I am such a moron...I just realized it was my SIGNATURE that was causing the confusion on the whole LAWL/PURE Weight Loss stuff...My center that I joined in 4/07 was "LAWL" - then in September (or about that time) they were bought out by corporate (as many franchises were) and then changed their name to "PURE Weight Loss Center". So, I started at a franchise and as of the time it closed (12/8) it was corporate. Most corporate centers are now known as PURE, and from what I have read on here, they received notice yesterday that all PURE Weight Loss Centers will close as of 1/4/08.
You can always ask at your COD if they are corporate or franchise - when we first joined, we couldn't understand why some of our friends were getting different products - turned out that the friends were in a corporate owned center, whereas we were franchise. We went in to our COD and asked, and they told us we were franchise.
So if you don't know, my suggestion would be to ask the COD.
Hope this (and the fact that I have now changed my signature!) helps!
