Also, I'd like to see if anyone knows how much the set of books costs at the meetings. I do not go to meetings, but the only other way I know to get these items is off of Ebay and no one there sells the "Getting Started" mini-book that used to come with the first meeting which tells you about the program. I dont' know if they still give that type of thing away at the first meeting. I would be willing to go to one meeting to get that book and also purchase the other materials. Can someone tell me how much the starter kit sells for these days? It's the pack with the Complete Food Companion, Dining Out Companion and possibly a calculator or points slider. It's been so long since I got all my stuff it's hard to remember how they even sold it. Some of the ones on Ebay come with a cookbook and journal too, but not the points slider.
p.s. Doing it on my own I lost about 20 pounds in 3 months. I told myself that I'd take a month-long break if I made it to the 3 month mark. It's been six months and I'm still on that break! I have only gained a few back, but I need to get back on the wagon.
