Hi, my name's Cheryl and I go to my local weekly meeting. Ive been going since last June & and really struggling, Ive lost about 18lbs so far, I had lost more but have put some back on I really feel that my meetings arent that good, over half the members dont stay. The leader, who is temp but has been with us 6 months, weighs until i get there, then she talks to newbies whilst I finish the weighing. The talk goes on for longer than the weighing so we are sat waiting for her & people tend to get bored & go. She then goes round the group, little chats along the way which are all very similar each week, does the raffle then its all done. I have mentioned that previous leaders did games, recipes, talks etc & her rely was that she does that sort of thing in her other groups Im not sure if its because they are her groups & shes meant to be temp at ours ?? I really feel(&so do a lot of other members) that we should walk out feeling positive but at the moment its just like a waste of our time. I think this is why i am in stale mate & not losing and dont feel i can do it x What happens at your meetings?
