Semcac wellness committee partners with weight watchers and welcomes community members

Posted in All Health & Wellness

Semcac continues to partner with Weight Watchers to better the health of the community. Since January 2013, Semcac staff and community members have joined together as a team to lose 968 pounds! Semcac sponsors the meetings by providing space in Rushford at the Tenborg Center. In addition, with 20 or more people on the team it allows for a discounted group rate. The group meets on Tuesdays at 4:30 p.m. These meetings are open to anyone in the surrounding communities who would like to join! (The group has averaged about 20 people to date.) The team boasts that this is a trusting environment with great camaraderie, resulting in added motivation for the members.

If you would like to get a jump start to your New Year resolution to lose weight, there will be an Open House on Tuesday, December 10 at 4:30 at the Tenborg Center in Rushford. At the open house, you will be able to learn more about the Weight Watchers program and how it can help you to live healthier. You will also be able to meet members and learn about how it has helped improve their lives. 3 of the members of this stellar weight losing group have met their goal weight and have reached Weight Watchers Lifetime status. This means they are Weight Watchers members for life at no charge if they continue to maintain the weight close to their goal.

This successful group would like to renew their membership as a 17 week series. This includes an internet weight loss companion, E-Tools, providing resources and online tips to the members. Members have the option of paying the membership fee in staggered payments within 3 months. The 19 week session comes to under $11 a week.

Semcac Wellness Committee welcomes you to join their Weight Watchers team and better your health!
