I am planning to join sw this week. However, i am at a healthy weight, being just over 10 stone and 5ft7. But i used to be just over 9 stone and for me ten is not great, i am uncomfortable in clothes etc. I know my bmi is ok though. So will i be ok to join? Just don't want to go along if i will be knocked back

I am sure it is. As long as your target weight is still within the healthy range.

My bmi was 24 when I joined & now I'm at target weight it's 21. Both are healthy. As long as your target weight doesn't make your bmi lower than 20, Slimming World will welcome you.

You have to have at least 7 lbs to lose, and that 7 lbs can't take you below the "lowest acceptable weight, which can be found here but if you are 5' 7", your lowest acceptable weight is 9 stone 1 lb.
