New session of Weight Watchers at Work begins Tuesday

July 11, 2011

WorkLife Programs is offering a new session of Weight Watchers at Work, to be held from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesdays beginning tomorrow and running through Sept. 27.

The first class will meet in Grissom Hall, Room 180. The remaining classes will meet in Stewart Center, Room 320.

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 eligible for only 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 “Fast Food Fix" to brochures like "Nutrition After Fifty: Tips and Recipes," there are materials available to support and supplement your 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.
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. Materials may only be sent via campus mail; therefore, spouses/same-sex domestic partners and retirees are not able to check materials out.
