Yep,you can use your fit points. You also get a weekly point allotment to use as you like. Did your leader give you that? If not, I think you are able to use the app or WW online for free (it may depend on your subscription). I use the app and it gives me a summary of all my points - what I've used and what is left for the week.

emoticon ...I do have a Question.....
I am allowed 30 pts. a day.......but I spent about 5 more......
They allow a few to spread across the week.....OR........can I deduct my fit points ?
(That makes sense)......(I got 8 fit points).......

I'm so glad you liked it! I wasn't sure at first how I felt about the meetings but now that I've gone to a few I'm really enjoying it. It's helpful to hear how other people are succeeding and to share ideas. Great job on your workout!

I agree that it helps knowing someone will see my weight. I love that you and your daughter are doing meetings together!

We went to Thursday meetings, and today decided to try the Saturday meeting to motivate us through the weekend. My daughter preferred the personality of the leader we met this morning. I enjoy them both. I can do structure and do without structure just fine, while my daughter prefers more structure. I think that is why it is nice to have choices of meetings.

Just Believe!

My daughter and I did that too. We have online plus the meetings. I prefer Sparkpeople to WW online, but I love the meetings. It has been too lonely at home. I love listening to people talk. Plus, it helps knowing someone else will see my weight each week.

Just Believe!

I decided to do the 3 month pass and see how I feel at the end of that. The price goes up after that, but that should be a long enough amount of time to decide how I really feel. Thanks all for your comments and support!

I would say do not let it stop you from going. If you don't feel at home then try another meeting. Sometimes you click better with a different leader or the same leader but different group of people. Even if you cannot change meetings keep going--because you are there for you and ask the questions you need answered. Everyone else will catch on.

My experience at meetings has been pretty positive. It has taken awhile but I have made several friends there. We never have to participate unless we want to. I think it depends on the leader. I would urge you to give it time. It's hard to judge by just one meeting.

It was an interesting experience. The leader and the receptionist were so nice. I could tell they were passionate about helping us succeed.

I'm not sure how I felt about the group part. A couple people were friendly, but some of them looked at me like I was intruding. Everyone had to share a struggle (I didn't because I was new) and then the others gave suggestions.

One lady is really struggling with emotional eating, and no one seemed to understand, which I found surprising. My heart went out to her, but I'm still fighting that battle myself and didn't feel equipped to help her. People gave some half-hearted suggestions and then after an awkward silence, we moved on.

I don't know if I want to go back. I feel like the cost of meetings is expensive compared to the value.

What have been your experiences?
