Any of my peeps in here want to start a new support group thread?

Even thought I have been here forever, I have no place now. The thread I was with in the century club since my start date has completely gone. The only two regulars that were with me have been MIA for a long long time. A few random people post in there every now and then but it's not the same.

I really miss having a group I can go to every day to share my struggles, successes, food, exercise, whatever. Just a place to belong. Peeps, ya know?

I love cooking and talking about weight loss, it helps keep me on track. After this 6 month long stretch of being out of the game, it took me forever to get back on solid track and when I'm in it I'm in it. I just want some people to go through the journey with.

I was just going to see if anyone in the Main LC Lobby would like to start a new support thread group? I don't care if you are at goal, century club, have 20lbs to lose, it doesn't matter. I just feel more comfortable with my people that I see and talk to here.

If you are new to the Main Lobby, that's cool too! The more the better. I just really miss having a group to belong to.

I need a home too MsWoods. I have been here forever but don't belong to any threads but the walking thread. I would love a place to share the day to day adventures of longterm low carbing and I already know I like your recipes! I think we all need support!

Clackey - I know your name too as our paths have crossed on several threads. Will be nice to get to know you better.

And Mistizoom - glad to meet you!

MsWoods - I'd like to join in also. I'm pretty much at goal but wouldn't mind losing 5-10 lbs. I've been at this so long that I just eat low carb but I also love to cook so eat well but also eat a dessert every day. I spend most of my time in the recipe help and suggestions thread but I peek in the main lobby most times that I'm on the board. I like reading what everyone else is doing.

I've posted with you, Clackley and Mitzi before so feel like I'm among friends. Hi to Shunsweets and HellInYourEyes, look forward to "talking" to you.

I may not post every day, but I'll check in regularly.

Hi to you too, Gaviv, we must have posting at the same time.

Fantastic Greer and Tweaker!

You know I love cooking as well. I usually hang around the recipe boards but they seem so dead lately! Just like the main lobby. Where has everyone gone?

Count me in! I'm 42 lbs. down with 18 to go. I'm certainly finding it slower and slower as I get closer to goal. Look forward to getting to know everyone!

I'd love to join in. None of the challenge threads really appeal to me right now, but it's nice to be able to have a steady group of peers as support.

I would love to join as well. I've be lurking on this site for far too long, not accomplishing anything. Time to be accountable!

MsWoods I'd love to join also. Starting to deal with the beginings if menopause and I've gained 25 lbs some how over night. This kind of weight gain is not like me at all. I need to get back on track and deal with this.
