    who thinks the reward you get for being at club 10 is a bit pants? Losing 10% is fantastic, keeping it off/losing even more is amazing - especially for 10 whole weeks.. so why do you only get 1 free week? Is there more to it? A certificate? Some freebies? I think I would rather have a free pack of hifi bars and a magazine! I dunno, I'm nowhere near club 10 I'm just wondering!!

    i cant say i'm worried, i got my club 10 a few weeks ago and it's great yes, but to me it's just another step a long a long path.

    Wait till you get to target then you can complain - no SoW, no SoM, no more stickers, and what did I get when I got there - a fridge magnet!!

    Funnily enough was talking about this last week with a friend who also does SW and we came to the same conclusion - it's not much for all the hard work that goes into losing that 10% a certificate at least wouldn't cost that much to produce surely?

    You should get a certificate for Club 10.
    I got a sticker for my book and a certificate.
    Although I got the free week, I never got to use it as I reached target the week before I could use it!
    Circes is right, when you hit target you get nothing really. I got a certificate but no magnet! But it's great not having to pay.

    We also got Target Badges, but they are STUDS not pin type, so I never wore mine when I was entitled to 'cos it is quite heavy and tended to make holes in whatever you attached it to!!!

    I really do think SW should make a bit more effort over this - I'd even rather PAY a small fee, maybe say £1, for something I could wear to meetings with pride!

    There are quite a few Target members who come regularly to our class, NONE of whom wear their badges - says it all really!

    Yeah SoW wins you a big basket full of goodies, maybe target/club 10 should have something similar!

    I think that when you get to target what you get is pants too, I got a sticker, certificate & badge (which I don't use because it is so impractical), I would still love to get awards though but what could they give us???

    There doesn't seem to be much encouragement to maintain. I guess free entry to the class is something! Free subscription to the magazine would be good, or free tickets to the show in Spain that they do a draw for on the website!

    I guess getting to target is a prize in itself :D

    Someone in our group reached target last night, and got her certificate with a badge.
    As I didn't get one when I reached target, I asked for one and she was apologetic and gave it to me. I will try wearing it but if it makes holes I will stop.

    At ww you get a 10% keyring then a key when you get to goal to hang off it then each year you weigh in at target you get a gold star to hang too. But I think ww is more expensive so its swings and roundabouts really

    Lol, wait until you hit 20% and then 30% - and get absolutely nothing! not even the free week or a lousy certificate ;)

    The reward, or the main reward of course is your health and future.

    Surely that is immeasurable and priceless?

    I agree with u- u feel so good in urself- I feel like skipping outta the class- but still think it wouldn't hurt to make more of a deal of those huge achievements in class!

    I don't know about everyone else but I will flipping treat myself big time when I lose 5 stone and get to target! That's definitely a posh handbag or Ugg boots lol. It would be lovely to get a keyring x
