I am better motivated and more likely to stick to plan when I stay for class.
I made the stupid mistake of stopping going back in August and managed to pile on 9 1/2 lbs over that time. I am really annoyed with myself for being so blase about my weight loss and assuming that as I felt and looked fine back then, that I would do forever without support from other members.
How wrong was I? Restarted last night and bought 6 week countdown as I am completely determined to get it right this time.
I don't see the point in weighing & going personally. I am part of the social team & really enjoy the camaraderie. I've made good friends at group, we keep in touch via a Facebook group during the week, we spur each other on & post recipes etc.
I've only missed 3/4 groups since I started, I find it very motivational.
I've stayed every week bar one when I had to weigh and run. I have an amazing c and an amazing group, I'm really lucky. Staying to class is worth it's weight in gold to me. Next Saturday I will have to weigh and run as my pup will have had an operation and I won't have anyone to watch him and in already gutted that I won't be able to stay
I really don't know why anybody would pay £5 per class plus travel - get weighed and then leave. WHY :sigh::sigh:
After 4 classes you could buy a decent set of scales or go into Boots and pay 50p each week - go at the same time with the same clothes so it is the same each week.
Yes go the first couple of times and get the books but why keep going and then leave - to me that is daft - really can't believe people do this - what is the point.
Harsh maybe - but a serious waste of money - take advantage of what SW have to give, after all you are paying them for this - they are making money from you not the other way round.
Totally agree with Happy Holidays, it's ok to weigh and go now and again but you really do need to stay to get the most out of SW. If image therapy isn't worth staying for, you need to find a better consultant ;-)
The only thing I have to add, which may explain why some people do not stay is that having been a member for over a year now, Image Therapy does become a bit "samey"
However, it is fair to say that these same people who "weigh and run" because they DON'T like the same old, same old, are the ones who struggle with weightloss as presumably they can't handle sticking to the plan week after week?
