    we went digital last week, i do the scales at one group and do the till on another groups for my consultant lol
    last week went great this week the holder for the pda kept falling over!
    i spent most of the meeting in hysterical laughter
    must admit i do prefer the new system alot quicker and more precise

    What does it mean to go digital, SW wise. We are still on the old system.

    Hi Princess. We are going digital next week. From what I can gather you get a card which gets swiped when you pay and when you weigh. Your weight goes on to the consultants PDA and automatically works out weight loss/club 10 etc and will show at 1 glance who's lost the most weekly/monthly etc.

    So what happens to the info in our books? Do we update that ourselves?

    yes - that's it Suepat. Your card gets swiped at the pay desk and again at the scales. No more sheets for your consultant to drop!

    Jess, the consultant still updates our books we take both with us and she puts the card in and also writes it in your book.

    When I started my class it was digital anyway and it is fab... really quick and easy for both members and the consultant. Considering there are about 60-70 members of my class (split over two times) it makes things so easy.

    I went to another class whilst I was away and they don't have the digital set up. Seemed like a lot of paper faffing!

    one point I'm confused about re the card system - during image therapy what does the consultant refer to if she doesnt have your weight loss on those bits of paper? is she having to sit in front of a laptop during image therapy now? Seems a bit odd if you ask me!

    She uses the pda, it's all on there! She can add notes and bits on it to use as a reminder the following week.

    They have a little hand held thing that they can make notes on, set next weeks mini target and also pop on there how you were feeling about the WI (in the form of smiley faces!)

    The password allows you access to SW members website, you can get syn information by product and also there is a calculator to use if the product isn't listed.
    There are recipes and lots of information on there too which isn't available without the password. It's really useful and I do find I use it a lot for checking syn values.
    The password is only ever given out in class and never shared!

    you take your card to the other group because it's yours to keep.
