    :DHello to all, I am a newbie just signed up for slimming world,so will be starting tom.
    I need the threat of the weigh ins as I stopped doing WW (YUK) and tried going alone, and have put on over a stone, so not working.

    I am hoping that this will work, but I was wondering how do you get those lovely starts under your names. I know when you are a slimmer of the week you get one but how do you get one on the ticker?????

    Looking forward to getting to know you all.

    well If you are talking about the brown coloured stars I have for instance then yes they are rep stars. Once you accumulate enough rep you get a star (It is 5 dark green boxes+5 light boxes+10 yellow boxes which makes 1 star). You can rep a post by clicking on the scales at the bottom of the side panel.

    Hope that makes sense.

    p.s. if you use the SW website you get awarded the 1/2 stone piccies- you then copy and paste them onto your signature using the 'User CP' button near the top left hand side

    Good luck with your weight loss journey, SW is great! :)

    Hey I have just past my CBT and just got my 125, so learning but hubby is bike mad and have been pillion for about 2-3 years now, but he is picking up a Kaw Z1000 Saturday and we are both taking a ride to Girls Bike 2 in Dorking to get me a new jacket, he got his last month. He told me that if I can pass my CBT125 with only an 1 hr assessment I could have my pick of new jackets and just to p*ss him off I did just that lol.

    How r u doing, your bike seems to move more than mine
