your secret weapons to losing weight and getting healthy
this week:
if not now, when?
your secret weapons to losing weight.

Do you have some habits that you want to stop?
• Store foods you may see and then mindlessly (over) eat in rarely used cabinets or the back of your fridge or freezer.

• Move your alarm clock across the room to avoid snoozing through a morning workout. Bonus: Set your workout clothes next to it.

• Stash healthier grab-and-go eats in your car or at work so you aren't tempted to take a drive-through detour.

Your health and well-being are what we built our company ... our lives ... on and for over 58 years we've experienced more scientific growth allowing for a real lifestyle as opposed to the deprivation of a diet.

Now you can eat, drink, and be merry (that's if you maintain that positive mindset). Eat your favorite foods. Go out with friends and eat the same foods.
Enjoy your wine and beer.

Ask yourself if not now, when? Look, what could be stopping you except you? Let's go! Get ready for those holiday pics that people will be looking at for years! December 31st is only two months away! You could be 10 to 16 pounds lighter or more! (Many Members lose more than 2 pounds their first week.)

are you thinking of making changes?
Making the leap from thinking about change to taking action can be hard and may take time.
But if not now, when?Asking yourself about the pros (benefits) of changing your habits may be helpful. How would life be better if you made some changes?

Think about how the benefits of healthy eating, activity, a good mindset and enough sleep–the components that comprise the WW 4 Pillars – will improve your life.

For example, suppose your blood sugar, is a bit high ... and you have a parent, brother, or sister who has type 2 diabetes. This means you also may develop type 2 diabetes.

You may find that
Weight Watchers is the answer
Everyone in your Workshop chose to make that hard first step ... once you do, you will move with the group onto better health and a more fulfilled life! Good foods–not being deprived–knowing that it may help control blood glucose and protect you from a serious disease. Why wait?

You may learn more about the benefits of changing your eating and physical activity habits by coming to a Weight Watchers Workshop. This knowledge may help you take action to get to your goal once and for all...

But do you know what your goal is. We always call it knowing your "why".

Look at the lists of pros below. Find the items you believe are true for you. Think about factors that are important to you. After you do, you'll get a clear picture of your goal. Once you do ... don't take your eye off it!

this week's letter from deb w
general manager and voice of philadelphia
November 2, 2022

Dear WW Philadelphia Members,
The environment we live, work, and play in is either a help or a hazard to our healthier weight, and healthier lives.
Don’t feel bad ... we all fall into the trap of thinking we can handle a food item that after being consumed in larger than intended portions, we know we can’t. Jean Nidetch called cookies Frankensteins because she was not able to trust herself to handle them with good portion control.
It’s true that no food is off limits, but "Member know thyself"!
I remember when the bite-size Snickers were first sold. Each bite was individually wrapped, I think one was 50 calories (this was before Points), and I was at goal and thinking I was pretty smart. A bag of those Snickers took its place in my shopping cart and came home with me.
One week later, darling husband asked where the Snickers were in the kitchen. Huh? The whole bag of those little bad boys had been consumed at least five days prior by yours truly. 🤷‍♀️
Everyone wants to have sweets, chips, and treats in the house for family members and guests but how you store them can really make the difference. Studies reveal that we don't think about them if we don’t see them. Place harder-to-handle foods in opaque containers or in the deep freezer ... out of sight, out of mind!
Not making things easily accessible in bowls on the counter, table, or bedside. Contrary to the way our Grandmother’s home might have been but safer for you and me.
Keeping better for you choices in the front of the fridge, cabinets or pantry makes the right choice easier. Set up your environment for the success you’re looking to achieve, you’ve got this.
Do you ever wonder why the Weight Watchers program has worked for nearly 6 decades? Because we’re not doing it alone. I was shocked when I talked about one of my serious weaknesses at the workshop one day and seventy-five percent of the room was nodding in acknowledgment. Workshops are non-judgmental, a safe environment where it’s okay to admit we ate a whole bag of bite-sized candies we told ourselves we could handle and work into plan.

Have a good week,
Deb Wright
