    Hi All,

    Well we arrived in Canada a few weeks ago. I miss the UK!! Nevermind, I'm sure I'll soon settled.

    So I joined WW last week to try and meet people and find a group. Boy.....the group is so different to SW. I miss image therapy!!

    Gave WW a go for a few days and whilst I liked being able to eat anything, I really missed the freedom of SW's free foods so I've decided to come back to SW and just go to WW to get weighed and be accountable. I think SW just suits me better and is something I can sustain.

    Hope everyone is well! I'll probably drive everyone mad coming on here to ask about syns in things as I no longer have online access!!

    xx

    Thanks hun! It's good to be back. I've put on 25lb since my lowest SW weigh-in and can't wait to get that back off! How are you?

    Great to hear from you Stacey, missed you about the place:grouphugg:

    There is no place like home...but I am sure in time Canada will begin to feel like home.

    WW class is very different to the SW Image Therapy... but as you say it is good to get weighed each week and be accountable and also it will help you settle in and make new friends.

    Wishing you all the best in your new home.

    Hi Stacey -
    Where abouts in Canada are you? - it's a big place! I have a friend who goes to WW in Ottawa. You'll be saying "oot and aboot" in no time! Good luck back on SW.

    ah,, stacey! i'v missed you!- I hope you settle into your new home soon enough.

    Good on you for joining your local ww group, even if ww isnt for you its great your making the effort to meet people.

    Dont worry about those pesky lbs, you can get them back off again and you know it.

    Who knows, you may be the first canadian sw consultant.
