Weight Watchers at Work Sign Up! Just ask one of the 20 participants who started the Weight Watchers (WW) at Work program last May 5, 2014 at BVU and they will tell you that as a combined group they have lost a whopping #257. If that isn’t enough motivation to join here is more information. This time around all BVU employees and their dependents, covered under BVU’s BCBS Alliance Select insurance, will receive a 30% subsidy towards the membership fee. BUT WAIT THAT’S NOT ALL… if we get the 20 participants required for a 17-week series, everyone will get 2 free weeks so that would be 19 weeks and it is an additional $9 off the regular price plus free eTools! Regular rate is $186, but with 20 participants the BVU rate is now just $121! BVU will even do payroll deduct to make paying simple and easy over three months. First meeting is Monday September 22, 2014. We already have 16 people committed to sign up… please don’t wait, e-mail laursent@bvu.edu if interested TODAY! NEED MORE INSPIRATION? Here is what a Weight Watchers at Work program can provide you! Motivation, inspiration and support — right where you work! Meetings held right at your workplace can create an easy-to-access, supportive environment, which can help you reach your weight-loss goals. That’s why we’re bringing Weight Watchers® meetings to you, so you can attend and stay inspired and motivated despite your busy schedule. • Practical guidance from an experienced Leader who has lost weight with Weight Watchers • Weekly meetings that fit perfectly into the busy workday • Advantages of group support with coworkers who understand the workplace environment best • Meetings that work for both men and women • Each weigh-in is confidential • Weight Watchers eTools, the Internet weight-loss companion to meetings Tue, 16 Sep 2014 03:22:36 CDT http://www.bvu.edu/bvunews#9344fe8d-8ec4-40f2-bc35-aad3fc7bfb71&crumbTitle=It%27s+Not+to+Late...+Weight+Watchers+at+Work+Sign+Up%21 Congratulations! http://www.bvu.edu/bvunews#86ae04cc-c25b-4f76-b09d-4e91d1701ab5&crumbTitle=Congratulations%21 The Admissions Office would like to thank the BVU Community for all of their help throughout the 2013-2014 school year.
