Today: Weight Watchers will be starting a new session on January 10th

Weight Watchers is being offered again, starting on January 10th. Meetings will be held on Wednesdays at noon. The cost of the program is $156 for a 12-week session and can be paid for by check, credit card or payroll deductions. If you are enrolled in Medical Mutual’s Medical Plan and attend 10 out of the 12 sessions you will be reimbursed $50. Since April, 22 employees at John Carroll have lost over 500 pounds!

The program has recently changed, going by the name of WW Freestyle, and makes it easier than ever to follow. In a six-month clinical trial, participants who followed WW Freestyle saw great weight loss and impressive changes on and off the scale. The program is still based on the science-backed SmartPoints® system, which encourages you to eat more fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and less sugar and unhealthy fats. New to the program are 200+ zero Points® foods, that you don’t ever have to portion or track. Spend your personalized SmartPoints Budget on any food you like. With new rollovers, you can transfer extra SmartPoints to another day, keeping the program flexible and livable.

To join the program contact Lori Sprague at extension 4962 or lsprague@jcu.edu by Monday, January 8th and you will be entered into a raffle to win a 6-quart Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.
