Good luck; I went to my group on my own and I was terrified but there were plenty of others starting too. It took me a while to talk to people but everyone is lovely and so supportive of your weight loss journey. Enjoy taking the first step

Hi and welcome (don't think I've said that elsewhere on the board)

Hope your meeting and group goes well - I remember being really nervous and dreading weigh in - but the best part is, that number is never going to be seen again! You will go down from there, and be feeling tons better in future groups I'm sure.

Let us know how you get on. A lot of us use journals on here to track our food and natter / support each other, if you haven't already might be something you find useful.

Thanks for the support everyone, went to the group and loved it. I was a bit concerned going on my own, but the consultant was very good and sat me next to a lovely lady who chatted away to me. Someone on here said they were uncomfortable with the image therapy part of the class where they said everyones weight, I did not find that at all it was done in a very concientious way, looking forward to the next one. I know classes aren't everyones thing but I personally would reccomend it.

Really glad you've had a great first group and weigh in. I personally stay for group too and enjoy chatting to the ladies, and the support offered and received. I knew when I joined 4 weeks ago that I needed it to stay on track and motivated.

There is a Tuesday weigh in day on a thread here if you fancy jumping into it, it's nice to catch up with others who weigh on your day, but also other days to offer congrats etc.

Well done tonight - it is nerve wracking but will get easier.

Hi there. I am a newbie. and was considering sliming world. but I just read Eileens comment about them reading out everyones weight. I would be mortified. is this correct. it seems really strange. I can't even bear to have my photo taken. never mind my weight being made public?
