Weight Watchers is offering a new program to VCU employees. myWW is a program with three different plans for members: green, blue and purple.  Here’s how it works: 

  • New members will take an assessment that matches them with the plan that best aligns with their lifestyle. 
  • Current members are experts on the WW program, so they have the option to stay on their current plan or switch to a new one. WW Coaches are trained in all three and can help members who have any questions.
  • Our science-backed SmartPoints® system will remain at the core of all three plans, but each plan has a different balance of SmartPoints® Budget and ZeroPoint™ foods list. This customized approach is sure to give your members confidence that they’re on the wellness path that’s right for them. 
  • If a member decides that they prefer a different plan, they have the option to switch at any time.
  • Visit weightwatchers.com/us/CommonHealth to register.
