you just turn up. You can pay as you go - apparently there is a free voucher in this weeks 'woman' magazine. Or you can buy 6 or 10 week countdowns. It's up to you.

I lost 2 stone last year with SW qne used to buy 6 week countdowns as I went to try and keep me on the straight and narrow

good luck! - there is a sw thread Here if you're interested

errr someone has just told me they weigh you in front of everybody, does this really happen?

I'm having second thoughts now.

Not really in front of everyone. It's very discreet. Only the person doing the weighing will know what your actual weight is, and you, of course. It gets recorded and then the Consultant will read out what your loss is. Our Consultant would say "Surfermum has had a little gain this week but overall has lost a total of xxx". No-one ever knew what my weight was, or how much I'd put on if I had (unless I told them).

I lost over 2.5 stones with SW a couple of years ago. It really does work. And you will find that there are lots of people there in exactly the same boat as you.

Don't be nervous .

I think I read recently, and it could have been in the SW magazine as I bought it this month, that they weigh you in front of everybody but they don't read out the result, they just write it down. I suppose they might say how much you have lost but that is good, surely? A cause for celebration!

Certainly reading out your weight would be very off putting!
