    I did Slimming World last year until around September as the times of the group in my area just didn't suit. So i'm trying to be strong and going it alone!! :confused: Needless to say i am nervous about beginning to follow SW again without the group..

    However trying to be positive and focus in on the one thing i want more than anything to lose 2 stone!!

    Has anyone else followed SW without anttending groups and been successful??

    why are the groups no good for you?
    to early? too late? wrong days etc?

    have you checked on the website to see if there are other groups at different times and locations?

    failing all of that, might be worth a word to one of the local C's about possibly starting another group that's convenient.. might be a lot more that prefer your slot...

    I live in quite a rural area so we have it once a week, and due to my work and different shifts i haven't really been successful at attending. Tried to discuss different time with previous leader but was told there was no demand for another time.. :(

    but I am determined once again .. so with a new year i have renewed hope that I will get the 2 stone off before summer..
    Good luck Safia, i believe that without the fear of the not attending a group and condeming ourselves to failure before we have began, we can do it!! :)

    I think as long as you understand the basics of SW, with all the support on here, you'll be fine. I go to group myself, but that's more to do with the fact I only moved to Essex 6 months ago so it's good to meet people. But there are plenty of people on here that do it on their own so you should always be able to find out all the info you need.

    Good luck! xxx

    Hi Toocurvy

    I don't go to group. If you are motivated enough you will stay on track. I weigh on a Sunday and we have a great, supportive, group here of Sunday weighers. We all weigh at home so have something in common. Join us if you would like to make that your weigh day :)

    Ive been doing it alone and ive lost 30lbs since the start of september :)

    I bought some books and the basic instructions off ebay (some ppl photocopy there packs from class and sell them on ebay for a couple of quid!) And then came on here...its an absolute lifeline!!

    I weigh myself every monday and so far ive stuck to it well except for a little blip on new years eve and xmas day :)

    Good luck! xxx

    Hi
    I'm to going it alone as of today. I joined a group last year and to be really honest I didn't like it one bit, I thought the leader came across as she really couldn't be bothered and I ended up going just to collect all the books I needed to get my head around the diet. I do love the sw diet tho and after a stone loss before Christmas and then a few weeks off I'm excited to be back on it today and happy not to have to attend class!!

    Good luck to u and hope to see u round here xx

    This is the link to the Sunday weighers thread. You will be made very welcome. We don't bite...much.

    http://www.minimins.com/slimming-world-weekly-weigh/133037-sunday-weighers-only-me.html

    We just weigh on a Sunday morning and report our results on the thread. We post midweek too for a bit of support and gossip.

    We have a mini challenge at the moment to stay 100% every day for the whole of January. There are no weight targets, just a wee challenge to help focus after the holidays. It is not compulsory.

    I'm going it alone too. I swear this forum is amazing! I've only been posting for 4 days and I love it, the support is amazing and imo much better than group as it's accessible 24/7.

    I go it alone too. I do make sure I tell someone my weekly result so I have someone "to answer to". So my mum gets a text every monday morning and then I always take part in a challenge on here which helps keep me on track.

    If you are in the right frame of mind it can be done. Some people swear by group but its just not for me and I get on fine without it

    Good luck

    hey everyone. im going it alone aswell. joined sw last year n lost nearly 3 stone. stopped going just before my holiday in august as my consultant left n didnt like the new one much. all i used to do tho was get weighed and leave as staying for group wasnt for me. only put on a few lb since then so i think once you have the basics of slimming world they are with you for good. given myself a kick up the bum and am gettin bak on track tho as i have just over a stone n half 2 lose b4 may. good luck to everyone who is goin it alone tho with the support on here i dont think it will feel like ur doing it on ur own :) x

    I tried it on my own, but I lack the moral fibre to do it! I need to go to class, and stay to the talk.

    Good luck!

    im going it alone too, my group isnt a very convenient time. me and my partner are doing the diet together which makes it alot easier. 2 other girls at work are on diets too so were all supporting each other.
    good luck with your weight loss journey x

    Hi, I have started again today and I'm going it alone. I am hoping that with the support from here I should't be too bad. I now have access to the site on my phone so will be able to se the site a lot more and I intend on keeping my diary up to date on here also. I weighed myself tonight and I am 11 stone 8. I want to get to 10 stone at least. So a Tuesday is gonna be my weigh in day. X
