#wwchat - Weekly Weight Watchers Chat

Do you love Weight Watchers? Do you want to learn more about what Weight Watchers is about?

Do you love Twitter?

Do you love chatting?

Do you love connecting with new friends?

Do you love me?

Woah! I went a little off base there. My bad. :P


I have been attending Weight Watchers meetings since November 2009 and couldn't imagine my life without them. The ideas and suggestions from the group are great AND they gave me a sense of belonging. Sometimes during my life I felt like I was the only person dealing with certain problems, but joining Weight Watchers showed me that I wasn't alone - people "got" my struggles.

Thanks to Weight Watchers I have shed 64 lbs (took me 2 years and 2 months to reach goal) and I have been maintaining for about a year and a half or so.

Social media enhanced my meeting room experience. I feel like I always have people in my corner or someone to turn to when I need help. Or if I need a reminder to step away from the cupcake. ;)

Twitter and Facebook have opened my eyes to so many new Weight Watchers friends. It is amazing to connect with folks from all over the world that enjoy the WW program as much as I do. It also gave me an avenue to motivate/inspire WW members that do not get the meeting room experience - the online only members.


In 2010, my friends Colleen and Brittany started a weekly twitter chat about Weight Watchers and I loved it. As time passed, the twitter chat disappeared and I missed it.

So I thought it was about time to resurrect it!! Who is with me?? :)

Twitter chats are fun ways to connect with other members of the Weight Watchers community and get some great support and motivation.

The game plan is to meet on Twitter each Wednesday from 8pm-9pm Eastern Time , discuss different Weight Watchers topics, pose 8 or so questions for folks to answer, hopefully find some new WW friends to follow and use the hashtag #wwchat.

Does that sound like a game plan? Are YOU in?

(Note: the first 2 #wwchat twitter chats have been a BLAST!!)
