THE POWER OF GROUP SUPPORT AND
THE CONVENIENCE OF WORKSITE MEETINGS
Research shows that people
who attend Weight Watchers® meetings lose three times
more weight than people dieting on their own. With the majority of Americans spending the bulk of their day on the job, the workplace is an ideal setting for employees to learn how to live a healthy lifestyle.
Having meetings right where you work is a great help. A Weight Watchers leader comes to your workplace to
provide experienced guidance at weekly meetings that fit perfectly into the busy workday. In addition, you’ll benefit from the support and
encouragement of co-workers you meet and work with every day. It’s a total team effort that can lead to very satisfying results.
Meetings are every Thursday from 12:20 to 12:45 p.m. at Marquette University. (Weigh-ins at Noon and 12:45 p.m.)
The Weight Watchers At Work program will now give you more flexibility and value by offering you a Monthly Pass! By purchasing a monthly pass for $42.95 per month, you can attend meetings at work and locally, plus get FREE eTools. It’s also half off for the first month for Marquette employees. Current monthly pass holders who are attending meetings locally may switch to the Marquette Monthly Pass program and are welcome to attend meetings at work and/or locally. Lifetime members within two pounds of their goal are still free.
The Monthly Pass Program comes with free online eTools including the following:
Join any week! To get started with the new monthly pass program, contact Kristin Kipp at 288-5607 to receive your enrollment and login information.
Weigh-Ins: 12:00 - 12:20 p.m. and 12:45 - 1:00 p.m.
Meetings: 12:20 p.m. – 12:45 p.m.
With a letter from a physician stating weight loss is a medical necessity, Weight Watchers at Work classes are an eligible medical flexible spending account expense (food is not included). This could include weight loss needed to control diabetes, high blood pressure, and other weight-related medical issues. For more information contact the Employee Benefits Corporation, Marquette’s FSA administrator, at 1-800-346-2126.
Since Weight Watchers at Work meetings began at Marquette in July 2009, 16 participants have lost 10 percent of their body weight, 29 have lost 5 percent, and 10 have reached their goal weight and are now lifetime members.
Marquette employees who are unable to attend the At Work meetings, now have the option to take advantage of a special savings on Weight Watchers Online.
