Yay! I've reached my target weight! What happens now?
Congratulations! To celebrate your fantastic achievement and to help you maintain your weight loss for life, once you reach your own Personal Achievement Target weight you become a free lifetime member of Slimming World! How fab is that!? This means that your membership is absolutely free for life as long as you stay within 3lbs of your target weight. We ask you to come to group as often as you can (and at least once every month for a top-up of support and to inspire your friends in group to achieve their dream target too.) We'll ask you to weigh in each time you attend to keep an eye on that all-important target. As long as you come to group once every two months, your free access to LifelineOnline continues too.
And if you do move outside of the 3lb target range, don't worry, it's all part of the journey. You have a free ‘grace’ week to move back inside your target range – and we do ask that you come along that week or book an absence week, otherwise you will be asked to pay a commitment back fee when you return. If it takes you a little longer than a week to return to your target range, we'll ask you to begin paying your weekly group fee again and benefit from all the support and motivation we provide in IMAGE Therapy that helped you lose weight in the first place.
Setting a new lower target weight: If you reach your Personal Achievement Target and decide you'd like to lose more weight you can set a new target. Unless you'd just like to fine-tune your very final dream target by a pound or two, we ask that your new target is at least 7lbs lower than your last one. While you're getting there, we'll ask you to pay the weekly group fees so we can provide the support you need in IMAGE Therapy, to keep you committed to group and heading toward your new weight loss target. For your safety, we do have minimum weights that we will accept as a personal target (see page 21).
If you choose the lowest acceptable target weight: If you choose the lowest acceptable weight as your target (ie a BMI of 20) and your weight falls 3lbs below this, we'll help you return to within your target range without charging any weekly group fees. If, after four weeks, you haven't returned to your target range, our concern will be for your ongoing health and wellbeing. We'll recommend you speak with your doctor and withdraw your Slimming World membership, to ensure you're getting the most suitable help and support as you return to a healthy weight.
