I am posting this info on my blog at the request of Lose-a-Palooza, considering I’m a lifetime member of Weight Watchers and I believe that program has done me some good, as well as lots of others. The camaraderie at a WW meeting can be fun and helpful. I have a tendency to put on weight, and I need lots of reminders and information thrown at me so I can stay with my original intention not to become larger, larger, and more larger! And with the money raised from this promotion, WW promises to donate to two organizations that fight hunger.
For more info see WeightWatchers.com/LoseforGood
ALSO, AS PART OF THE PROMOTION, IF YOU WILL PLEASE COMMENT ON THIS POST, USING THE WORDS LOSE FOR GOOD TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT~WW is supposed to donate $1 for every comment and post on the social networks and blogs that use the words Lose for Good, up to $60K for the two fight hunger organizations listed at the end of this post.
And (in participating areas, check their website) if you join WW and pay for a month up front, you will get a 2nd month free. Going once a week for a month, or doing the online version for a month, can get you on track to lose that 10 pounds you’ve been lugging around! You might even lose 10 lbs in a month!
The following is copied and pasted from the promotion site:
