New session of Weight Watchers at Work begins Thursday

January 26, 2011

WorkLife Programs is offering a new session of Weight Watchers at Work to be held on Thursdays, beginning Jan. 27 and running through Apr. 14.
For those looking either to achieve significant, long-term weight loss or just trying to shed a few pounds, Weight Watchers at Work can help effect a lifestyle change to assist with that goal.

If a participant's Body Mass Index (BMI) is over 25, WorkLife Programs will pay for half of the $144 class fee if participants attend 11 of 12 meetings. Participants are only eligible for two of these incentive rounds in their lifetime.
To register for Weight Watchers at Work or other offerings, go to and log in with your career account and password, or call WorkLife Programs at 49-45461.
In addition to the in-person classes, WorkLife Programs also has a variety of weight management resources available through its online resource center. From books such as "The New American Plate Cookbook" to brochures like "The Truth About Fad Diets," there are materials available to support and supplement nutrition and weight management activities.
To use the resource center, visit and log in with career account and password. On the left navigation bar, click on Resource Center. Read the instructions provided, pick your resources, and complete an order.
Please note that some items are sent directly via campus mail, some must be picked up at the WorkLife Programs office at 1402 W. State St., and others are available for immediate download. Mailed materials may be sent only via campus mail; therefore, spouses/same-sex domestic partners and retirees are not able to check materials out.
