    Nope - only ever paid 66 per week. I would demand to get two weeks of packs if I paid 132.

    With the horrible winter we had I did buy an extra week of packs to have in case I couldn't get to the meeting. Didn't want to risk having to eat food if I ran out and couldn't get to see the LLC. I have no doubt I'll use these spares up during RTM.

    Me neither. Just the £66 per week. But what I do now is at the beginning of the month I pay for thw whole month in one go and she marks it on my sheet as being paid then I know it is all paid for.

    I have heard this before but do not believe it is right. You are not commited to the whole 14 weeks and can pull out at any time. It will just be the LLC trying to get more money in the bank!!!

    We had to do it yes. But we didn't pay anything on week 14. I think counsellors are advised to use it as a method for getting people to stick with the diet! (eg the client commitment) If you look at the LL smallprint, that's how it officially works I think

    thanks every one

    there was another counsellor there who said i did not have to do that so i think im just going to pay the £66 a week because if i dont make the 14 weeks i,ll lose £66 and i cant afford to do that. x thanks everyone for your advice x

    Diet:
    Lost 10 stones on LL/Exante a couple of years ago, have regained several stone so giving WW a go.
    We paid £20 deposit refunded week 14.

    But deposit aside, you need to try to think positively, you are just at the beginning, if you believe you will be there at week 14 you will stand so much more chance of suceeding than if you think you may not be.

    Hope all is going well.

    With my counsellor we paid for two weeks the 1st week and the 14th week. Due to the length of time I have to spend on the diet, I had no problem doing it. Also when it came to week 14 they offered me the week back, but I refused as I knew I still had a long way to go.
