Joining a weigh-in

Professor-Yaffle profile image


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

All of the information you need about the forum can be found in Pinned Posts 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

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 😀
