    The title says it all really. I'm really nervous about going and just want to know what will happen? Also, how long do they last roughly?

    Thanks!

    You'll go in and probably do all your paperwork with a 'helper' as the leader will be weighing. Then you'll weigh privately with the leader to get your starting weight. Most leaders then run class as normal then do a 'new members talk' after class, so you will be there a little longer the first time. My meeting usually lasts an hour, so maybe another 15mins on top of that for your new member talk?

    Different leaders may do it differently though so the best thing to do is ask when you get there what will happen!

    Don't worry though - I've been to 2 different WW classes and everyone has always been SOOOO friendly. Everyone is there because they want to lose weight, regardless of how much they have to lose, so everyone's in the same boat. I hope you really enjoy your meeting. x

    I'm in the Valleys near Caerphilly, so not too far from you! You have done so well on CD so far, congratulations! I bet you're so pleased with your loss.

    Not far at all!

    Thanks, I am pleased and glad it gave me a good head start. I just couldn't stay on it any more. I've already lost all my weight on CD once and gained it all back and more so this time, I thought I'd get a good start and then lose the rest more slowly.

    I feel 'normal' again now I am eating! x

    Hi,
    I had my first meeting yesterday, started at 10am but very busy, I arrived at 10.15am as been to one before and the worst bit I found was waiting in a long queue (think I spelt that wrong) to be weighed. But it's good, everyone nice, leader made me feel welcome and it's interesting as they tell you the top weight losses for that week. You'll get a folder thing and some booklets. They have stuff for sale like WW bars and books, trackers, points calculaters. If you get any bars the choc orange ones are bloody lovely!:)

    Good luck
