Hi All!
Thinking of joining SW as I've been a WW'er for years but really fell of the wagon in the last year and always hungry as I do a bit of exercise!!. I need/want to loose 2 stone, but want to do it healthily and not eat low point junk (like I did on WW).
Ideally I would go to class (there's one 5 mins from my house) but the telling everyone in class your loss/gains fills me with dread (I used to hide at the back at ww)! and I would have to take my little one with me.
Is online any good or would I be better off at class?
Look forward to getting to know you all smile

I've been an online member since April and have lost 2st 12lbs so far. Got a long way to go still. I haven't ever been to a class so I can't compare them. For me, I am really busy when all the local classes are on, and I figured it was better that I spent the time doing some exercise rather than sitting in a class. I get the support I need through here and from my family. My partner has been doing it with me and he has lost a similar amount. He was smaller when he started, so he is now trying to maintain.

Well done Emmaluvseeyore that's a great loss! you are proof to me you can do it online! I am trying to get my husband on board as he has just developed type 2 diabetes (at 36!) and Dr said his diet could help reverse symptoms.

He will need to be cautious doing it with type 2 diabetes as a lot of the low fat products that are low syn/syn free are packed full of sugar. My parents both have type 2 diabetes so I know quite a bit about it smile You can still do SW, just have to be careful. Diet will really help - my partner's dad was diagnosed a few years ago. He subsequently lost a lot of weight and is now completely healthy smile

Definitely give it a try online! I registered using my details, but my partner and my mum have the login details so they can access all the stuff on the website too. They just write down their weigh-ins rather than entering them on the website like I do. You still get the weight loss awards like you do in the meetings too :D

If you go to class you don't need to say how much you've lost or gained. My consultant will usually say if someone's had a gain but not how much, although she will say how much someone's lost. However, if you tell the consultant that you don't want this then she won't, she'll just ask you how your week's been and how you feel about your result so it's up to you then how much you share. They never tell the group what you actually weigh.
