Hi I belonged to slimming world about this time last year, lost about 1.5 stone (I never found the leader very inspirational unlike many I read about) but plateaued and left. The group has now closed. The nearest one is half an hours drive away and just doesn't fit into my life. I did used to like the rigidity (threat?) of a weekly weigh in. i think it kept me more on target. How easy is it to do sw without a group?
