Weight Watchers meetings gaining steam in Incline Village

Special to the Bonanza

Did toy know that Incline Village has its own Weight Watcher meetings?

They take place at the IVGID offices at 893 Southwood Blvd. on Thursdays at noon.

The well-known weight loss program, originally created by Jean Nidetch more than 50 years ago, continues to be the No. 1 Weight Loss Program throughout the country.

“It’s been an amazing series to date,” says Kandie Gallant-Walden, “leader” of this group and a Lifetime Weight Watcher, who has kept 40 pounds off for more than 23 years. “This weekly meeting first started in November 2015, and the members have lost more than 1,850 pounds in just 29 weeks!

“We have three new Lifetime Members, including Steve Pinkerton and Cathy Becker, with several more heading in that direction by the time this second series ends on July 28! These new Lifetime members alone have lost more than 109 pounds combined!”

The Smart Points program helps you eat healthier, get active at your own pace, and discover new ways to define success. This personalized approach fits your life and is backed by real-time support every week. It focuses on you, not just a number on the scale.

The new 17-week series starts July 28 and is not limited to IVGID staff. It’s open to anyone in the area who is ready to come and join.

North Tahoe locals are invited to come see what it’s all about by contacting Gallant-Walden at kandie1121@gmail.com, or simply come to the IVGID office at 893 Southwood on Thursday afternoons at noon on or before July 28 and see Mary McCormick at the front desk (she’s is a member too.)
