I love this site but...
Tuesday, July 24, 2012
I am so lost when I try to use it. I joined quite some time ago looking for a "free version" of weight watchers, which used to be my weight loss outlet. Unfortunately it costs too much money. So I found this site by reading about it in an extremely outdated magazine at work. Naturally, I suspected it may be as outdated as the magazine.
To my delight this suspicion did not hold true. I immediately joined and started reading through all of the different portions of this site. My two favorite: Recipes (I absolutely love cooking and am always looking for new ideas) and the tracker (the app was quickly added to my smartphone). Everything was all great until I tried to get my some of my weight loss interested family members involved in this site.
My sister signed up and, while I was able to send her a request, I do not think she was ever able to figure out how to accept me. If I try to click on her page it shows me nothing except for the fact that her page exists. I can't comment, I can't message... nothing. She got bored and then never used it... My only friend on the site gone.
I quickly learned that I do not know how to become part of this community. I joined some of the groups, but I am really not even sure how to participate in those particular communities. Simply put- I do not know how to make friends on this site. While being provided useful tools through this great site, I am alone while doing it. I would like more.
I have always been very into nutrition... I know what to do- It is just a matter of executing the advice I have for myself. Unfortunately, this is not as easy as it sounds. I think the support this site has to offer (but that I do not know how to reach) would be extremely helpful.
