A Weight Watching Clusterf- oops!

December 28, 2015

 

 

 

My wife has been in Weight Watchers for many years (doing quite nicely, thanks) and recently learned of the new program WW has rolled out.

 

There have been a few complaints about the new points structure and the removal of the activity points as well as reduction bonus points for the week.

 

Most egregious of all is the favorites (products, recipes, and such) each member kept on the Weight Watchers website to aid in tracking their points have been summarily erased.

 

Yes, it would seem that each person has to re-enter ALL that data again!!

 

But the problem really isn’t that great for many… really! Quite a lot of people have simply exited the program. Hey, how easy was that, huh?

 

WW isn’t too worried, however, because they know the people will be back. Yes, they’ll come crawling back and take the inexorable amount of time to re-input all their favorites, recipes, and so forth.

 

And the best part – at lest for the company – is that the stress all this has caused will create… you guessed it: weight gain!!!

 

Stress is probably the single-most major contributor to weight GAIN and Weight-Watchers has added this vital tool to their arsenal of prolonging memberships.

 

Man! The guys over in marketing are probably getting great big, FAT bonuses this year.

 

You bet!
