People come and go. I've heard it picks up after the holidays. It can be lonesome but at some particular time in life, we all have to inspire ourselves. Our bodies don't care if our mind is not inspired, it will go along for the ride no matter what we do.
I miss my original group. Back in the day when I started, the tougher stance on scales, weight loss talk was tightened up. It's understood and appreciated why it had to be that way. I like that no-nonsense, no messin' around kind of kick in the rear-end stance. Mr. Tom has been here a long time. He's seen and heard it all. Nothing surprises him....and yeah, I like his style and everything he writes. GFChris...ditto.
They don't soften the blow or pretty it up.
I bet it will start picking up after the weekend. If you sort the forums by "most replies," you'll see that those with Jan 1 start dates are super active, and July 1 start dates are right up there too. I'm hoping to start my second Whole30 at the end of the summer, and I'm afraid the forum will be lonely then.
