    So I went to a induction meeting today, watch the DVD had a cup of tea, got weighed (o the joys!) and had a chat with my new LLC who is lovely! :)
    The place is gorgeous as well with sofas and tea and water and its just a lovely environment, got my forms for the GP and going on Monday at 8.30am ;)....however theres now a snag in my plans...:(
    Well i hadnt planned on starting till feb, but the groups starting up next week and i dont want to wait weeks before the next group begins ): but i dont get paid till last fri in Jan, and because I couldnt work last month because my mother was in hospital and so i couldnt work, and as im still in college (with two jobs nursery nurse and debenhams lingerie) i didnt get much money and with xmas etc im now pretty much broke, with literally enough money to get me through just enough petrol for the next two weeks!! (my college is like 11miles from my house) I texted my LLC seeing if i could begin then pay her in full on the friday but shes not txt me back yet and im really panicking...what do you guys think? I dont want to miss out on the group I dont want this opportunity to dissapear because its taken so much strength to admit my problems and embark on this!
    I need some words of wisdom is my dream over before its even begun? :cry:



    Please Help!

    Hi TD,

    Don't mean to put another snag into your problems, but you also need to pay 2 weeks worth on your first day. This counts towards your first and 14th week.

    However, it is possible to join a group up to 3 weeks from it starting so although you won't be joining at the same time as everyone else in your group, you will still be able to start at your preferred time.

    I started in my group 1 week later to everyone else but still feel like a week 1 member!

    See if it's an option for you! :)

    So many differences between groups! Obviously, LLC have their own choices to make! Can make it a little confusing to new starters!

    Yeah I only had to pay for my first week too.

    Strangely I need to pay for my first and 12th week of RTM at the same time though.

    Lighterlife really need some standard guidlines or something....

    I intially thought it was just to get us to stay to the end of Foundation and that we lose the 14th week pay if we didn't. My LLC says it's an incentive to help us stick to the plan and not to have to worry about finding the money for the last week. We do get the 14th weeks pay back if we weren't to stick to the plan, or finish earlier than the 14th week.

    Hellooo :)
    Well my mother and father have helped me finance my first few weeks, seeing that it is best for my physical and mental wellbeing, so that ace! So i will be able to begin next thursday...mum might also be starting which would be so good because she deserves some happiness after the year shes had!
    Thanks for the comments guys, must say I was a bit confused with the week 1 and 14 payment i can understand why it was just nothing was said to me, I guess some standardization could be a good thing but right now all im worried about it starting the programme and losing weight!!
    Thankyou so much all of you!
