Not just you, I think so too! Plenty of new starters like me, all looking for support! I only joined a few days before the S+S forum went up but I do see more activity. and the activity in the general VLCD forum has gone right down!
I expect that all diet companies see an increase in business in the new year and as a result of the new forum members we got busy enough to have our own 'big' forum. I dare say that the extra activity / profile doesn't hurt business though!
Agree, it's both busier and if possible (as it always was) even more supportive. I haven't had to post so many questions as someone else asks for me, saving me the trouble and resulting in some excellent answers!
