    I joined SW back in July, I've been going to a lunch time pop in group but I don't find it useful at all, the consultant would talk to people joining SW, other members go in, hand in their cards to get weighed, and leave. If I have any questions I could wait till my C is free and ask her, but apart from that I don't feel there's any support. Nothing like what the SW magazines advertise.:confused:

    I'm considering not going to the group any more as I feel I don't need / want to pay a fiver just to get weighed (I've got an electrical scale and wii fit at home) - however I wonder if I'm missing out on the group experience as I haven't experienced it yet.

    If you know any group in London that offers proper group experience (IMAGE therapy and all that), please can you let me know?

    Many thanks. :)

    Somewhere in central London / near Canary Wharf please. Yea the ones I've been to are lunch time pop in ones, basically you just pay and weigh. Not worth a fiver I have to say

    I used to go to a great one in Bethnal Green, the group leader was called Toni and I think she did a couple of other groups in East London as well. I know what you mean, the leader makes such a big difference.
