Kitty it is the very first line at the above link.
"Lifetime membership is a way for us to recognize and honor members who have reached—and maintained—their personal weight loss goal. When you achieve Lifetime, >>>>you'll receive a free subscription to our digital tools and unlimited Workshops! <<<<<"
Plus there is huge thread over on the general board where it is discussed. It is the real deal.
Yes, I read that. I realize that people at goal who are lifetime can attend virtual meetings and in person meetings for free. But -- in the past -- if you were over goal you had to pay $14.95 for eTools but had to pay a meeting fee if you went to meetings (that was all pre-Covid). So this doesn't say that if you pay $14.95 and are over goal that you can attend virtual meetings for free (which is what I am interested in). I realize some people may be doing it but just not sure it will continue. I am reluctant to sign up for $14.95 a month just to get virtual meetings and then have that end in a week (or soon)....
DH is currently lifetime at goal (at least thru Feb since he isn't weighing at the studio). He has access to virtual workshops so plan to check them out before I decide if it is worth it to pay the $14.95. I just have this nagging fear that they will pull back allowing the eTools people to go to virtual meetings. Maybe not before the end of February but after that.... I guess we'll see.
So, has anyone gone to a physical meeting recently who is lifetime over goal and who is paying $14.95 a month? If so, did you have to pay an extra meeting fee?
Currently I am lifetime over goal (the last few months were not good for me at all) and I am not paying anything and don't have access to the app. I am intrigued by being able to do the virtual meetings if I pay $14.95 and I would probably mostly do that. But -- I always did like the accountability of physical meetings.
I have not been willing to even consider weighing in or attending a meeting (truthfully it is the accountability of the weigh in I mostly want) due to Covid. But, DH and I have had our first vaccination and will have the second in a few weeks. So by the end of March, I might feel comfortable going and at least weighing in with a mask on. I don't mind pay the $14.95 a month if it would cover the cost of those weigh ins. But, before, you would have to an additional $15 for each meeting/weigh in unless you had a monthly pass.
I've read this whole thread that they don't charge the extra now for the meeting but I am trying to verify if anyone has actually tried doing it in the last month or so.
I am lifetime over goal and attend physical meetings - at the $14.95 rate and no additional meeting fees. I set it up about 2 months ago through the customer service 1-800 number and have all the etools, virtual and physical meetings. It is set up like a monthly pass.
Sorry I should have put a note on my post saying this is going forward.
There was some kind of change made on 9/1, still trying to find out exactly what the new policy is but it won't effect all LT members that signed up previously (in other words if you signed up before 9/1 you are fine).
I don't want to post anything until I know for sure what the exact change was to their policy.
