What is a Lifetime member?

Lifetime Membership is a valuable privilege you receive after completing your weight loss journey as a Weight Watchers Meetings member. Lifetime membership is only for Meetings members.

You receive a Lifetime Membership recognition award when you achieve a weight goal that is within the Weight Watchers Healthy Weight Ranges (or a healthy weight determined by your physician) and are at least 5 pounds less than your initial weight recorded at your first Weight Watchers meeting.

After six consecutive weeks of paid Meetings membership within 2 lbs (above or below) of your weight goal, you're awarded Lifetime membership, if you meet these criteria:

- If you've weighed in at least 2 times between the weigh-in where you reached goal, and your final Maintenance weigh-in;


- If at your final maintenance weigh-in, you're within 2 lbs of (above or below) your weight goal.

If you're more than 2 lbs above or below your weight goal, you should continue to try to maintain your weight, and keep weighing in weekly until you're back within 2 pounds of your goal.

As a Lifetime Member, we encourage you to attend Weight Watchers Meetings -- at no charge and - as long as you are no more than 2 pounds above your weight goal -- in your local area and anywhere in the world.

When you attend meetings, don't forget to show your Lifetime membership book to your receptionist/Leader.
