I recently mentioned that beginning August 1, I am on a mission to get healthy. One thing that I knew had to change was my diet. Fourteen years ago, when I was only 190 lbs, and thought that that was heavy (I’m 6′ tall, and at that weight I was a size 12), I had joined Weight Watchers, after a boyfriend told me I could loose a few pounds (stupid boy). I listened, joined, and was successful, but stopped attending meetings before making Lifetime.
Its been a long time since I last did Weight Watchers, but one thing I know, its the only program I’ve ever done (and there have been a few) that allowed me to eat real food, still have a glass of wine, and didn’t criticize if I only lost .25 lbs at a weigh in instead of some crazy number. I also know that my Medical FSA will reimburse me for Weight Watchers as long as I submit my receipt with a letter of medical necessity that includes my weight and my current BMI.
Then, as if I needed any more motivation to join Weight Watchers again, I received an email on Monday (which I didn’t see until this morning, eek!) that was sent to all Weight Watchers affiliates (disclosure: I am a Weight Watchers affiliate, which means if you make a purchase by clicking the link, I make a small commission. They do not sponsor this post or any posts on RAFOAB. All opinions are my own, and based on my own experience. I pay for the same services you would pay for as a Weight Watchers member.)
The email shared the following deals which end this evening (7/30):
As I have mentioned before, I need accountability, so a 3-month pass for meeting and the e-tools is the perfect fit for me. I checked out their website, and noticed that my local Weight Watchers center does not offer monthly passes, however there are quite a few that are just a little further away (within 8mi) that do! YAY!
I selected my center, the Weight Watchers Store in Hamilton, and the 3-month option. My out of pocket cost is $64.42 for 3-mos (approximately 12 weeks). That works out to just $5.37 per week! I had previously had weekly weigh-ins with my doctor, but at a $20 co-pay per visit, that got crazy expensive quick, so $5.37 is a nice alternative, plus I will get the group support I wouldn’t get at my doctor’s office.
At the end of the 3-month, my monthly pass will auto renew, and I’ll take the receipt that is emailed to me, along with my letter of medical necessity, and submit it for reimbursement from my FSA.
If you have been thinking about joining Weight Watchers, just like I have, today is a great day to do it! The 50% off savings is only valid through this evening, and you don’t need a promo code, just to click the link.
Note: The page was acting funny for me and I was only able to search meetings by zip code, not by city/state.
