I’ve been looking into joining weight watchers, as I like to keep my options open, but I have a few reservations.
To start with, while I may be happy to write about my battle to lose weight or to tell anyone I know, I’m not 100% sure if I would like to get involved in a group of complete strangers. I’ve never been particularly good with groups or anything that involves regularly scheduled meetings, so I don’t think I’d feel particularly comfortable going to a meeting by myself. If a friend or colleague was attending as well then I probably would.
The other thing is that while weight watchers has “men only” meetings in some parts of the country, they don’t have any in my area.
Of course if I really wanted to I could always opt for the “Weight Watchers at Home” system, which gives you all the booklets that you’d get normally plus you have access to their consultants.
