Hmmmm not sure. With the new electronic system I guess this would be much easier as your card will say you're on the countdown x

Yes - with or without being on express weigh - though it makes it easier if both groups are. It may be a little difficult though to go from an express weigh group to a non-express weigh - but non-express weigh groups are becomming fewer and fewer now.

Assuming both groups are express weigh - nothing stopping you.

If your current group is not express weigh - and you don't have your countdown vouchers yourself - then you'll need to request these from the consultant you are moving from.

If you are at an express weigh group and going to a non express weigh group - the two consultants probably need to talk to each other.

What is a countdown course? Is it just cheaper or do you have to have a target? Is there somewhere I can read all the terms and conditions? Things like holidays etc were never explained to me? Also what difference is it as I ticked the 'shift work' box?

If you are a shiftworker - then countdowns are not for you.

Countdowns are there as a commitment to go to group every week - minus any holiday weeks you may have. You pay for 5 and get 6 weeks, or pay for 10 and get 12 weeks - so a small saving there. The idea is that it's an incentive to ensure you go each of those 6/12 weeks and hopefully then an incentive to stick on plan. And it does work - i've done countdowns for all of my 18months - except the last 3 weigh-ins due to being near to target.

Holidays - you're allowed 6 explained absences (holidays/sick) a year where you don't pay - otherwise a missed week should be paid for as back fees (though if you miss more then 2 in succession - it is cheaper to rejoin - but you do loose all your weight loss history).

Being a shift worker means you can't make every group due to shifts and as such shouldn't have this taken from yoru holiday entitlement - hence why countdowns aren't designed for shiftworkers.

Hope that helped.

:thankyou:Thanks everyone for your replies.
Yes, I am on the electronic system (Im sorry but I fail to see whats 'express' about it lol...it takes much longer IMO!!)
Anyway, have told my SW consultant and she has said thats no prob, the group i am moving to is electronic too. So, Im pleased about that coz it means I can move now rather than in 7 weeks time.
I agree, countdowns are the way to go and have done them always....save almost a tenner each time now so cant be sniffed at.
Well done evryone on your fantastic weight losses...keep up the good work....here's to SW! :happy096:
