That is ridiculous. In a land of fat people Weight Watchers is a growth industry! Even our poor people are fat in America!
Selling Weight Watchers to a nation of fat people should be like selling water in the desert. There's bound to be a growing market for it!
In a nation of chunky monkeys . . . there should be plenty of opportunity for a weight loss company!
Wouldn't it make sense for Health insurance companies to provide membership to Weight Watchers or Nutri-Systems and make their clients healthier, thus making fewer claims??
They'd save money on health care bills with healthier clients, they should wise up and help make a healthier citizenry.
Even the poor people are fat in America. Poor eating habits are forced on poor people by eating starchy foods and lots of carbs, they are cheap. Thank the giant sucking sound of NAFTA and the demise of unions for the loss of the middle class and decent wages.
Very true, without support it's really hard to lose weight and even harder is keeping it off after you lose it. Checking in and weighing weekly or monthly keeps you motivated. I joined 2 1/2 years ago and lost 40 lbs. and am keeping it off so far, but every month it's a struggle to keep the weight off! Damn . . . why is so hard?
Weight Watchers is "Living off the fat of the land" . . .. ha, ha, it's definitely a "Growth" industry and plenty of potential customers in a nation where 45 per cent of the people are overweight and/or obese! How can they not succeed?
Knowing how and doing it are two different things. We're a nation of fatties and need all the help we can get.
I'm a lifetime member and I lost over 40lbs. from July, 2011 'til Christmas that year and am still maintaining it. BUT, I swear it's harder to keep it off than it was to get it off. Every month I gain a few pounds and have to starve a few days to make my weight. So far I've been doing it, but it's getting harder. I've only been going to weight-ins once a month, but I need to go every week, but find it hard to keep it off 24/7.
Last night Charles Barkley told Jay Leno that Weight Watchers is the best thing that's ever happened to him. He's taken off a ton of weight and kept it off for a long time. He looked great and was funny as heck. He's a hoot!
There's a nation full of obese people out there waddling up and down the streets that surely need to belong to Weight Watchers so there's plenty of reasons the company should thrive if they manage things right.
Bull pucky . . . there's enough #$%$ people around to support all of the diet companies. Weight watchers is the best and works best and if you keep with the program and maintain your target weight it becomes free to maintain membership. Such a deal!
be patient and wait, there's a lot of #$%$ people in the world that need Weightwatchers and it's a system that works. I know, I met my goal weight in July, 2012 And have held it since, and it's free as long as you keep your goal weight.
The most common New Year's Resolution is to lose weight and that is coming up again soon. The charts show this stock going up in the first part of the year after all the New Year's Resolutions.
Not true. It's free to maintain membership once you meet your weight loss goal and become a lifetime member. A wonderful incentive to keep the weight off. Taxes in America are not nearly as high as most other modern nations. The Swedish, Norse, Danish, Finish and other European nations are taxed much more, but they get a lot for them. Like education and medical care. We can't even fill our potholes, much
less fix our crumbling infrastructure.
