    Hey boys and girls of the WW world :wave_cry:
    I've been thinking of coming back to what I know, and re starting WW. I followed the plan late 2008, just as the Discover Plan was introduced.
    I find that I'm really struggling on SW, so I've decided to start WW again. I don't really want to join an other group as money's really tight and, if I'm honest, I don't get anything out of it. i don't really think I'm much of a 'joiner' as it were.
    I was just wondering if there are many people here who go it alone? And if so, how do you find it compared to meetings?
    Any help/tips would be great!

    hello miss_stella, I am also going it alone on WW. I got the books off of ebay and have been back on the plan for the past 2 weeks! So far so good. I have found the support, guidance and advice on these forums invaluable!

    Good luck on your weight loss journey!

    WW
    Hi Miss Stella, I've followed WW on and off for many years and have always found it the most successful for me. I've been to classes in the past. The last time I followed WW, myself and a friend decided to follow it together and went once a week to Boots to get weighed. Unfortunately my friend has now moved to another part of country so this time I'm going it alone. Money is a bit tight at the moment so I can't justify the cost of the classes.

    The thing that I've found when I've attended classes is that the whole fact of getting weighed in front of someone has kept me on the straight and narrow! I'm hoping that finding MiniMins will help to motivate me to stick to it. I'm also thinking of putting the money that I would have spent on classes away each week and then treat myself to something nice when I've lost weight.

    Good luck. :)
