Joining a weigh-in

Hi

I'm new to this site. To join a weigh in I just post on the weigh-in forum for my selected day, is that correct? No other admin tasks required right? Thanks

.....or do I somehow need to subscribe to a particular weigh-in day? Thanks

Hi and welcome, ProfessorYaffle123 :)

Maybe this will help explain how the weigh-ins work healthunlocked.com/weight-l...

All of the information you need about the forum can be found in Pinned Posts healthunlocked.com/nhsweigh... and we hope you'll be joining all the Events, Challenges and Clubs that we run, especially a weigh-in and the daily diary.

If you haven't already taken it, here's a tour of the forum healthunlocked.com/?tour=true

We've found active participation to be key to successful weight loss and, of course, it's a good way to get to know people, find inspiration and share support and encouragement.

Wishing you all the best :)

Thanks moreless for your reply. 😊 I have read these and I am presuming I just go to a weighing post and reply with my weigh-in, no joining/subscribing process necessary for the weigh-in groups?

In other words, I don't need to be a "member" of a weigh-in group, I just go the weigh-in post on my chosen day each week and reply? I ask because I see other people mentioning "subscribing" to weigh-in groups and being "members" of groups....

No nothing more to do other than introduce yourself, log your weight and goals, then support at least three other members of the weigh-in :)

Thank you Lytham. I'm going to wait for Friday, that's my usual day to step on the scales as that's when I tend to be at my lightest - just after a healthy week and prior to an indulgent weekend 😂

I can see you’ve got your answer about the weigh ins but I just wanted to say that I love your username. I’m a big Bagpuss fan and your username made me smile.😁

Thanks, I was going to go for "Bagpuss" as my user name but at the last minute I thought I'd mix it up a bit.... Professor Yaffle is a bit of an unsung hero I think 😀
