Just a little thankyou!

Just wanted to say how much this site helps me and all the lovely people on here!! :-)

Its so helpful as the support is incredible and its so nice to have the support without being made to feel guilty! (having been to loads of diet club meetings before I often used to come away feeling worse than when i went in!) whereas on here it is amazing to have so many people who are in the same boat and to be able to help each other with advice and motivation tips.

its a great place to be!! :-)

Oh I agree Mm and I'm so pleased you've posted this thread, because now I can apologise for not being able to reply to you on the weigh-in thread, unfortunately, I'm frozen out of the morning thread now.

Can you get 4G on your internet dongle Moreless? I'm wondering if the problem isn't just that you're working from a dongle, which I am too, but that you're in a non-4G area? I think the site basically needs to be better adapted to be accessed from mobile networks (ALL types of mobile networks) :(

No we can't get 4G here! :(

I think that could be it. Because my phone is 3G and completely crashes when I try to open a long post. But my laptop works off 4G and is mostly fine. There are optimisers and things that you can get to help with 3G (maybe ask your network provider, O2 or whatever about that), but maybe shorter threads are the way forward, if we can manage them... *or a FIX from the lovely guys in IT please :) *

How short is short though, I started to struggle before 9am today!

We've tried to get assistance from every provider you can think of. I'm not very technical, but in an area where there's no mains water, no mains drainage, no mains gas, no broadband and overhead electricity lines, , 4G doesn't seem to be a high priority :D

Hmph. That sounds difficult! Sounds like they need a longer priority list :)

We really are out in the sticks and there aren't enough of us for it to be of any concern to them :)

It's all down to the IT team, I fear :)

Hi Trafford it makes such a huge difference doesn`t it having great people to chat with and I am even getting used to these smilies which is incredible as my family normally despair over my lack of technical skills!

I am just showing off now ;-) :-) ;-)
