HI. I'm seriously considering starting SW.
When I went to WW years ago they used to get really funny if you wanted to pay weekly. It was monthly DD or nowt.
Is this the same with SW? I don't mind DD but I work shifts so couldn't make every week so how does that work?
I can't do online as I have zero willpower so need a groupwink

Most people at my group pay weekly. You can buy a block of , say 6 or 12 weeks and it works out a bit cheaper but most people don't . I'm not sure how it works if you do shifts but they specifically asked if I was a shift worker when I joined up so I think that there must be some provision made for it.

The majority of people pay weekly - £4.95 a week. Or you can buy a 6 or 12 week countdown where you get 1 or 2 weeks free.

You get 6 holidays a year and unless you have booked it as a holiday you have to pay for weeks that are missed. If you work shifts though that doesn't apply you just need to make sure you tell the consultant so when you are registered they can tick the shift worker box.

Also you can weigh at any group during the week even with a different consultant. Your consultant will be able to tell you which other groups are when

I just keep making excuses to myself that I work shifts so therefore can't gohmm
But I need to lose a lot of weight and tbh I'm scared I'm gonna be hungry. I love my sweets! I'm a lost cause

I do SW. I pay weekly and I'm a shift worker. If I can't make my normal group because of work I tend to just go to a different one because I don't like missing weeks! You can pay 4.95 weekly at any group you can get to.

Teacupinastorm Tue 04-Oct-16 21:51:02

Ah, sirzy beat me to it!

You shouldn't be hungry & it's great & really friendly where I go. Went to a class around the corner last year. Terrible. Did 6 weeks & gave it up. Found a different group this year. Love it. Doing really well & really enjoying class too. Just go for it. Try to stop to class & there are so many you'll always manage to find somewhere to weigh in xx

Thanks everyone. Will be great if everyone as helpful as you guys!
That's good that I can go to any group during the week if I'm working.
Is there a joining fee?

Joining fee is £9.95 but keep an eye out locally for money off vouchers- some ladies joined last week for £5.

NickyEds Tue 04-Oct-16 22:12:56

Do it! I've honestly not gone hungry on the plan- I'm 1.5 pounds off my 1.5 stones lost so will hopefully get that next week. I've been going 10 weeks.

Teacupinastorm Tue 04-Oct-16 22:24:42

There's so many free foods you can snack on there's really no reason to ever be hungry. The first time I did it I lost 1.5 stone. Then fell off the wagon and after a stressful year completely lost control of my weight and have now ended up with about 3 stone to lose. 2 weeks in and 6.5 pounds down smile my consultant actually told me last week I'm not eating enough which will slow down my weight loss! So the last week I've tried to eat more (obviously of the right things!) and lost 4 pounds! I am a big fan of SW, it's not really a diet it's just a way of eating healthily.

MamaDoGood Tue 04-Oct-16 22:25:17

I lost 3 and a half stone in 6 months on SW and have been maintaining for 4 months.
Please do it, best thing I ever did x

Good luck Lavender! Can you let us know how it goes joining? I'm going to a group on Saturday morning and dreading it - never done it before! Eek!

LavenderRains Fri 07-Oct-16 20:46:21

chelsbells I went! It was fine, if not a little cheesy.grin
There was another new starter and the consultant had a chat with us before the session. She went through all the books & explained everything.
We made a cuppa and sat in the group.
The cringy thing was the leader reading out every ones losses/gains and we all clapped!
Then tips are shared and I got weighed at the end.
I have kept to it since Monday but have an awful headache which I reckon is chocolate/sugar withdrawal.
looking forward to my first weigh in but not sure I will stay to group every week. I was there almost 2 hours!!
good luck tomorrow!

I stayed SW this week and wasn't told that you need to let the consultant know in advance about holidays or have to pay ..
I thought that I could go when I needed..
Also I paid £10 this week as I'm paying weekly is this correct? I thought it was £10 membership then £4.95 weekly 😊

LavenderRains Sat 08-Oct-16 21:52:04

You do need to book in 'holidays' in advance I was told when I joined this week.
I paid £9.95, £5 to join and £4.95 weekly fee.
I wonder if they charged you for a missed week? They should have made it clear from the start really. It's not cheap!

How did it go chelsbells?

It went well thanks Lavender! The newbies were in a little side room and there were 9 of us! So that was reassuring in itself. We then sat for group but not many stayed, saw plenty of people coming in to be weighed but only a handful stay for the group. So headed to the shops for all the right things to eat yesterday and had plenty of speed veg last night!

So far doing well I think... Shreddies for breakfast with apple and plum! It seems easy enough?! Is it your first weigh in tomorrow? How's your first week been?

LavenderRains Sun 09-Oct-16 13:57:12

Glad it went okay. My first weigh in is wed. I'm doing okay. My headache has now gone. The scales will tell!!

Hi I've just started SW , I'm just wondering which category your usual dinner comes under on the Extra Easy food diary ? I had a roast today and I'm not sure where to write it down

OrianaBanana Sun 09-Oct-16 19:23:20

What did you have for dinner loopyloo? The different bits of it will come under different categories, probably. Lean roast meat is free but not speed - most of the veg are probably speed, if cooked without sauces or fats, but potatoes are just free. If you had gravy, yorkshires or roasties you will need to add them as syns.

loopyloo87 Sun 09-Oct-16 19:28:25

Thankyou for your reply Orianabanana , I had beef and turkey with greens , carrots and a couple of roast potatoes I didn't have a Yorkshire pud just a bit of gravy
