No More Waiting for Weight Loss

Did you know you no longer have any excuses for putting off your weight loss? Weight Watchers makes it easy! They come to campus once a week. Each Wednesday at lunch time, UMW Weight Watchers @ Work members gather to not only weigh in, but also listen to inspirational messages from a certified WW@W leader and share ideas, victories, and pitfalls with colleagues.

In case you weren’t aware, Weight Watchers has time and time again been cited as the No. 1 weight loss plan in the country. It is not a diet; it’s a lifestyle. This is what a recent news report, which rated WW tops among five popular weight-loss strategies, had to say: This 50-year-old weight-loss juggernaut tops every nutritionist’s list. Although the plan’s been tweaked in recent years, the basic concept remains. Because you count points instead of calories, the math is simple, and no food is strictly off-limits.

Join us! This is the perfect time to start shedding all those snow-induced pounds and to get ready for swimsuit season. As an added bonus, Anthem reimburses full-time employees for half the cost of the plan. See – it’s a no-brainer!

Check us out Wednesday, April 2 for an open house at 12:30 in The Link. Any questions, contact Shannon Finley at sfinley@umw.edu or (540) 654-1382(540) 654-1382.
