    I am joining a new local group tomorrow.

    The last group I attended felt like an OAP coffee morning, with the same old ladies losing and gaining the same 4lbs and sniggering about it. I swear the consultant just saw them as "good business" as she never offered any real advice or support to them. They dominated IT and quite frankly it got on my nerves. The Consultant once told me the reason I wasn't losing weight was cos I ate too much free food - without so much as looking at my diaries. Saying "we can't all eat mountains of pasta and lose weight". What??? I thought that was the point?

    Anyhoo, she is no longer a consultant and this is a new fresh group that only opened a few months back so am hoping to find it refreshingly good! Cos I think having a good consultant makes all the difference.

    I am going alone and although I know what to expect I am still nervous, but looking forward to it.

    Its so nice to hear that that old consultant and the 'oap coffe morning vibe' (hehehe) didnt put your off sw for life, cause i can tell you now, if that'd been my first expierance, i wouldnt hav returned and would have tarred all consultants with the same brush.


    good luck with your new group, i hope it serves you well. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Thanks for all your replies. Am still looking forward to it. Having read "the good, the bad..." thread I know there are some good consultants out there so fingers crossed I got one this time.

    Will post later about how I get on.

    Good Luck pinkyfluff, hope you get a good consultant this time as Im sure it must be so demotivating to have a bad one.
