Hi everyone,

Basically I am asking for help and support from you lovely people. I want to lose weight and looking at slimming world it seems the best.

However, I cant afford the weekly fees so I am attempting it alone. I have the general gist of it - but I am really worried that I will fall off the wagon!

Any advise to get me started?????

Well if you fall off the wagon just forgive yourself and get back on it! Then fasten your seatbelt. Seriously it makes a big difference to be able to jump back on the wagon and keep going, thats what'll get you there in the end - good luck :)

If you've not got the books I'd recommend going to at least one class they you can get the book & more of an understanding of how SW works.

Otherwise take a look at the threads you'll get lots of help there. If there is anything you're not sure about just ask:D

Welcome aboard!!

I don't go to class either - time and money restrictions unfortunately. (My gym costs £9 a week and I - personally- feel I get more out of that, and can afford that, but not SW and the Gym).

I do think that it's good to have the books though, and am considering rejoining just to get the new books at some point when I can afford it this month. Will see what offers they have.

Anyway - good luck. This forum is really supportive, so come here often to keep motivated and get advice and ideas.

Please don't take this as me saying you should pay the money and go to the groups each week, I know it's each to their own and everyone has their own specific circumstances. However, I sat down and thought that with the prepacked sandwich and cup of coffee I might buy more than once a week, I could afford to go if I cut them out. I think the little things we buy each day/week can easily mount up to £4.95! It definately can with me haha oops
