Hi Coli. Thanks for your response. I'm feeling better about it now. I was unnerved when I felt like they were trying to get away with something because it seemed like my prices were higher than everyone else's.

You brought up a good point that they might be increasing their prices all over. I've been reading other people's posts here and on weight watchers and some people are saying their locations aren't even offering the free registration with food dontation, so I guess I'm lucky there!

Anyway, I hope to have a great workout. I'm going to join in about a week to get the free reg deal.

Have a great workout, too!
Jen
