We are past the halfway mark through our third consecutive 17-week series. And the successes just keep coming! Attendance has been holding steady. We have dropped a collective 368.4 pounds during this series and a whopping total of 1539.9 pounds since April 2009! Several members have recently reached their individual goals—with another one less than a pound away!—and we expect to hear any week that they have earned Lifetime status.

The fourth 17-week series is scheduled to begin in mid-April. Be on the lookout for a call for registrations in Intercom in March. We will need at least 20 prepaid participants for the series to continue as scheduled.

Are you coming or not? What does RSVP mean and why is it important to events?

The term RSVP comes from the French expression "Répondez s'il vous plaît," meaning "please respond."  If RSVP is written on an invitation it means the invited guest must tell the host whether or not they plan to attend the party.  It does not mean to respond only if you're coming, and it does not mean respond only if you're not coming (the expression "regrets only" is reserved for that instance).  It means the host needs a definite head count for the planned event, and needs it by the date specified on the invitation.
