Learning to create and live in a supportive atmosphere that aids weight loss is a defining aspect of the Weight Watchers experience. Weekly Weight Watchers meetings provide members with that essential support, as well as the information and tools needed to achieve their goals.

Each Weight Watchers meeting includes the confidential weigh-in (to monitor weight-loss progress), information about the Weight Watchers approach, and a discussion of a new topic related to nutrition, activity and healthy habits.

In addition to the meetings, more information and communication with others is found at any hour of the day or night on the WeightWatchers.ca Web site. Community message boards provide users with a forum to exchange weight-loss tips and strategies.

Meetings & Leaders
The weekly meetings are conducted by a Weight Watchers leader. All of the Leaders are successful members who have attended meetings and become Lifetime members (LTMs), as well as having undergone extensive training. The training includes mastering the specifics of Weight Watchers, guiding people in making positive changes in their lives and facilitating meetings. Because all of the Leaders have achieved sustained weight loss by attending Weight Watchers meetings, they are role models and a source of inspiration and information.

In addition to the meeting leader, the Weight Watchers meetings include people who are at different stages of their weight loss, including the LTMs who have weighed in and are attending the meetings for free. They are a source of practical tips and experiences that members can benefit from for their own weight management.

Many people who have achieved sustained weight-loss with Weight Watchers tell us that they believe attending the meetings was the single biggest reason that they were successful.
