Weight Watchers Success Story


Sherry Watts in Plant Operations has been involved in the Vol State Weight Watchers at Work program for just over 14 months and thus far she has lost 60 lbs. She was on blood pressure medication, but the weight loss means she no longer needs that medication. She has met her goal with Weight Watchers and now needs to do six weeks of maintenance for eligibility as a Lifetime Member.

We had a couple of questions for Sherry:

How does it feel to have lost the weight? “I have so much more energy. I feel healthy and I’m proud of myself. Not to mention a new wardrobe! LOL.”

What would you say to people who are considering a weight loss program? “You need to look for a program that provides support. I have tried many different programs in the past, but never received the help and encouragement that I did with this program. I found that meetings, co-worker support and the on-line tools helped with my success. Also, you have a lot of freedom with the program to continue to eat with your family, go out to dinners and enjoy your favorites. It’s all about tracking and planning and it works!”

“I know now that I can live a healthy life style.”

You can start a healthy lifestyle with a visit to the next Weight Watchers meeting on campus, coming up Wednesday, August 29, 2018 @ 12:30pm in the Rochelle Center. For more information, please contact Tammy Swindle via email tammy.swindle@volstate.edu or by phone at 615-230-3472.
