If weight-related goals are on your radar, consider attending Weight Watchers at Work. The fall session will begin Tuesday, September 2. A free informational meeting will be held Tuesday, August 26, at noon in 250F McCormick Hall. Twenty people are needed for the program to continue.

Here is what summer participants had to say about the pilot Weight Watchers at Work program held over the summer:

  • “The program really works—I’ve lost 23 pounds so far!”
  • “The Weight Watchers at Work is a very warm and welcoming group: They allow you to share your issues without feeling judged or condemned.”
  • “I appreciate the support I get at meetings as well as learning about the ways other people navigate the program.”
  • “A great benefit is meeting people from all across the University.”
  • “I enjoy the convenience of the meetings being on campus. I don’t think I would have the energy to attend a meeting after work and I don’t want to have to attend a meeting on the weekends.”
  • “The group is very supportive in helping everyone meet their goals.”
  • “We are from different age ranges, diverse backgrounds, and different stages in life, which brings the program in full spectrum of the well-rounded dynamic of being a person who wants to lose weight.”
  • “I really appreciate the interaction with others. It allows me to see that weight struggles are not just something personal that I am going through and that there are others just like me working and fighting to lose weight.”
  • “I love the healthy swap options that the group provides. The majority of the time they are food options I haven’t considered, so I go home, try it, and love it!”
  • “It’s inspiring to hear people share their testimonies of what they accomplished that week. It really motivates you to keep going and share your story too.”
