    No group near me

    Hi
    I belonged to slimming world about this time last year, lost about 1.5 stone (I never found the leader very inspirational unlike many I read about) but plateaued and left. The group has now closed. The nearest one is half an hours drive away and just doesn't fit into my life. I did used to like the rigidity (threat?) of a weekly weigh in. i think it kept me more on target.
    How easy is it to do sw without a group?

    Hi
    I've been doing slimming world from home for 2 weeks now (lost 10lb 1st week) so it can work if you follow it properly. I don't go to group because all the groups in my area are when I'm working, but give it a go. Depends how much you want it? X

    I do it from home using the online service (expensive but necessary to keep me on track as I hate to feel I'm wasting money) and have lost over 3.5st. When I tried to do it totally alone I floundered and rejoined the online. I agree it depends upon how much you want it. I see minimins as my 24 hour group. X

    I go to group but join a challenge on here too as it really helps keep me going.

    I've been looking at possibly moving groups tbh as I get more support here, found good group but it's on a Thursday and I don't want to leav my Wednesday weighers group on here lol!

    I'm exactly the same. I cancelled my online subscription thinking I could go it alone and ended up piling the weight back on.

    I've been going it alone but as the others say, it depends on you.

    For me, it really was about a lifestyle change (and the benefit of weight loss too). I really didn't enjoy the classes when I went before with my mum years ago and am quite busy during the week so it wasn't really for me.

    I am realistic. I probably haven't lost weight as quickly as someone who has gone to class but then again, I do find it harder to lose weight now that I have less to lose.

    I will never, ever fall off the wagon again. There will be times when I will not be 100% on-plan (happens fairly frequently) but as I said, it's a lifestyle change and I am straight back on it at the next meal or next day etc.

    You will know what you're like and if you need a class to succeed. If it's just about the pressure of weighing rather than the class/social element, why don't you and a few friends commit one night a week, all throw in 3 and do your own weigh ins. At the end of the month, use the money to buy something slimmer-friendly and do your own raffle! xx
