The Weight Watchers At Work program brings Weight Watchers meetings to you!

McMaster University is pleased to continue our partnership with the Hamilton Health Sciences Shine program and Weight Watchers Canada to bring the Weight Watchers at Work program to Hamilton Health Sciences and McMaster University employees. 

The new Beyond The Scale program is not just about weight loss, it’s about holistic wellness. The focus is on food, fitness and fulfillment. The program blends the latest in nutritional science and is also informed by what members have told indicated concerns them about their overall health. To learn more about the Beyond the Scale Program, watch this video.

Similar to regular meetings, At Work meetings are held once a week in a convenient location. The program allows members to incorporate meetings into their work day, eliminating the travel-time to and from a meeting location.

At Work meetings are conducive to making members feel welcome. Meeting groups are generally smaller than regular meetings. In a traditional meeting, there can be 75 to 100 members in a room but in the At Work setting, groups tend to be closer to 20 members. Smaller groups bond quicker and are preferred by most members.

Even though space is usually a restriction, you can rest assured that confidentiality will continue to be a top priority. The Leaders are resourceful and find ways to set up the weigh-in area so it is private. Only you and your Leader will know your weekly progress; whether or not you share that information with some of your colleagues is left completely up to you.

The meetings will support your weight loss while enjoying what you choose. They will help you stay motivated with inspirational meeting Leaders, powerful group support, and access to a suite of digital tools including 24/7 chat.

It's never too late to join! If you're interested in the program, please contact your site champion to learn more about Weight Watchers and how you can join. Want more info about Weight Watchers and how it works? Check out the FAQs for answers to the most popular questions!
