    I have joined here because of my recent experience at the body magic sessions, where the consultant grilled me in the group for losing half a pound! I was aghast! I had lost weight and was very pleased about it, but she haranged me asking me what I had eaten with a disbelieving look on her face, then marched over and said fill in this food diary for next week! I was so annoyed I called her, but couldn't face going back this week. It also shattered my confidence and I didn't stick to the plan for some of the week. So I'm here and going to weigh in with you all. Her parting shot on the phone was, well, if you lose weight it's OK, but it would be a different matter if you put on weight!

    oh poor u my consultant is really nice if someone has lost half a lb she makes a fuss and says how well we've done and if we stay the same she says the amount we've lost so far, i've just gone back to s/w classes its a bit out my way but as she is so nice it makes the hassle of getting there worth it, there is a class 2 min walk from my house but i didn't like the consultant much good luck on ur weight loss journey :)

    Thanks Valerie,
    I've visited one other class, but she was like something from the little britain .... so I guess I may try another one! I had just made some friends :mad:
    But yes good luck to us both with further losses!

    My consultant is fab and I think it makes a lot of difference about whether you attend group or not.

    The first group I went to was not good to be honest. I left not believing in plan and not sure what to do. Decided to give another group a go and so glad i did cos she is great. Praises all weekly weight loss, weight loss so far, plus small gains and sts when people have had a difficult week/holiday.

    I would def try another group. I would not have stayed with sw if others were the same as the first one i attended.

    Good luck :rainbow: x

    that was very unprofessional of her! ours cons will usually ask if we knew where we had found the weight from :) and will also ask if there is anything happening the next week that can take us off track and will suggest ways of coping with an event etc.

    Catxx - yes I think I will certainly try another group. I was sorry to not see the people I'd got to know though.
    Twizzle - Yes she certainly was most unprofessional. And I'd I'd LOST weight, not gained it!

    :mad: well i have to say, that is not on, with consultant's like that who needs enemies.

    It makes a huge difference when you have a good consultant I've been put off going to my local group as there is one consultant who seems to monopolise the groups in our area, she runs 5 classes herself and seems to cover everyone else's classes when they are on holiday. I've been to her classes and found she's only interested in you when you are losing weight.
    I have joined a class last night and explained I'd been doing it at home and had lost 5lb but felt I needed the support of a group so I'd joined, straight away in a condesending manner
    'well we all know how to do it, but that's why we come to class for the support and the rest of all the groups in the country 3000+ are proof of that cos if we could do it at home we wouldn't bother'

    :mad: I have to say after that kind of attitude she's on her last chance with me and I will happily change to another class in my area that's a little bit out of my way but I want a supportive consultant not one who thinks she knows everything and treats me like a child, yes she has to have a teaching role but I don't need to be spoken to like that.
    Plus she'll lose whatever payment she gets for having a member if I change classes.

    So if you need to change classes go for it, you deserve to be treated with respect not like summit she's stepped in.
