“Making Money or giving support?”

Written on: 18/08/2014 by HarmonyMeredith (1 review written)

I've just lost considerable weight with LighterLife and if you follow the diet it does work but at a high cost - around £60 per week plus a fee of £60 every month for the meetings and support. I felt the whole time that I was there to make money for the leader and LighterLife and that they only really wanted people who believed in the diet. I raised queries once or twice and just got treated like I was simple whereas in fact I felt they didn't want to hear from anyone who wasn't a believer. I went on holiday and was asked to pay the £60 which became due while I was away before I went.... I bought bars that I didn't eat then asked if I could not buy bars for a couple of weeks on my return. I got a scandalised email back saying no, that I had promised not to eat. Where is the support in that? Making money is by far the most important thing and I feel had. I'm off to a Cambridge Diet meeting this evening - I'm assured it's much more supportive so fingers crossed

I have lost 2 stone with L L so am feeling quite pleased with myself at the moment. It is a diet I believe in. I only went to two group meetings where i was paying about £74 per week. However, I decided to try working out how this could be the weekly cost because it made no sense to me. I quickly realised that I was paying £15 pw over the odds for my food! It was only then did i realise that I was paying a weekly fee for the group session. Now, I wouldn't have minded quite so much if i had actually been told of this charge but it was never mentioned!!! A hidden charge is not ethical.
In these first 2 weeks I had a good weight loss so obviously wanted to continue but I did not want to attend group....I am a professional in health and social care and psychological sciences. The topics discussed at group I did not feel I needed...I just wanted the foodpacks.
Whist Googling diets I quickly became aware that I could purchase LL at Superdrug. Ok, the selection and choices were not so great but I kept telling myself...its only for another 4 weeks or so. I am now 2 stone lighter but would ideally like to lose another stone. I have not needed the 'support' of a group but i can understand that others may need this. I just need to continue for about 4 weeks more and I will be at my goal. I will do this on my own and be making my purchases at Superdrug. Maybe LL will one day consider allowing Superdrug to stock more of their products PLEASE!!!!!
