Now’s the time to sign up for the fall Weight Watchers at Work series

The Weight Watchers at Work summer series is wrapping up on Aug. 23. If 20 people commit to the program, an autumn session will begin as soon as Aug. 30.

Meetings are held on Tuesdays 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.

Each weekly Weight Watchers meeting runs from 12 to 12:30 p.m. and includes a confidential weigh-in that helps participants track their progress. (Confidential weigh-ins begin at 11:30 a.m.)

If youd like to learn more about the program, contact Sue Dufloth at (612) 673-2095 or susan.dufloth@minneapolismn.gov.

If 20 people enroll, participants can take advantage of a 17-week program which includes free e-tools. The cost of the 17-week session is $186 (a little less than $11 per session) and payment can be made in three installments.

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.
