Weight Watchers at Work
There is more to losing weight than shedding pounds. You need a long-term, well-rounded approach to healthy eating and living-one that meets your unique needs and helps you reach your personal goals. Join Weight Watchers at Work to access a wealth of resources and receive support in your weight loss efforts. You'll get everything you need to lose weight and keep it off.
At your first Weight Watcher's meeting, your leader will conduct a private and confidential weigh in with you and will also work to set up your first weight loss goal. Each meeting is a discussion with your leader, with a new topic each week. Topics range from stress-eating to family meal ideas. You will also be taught how to follow the Points Plus program to help you keep track of what you are eating and stay within your personalized daily points allotment. When you sign up for Weight Watchers at Work, you will also be given access to Weight Watchers e-tools. eTools allows you to keep track of how many points you use each day, as well as, chart your progress, and find recipe ideas.
