I have a question for you lovely folks here. A bit of background for you. About 12 years ago I lost 9 stone with slimming world and thought about becoming a consultant. My marriage broke up (c'est la vie) and I had two young kids on my own with no baby sitter, so I ditched the idea of becoming a consultant. Fast forward to today. My eldest to kids are grown up and I have a 3 year old. A steady, happy marriage and a lot of weight back on. I've been on the SW plan since 1st October and have lost 12 pounds. My motivation is high but I have another 6 stone to lose before I'm at a 'comfortable' weight and more than that to get to my ideal target weight. (probably another 3 stone) My consultant approached me and said that she thinks I would make a great consultant for various reasons. There is an opportunities night coming up next week. I don't know whether to go or not. I still have a LOOOONG way to go on my weight loss. How would you feel walking into a slimming world class where the consultant is over-weight? What you don't know at that point is that she is also following the plan and losing weight successfully, until she tells you. Would it put you off? Would you think OMG, how can she be a consultant looking like that? Or would it have a reverse effect on you in that you think great, someone who knows what it's like and it's great that she's 'with us' on the plan? I really would appreciate VERY HONEST answers from you. I'm sure I could do the job, I think I am confident enough, or I would be in this situation because we're all in the same boat, to stand up there in front of everyone, and I really think I'd give it as much as I possibly can to help these other people lose weight on the plan. I just can't get past the thought of a new member walking in and seeing a 'large' lady running the class, or how members would feel with a larger lady running the class. I know this would only be a short term thing because this time next year there will be a lot less of me I'm THAT determined to get the weight off and keep it off this time. On the positive side, it helps keep me on track too. Like I said, I'd really appreciate your honest opinions. Do I go for it now or wait until I'm nearer target?
