Never had too much garlic, Lee

And tonight they did the right amount of spice. I like tasting the fish

and
not having my mouth on fire because they used too much garlic.

I love spicy, Lee

Thanks. Like you alway say, don't change something that you can't live

with
for the rest of your life. Friday night take out is part of our

routine.
I
did change DH's original suggestion from Chinese to Mexican so that I

could
have the fish. Very spicy, very yummy. I did get some quacomole that I

have
saved for lunch tomorrow.

You are so cool to not change your fun stuff, I think it is a true

mark
of
success that you didn't change this Friday night family time to
accommodate
but you changed what you order, that is just too cool, Lee

Very easy. I get up at 6:30am, hop in the shower and am out the

door
by
6:50. On the way to the meeting I stop at Dunkin Donuts for coffee
(drive
thru window). I sometimes take some fruit or a smoothie with me to

have
with
my coffee after WI.

The hard part is the night before as we tend to call out Friday

nights.
Tonight we are doing mexican. I am ordering their tilipia (yummy).

that would make it easier to go without food until you did WI,

that is a major bummer, I hope you go again, Lee

Thanks. I'll be heading back at 6am for the early meeting
tomorrow.
I
know my
weigh in will be a disaster, I have a broken leg and a

rather
heavy
cast
on.
Should make for a nice loss in a few weeks though.

6am? And I thought my 7am meeting was early.

Don't worry about the WI due to the cast. What counts is that

you
get
the
materials and can start the program. You might find that you

like
the
meetings and can come up with the money to attend them.

I hear the receptionists ask in our meetings all the time when someone is
joining if they have a certain medical plan, since they can waive the
joining fee and only charge the meeting fee. Also, there is a discount on
the starter kit with some insurance plans.

yeah but it's less money.. besides. if they do a deal with the inssurance
company.. but don't offer it to the member (we are supposed to wait for

the
members to ask) then maybe they get the publicity and still get the 15$...

That's why we just kinda mention it without having ever said a word..

Boy am I talkative today..

you would think WW would promote the fact that they do the work with
insurance, it would seem like it would get them more members, Lee

Where I live in the central valley of California it is $10.95/meeting and
where my daughter goes to school on the Monterey coast it is $9.95/meeting.
Sometimes I am tempted to have her buy my 10 week coupons to save another
$10 over the meeting costs, as my center will take any of the coupons.

We're closed here in California.. I don't know about the rest of the

US..
We're open tomorrow though..

Joining fee here is 15$ (plus meeting fee 9.95$) If you have an Health
inssurance ask them if they run the health inssurance promotion..
(Franchises might not) if you got the right one they'll waive the

joining
cost (15$ here)


Wow! what a difference one coast to another is: Ours is $20 to join plus

$12
NJ or $13 MA per meeting.

I know Kaiser and Blue Shield are on the list.. there's tons of others..

Our leader said today that some of the areas that currently charge 9.95 will
see a price increase in January. We won't be impacted ourselves as we are
already pretty high in price.

I was surprised to hear that the prices vary across the country by so much.
I can understand the different price in MA as they used to be part of
Fiore's Franchise until sometime last fall and could charge anything they
want to. But I would have expected the storefronts that are part of WW
International to be all priced the same.
