Weight Watchers Changes for 2019
Weight Watchers is now Wellness That Works
Everyone is freaking out, understandably so… Weight Watchers is CHANGING! GASP! Change isn't always bad, but it's normal to be anxious about it at first. From what I've read and watched, it seems Weight Watchers isn't changing a whole lot for most of us. The majority of WW users have always focused on overall health and wellness rather than a quick crash diet or eliminating entire food groups or macros. That is why it works so well! There are going to be a few changes though, and I think you'll ALL agree they're for the better.
Weight Watchers Changes to Wellness that Works
Weight Watchers is no longer just focusing on weight, but putting everyone on a path towards overall wellness. This is something we've talked about in the Facebook group a lot. Moving more, making better food choices, that's what Weight Watchers has always been about for me!
“We can be so much more” – Mindy Grossman, Weight Watchers CEO
For more than 50 years, Weight Watchers has always been a tool to help us lose weight and feel great. So while WW is evolving, it's not changing a whole lot. Changing from weight to wellness makes Weight Watchers more like a lifestyle rather than a diet. WW aims to be your partner, giving you access to technology and support along your journey.
Weight Watchers – now Wellness That Works – teaches healthy habits for better eating, whether you want to lose weight or not!
Wellness That Works is also teaming up with Headspace (a mindfulness app) to help you eat better, move better, and have your mind support your wellness journey. Original content will be launched in your WW app.
FitPoints 2.0 is launching – taking the science that has worked in food and applying it to exercise. I am intrigued to find out exactly what this means.
Wellness Wins is also launching! You get rewarded for the efforts you take towards getting healthy. This is probably the most exciting part for me, as I do really well with rewards programs.
Overall it seems like the Weight Watchers we know and love isn't changing much, but the changes they're making are definitely positive and I can't wait to see where they take us! Read more about the changes.
