    you look kind of familiar. It may be hard for you but if it was one specific person there ~ she was kind of blunt ~ you could tell the weight recorders, they would listen. Most of the ladies are very nice and it is a great group!! Fun, social time. I quit cuz my shiftworking schedule only allowed me sometimes one meeting a month and they frown on that... Cuz they all know the tricks of not coming on a gain week. They assume everyone does it.
    I learned alot about unhealthy dieting by an 80 year old member!!
    and i can't quit my job for the group, lol. I miss them and it's been at least 5 years. WW is great also. I loved the meetings and always went away feeling motivated. Take care

    People who say hurtful things are usually unhappy with themselves.
    Don't let it get you down.
    I have been thinkin about joining W.W. but so far just stayin here.

    It's amazing to me how people, who have been through this themselves, can say such hurtful things sometimes. I am glad that you have changed groups. Nobody should have to go back to a group where hurtful things are said- it wouldn't be healthy psychologically. Bravo for you! Hugs, Laurie

    Good luck. We just went to another TOPS group if we did not like the program. Hope you found a great group.

    I'm really sorry that you had the hurtful experience -- but it would be really awful to have that keep you from your goals and living your life to the fullest! So good for you for the new start! You go!

    Welcome back! Yeah, I had a few embarrassing moments while I was in Weight Watchers. When I worked for them after reaching lifetime (6 years ago, now obviously back slidden) they stressed in the training for receptionists what to say & what not to say. Some people just don't think before they speak. Another problem is where the scales are & how loudly the person weighing you speaks. It's nice if there are partitions between them instead of just 2-3 scales with people lined up. Not much privacy there.

    This is a great place for support and information. emoticon
