Challenge accepted. I feel like I owe "back taxes" on this, actually, so maybe I'll try to do more than five posts per visit.

I saw this site a few years ago and just ruffled through the posts without commenting...

I'm trying now though! *comes out into the sunlight and blinks in confusion*

Hey lovelypurple, looking at your location and your progress pics (you in your DH's cammies), we're probably not too far apart.

I'm not a total lurker, but I read way more than I post (except for one thread in the general chatter section). It is funny, I actually read this earlier and didn't post. I got to thinking about it and I have been saying the same thing that I need to post and be more supportive to others who have been supportive to me. So, I'll take the challenge, too.

Who you calling a lurker?!

Oh, right.

Anyway, I always feel like there is so many smart people on these boards that I would just end up saying "Yeah! What she said" all the time.

But, I will try to do better. Promise.

Eh, I like to lurk.

I mean, I have lots of sarcasm that can be taken the wrong way when being read on the internet ;>

So I post if I have something serious to contribute. Because a lot of times it can come across as me being snippy instead of trying to be funny.

Shut up!!!!!!

I have that problem too!!! I just resently discovered that the more I use these little emo-smilies the more I'm understood...

I have seriously made people upset when I was just trying to be funny.

The emo-smilies really do help convey meaning more clearly...I use them all the time.

I love when people come out of lurkdom. People contribute so much, and they'd probably don't they had so much to say and add until they try! I know I didn't...I lurked for a long time, jumped in, and now you can't shut me up!

It's okay to just agree with what others have said. It can really help the OP when they see multiple people saying the same thing... it's kind of like, "Hey, if this has worked for so many people... maybe it'll work for me, too!"

I'm a horrible lurker! I spend an insane amount of time on here but rarely actually post. There's this one message board I've been on for nearly 6 years and have posted less than 10 times, yet check it daily! It's strange because in real life I'm sooo social and have tons of friends but in the internet world I'm so shy. But I'm really trying to post more! You guys have given me so much support and I'm really trying to be there for all of you as well.

It's actually pretty interesting to read why folks don't post.

Ok, this is harder than I thought.
Anyone else having trouble making the 5 posts per day?

Forgot to add: You know, I used to post so much more when I first joined the site. But when I gained back weight I had already lost, I started to feel that I really don't have much to say. Loss of confidence, I guess. I also find that I add a disclaimer at the end of any advice I give... "not that I'm an expert at losing weight, obviously". Hmm. Makes me think I need to get rid of the negative thoughts.
