WW - Weight Watchers

Weight Watchers have helped millions of people to live more happy and healthy lives over the years. The programme started as regular coffee mornings for people to support each other in reaching their weight-loss goals. Their programme encourages you to enjoy food with freedom, find what moves you physically, and gives you the skills to shift your mindset.‍

How does it work

Achieve Oxfordshire can provide you with a 12-week voucher to attend WW. Once you receive this voucher in the post, you simply take It along to the WW group that you'd like to attend and they will get you set up from there.

The voucher will be valid for 12 weeks from the date of activation (your first session).

Everyone’s weight-loss needs are different. WW’s programme is customised to make losing weight easier for you. Our science-based SmartPoints system is personalised for your age, height, weight, and sex to help you lose weight.

When you join, you’ll unlock a personal assessment that gets to know your eating habits, food preferences, lifestyle, and activity level. Based on your answers, you’ll get matched with a colour (Blue, Green, and Purple) that guides you toward food choices geared for your goals.

Access all the tools you need to succeed—your WW app will be personalised with your food and activity tracker, Connect groups, FitPoints®, WellnessWins, and more.
