    I went to my WW meeting on Wednesday night and the leader was telling everyone about the new pricing structure for WW starting 6th August.

    Apparently it will be £5.50 (I think!) if you pay weekly, or a £17.95 monthly direct debit which works out cheaper and included in this fee is e-scource, which at the moment is extra.

    I just wondered what everyone's thoughts were about this. A 50 pence increase each week does seem quite a jump, but equally I really don't want to do a DD. I never stay to class, so it does seem a bit steep to just get weighed.

    I guess the question is, is it worth it? :confused:

    I think the answer to your question is that it depends on how much your weekly weigh in's help you. Some people find that without the weekly weigh in's they just can't keep on track (I'm one of those people usually - though I am now gonna try it on my own and see how I go).

    I think if I were still going to the meetings then I wouldn't probably go the DD route, especially as it includes the esource - that seems like really good value to me!

    I think this will effect different people in different ways because different people get different kinds of support from their meetings.

    It's an individual choice I think - you just need to go what's right for you.

    As Marie says it really depends how much you rely on being weighed to keep you on track. If you use the esource then thats great value for money as its about £8.50 a month. I take it theyre trying to move away from the cash payment method and streamline things.

    If you think you can stay on track without going to get weighed Id give it a try, or get someone else to weigh you :)

    Hi Paws
    I wasn't aware it was going up. I don't stay for the meetings, I just get weighed. Personally I do find it helps me a hell of a lot to know I'll be getting weighed there and it put down on my card. Everyone's different though, just have to find what works for you.
    I like Starlight's idea of someone else weighing you.

    Hey Guys,

    Personally I think it's a bit much! I say save your money each week and buy yourself something gorgeous (non-food related) at the end of the month or when you reach a mini goal for being good. Let's face it £20+ a month is a nice bit of pampering and all the motivation I need to keep me on track!!!!
