Happy New Year from Us! We hope you’re ready for a major makeover — not just for yourself, but for what’s been touted the best program for weight loss 10 years* in a row by US News & World Report. New year, new you, new WW program!
When WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers) launched its groundbreaking new program, myWW, we knew 2020 was going to be our year. This program “takes customization to the next level,” making our New Year’s weight loss resolutions easier to achieve than ever before!See it!
Here’s how WW’s weight loss program works: After you take the simple first step — joining — WW will have you fill out a quick personal assessment about your eating habits and behaviors. What makes the personal assessment so valuable is that it really gets down to the nitty-gritty so it can match you with the best weight loss plan for your lifestyle . You’ll share your own food preferences (and be honest — no one will shame you for indulging in some fast food) and also share when you’re most likely to get off track (in our case, that’s when stress hits!). Then, the questions will get even more specific, you’ll reveal more — and help to develop your plan. As an added bonus, the graphics and design are top-notch — it’s actually quite fun to go through the process — trust Us! Based on your answers, you are then scientifically matched with a proven weight loss program, tailored to you and designed to fit your needs. WW’s proprietary nutritional and behavioral science informs every plan to set you up for success!
Perhaps the biggest (and most valuable) difference between myWW and competitive programs is that it’s actually sustainable and designed for you to succeed. When it comes to losing weight, what works for one person simply doesn’t work for everyone — which is why the personalization is such a crucial factor. The other major highlight? The sleek app (more on that later), which features 24/7 chat with real WW Coaches. Yes, you read that right — 24/7. That means that whenever you’re feeling overwhelmed or questioning the impact of a recent meal, you can reach out for support and immediately figure out what’s necessary to get back on track. Sometimes, weight loss can be an incredible hurdle, mainly because of how discouraging it can be when you fail. Failure isn’t an option in myWW – you merely make adjustments in order to keep your goals in sight.
As always, you can rely on WW to guide your food choices so that you can still enjoy the foods you love without ever going through the day feeling hungry or unsatisfied. Each myWW plan has a unique, daily science-based SmartPoints budget to refer to, taking the guesswork out of dieting. This budget is personalized for your age, height, weight and sex so you’re not following the same plan that someone of a completely different body type is following. The best part? You are also given a custom list of ZeroPoint foods that you don’t have to track or measure at all! Ah, sweet freedom.
When you sign up for your very own myWW plan, you can choose between three options to follow the program: Digital, Workshop and Personal Coaching. With Digital, you’ll be given complete access to the award-winning WW app, which will be personalized with your food and activity tracker, Connect groups, FitPoints, WellnessWins (a rewards program where you receive FREE stuff for building healthy habits!), 24/7 Chat and more. Workshop+Digital, the recommended plan for first-timers, encompasses all of the Digital plan, but also includes in-person meetings with your WW Coach and other WW community members. As for Personal Coaching, you’ll have a dedicated expert to provide you with unlimited support and advice, a customized action plan to fit your lifestyle, and, of course, all of the benefits of Digital!
WW claims that those who stick with their myWW plan can expect to lose one to two pounds per week, which is a healthy pace that your body will love, as well as your mind. As you build up good habits, your behaviors around food and fitness may change as well, leading to a happier disposition and long-term success! We stand by WW because it isn’t just a temporary solution — it’s a program that will truly change your body and how you relate to it by helping to zero in on patterns, triggers and provide endless support (which is what many of us need to succeed).
You’ve heard it before, but there’s no better time than now to get started on your own health and wellness journey. We mean it! myWW is the plan you’ve been waiting for, and it’s laying everything you need out as clear as day, ready to get you started whenever. The level of customization offered by myWW is second to none. Instead of going along with the fad diet of the moment or using data to drive your weight loss journey that doesn’t actually apply to your body type, myWW puts your needs at the forefront. Are you ready? Let’s do this!
