    You could join as an online member but to be honest your best bet would be to go along to group, get the books and the consultant introduction. Sw is so different to WW some people really struggle at first with the freedom of eating without weighing and measuring. So give yourself the best start rather than try and get by on limited info. BUt check out the thread for newbies in the sticky section above for a basic rundown of how it work

    As said before the best thing you can do if you dont want to attend a class is to join and go once - get the plan explained in the new member talk and get all of the literature. You dont have to go again if you dont want to. You'll find it really hard without having it explained properly and having the books. Even though its the easiest healthy eating plan in the world its still something you have to get your head around. It took me about 6 months to get points out of my head and I went to sw classes! But the food freedom is so worth it

    Yes, definitely good advice from Jeanette and Patchwork Puss. I've done both (currently doing it from home) but wouldn't have understood it properly without, at least, an initial explanation from a consultant, and the books, of course. The support and ideas from this group is totally amazing too! Wish I'd known about it years ago. Good luck with whatever you decide on, Smirky. You definitely won't regret doing SW, once you can get your head round it!
