Weigh In To Win takes us through the doors of Weight Watchers.
A difficult step for many to make. One of the first questions our team members need to answer in order for their weight loss to be successful: What brought you through the door?
For Weight Watchers teacher Linda, it was the fear of scales. "I avoided doctors at all costs because I did not want to know what I weighed."
But Linda says once she got up the courage to walk through the door, her fear turned into courage. "I had to step on the scale, but it was at that time... and I tell this to my meetings... that I felt in control."
Five years later and over 100 pounds lighter, Linda empowers others like our Weigh In To Win team member Rodney. He's lost 15 pounds. "I feel like I've dropped two bags of potatoes," he said.
The topic tonight is emotional triggers for overeating. Or re-framing, which is doing something other than overeating. It's working for our Weigh In To Win team member Jennifer. She's lost 10 pounds.
Encouraging others is what keeps Linda successful. "My members really are my support because I hear their stories, and things that I hear every day just kind of energizes me."
