    I realise you have to hit target, but then what. Do you have to follow a maintenance plan for a set time?

    Also, how is the goal weight finally decided? The only goal I have been given so far is to hit 5% lost.

    Thanks for any input

    You need to discuss with your leader your goal weight. As long as it's within a healthy BMI, you can set it to pretty much what you want.
    Then after that, you have to attend at least 5 meetings a year, and not exceed your goal weight by 5lbs.
    In addition, if your BMI falls below 20, they'll stop weighing you and suspend your membership
    hope that helps :)

    thanks for the response Crooked, but what I was really trying to get at is this, do you become a Gold Member on reaching target, or do you have to follow a maintenance plan for a set time before you become a gold member? Or do have to have been a paying member for a certain amount of time first?

    you need to have lost at least 5lbs, attended meetings for at least 5 wks, and reached an ultimate goal weight that is within ww healthy weight range (BMI 20-25)
    Once you reach your goal weight attending meetings, your leader will award you with your Gold membership.
    meetings are free providing you weigh-in 5 times a year and you don't exceed your Goal Weight by more than 5lb and attend at least 5 meetings per year

    Hope that helps

    Thanks Michelle, thats just what I needed to know.

    Ive lost my weight, but the hard part is keeping it off and so I have joined WW to help me maintain. So im already at at healthy BMI, I just need to decide now what my ultimate weight needs to be. I could probably lose another half stone now to be really comfortable so thats my aim. I should be able to get to Gold membership by end Feb easily then, and then the weekly weigh in wont cost me anything. Selfish I know to lose the weight on my own and then expect WW to be my lifeline for maintenance, but I really need the support to keep it off.

    help i can't stick to any as i am greedy
    was wondering that myself..i dream of being a gold member so i could attend meetings for free to help me keep the weight off...sadly i have failed to lose weight

    didn't know about having to have bmi of 20..though my goal would be to maintain a bmi of 20 as while i would love to be lighter i think realistically if i got to a bmi of 20 it would be a miracle and besides i don't want to increase my risk of osteoporosis or make my bone density worse than it is

    is there any other conditions to being a gold member apart from the 5 meetings a year and keeping bmi of between 20 and 25 and within 5 pound of goal?

    sorry for barging in
