An award is given out in each group for the Slimmer of the Week. This is given to the person (or persons) who have lost the most weight that week.
The winner is given a certificate and sticker to mark their achievement by the Slimming World consultant.
You are not eligible to be considered for Slimmer of the Week if you meet any of the following criteria:
- You joined last week. The first week’s loss is often out of proportion to a more sustained regular weight loss.
- You gained weight last week. Weigh loss following a gain is sometimes more dramatic.
- You didn’t attend last week. In this case your loss may have covered more than one week. The exception to this is shift workers who often miss weeks due to work commitments – in this case, the consultant may factor this in.
Everyone is asked to bring along a piece of free food each week, to be given to the Slimmer of the Week to congratulate them. Your consultant will normally have a box or basket to collect this contribution.
Slimmer of the Month
The Slimmer of the Month is awarded to the person who has lost the most weight in a given calendar month. It is awarded during the last group meeting of the month.
You don’t have to have attended every week to be eligible for Slimmer of the Month, but you do have to be present at your regular group when it is awarded. If you’re visiting another group on the last week of the month, you can’t win the award in that group.
New members will also have their first week’s loss halved in the calculation of the most weight lost.
