Before I carry on with this post, let me just make it absolutely clear that I'm not here to offend anyone, and I mean that! Just playing devil's advocate I think. I joined SW at the end of January and generally I'm really pleased. I've had a few struggles for various reasons but I'm doing OK and this site has been a godsend, not only for lots of good ideas and for answering queries, but because I've read such amazing stories from people who have done so well and it's truly inspirational and has kept me going. Now I'm almost 2 months into the plan, I even feel a bit confident in answering posts when people post up questions. I'm a full time carer for my elderly Dad. When my Mum passed away almost 9 years ago I had to give up a well paid and rewarding career to care for my Dad. Now that all my savings have been used making my mortage payments, gas, electric etc. I have to claim Carer's Allowance which is topped up by a bit of Income Support, so my income is a little over £90 per week. So all my bills have to be paid out of that. So things are a little tight to say the least! But as I was determined that I HAD to lose weight and seemed unable to do it by myself, so I juggled my finances and my budget about so that I could afford to go to SW. I'm sure there are plenty of people on this site who have to live on a very low income, just the same as I do. When I was looking on here yesterday, I was struck by the number of people who are doing SW themselves from home (that is, not going to a group or paying to do it online) - and coming on here to try & understand the plan and get their queries answered. I actually think that's a bit of a cheek. It's using the genuine SW members on here as unpaid SW consultants - so we pay to follow the SW plan and then hand out all the information to others who pay nothing. Am I alone in thinking like this? Maybe I've just woken up today with a "I hate the world" mood! It just feels a bit unfair to me, but maybe you'll all tell me I'm being a bit mean. Really interested to hear others opinions.
