    I got nominated for Miss Slinky last night at my group, chuffed to bits!!!

    There are 4 of us nominated in our group, next week we have a taster week and a final vote to see who wins for the group, would love it if I won, but all the others nominated have done well and are looking good, so cant get my hopes up too much

    Still a great feeling to have been nominated at all

    how does it work then? do you have to be at target??

    The criteria as our consultant explained it is that you have to be "approaching target" - a very vague description as you could argue that everyone in effect is "approaching target" - if they are at slimming world, its more likely they are getting closer to their target than further away!

    Last week in group she just read out a few names of people that were near to their target (I think within a stone) then asked people to vote - but you could vote for anyone you wanted - I voted for someone who wasnt listed, as I dont think she's decided it yet, I just thought she was looking good and was someone who was always quite an active participant in the group. This week she announced the shortlist, next week we all vote on a winner.

    I've seen another description on another post that says "The Miss Slinky competition recognises a member who’s transformed into a sassy, confident woman and slimmed down in time to fit into a sexy little dress for the Christmas and New Year party season."

    So really not sure what its actually about, but happy to be in it!

    First off, congrats!

    In our group we dont seem to get asked for nominatons. Man of the Year was just given out one week and I won Woman of the Year without any notice (literally, I wasn't even there the night my C took along the sash etc).

    What the diff between this and WOTY? Are Miss Slinkys generally younger?

    time2bslim Just doing it this time

    our consultant said on tuesday evening BTW peeps next week is Miss Slinky, we all laughed in our little area as I think I might be the youngest at 54...........and she said something about you could just wear something slinky or even sling back heels?

    We knew nothing more - I thought it was just something they were doing in class.

    How weird that all classes are different.

    Its not an age limited thing. Last years national winner was 51 apparently!

    And despite being "Miss" Slinky - I think men can be put forward too!

    I think its really quite a vague thing, but really about confidence and attitude - and how thats been improved as a result of your weight loss.

    Congratulations on your nomination.

    We were asked to vote at group a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't understand the criteria so have probably voted for someone who doesn't meet it.

    I thought it was just an award for the person who has lost a lot and is continuing to work at it, not necessarily close to target.
