The counselor didn't make any sense when I kept asking the total price. She asked why she would tell me a price before I had gone to my first session. She did keep telling me about the 30% offer and that it was the best way to go. Something about getting 6 months of??? no clue. She told me one lady bought just desserts. They don't even have a variety pkg to see what I want. She finally told me it would be $3,000 plus, think it was more like $3,500. But, I'd be saving around $1,500 or something like that.

I just glanced thru a thread that I didn't realize ended in 2013. I saw where some were charged another amt. later w/o knowing. Is that right?

What exactly is the plan?? The salesman told me to enjoy this w/e because I wouldn't be eating like it again! Lol, I have taken her at her word and pigged out!

I guess my question is will I be paying a lot more on Wed.? Do I have to buy more each week or month? Can I quit before I even start? Buyers remorse.

I just don't want my CC to be charged each month w/o me knowing.

And can you explain what food I will be expected to eat?? TIA
Hi Libra,

I'm not sure I'm the person to field this question because I've never actually gone to QWLC. I had friends that went and lost weight, so I thought I would try to do the same thing they did. However, since money was an issue to me, I just did the diet on my own.

I posted about my experiences on the first QWLC forum on the following thread (my comments begin on p 11):

Put short, I had bad experiences and a bad taste in my mouth from weight loss centers after having gone to LA Weight Loss. My take on it was that they were more about getting money out of you than helping you lose weight. I wanted to see if it was possible just to follow the same diet plan without going to the center, and just buy my own supplements. The answer was a resounding YES. You can do it without the center. I did, and if I can, ANYBODY can. It just depends on if you are ready to do it. I was not for a long time and then, suddenly about two years ago, I finally was ready.

Anyway, if you want to read about my experiences and thoughts on the business end of weight loss programs such as QWLC and whether its necessary to go to the centers, just take a look at the comments in the first QWLC thread starting on page 11:

And good luck with your weight loss!

Started out at 405.5 on 7/31/12. Then lost 156 lbs to get down to 249.5 by 7/31/13. In the past year I have put back on over 40 pounds and reached a high of 291.5. But I have recommitted myself and quickly took off ten pounds by 7/31/14. I am now trying to take off the weight I put back on, and then lose the rest of the weight I was originally trying to lose. ---- Starting weight / Low weight / Current Weight / Goal Weight
