    Did you get a leaflet?

    Having helped a consultant friend of mine with her leaflet deliveries a few weeks ago, I was wondering whether it was really worth all that effort.

    I don't know if most people know this, but consultants have to, as part of their contract with SW, have leaflets printed with their class details which have to be delivered to houses in their area. SW prints them, the consultants pay for them, and it's up to them to do the delivering.

    My friend had 4,000 leaflets to deliver!

    I would like to know if any of you went to a class because of a leaflet that came through the door?

    Nope, the reason I joined class was because my sister went and had lost weight, I'd never heard of SW before that.

    I've never had a leaflet. I'd definitely have noticed because I'm OCD about recycling junk mail, lol. There are a few classes close by though, one just round the corner. I joined because a friend had done SW.

    I'm another one who's never had a leaflet even though there are several classes close by. I've sometimes though it odd and wonder if the surrounding houses are leafletted but our block of 12 flats is missed out because of the external security door.

    There are three SW groups near me and I have never had any leaflets through the door! I joined because a friend had lost a lot of weight and was quite evangelical about her group!

    I've never had a leaflet ever and there are 3 or 4 SW groups in my area - one of which is just over the road from my house!

    I had never heard of SW until my cousin lost a lot of weight on it for her wedding a few years back. That's what made me join.

    I must be in the minority, I get several leaflets from different groups through my letter box. And I did join because of one, not the group advertised but it made me look online and find the one I joined eventually x
