    Isn't it just all weeks of that month? So if you get weighed on a wednesday they would count your results from 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th February.

    I don't know if they discard your very first weeks loss, but as you're already 5 weeks in that wouldn't affect you anyway.

    At my group they announce it on the last WI of the month after they've got the results. Like Stevie said it'll be your results from 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th (provided that you're a Wed weigher) that will determine the winner this month.

    It's nice your consultant gives you a voucher, we just get a certificate x

    We get a slimming world mug but that excited me and hadn't expected to win for January so was over the moon. At my meeting they included the weigh in results that night. They calculated it after the weigh ins. Very hard thing to aim for. I won with 9lbs but the month before they had lost 15lbs!! Good luck :-)

    Yeah it really varies a lot. I've won it 3 times with 10.5lbs, 11lbs and 7.5lbs, just depends how everyone else does really. In a way I think its actually kinda unfair to smaller members who tend to have lower losses, maybe using % loss would be a fairer way of doing things. All you need is someone with a really high starting weight to join (like when I joined!) and most people will have no chance at matching the losses.

    To do it by % is a fab idea, wonder if they will ever do that.

    You'd think so but SW do seem to be a bit behind the times. Tbh I can't take the credit as I saw something similar in biggest loser. Does seem a fairer system though.

    Hm interesting. I think % would be 'fairer' but on the other hand someone on here pointed out that people with more to lose might need the extra motivation to keep them going on a longer journey! (ha look at me using the SW journey lingo).

    I don't really mind that I'll almost certainly never win SOTW or SOTM, but I have to confess it means I usually don't remember to take something for the basket either unless I happen to spot something on my way out the door - we plan our weekly shop very tightly so there's not much spare unless they want half a punnet of fruit or half a melon or something!
    Made it to target after nearly ten months on Slimming World and now working to maintain between 10st7 and 10st10, have a super healthy lifestyle, and be happy!

    There are people bigger than me at group. If I stick to plan 100pecent I can lose 4-5lb a week. Yes I still have alot to lose. Currently at 14stone 12.5 at 5 foot 7.5. But there is another woman who must be size10-12 who if she puts in 100% can lose 6lb in a week! So dont think it's always as unfair as you say. If everyone gave 100% all time maybe then they would have to base it on % loss. Different people win almost each week in our group :-)
    Start Weight: 12/10/12 - 105kg (16st 5lb)

    Anyway was a nice surprise. I got a pen pmsl!!

    To be honest if she's that small, I'm not convinced it's very healthy to lose 6lb a week! Medical guidelines say to aim for 1-2lb!

    Your first weeks weight loss is halved.
