    Hi folks,

    Just found this site and reading all your posts gives me the encouragement I need to hopefully change my life...and my families lives. We are all by our BMI morbidly obese and need to get this weight off. My son who is around 25 stone will not join SW with us, says that men don,t go!! Can anyone help me persuade him>

    Thanks

    Helen

    Hi Helen great to hear you are gonna turn your life around - stick with is and you will not regret it and the support on this site is unbelievable! As for your son, their are some men that go to group but it is true they are the minority, however they usually do really well!

    Obviously going to group and getting that support would be the best but it is not the end of the world. My husband was 18st and needed to loose some weight, he wouldn't join up with me either. So I sorted out his SW meals and he had fruit for snacks while at work. He lost 2 stone in 2 months!

    Good luck and let us know how you get on

    hi helen, i don't go to classes either, no time or inclination, but i have lost over 40 pounds doing it from home. Why not get your son to join SW online, but as a SW class member i think u get free access to the website anyway, whether that's full access, I have no idea.
    Perhaps once you start dishing SW meals and he sees your success then he will be more inclined to join in. The SW magazine and website usually features male dieters as well which may inspire him.
    good luck with your weight loss journey. Plenty of inspiration to be found on these boards too.
