Weight Watchers Program
Stories of Success
The Weight Watchers @ Work is proving to be rather successful at our HSD Maywood Campus location. The Maywood campus began their Weight Watchers @ Work program in June 2011 and has grown to 40 members. Since the start of the program the Maywood participants have lost a total of 1200 pounds. 40 members losing 1200 pounds, in one year, that number is fantastic! We want to congratulate the Maywood Campus and encourage all participate to remain steadfast towards their goal of achieving a healthier lifestyle. Remember it is never to late to sign-up and start the program. If you have an incredible Weightloss story that you would like to tell submit your story to firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay on track with Weight Watchers Quickbites
Fueling your body the right way is an important part of working out. You want to eat properly before your workout to have the strength and stamina to get through your routines. And when you eat afterwards, you want to make sure that you’re not undoing all your efforts.
So, start with our article Fuel Up Before You Work Out. It’s filled with smart advice on what and when to eat to maximize a workout session. You’ll learn how to balance carbs with protein, find out how to time your pre- and post-workout meals, and get ideas on what to eat before and after.
Then, it’s recipe time. And we’ve loaded this issue with super-healthy ones.
We start off with a hearty Baked Eggplant Parmigiana over Whole Wheat Noodles. You get all the deliciousness of the traditional recipe, with the added benefit of heart-healthy oats and fiber-rich, whole-wheat noodles. All for a PointsPlus® value per serving of 11.
Love Asian flavors? Then don’t miss our flavor-rich Ginger-Garlic Chicken Stir-Fry with Rice. Made with lean chicken, fresh veggies, and a piquant sauce, this light delicious main course is both exotic and easy and comes with a PointsPlus® value per serving of only 7.
And here’s a breakfast recipe that you can make once and enjoy all week. Our Bulgur and Oat Hot Cereal with Fruit combines healthy grains with maple syrup and delicious dried and fresh fruit. And all for a PointsPlus® value per serving of only 5.
Happy workouts and happy eating. If you don't already have a meeting at your location, call me today to find out how to get one started.

Weight Watchers Work Meetings
Due to low participation on our Lakeshore and Water Tower campuses we no longer have Weight Watchers at Work meetings. In order to keep the Weight Watchers at Work meetings we must have steady membership at our weekly meetings. We highly encourage current At Work participants to continuously attend the weekly meetings and spread the word if you wish to keep the convenience of on campus meetings.
