GlennM's Journal, 25 July 2014

Hi all, I noticed long-term friends have drifted off of here... the set-up of the site is NOT user friendly anymore - one possible reason so many have dropped off of here. Five, six years ago - dozens would be on here together conversing and that is long gone now. My weight is steady. I started lifting weights very little each day, but it is showing already with a flatter stomach. I went off Atkins. I was NOT losing. I am eating less calories now though so that is good. I need to move more - that is the true key to losing weight and also not to eat desserts.

Good for you, I joined this site years ago, and didn't understand how it worked, I joined it again in April and now it makes sense to me. I couldn't figure out how to journal the food, its easy now, that's why I came back.

Thanks both - Karen - this site is a MESS now. Really. Before all your buddies' journals popped up. This kept an immediate sense of community on here. Now I can't find anyone - because they basically all LEFT.

If I understand what you're looking for, I think it's an easy fix. Look at the top here and you'll see "Recent Activity". To the right you'll see a pulldown of various sorting criteria. Just use the selection for my buddies. Sometimes people leave. Happens on every message board I've ever been on. Either they've given up on their food changes, found a different place that appealed more or just general life stuff happening. People move on.

Yes and new people arrive. :) I really like Fatsecret and liken it to Facebook for Dieters. True, it has changed a bit, but I like it more now and have learnt to tweak the settings. I am trying a new food journal instead of Fatescret's one. Its called PaleoTrack. Points for and against. It gives me more info. I just need to understand that info! LOL!

Yes, people do move on. Some pass away. Loosin' I think passed on... and one guy was on here for months and had many, many friends and he disappeared one day. He posted pictures and things. I am doing OK but I need to walk more - but I have become allergic to sunscreen and of course the nurse does not care to call back and no appointment until the end of August.
