Weight Watchers at Work

The Weight Watchers at Work discount program is offered to all state group insurance program members. Research shows that following a weight-loss program with support from others significantly contributes to weight loss success.

Participants will receive their membership at a discounted rate. Meetings are pre-paid and each one lasts approximately 45 minutes, including a private weigh-in. Meetings are typically held during the lunch period at either 11:00 a.m. or 12:30 p.m.

Program Costs Based on Length

  10 weeks 13 weeks  
   New or renewing member $115 $150  
   Continuing/transferring member $115 $150  
   Lifetime members over goal $110 $143  

Upon joining the program, members will receive a weight record book to record their weight each week. Members are allowed to visit traditional weight watchers meetings, but should always remember to take their weight record book with them as proof of membership.
