The differance your Consultant makes
I rejoined sw last week after a couple of dreadful attempts last year and decided to try a differant class as I didn't settle into the one I went to before. The class last Thursday was very quiet as you can imagine with it still being xmas but it was such a lovely class with only 3 members there and I was so impressed with the consultant, she was lovely and I realised how much of a differance a good consultant makes.
Now I'm not saying the previous consultant I saw was 'bad' but things were done in a very haphazard way, no organization really and no certificates were ever given out and she never got to know any of her members properly.
This new consultant is really organised which means she can welcome new members and sit and chat properly with them, certificates are ready & written out by the time weighing in has finished and last night she really saved me from myself....
I was at my parents for tea and my brother and his family came for the day. By the time I got home I was in tears and ready to dive into a bottle of red and the rest of the choc left from xmas (my sil is evil to me and my brother has no backbone to stand up for me). But I first checked my messages on the phone and I had a lovely message from my consultant asking me how I was doing on the plan, how other things were that we'd spoken about last week and told me to call her at anytime if I needed her.....it really pulled me back from the brink!
Instead of the bottle of wine, I had 1 glass and stayed on plan!
So I am hopeful that this time I can do it and keep it off for good with the right class and the right consultant.
Happy New Year to all the amazing consultants that go the extra mile to keep us on the plan!
