Decided to bite the bullet

I was nervous too. I stood outside like a plonker for ages before I went in.
everyone was lovely and I felt very comfortable and at ease.
Youll be fine, just remember everyone that is there started somewhere, they were all in the position you're in now.
if anything, they'll probably be thinking "good for you" because they know how hard it is to walk into a group of people-strangers- and say, actually I'm not happy with myself and I want to change. It takes a lot of courage and I know you can do it! :)

Good Luck :) You will be fine and the groups are really good at keeping people motivated especially when you are first getting to grips with the plan!

go when it opens and most wont even realize someone else has walked in, everyone is usually chatting or queuing to pay and weight.

It is crazy! I find the extra easy is the easiest. Family wise too as i like my meat with potatoes etc.
1 main huge tip. Use ALL your syns. SO many people think if they cut back or dont have them then their losses become better... Well look at this way, if you did that your more likely to relaps as your restricting yourself too much AND when weight loss does slow down you have no syns to cut back on to help boost yourself if this did happen to you..

:)

Welcome & Enjoy your first week eating tons of food and thinking your not going to lose anything.. I bet you do have a great 1st weigh in :) x

Thanks Jess! Already worried about weigh in on Thursday lol. Just hard to get your head round! I had Chinese last night (black bean within syns) and I still felt abit guilty! Think it is the fear of somebody else weighing me lol but it's the fear I need to motivate me.
Thanks for telling me about the syns thing, I had used 12 yesterday and worried should I have kept it u see 10! Easter seems a crazy time to join but I think If I hadn't I would have used it as an excuse to binge all week xx

I still feel guilty when using syns on takeaways because what diet can you seriously have them on!! lol. Yes use them all, too many new members think cutting syns will better them but it may for week or so but my eyes you mess up more on the diet :/
Usually its the same person who weighs you, it is in our group. 2 ladies do the pay and weigh and may swap some weeks but atleast its not someone different everytime

Good luck, i look forward to hearing your result xx
