Enrollment now open for upcoming Weight Watchers at Work program

Enrollment is now open for the next session of the City’s Weight Watchers at Work program. At least 15 people need to enroll for the program to be offered.

Interested employees can purchase a monthly pass to participate in the Weight Watchers at Work program. The cost is $39.95 per month, which is $9.22 per week and includes free e-tools and an online payment/renewal process. 

Meetings run from 12 to 12:30 p.m. and include a confidential weigh-in that helps participants track their progress. (Weigh-ins begin at 11:30 a.m.) Meetings are held in Room 14, Public Service Center and include a discussion on a weight loss topic and distribution of materials to take home. Discussion topics include: curbing stress eating, making healthy food choices, eating out, getting active, etc.

If your weight loss has been recommended by your physician, a form is available that can be completed and submitted with a receipt in order to use your flexible spending dollars or HRA/VEBA for reimbursement of the cost.

If you’re interested in participating, please contact Sue Dufloth at susan.dufloth@minneapolismn.gov or Amy Friedman at Amy.Friedman@minneapolismn.gov.
