Slimming World: 11 weeks in

In 11 weeks I've lost 13 and a 1/2 lb. Last week was my first gain, of 1/2lb. 
I'm pleased with that, particularly as I'm not always as strict as I could (and probably should) be but I feel a bit 'up in the air' about it all at the moment and I think as of tomorrow I will no longer be going to the meetings. There's a couple of reasons for this, the biggest being that my maternity leave will soon be coming to an end and my office day is the same as my weigh-in day. There is another weigh in at 5.30 and 7.30 but these are no good to me as I will be working till 5.30pm-6pm and then I'll need (want) to be home for the girls.  
Not only that but up until now I've only been able to stay for two meetings and one of those was cut short to get back to E. I was told that children were welcome but at the second meeting there was a long talk at us about the noise levels in the room and we were asked to make sure our children were behaved and quiet. Now, I know that E wouldn't stay still and occupied for the whole time (the one whole meeting I stayed to, the talk last an hour and a bit) so I wouldn't stay with both girls anyway. But after that talk, I felt like I couldn't. So it's fair to say that I'm not getting anything from the classes, other than to go and get weighed. 
So I'm going to attempt this from home. I know I can do it, I've lost weight at home, alone, before (3 stone, if you're interested). I just need to keep motivated and keep in the right frame of mind. I need to make sure that I don't fall into the trap of 'one more won't hurt' or 'no one else will know'.  At the same time, I don't want to become to obsessed with it as I need this to work long term, i.e. I need - and want - to lose the weight and keep it off. If that means it takes longer because I want to be able to have a slice of cake when I go out, then so be it.
Here we go.
