That could depend on if your area is a franchise or WW owned. You would generally only pay for missed meetings up to the point where it would cost more than rejoining. But I don't know what the $43 for maintenance is. I've never heard of that. Sorry it's not much help but I didn't want your post to go unanswered.

 

BTW congrats on making goal!

Because you aren't at Lifetime yet, you are still a regular member and you should still be paying your usual $14 / week. That happens regardless of your weight and for six weeks after you make goal. It's not surprising that you've gained, that is a normal part of learning maintenance. You need to take the weight off before you can make Lifetime, so you need to go back to your Losing Points levels. Whether (or when) you make Lifetime depends on your weight at the END of the six weeks. If you go over during the 6 weeks it doesn't matter as far as the rules for making Lifetime, so make sure you go and weigh in.

 

If you made goal on 8/28 you should make Lifetime on 10/9, except for whatever happens with the missed week and the holiday. For that you need to talk to your leader. This is NOT the right time to be missing weeks! You are SO CLOSE! It is normal to resist completing projects and it is IMPORTANT for you to get to these last few meetings to make Lifetime!

 

I'd talk to the leader about what to do about buying a package at this point, since you are so close to making Lifetime and being able to attend for free (as long as you get your weight back down!).

 

Maintenance is NOT about going back to your old habits! It's about eating just like you did while you were losing, only eating enough more so your weight stays pretty much the same. It may not be worth it.

Yes, one of the rules of WW is you pay every week whether you go or not. Once you make Lifetime, you don't have to pay for missed weeks.
