John’s Weight Loss Forums

February 19, 2008 · 4 comments

One of the resources I have not found on my weight loss journey was a good, close-knit forum. I’ve probably tried them all, and for a variety of reasons I just haven’t been able to stick to one. I really feel like I am missing out by not having that added sense of community.

So, I have decided to start my own. Check out my new weight loss forums. I threw this together pretty quickly and there is a lot of cleaning up that needs to be done, but I just wanted to get it out there to see if I could get some conversations started.

You see, one of the things I feel I am not doing a good job on with this blog is extending the conversation. Thanks to all of you, I get a lot of comments on my posts. And those of you who have done so know that I respond to many, if not most, of those comments in email. Which sometimes leads to a longer conversation. But all in private.

I haven’t yet figured out how I am going to balance the comments on the blog with the conversations in the forums, but I do know that there is a huge benefit in drawing more than two people into a conversation and the blog isn’t doing that for me.

I hope you will join me on the ground floor of my new weight loss forums. Please use the Feature Request topic liberally - I’m sure many of you are more experienced with forums than I and can offer some good suggestions that I can hopefully get implemented quickly.

There is a link in the main header of this blog if you ever forget how to get there.

Thanks for taking a look and double thanks if you register and join the conversation there. I think it could be fun!

Although I’m not a fat man, but I like to read articles about weight loss. Seems like funny, but its true. Because I have opinion that trying to loss weight means trying to live health. I was visited your forum, I’ll register soon. Thanks

Hi John, that’s a good idea for extending your conversations, WTG! :)

I love the forum that I’ve been a part of since I started the 6WBMO, in fact if I hadn’t been active in that, I probably wouldn’t have started blogging.

All the best with your new forum!! :)

I recently lost 25 pounds myself, and I am still losing weight. Just wanted to say Good Job, keep it up.
