    I will start the thread off with just a couple of reasons:
    I love the way we spend ages talking about our toilet habits (or lack of them!),

    I also love the fact that we don't have to spend a fiver just to sit round waiting whilst everyone gets weighed, then have to wait for the raffle(in which the prize is some slimming club product that never sold well) to be drawn and then finally sit through the consultants chat just thinking" hurry up I'm starving and want my tea-let me out of here!".

    I could go on and on, but thought I'd give everyone else a chance to contribute x

    Its always open, no having to wait to a one hour a week time that invariably never suits you

    For me it's because of the fast results, and you can completely take food out of your diet to avoid temptation and there are no risks to you health in doing so :)

    Because you don't treat yourself to the fish and chip supper after weigh-in "because you did well" at losing a lb!

    Because everybody knows how you feel lol x

    Because noone knows who I am, I can be honest and open without embarrassment.

    Because its written - my thoughts are recorded making it easier to refer back to how I was feeling when........

    Because its written, it'll give me a log of my thought, feelings, successes and struggles. A great record to read when I hit goal to help me maintain.

    The people are brilliant.

    It's open 24hours a day!

    Some great posts, thanks ladies, Kimmie I know so many people that treat themselves to a chippie tea after weigh in,it made me chuckle.

    Another reason I like Minimins(and I hope I won't offend anyone here) is that I often find the slimming group full of women who are under BMI 25 wanting to lose half a stone,quite disheartening when like myself you're in it for the long haul and think blimey if I looked like them I'd consider myself very slim!
    Nice to chat to people who understand the emotions that come with being way up there on the BMI scale........hope this post doesn't make me sound slimmest!

    That's so true - not not to sound too stalkerish... I'm about halfway through your diary and although I've never commented (I don't want to go the end page and ruin the ending lol) you're truely an inspiration to me, every time I've thought about... Ooh I'll just have an ss+ day, I thought about your journey and just chugged down some water.

    I too love how this site is 24 hours and how everyones so honest!! Makes me feel like I'm not the only crazy one :)
    I also love how everyone is so supportive, they'll tell you step away from the cake over and over again but if you do succumb then theyll never judge

    But best of all I get to share my love of food porn ;)

    er cos you can just ramble on and on and no one seems to mind, plus its not cold like those horrible musty cold church halls and community centers ..plus other people also ramble on and on and its good reading through in the mornings and having a laugh and a chuckle and an 'oh my God I like that too'

    But NO ONE EVER LAUGHS if you fall off your program they just welcome you back with hugs and encouragement.AND NO ONE JUDGES. You could have a gazzillion pounds to lose or just 10, its all the same welcoming place.

    I love the way people are far more open and you find out far more about the real people on here than any slimming club !!

    I love the way I can come one here anytime , wearing anything ( or nothing if I wish ) and no one judges

    I love the way there is always someone here who knows the answer to someones questions

    I love the way we can all help each other stay on track and if we dont .. we help each other back on that wagon :)
