“It’s always a great time to start and commit to a healthier you,” says Weight Watchers at Work team leader on campus, Colleen Turnbull.
To begin this commitment, the campus community is invited to register for the Weight Watchers at Work program’s new series which will be starting on September 17.
Turnbull, who is also the Area Manager/At Work Manager for Weight Watchers in Windsor/ Essex County, says the program has helped members on campus lose more than 700 pounds combined since October 2013, and seven employees have become lifetime members and are enjoying the benefits of living a healthier life.
New with this series are free online tools that Turnbull says have helped members, who combine their use with Weight Watchers meetings, to lose eight times more weight than those who have tried to lose weight on their own.
Registration for the new series will take place in person today, Monday August 17 and on Monday 24, from noon to 1 p.m. in Chrysler Hall North, room 2173. Registration can also be done by phone or online. Individuals who stop by today, will also be able to explore the online tools and additional resources that can assist participants in their weight management journey
The University’s Weight Watchers at Work program is coordinated by the Department of Human Resources as part of the University’s commitment to supporting employees in achieving health-enhancing personal lifestyle practices.
