    Hi guys I'm joining my local slimming world class tomorrow- I feel like I have a good idea of how the plans works now thanks to this forum :) just a few questions if anyone could be kind enough to answer (sorry some are a bit stupid lol)

    Firstly can you pay monthly? Do you pay to join (and how much is it)?
    Does the consultant go through the plans with you on your first day?
    When do you sort out a target weight? (I went to rosemary Conley before having baby and we never set a goal- So when my mum reached hers it wasn't acknowledged/ celebrated!)

    Oh someone I know who goes mentioned in passing something about everyone bringing in something and then one person can win it? I wasn't sure what she meant and didn't have time to ask lol

    Thanks in advance :)

    I tend to buy 12 weeks in one go; works out the same as paying for 10 classes so £49.50 - I think the 6 week passes are £24.75! x

    Firstly can you pay monthly? Do you pay to join (and how much is it)?
    Your first week, you pay a joining fee and that's it (either £10 or £15) after that you pay weekly £5, or you can pay for 6 weeks at once and get 1 week free, or pay for 12 weeks together and get 2 weeks free.
    Does the consultant go through the plans with you on your first day?
    When you first arrive you will egt a one-to-one session with your consultant who will walk you through the plans and give you all the info. This takes about 30 mins, then you will get to see the imagine therapy sessions, befiore getting yourself weighed in (weigh ins are done in secret)
    When do you sort out a target weight? (I went to rosemary Conley before having baby and we never set a goal- So when my mum reached hers it wasn't acknowledged/ celebrated!)
    You can set a target at any point, i'd advise waiting a couple of weeks, to see how comfortable you are with the plans and the speed of your weight loss.

    Oh someone I know who goes mentioned in passing something about everyone bringing in something and then one person can win it? I wasn't sure what she meant and didn't have time to ask lol
    Everyone is supposed to bring in a either a superfree or similar item, usually people bring fruit, yoghurts or Hi-Fi bars, with the resulting hamper going to the Slimmer Of The Week. It is not compulsory, so don't worry about it your first week.

    Just one last word of caution/warning/info... As far as I am aware NO class takes credit/debit cards, so you'll either need to take cash or a cheque to pay!!!!

    Noooo Bella is a normal mag. Like Woman's Way or what have you. It normally has a story on the front involving (in no particular order)

    one of the Loose Women (in marriage/booze/slimming crisis)
    Holly Willoughby thinking that Christine Bleakly is out to get her
    Lorraine Kelly (being her fab place)


    I am probably showing my age...
