A warm welcome to our Stretford Slimming World group!
This page is designed to answer a few quick questions and provide links to useful online resources for you.
Of course, if you get stuck, please contact me on 07504 749 613
How do I get on the Slimming World App?
The Slimming World mobile app is a great tool to use on the go. You’ll need to register first at www.slimmingworld.co.uk using the Membership Number and ID Number on your card (if you have lost these, we can regenerate them at group for you.
Once registered, you can then download the App for your phone (Apple devices and Android only) and login using your username and password!
I can't find the Syn value for something.. what should I do?
If you cannot find the item by searching online (Lifeline Online members website) or through the Mobile App, you can try using the nutritional values on the ‘Syns Calculator’ at www.slimmingworld.co.uk.
If you are still struggling, send a picture of the packaging (and nutritional values) with your membership number to firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I save up my syns?
We don’t recommend ‘banking’ or saving up your Syns for the weekend (for example) – instead check out the ‘Getting Started’ section of your New Member Pack for details of Flexible Syns to help you have additional ones, for certain special occasions!
How do I access the Facebook group?
You can access our Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/swstretford/
You may need to message the admin (Steve Stretford) if you use a different name on Facebook to what you have registered with in Group
What if I cannot make group?
Please let Steve know as soon as possible. You can book holidays in group when you pay your membership fee, and there are 6 of these available per member, per year.
We only recommend you use these for ‘real’ holidays where you cannot make a group at all – remember, you can attend any group across the UK or overseas to keep up to date with your weight change.
If you don’t let us know beforehand, the Xpressweigh system will charge you for a missed week – and your online Lifeline Online / mobile app service may be cancelled.
How do Countdowns work?
During your weight loss campaign you’ll need commitment and motivation – research shows that people who attend a support group and commit to attending each week, lose weight far more effectively than those who take a more causal approach.
A Slimming World Countdown Course is perfect for keeping you on track, and as a member you can purchase one at any time of the year, in 6 or 12-week blocks.
