I finally got fed up with my weight before Christmas and decided to visit my GP to ask if she would recommend mw for some Slimminh World vouchers for 12 weeks of free slimming.
I started goingas soon as I received them despite it being just before xmas.
No time like the present! I lost 1/2 stone by Christmas and got my award which i was quite chuffed about. Then the rot started to set in which was not my fayult. Apparently the next 2 weeks I put on despite following the plan to theletter. The third week when I went in the consultant said that she was sorry but as she had been away for 2 weeks the other consultants scales had been used which meant that everyone just about in the group had put on!!
I went this week and had lost 2 llbs again which is a relief, but I was not impressed with the 'supposed' weight gains the previous 2 times. it could have made me think it wasn't worth it and stop doing it!
Also, the group is on the large side and I know they get commission on the numbers attending, but barring the first 2 weeks i haven't stayed to group since as its really boring (and not uplifting!) sitting listening to everyones losses or gains. I now go early to beat the long queues for paying and weighing and then go home. i am quite a strong person and can motivate myself so I will succeed.
I have done SW before many years ago and with great success. That was the best group I have ever attended. The consultant had a different topic each week which she made very interesting and made you want to stay. She also had a chap come in once a fortnight and cook SW meals up rigt in front of us for us to try out. Now THAT is what I call image therapy! We always went away totally motivated for the next week. Something needs to be done to sort out the long queues for paying and then weighing, plus the consultants need to be doing more than juust standing there reading out weight losses and gains. There is NO motivation in that at all!
