    You need to listen to the Secret World of Slimming Clubs podcast, I think it’s episode 109 that talks about tricks at the scales like an emergency wee beforehand and removal of clothing It’s absolutely hilarious 🤣

    That’s a good loss. You don’t have that much to lose so that’s actually quite a big percentage.

    Thanks I'm happy with it 😊

    Well done - a very nice step towards your goal. :)

    It's annoying having to factor in time of day and clothing but you will know the extra is 'real'.
    Just one of those things,last time I went to a later meeting I took it into account and had a higher target weight but I decided to leave it this time as I will then be a good weight going into the Christmas period and all that entails 😊

    Well done on your loss. I've seen ladies strip down to their bra on top in an effort to weigh less while I've been in a class. It's not something that I've ever been tempted to do 🤣
    There used to be a lady who changed into a thin summer dress when she arrived, she would turn up in the middle of winter with loads of layers on then go and change into this flimsy dress to be weighed 😀 I just always go in T-shirt and jeans then I know it's going to be the same every time 😊

    Lol @CRANKY40.... I've never attended slimming classes, but at home it's defo everything single garment off including earrings & bangles! I need all the help I can get on the scales!

    I'm always to be found completely naked in my kitchen first thing in the morning as that is where my scales live ( it's the only room with a flat enough floor to weigh on 😀) I just have to remember to shut the blind first 😂

    The neighbour I used to sit with at WW used to do the same thing with a thin dress. When she got to goal she cut it up in front of the class. I used to wear my normal clothes just made sure they weren’t particularly heavy ones.
