I joined SW a few weeks ago. The diet is great - seems to be working for me and I am losing weight steadily.
However, I am so disappointed in the support group! To start with, I was a bit taken aback to see that the group leader is absolutely immense - far bigger than any of the people who attend. I don't know if she has lost a lot of weight (difficult to imagine), or if she is currently losing weight. She talks about the SW meals she has eaten that week but never discloses if she has lost or not.
Secondly, I was hoping that the group would help to keep me on the straight and narrow by maybe questioning if I wasn't losing weight quickly or even gained it. Week after week though, there is a parade of women who are frankly making very little attempt to stick to the diet (I'm talking Pizza Hut, McDonalds and Indian meal in one week! )Not a word of criticism or questioning how they could have done things differently. I know the ethos is to be supportive, but this is ridiculous!
Exercise hasn't been mentioned once. So far I keep going, but, after 5 weeks, I'm becoming de-motivated rather than encouraged by the sessions.
