I started trying to lose weight on my own after New Year by eating sensibly and cutting out alcohol, and lost 10lbs in January. I then 'fell off the wagon' a in February - partly due to a couple of trips away for work, partly because I just let things slide - and put 2lbs back on. In an attempt to get things back on track I rejoined a SW group last week and started posting on here. I've had a really good week and lost 3lbs - I'm feeling very motivated and determined at the moment... BUT... I have to admit I really don't like group!! The consultant is really nice and does her best, but it is just painful. There are toddlers running about making a noise, people chatting among themselves while the consultant is trying to talk to individuals, and endless clapping with very little else. I don't know whether it is just this group, but it is not at all how I remembered SW group from when i used to go years ago. I got up and slipped out half way through because I couldn't stand it any more. So what I am wondering is, do I a. give it a chance, keep going and hope that it has just been a couple of bad weeks. b. look for a different group - there are a couple of other options, but this one is at the most convenient time for me. c. just weigh and go d. stop going altogether, save my money and use my books to do this at home on my own, using this lovely site for support? I'm also going to be away for most of April and have worked out that I won't be able to get to group at all that month. To be honest I'm leaning towards going it alone, but I don't want to spoil things when they are going so well at the moment. Any thoughts?
