    I used to suffer terrible panic attacks a few years ago so i'm not just tossing the phrase around. But each week I feel like a panic attack is setting in as I approach the scales. I just get so nervous! And there's always a really big queue, so the wait doesn't help :(

    You are not alone hun, I can get really anxious about the whole thing, the group, the queue and esp. the weigh in. Some weeks are better but most weeks I'm terrified, I also get scared of what other people will think of my weigh in.

    I don't - i can't change it by that point so try not to worry about it - but one girl in my group looks white with fear when she gets near the scales, so i don't think you are alone hun.

    I get really nervous! This is the second time i've been going to class for SW and I'm a nightmare. Always there dead early, just wanting to get it over and done with! Your right tho, by that time there isn't anything I can do to change it!!xx

    All I feel for you guys, I don't really get too worried (weigh myself before I go) maybe that could take some of the anxiousness off? x

    You could talk to your consultant and ask if you can get weighed in private before or after class? I am sure if your consultant knew of your panic attacks they would be more than happy to help you feel comfortable in their group
