I'm joining tomorrow, if you like I can 'report' back what it's like etc.
That'd be great hun. There's a SW at the end of my street too lol xx


Hey! As promised I am reporting back. :-D

When I got to the meeting (went with MIL), the consultant (who is still losing weight and still goes to her meetings) gave us a small box with different books in and an admin form to fill with things like name, address etc. She then spent time going through the books and talking about which foods are free, which are healthy extras and syns. After she was happy that we knew what we were doing, we joined the rest of the group and she went through everyone's weight losses (but didn't disclose actual weight) and asked the individuals to share reasons for their success and asked those who weren't happy with their progress if there were any reasons why and what they are going to do differently. She asked everyone what their goal was for the next weigh in and then awarded the slimmer of the week certificates and prizes. She gave us her contact number, told us we could contact her at any point an1d that she will call/text over the weekend to see how we are getting along.

The website has some great menu plans as well,including budget and family and lists the shopping list required and the cost from Tesco. There is also an app for Android phones. Not sure about iPhone but I know Blackberry don't have one.

Some of the recipes include lasagna, ocean pie, casseroles, currys and LOADS more.
That sounds great. Will try to find somebody to join with me becasuse I'm quite shy and don't like talking around nevermind to people I don't know so I think i'll be more likely to stick with it if someone comes with me. Thanks for the report hun xx

You're welcome. That's why I took my MIL with me. The banner was outside the railings where the meeting was with the consultants number on, I called her on it and said that I was unsure where the meeting was being held. She came outside to meet us and waled in with us. We weren't expected to participate in the first meeting either. Maybe that is something you can do? At the end of the day, the consultants are there to help us and if you are nervous, they should help you with the first steps. They are always the hardest. Good luck.
