I Wish I had Weight Watchers as a Teenager.

I Wish I had Weight Watchers as a Teenager.

On Saturday in my Weight Watchers meeting, my leader mentioned in passing the news that Weight Watchers was going to start offering free memberships to teens 13-17. I didn’t think much of it other than an “oh, that’s a cool idea.” That is, until tonight when I started seeing the backlash – specifically, this article. While I understand her points and her opinion – I 100% respectfully disagree with her.

Weight Watchers Saturday – 8.19.17

Yep, another Saturday Weight Watchers post. I’m going to be doing these as much as I can to keep up with my progress and talk a little bit about what our meeting topic was this week. Here we go! To be honest, I had a bit of a rough week. It started with a family dinner at my sister’s house… and she made cheesecake.
