About Weight Watchers

Enjoy the convenience of attending Weight Watchers meetings at work.  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 GW 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. 

When you sign up for Weight Watchers at Work, you will also be given access to Weight Watchers eTools.  eTools allows you to keep track of how many points you use each day, as well as, chart your progress, and find recipe ideas. Attend a free Open House and see for yourself why people who attend Weight Watchers lose three times more weight than those who go it alone!
