Hello ladies!

Well, today is once again Wed and it's time for my weekly post on A BETTER ME. But, today I'm wondering if enough people are even interested in this anymore.

Each week it seems I'm getting less and less input and I don't want to keep posting if you are not even really wanting this.

This week I had two lovely ladies email me. Both have posted info on their blogs about how they are doing on A BETTER ME. Both are very much committed to this group. But is anyone else?

I've said as long as I have at least one person interested I would keep A BETTER ME GOING. However, I'm thinking of taking it off line and just going to an email group.

I need your input here. What do you want? Do you want me to stay posting weekly on my blog or just make it an email group? It doesn't really matter to me.

Please leave me a message or email me and let me know if you are interested in reading about A BETTER ME here. It won't hurt my feelings if you are not. If only a small group wants it we can make it the email group.

Thank you for helping me decide on which way to take this group.

You know Joanne...I've had the same experience. I have often wondered where everyone is...if they just aren't "into" what I'm posting on certain days or whatever.

But, I've found alot of people look at what's posted, just don't post a comment...and you NEVER know who'll you'll touch with your post. Someone NEW might come on one day and see something that motivates them into doing something to have a "BETTER ME".

If I were you...I would continue to POST!!! Let yourself be surprised at the results!!

Hi Joanne! Well, as you know, it took me a while to get committed and start the Better Me program (the end of January), but I've now jumped in with both feet and would love to see your weekly Better Me posts continue. But that being said, I understand the amount of time that goes into a blogpost, and if you feel the interest level isn't there, I understand you questioning whether you should continue.

I hope you receive a lot of comments from people who want it to continue, and maybe even some new people who would like to join!

Just a thought... Some people might not have emailed you because they had a weight gain this week, rather than a weight loss... So maybe next week you'll get tons of e-mails if eveyrone has a good week!

Hi Joanne!

Now you KNOW I want to continue one way or the other! I am committed to your program. I understand your concern about interest & comments. It takes time and brain power to create a post & you hope that people will enjoy it and respond.

I will continue no matter what. I hope you continue on posts but if not I WILL be emailing you!!

Hugs, Sherry

Hello Joanne; Even though I am not participating I do enjoy reading about how you are doing. I have not been by for awhile which I am sorry about, I think you should do what you feel is right for you. What you and the other ladies are doing is a wonderful thing....

If you give up they'll give up. You will have to be the voice of reason for the dieters. You know Valentines Day is coming and some will fall off the wagon. Give them a good kick after that day to get them to jump started again, and remind those that are doing it just why they are.

Glenda has a good point. If you give up, we will give up and it's hard enough. I've been having a real rough time, but I have to say, I started again this past Monday and I'm feeling more positive then I felt when I first started in January. Don't stop, Joanne. You always have good things to say and I always like to read what you have to say. I didn't send you anything today because I usually do it from work and I took off today to spend the day with my daughter on her birthday. I'm not going to weigh in now until Friday, but I'm sure I will have good results because I am very into it and I feel good and I'm sure there will be results. Help keep us strong!!!

Thank you for your recent visit and enthusiasm about the valentines. I had a lot of fun making them.

I am not familiar with your "Better Me" group but if it is helping even one person to be encouraged then it is well worth the effort. The shepherd left the ninety nine sheep to go after the one. It was that one who needed the help the most. It is something to consider, making a difference one person at a time. Blessings on you decision.

Please don't stop the "Better Me" posts. They do help. I read your blog almost every day and they're all great. You really make me miss the OC.
Hugs, Susan

I hope you don't stop it Joanne! I think people just get busy and may not have computer time sometimes but they still feel committed and will check in by e-mail or read your post at a later date...look at me! I had an long eye doctor appointment today and tomorrow is a mamogram appt which means hours of waiting. I wish I ahd more hours in the day to do all I want :-)

Hugs, Pat
PS Lost two pounds!

I know it's disheartening, but I hope you won't stop. I admit that I forget to send you an email sometimes. I'm trying to be better about that though. :)
