After lamenting about my weight gain this summer, I've officially decided to give my tried and true diet ally a whirl. Weight Watchers.
I've been a lifetime member since I'm 12 years old so if anything is going to get me to lose weight and keep it off, then it's Weight Watchers or bust.
Plus, if I lose weight in the next several weeks, I can actually do it for a good cause! On September 7, Weight Watchers will launch Lose for Good, a campaign created to empower people to get healthier while also giving back to others in need. The program addresses two global epidemics - obesity and chronic hunger and malnutrition.
For every pound lost with Weight Watchers during a six-week period, beginning September 7 and ending October 18, Weight Watchers will donate the cost of one pound of food -- up to one million dollars. The funds will go to two hunger-fighting organizations: Share Our Strength, which works to make sure no child in America grows up hungry, and Action Against Hunger, which provides immediate and long-term solutions for hunger to people around the world.
