I can haz cake?
I went by myself. I didn't tell anyone except hubby for ages. The good thing about SW is that no-one ever can really tell you are on a diet! It was only when people started to notice I was losing weight that I said I was on SW. I just didn't want to admit that I had a problem (although I clearly did!!)
I remember when I first thought... right I've got to deal with this. I think I was about 18. Stepped on the scales once (something I rarely did at the time) and was shocked to see 17 st 7. I was so horrified... I didn't go to a sw class at the time as it wasn't big here in northern ireland until recently... I went to a weightwatchers class. Although I found it welcoming, I found there was more skinny people there than there was fat people, and nobody really liked to admit to eating food =P Although its a good diet in its ways, I wasn't very good at sticking to it long term and the change to propoints was really the kick I needed to move to sw.
I went to my sw class last week and my C is fabulous. Down to earth, honest, and just lovely. She admits to her faults (unlike my ww leader ever did) and is more about living your life, not living a diet. The C is always on hand, unlike weightwatchers leaders who seem to do it as a second job, rather than something they actually care about
