I'm halfway through my second week, and down at least 5 lbs (YAY!!!). They don't start you on exercise until week three because it's been proven that if you start a diet and exercise program at the same time, if you give up on one, you will give up on the other. I should get the book that explains how many points you can subtract for exercise when I go back on Weds.
Everyone seems really nice at the meetings I go to. There's people there who need to loose a lot, and some who have much smaller goals. Probably a half dozen of them are at their goal weight and there for maintenance. I wouldn't worry about people chasing you off. But not paying the weekly fee is a good thing!!
I need the accountability of having to get weighed each week though. My life is so upside down right now, it would be too easy to give up if I didn't have to go and get weighed on Wednesday.
I just finished dinner and still have 8 pts left today, woohoo. There's a glass of wine calling my name! Heck, with that many points, make it two!!
Good luck losing 6 lbs, I'll be sure to let you know about the exercise "bonus" points on Wednesday.
