Weight Watchers is welcoming, motivating, supportive, friendly and great fun and have been helping people to successfully lose weight for over 50 years! Weight Watchers’ meetings are widely available across Southampton and are run by coaches who have successfully lost weight and got healthier with Weight Watchers. They have learnt how to deal with the challenges of changing their lifestyles and are passionate experts in supporting others to do the same.

It is suitable for everyone men and women, young and old from whatever background or community you may come from.
