Thanks Michelle! I only pay for the food but there is an option to pay a few dollars a month for the site where they give you personalized exercise programs, diets, and monitoring. But I don't use that, I've just been paying for the food. Some people in my family thought I was crazy and wasting money but the proof is in the pudding, and besides I have hardly been buying groceries so the overall cost hasn't been much more than I would have spent otherwise. I like the program, it may not be for everyone but it is great for me. I am going to get off of it after losing another 10 pounds which should be before the end of the year. Hopefully I will continue eating well and exercising after that but if I gain some weight again I will go back on eDiets before the summer. This next summer will be the first one in years where I won't feel embarrased about going to the shore with my friends!
