What happens at a WeightWatchers meeting?

“Some talking, some listening, and a programme that works.”
Published 5 September, 2018
"Meetings are a place to come together and get inspired to become the best version of yourself. You'll be greeted by like-minded people, and although everyone has their own reason to join, you soon find you are not alone."

Sam Rennie, WW Coach

Meet your Coach 

Run by a Coach who is trained in weight loss and nutrition*,  Weight Watchers meetings are a friendly, supportive environment, where everyone is working towards the common goal of healthy weight loss. There’s no need to book – just find your nearest meeting here - and turn up. You’ll be welcomed and shown where to register, then introduced to your Coach for a confidential weigh-in. Together you’ll chat about why you’ve joined and what you are hoping to achieve, and set your initial personal weight loss goal. You’ll also be given the first in a set of programme books with food inspiration and programme information to help you get you off to the best possible start.

Meet other members 

After the weigh-in, you’ll take a seat ready for the meeting discussion. Fun and informative, the discussion gives members the chance to share ideas, celebrate success and help each other find solutions for any challenges. You can contribute as much or as little as you like; there’s no pressure to speak up if you don’t want to. All Weight Watchers Coaches have undertaken training certified by the Association for Nutrition, and using their expertise and personal experience of the WW weight-loss programme, they’ll guide the discussion based around topics that are important to you, to help you achieve your goals.

Stay in touch 

At the end of your first meeting you’ll be given an opportunity to ask questions, get to know your Coach’s weight loss story and meet other new members. By the time you leave you’ll have everything you need to get started straight away.

Before your next meeting you’ll get a check-in message from your Coach to see how you’re getting on, and you’ll also be able to access 24/7 support via our Online Coaches on our website.

"I looked forward to my weekly meetings and over the weeks I increased my knowledge on how to be successful with my weight loss. 75.5lb lighter, I’m so grateful I stepped out of my comfort zone, walked through the door and got the help, support and encouragement I needed."

Ali Wakefield, WW Coach 

"My Coach has a natural way of turning any negative into a positive and I always leave the meeting feeling positive, taking something away in my mind to help me stay focused. "
