Just wondering why people...

#1
Just wondering why people dont stay to class?

I didnt stay to class last night as had to get back to the baby as my OH was going training but normally i do i enjoy staying and was gutted i couldnt stay last night.

But there's 60 people that attend my class for WI and only 10 stay normally and its more or less the same people.

Is this because it gets boreing after a while or is it just because they have other things on?

I feel like im getting my moneys worth when i stay and like the encouragement from others and the tips from the SWC.

The only reasons I don't stay is if I don't feel well (always try to WI at least as it keeps me on track) or I have to do something else urgently though I do try not to make arrangements for Tuesday nights.

A lot of people like to just weigh and go, I think it's because group can sometimes 'drag on' for quite a long time.

I always stay, firstly like you I like to feel as though I'm getting value for money :D, but mainly I learn so much from the group every week, and it's a great chance to have a moan if you're having a bad week to a room full of people who are in the same boat, I always come away full of ideas and positivity.

I also want to stick around in case I'm due a sticker :p

And I'm not ashamed to say I LOVE THE CLAPPING! :D:D:D

We have lots of people who don't stay, I'd say 30 leave and 20 stay and it's the same people who stay every week.
Those who stay lose more and lose consistantly and it SW have stats to prove that you are less likely to reach target if you don't stay to group.
I only ever go if I have something on and as I don't make any arrangements for a Tuesday this hardly ever happens, it's just when it's parents evening for example.

Reasons people don't stay to my group (and I hear them all as I weight them)

I've been at work all day and I'm tired
I want my tea
I've got the kids
I've gained/STS
I'm going out (every Tuesday????)
I don't like Image Therapy
I don't need to learn anything or need any help

There are many more but these are the most common ones, esp I've been at work and I want my tea!

Haha! That is fantastic, perhaps a little too much :D I'd love to see the grumpy ladies in my group clapping teddy bears!

I admit that there are times when I think; i've had a rubbish day at work, i'm hungry and I just want to go home but so far I have stayed. When I joined previously I never used to stay and eventually reached a point (when I was almost at target) where I decided I was wasting my money by paying to get weighed and then going home so I stopped going altogether. BIG MISTAKE and not one I want to make again.

I love the clapping too!!! I used to stay to every session now as time has gone on... I'm afraid I dont always... the group I go to has got huge recently... about 40 people stay somethimes and yes I hate to day - it does tend to draaaaaaag on sometimes

That's the only problem, mine should finish at 6.45 and it always always goes on until 7pm and the last few people are rushed through, so to speak. I feel a bit sorry for them really as they don't get the focus that others who weigh earlier get.

At first I loved staying to group but as the weeks went on I noticed the group leader ran out of ideas and started repeating herself. Plus me and my mum always thought she didn't really understand the plan or answer our questions very well.
 
#20
I stay but, I don't look forward to it. I hate being the centre of attention, even if it's for a good reason! I lost 2 pounds this week and everyone was happy for me and the C asked how it went and I just felt like crawling into a hole and crying.
But then, I'm weird lol.
Plus I kinda get the feeling I'm back at school, in a room with a teacher who talks slowly and pupils who aren't my friends :(
