"Weight Watchers has been such a wonderful program. My blood pressure has dropped and my energy has increased. I have learned healthier eating habits that will remain with me. Everyone in the program is so supportive of each other that it is no wonder that we have lost weight!" -WW Member
"...with the help of WW, I lost 10 lbs and by improving my diet reduced my risk of developing heart disease to below average. I probably would not have done this if W&L hadn't made the class so accessible." -WW Member
"I should say that I have been very blessed by the WW program. I honestly never thought I would be able to lose weight again. I have been able to stop taking blood pressure medicine and enjoy feeling better than I have in 17 years." -WW Member
