    Does anyone else keep it to themselves?

    I'm just wondering if anyone else keeps their SW journey to themselves.
    I'm on week 2 & I've only told my husband & one of my friends that I've joined SW. Previous experience has had me being bombarded with people (friends & family) constantly asking "how's the diet?", "should you be eating that?", "are you ALLOWED that?". It all gets a bit much to listen to so I thought I'd keep it to myself to avoid the questions.
    I am aware that this does present its other issues, I'm just hoping that I can train myself to make the right choices when out with friends & not succumb to temptation.
    How does anyone else deal with this?
    Thank you

    I certainly keep it to myself. But then I keep most things to myself. Telling other people things only gives them the opportunity to interfere!

    I keep it to myself purely because I know I'll get the usual "why are you eating chocolate and crisps if you're on a diet?" comments. Not worth the hassle lol x

    My mum knows because we're sort of doing it together (we live 35 miles apart so support each other over the phone), my friends and colleagues know I'm trying to eat healthier, but they don't know I'm doing SW

    ive told as many ppl who will listen so im more likely to keep at it rather then face the embarrassment of telling them ive failed...

    as for ppl sayin 'are u allowed that' (mostly my husband lol) i tell him that hes seen the weight coming off so i know what im doing, and what im doing is working.

    i think its up to u whether or not u tell ppl or whether u can say to the ppl u tell that yes take an intrest but please dont harrass me about it... each of us has different ways of dealing with dieting - i no sw isnt a diet as such but until i get to target to me its a diet

    I kind of wish I did this with work, gets on your nerves on a Thursday morning (I weigh on Wednesday Eve) and everyone is asking how much you've lost. Especially this last couple of stone which has taken a bit longer than the first lot! And then if someone brings any sweets or biscuits in they are all 'oh I won't even ask you' well what if I did want one?! All gets a bit overwhelming, and I sometimes wish I'd just kept it to myself

    My boyfriend (who I live with), my mum and one friend - all the people who know at the moment and that's how it will stay for as long as possible. I just couldn't bear the pressure of people knowing that I'm trying to change myself, again. Plus, all my friends are naturally skinny and tend not to understand when I mention weight issues!

    The first time around I did tell a few people in work as they were doing Sw or ww too, but then I fell off the wagon and had to face these same people. This time I was keeping it on the down low but I'm pleased with my loss so far and I'm getting compliments so I am a bit more forth coming. When it comes to treats I cut them off before there is an issue, controlling my syns at home turns out I have more will power than I thought.

    I just told my husband and mum to start with and then as people noticed I told them. I think I don't want the not again comments! Now I tell anyone who listens I am a bit of a sw bore!

    I did at first but it got to the point where people were noticing and asking so I told them. It was funny because even people at work who I didn't know but had seen me around started to comment and ask what I was doing . That felt a bit odd at first lol

    I eventually told everyone around me. I'm not particularly bothered by this, I find it quite amusing when we are out for dinner (for example) with friends and they say "how can you possibly be eating that and still lose weight?".
    Gives me a chuckle!
