So this is my second time around.
I attended a sw group near my work place for about 3 months. At first it was great but then I started struggling. Started feeling quite tired and hungry all the time and really unmotivated with the group. At first I put it down to everyone in my group being in a completely different situation to me (I'm 26): They where all either a lot older or had children in school. It became apparently to me that it wasn't just that, there were things with my group that I didn't like such as endless discussions on Smash, let alone my consultant constantly forgetting I am a veggie.
When it came to my partner and I finally finding our own place, I was so down with slimming I decided not to find a new group.
Over a drink I explained to a friend (really sucessful sw member) why I wasn't returning. She said her group was completely different and I should try again.
So things have settled down and I went along to a group last night. Tbh, I didn't think anything would change my mind but given a rather epic 'I hate my body' melt down my boyfriend convinced me to try again, to get a bit more confidence.
One of the first things the new consulant asked was if I was a veggie. She recommended the Green plan, something I'd heard of but thought sw didn't do anymore because extra easy was better. She didn't have chance to go over it completely but asked me to call her if there are any issues. AND she didn't mention Smash once!
I'm already feeling so much more positive. Turns out my friend has been on green the whole time AND it's great for veggies.
Proper excited to get on plan and start feeling slimmer. I know from last time that my confidence shoots through the roof after a loss so I'm super excited.
