Many people don’t know that there is a weight watchers program in our own town. Every Tuesday night, at 5p.m. , at the Luther Church. This program is really beneficial and works.
Why diet, and not be able to eat what you want? Weight Watchers is a portion size decrease. Many people are in Weight Watchers to stay fit or to lose weight. Anyone can join if you’re above the age 18 /years old or with doctor’s note.
With weight watchers you get weighed weekly on Tuesday night at the meeting and get encouragement from the other members. Weigh ins are private and confidential. At the meetings, the members share their weekly workouts or tips about what to eat.
During the meetings, the leader goes around the room and asks how much participants lost that week and how they did it. If you lost weight, you will receive bravo stickers and when you meet a goal, you will get ribbons. The meetings provide support and lots of help.
That really helps people feel good and be who they are with the group. People probably do not know that there is help here in our community.
The program does cost money, ages 18 and up is $12 a week, youths is $11. A monthly pass is available for $80 for 8 weeks.
