What you can expect as the weeks go by it a slow steady of dwindling of the people in the room. Before the end of your session fewer than half of those people will still be at it. But the successful ones will still be in the meetings.

And not because they are successful.

It's the other way around. They are successful because they are the ones in the meetings.

So have at it. Don't skip meetings. Put it on you calendar, just like a meeting with a client.

The meeting yesterday was good, I guess. It was REALLY crowded, the room was not nearly big enough and it was so hot in there. And I find it hysterical that the room had those chairs in it that have the little desk-top attached. Sorry, but that just make me ROFL: trying to make fat people squeeze into this type of chair, are you kidding me?

So the leader was a man who had lost 100+ pounds. Mostly he just went over the basics of the program, so I can't really decide what I think about the leader yet. The best thing about it was that my gain was not as much as I had feared!

I am psyched about doing this program and I am ready. Stay tuned.

You should expect to be welcomed at the weigh in desk by a smiling friendly receptionist who will weigh you and record your weight confidentially. As a receptionist, I learned that what a priest once told me about hearing confession was quite true ... when the person leaves, you pretty much forget about it. I never remembered anyone's weight. Besides, that receptionist was once on your side of the table so she/he knows exactly where you are.

The leader will conduct the meeting and talk about a subject given out by Weight Watcher (Inc) for discussion this week. She will also try to get you to purchase Weight Watcher products like bars and stuff, but as I am no longer an employee, I will tell you ... that's a fool's game. The stuff is expensive and similar products can be gotten at the supermarket. The food scale is a very good one, but you can one that is quite adequate at Bed Bath & Beyond for much less.

Good luck with the program. It works. I lost 90 pounds. And I went from a fixture on the couch to running a marathon. You can do it.

Hi all! My first meeting is today at 1 pm; I am participating in a Weight Watchers at Work class. Any tips on what to expect? What are your best tips for newbies? I will be reading here throughout the day as I get a chance.

I have a long journey ahead of me, and while this class only lasts 10 weeks, I hope to lay to strong foundation and continue with the principles long after the 10 weeks are over.
