Let's set the record straight

Here’s what we really do–and what we definitely don’t.

🚫 Myth: WeightWatchers will send me diet meals

Truth: We’re fans of regular, everyday food. Prepackaged meals don’t teach you how to eat—plus, we didn’t think you’d want to eat those things forever.

🚫 Myth: I have to weigh myself in front of everyone at meetings.

Truth: First thing’s first: you don’t have to go to Workshops (but see why they’re great). Even if you do, your weight is for your eyes only.

🚫 Myth: I have to track forever.

Truth: Nope! Think of tracking as a tool you need now, not always. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll naturally learn what portions and foods are getting you to your goals.

🚫 Myth: I can get the same thing from free weight-loss apps.

✅ Truth: The best things in life are free–but not always. We have features you won’t find anywhere else.
