My first week at Slimming World…
As soon as you walk through the doors of any Slimming World group, you can be assured of a warm welcome from your Consultant and fellow members – a bunch of really friendly people all at various stages in their weight loss campaign.
It was just the situation I normally avoided - a room full of people. I wish I'd overcome my fears earlier. The support and camaraderie of the group and my Consultant have been a life saver. I would advise anyone feeling nervous about joining Slimming World there's no need to - you'll find a warm welcome awaits you.
Sandra Robinson astonished her GP and turned her health around after losing over 6 stones.
Before you decide whether to join, your Consultant will tell you all about Slimming World and Food Optimising. Your ‘new member talk’ begins shortly after the group’s start time, during which the other members will be getting weighed and generally chatting.
You’ll then be invited to join the other members and enjoy the session called IMAGE Therapy. It stands for Individual Motivation And Group Experience and it’s full of warmth, friendship, laughter, ideas being shared, recipes, inspirational stories and much, much more.
Image Therapy is so vital - without staying to group (Image Therapy) I wouldn’t have been successful. If you stay to group and learn everything you can to lose weight trust me you’ll soon be on the way to your personal target. You’ll feel like shouting from the highest hill like I am at the moment!
Along with the other new members, you’ll be invited to enrol and get weighed. Your weight always remains private and confidential.
I'd heard of Slimming World but thought it was for older ladies and felt embarrassed about attending, plus I thought they were going to announce my weight
When I joined 3 weeks ago I was delighted - everyone was really welcoming and my Consultant was so supportive – and my weight was kept totally confidential.
Because of your new member talk your first group usually lasts around 1½ hours and around an hour each week after that.
Experience a warm welcome and all the support you need in your local Slimming World group.
