Weight Watchers: Success Stories at USF

Though she knew about Weight Watchers, Elizabeth Bernhardt said she could never imagine herself becoming a member. But after a friend started attending neighborhood meetings, Elizabeth's perception changed.

Elizabeth's weight had been steadily rising for a number of years and she was unhappy with the extra pounds. Tying her shoelaces was uncomfortable. Having her photo taken was something to avoid. And shopping for clothing was demoralizing.

So, when the University of San Francisco decided to host Weight Watchers meetings a few years ago, Elizabeth jumped on board. She loved the convenience of at-work meetings during the lunch hour and enthusiastically bonded with a colleague each morning over food choices and points.

Week by week, month by month, the pounds began to drop. By the end of the first year, Elizabeth had lost more than 50 pounds.* She took up biking again, an activity she once loved, and went out of her way to add more activity to her daily routine.

Today, more than five years later, Elizabeth is still a member, still attending meetings, and still tracking points. She has maintained her weight loss and stays close to her goal weight. Now it's a pleasure for her to buy new clothes. And her satisfaction with the Weight Watchers program? It's off the charts.
