:

- Put a snack section between breakfast & lunch and another one between lunch & dinner.

- Have the option to enter a numeric value for each item in our meal logs ... it could be used to count weight watcher points or calories.

- Have the option to delete a comment that you've made

- Have a section where you can record weight loss progress

I agree with 1:48

I love these ideas. The only other thing I would add it to make the "group comments" section easier to read. All the posts just seem to run together. It would be great if they could be separated by color like here...gray, white, gray, white.

i think the group section could be much improved. the community section is great, but i completely ignore my 'group' - we aren't really getting to know each other. what is the point? it is like living with your family, you sneak out to party with your friends all of the time and then your mom is like, 'we never talk...' haha!

When someone leaves a comment on your public log, it would be nice if their username at the end of the comment was a link to their log.

I do a weighttracker in my goals that I fix everytime I weigh in. I also just put a number in() when using my WW pts. For my snacks I put AM snack, afternoon snack, PM snack then people know I didn't sit down & eat it all at once. You can improve your log without having to change PT.

I think the point is it would be more convenient if PT added some of these enhancements. Of course people are able to work around the system, everyone does. The point of this thread is to give helpful suggestions.
