Weight Watchers Meetings are an integral part of the plan’s success. Dieters attend weekly meetings to weigh-in and learn more about proper dieting techniques. Typically, a meeting lasts between 30 and 45 minutes. Weigh-ins are completed in private, so dieters can choose to share weight loss success or weight creep if they desire, but it is not mandatory. There is a speaker at most meetings offering a bit of insight into weight loss and weight maintenance. There is a fee associated with Weight Watchers Meetings. That fee is determined by various factors; including the individual program the dieter signs up for and the whether the fee is paid at the meeting or in advance. There are online meetings available to dieters who cannot access local meetings in person.
