Have your groups been cancelled yet?

I’ve been wondering the same, I only returned 2 weeks ago and have been doing well but this situation is going to make it harder....supermarket had no tinned tomatoes or 5% beef mince earlier! This could go on for months so I’m not sure how well dieting is going to go (unless we can’t go shopping in which case we’ll starve anyway!)

Nope.

Their press release on their website says to basically carry on as usual! This isnt even on their website homepage. You have to scroll to ‘Newsroom’ at the bottom.

My consultant sent a message saying anyone either at risk, NHS or careworker can go earlier than normal to have a 1:1 with her. Business as usual for the rest of us.... I think I might weigh and go. I usually really enjoy the group but don’t fancy sitting shoulder to shoulder with everyone as we are usually packed in.

I think their response is poor to be honest. I know WW have cancelled their groups and gone to online ones.

Surely SW groups are franchises, so they’re not actually employed by SW, so it’s up to hosts whether they cancel or not.

Business as usual at my group this morning, but the Consultant said that the situation might change as there are further developments.
Said there was nothing as yet from SW head office.
We talked about possible solutions if necessary, eg staged weigh-ins.
She had to keep steering the conversation away from members talking about toilet rolls!

I think I will just weigh in and go too. Someone on our FB group said about our consultant videoing it and uploading it for us to watch which i thought was a good idea.

I'm seriously thinking of not going. Have already said no to doing the weigh in due to my chronic health conditions.

I wonder if they will change their stance now that all ‘non-essential’ stuff should be cancelled, as this really is!

Apparently sw are letting their consultants know this morning what they should do. So we will know then. I expect it will all close for a while. Our group has a v high older person count so probably safest if they do suspend it

All groups cancelled according to my consultant. Orders from above.

Makes sense, it's a lot of older people and high BMI people who are also high risk.

I heard at 10.30 while in costa, that they had been cancelled. Wasn't confirmed until 2.30pm by my consultant.

Then someone said "so Tuesday class is cancelled... so Thursday is on right!" 🤦🏻‍♀️

I hope they are cancelled. My mum is a SW consultant running 2 groups and I was quite concerned at the weekend when she said she was planning to continue as normal.

Sensible and understandable, but another bit of normality in our lives suspended.
