Weight Watchers Promotion – Code Not Needed! No Fee for Online Program & Free Registration for Meetings!

Lose weight with Weight Watchers

Weight Watchers Promotion –  Code Not Needed

~No Registration or Sign-Up Fees~

**Just a quick reminder that this Weight Watcher promotion is ending on Saturday March 22nd, the last day to take advantage of the FREE registration or no fee for the online program (a savings of $29.95)! So, make sure to sign up by Sat 3/22 if you’re interested in joining Weight Watchers.


I’m sure  many of you are looking for ways to eat healthier after the holiday season and Weight Watchers is a program that I have used several times in the past and I love it because it’s all about making choices & not limiting what you can & can’t eat – you choose what you eat. In fact, my husband and I are signing up tonight and are committing to working thru this program again to get eating healthier, so I’d love to hear any tips you have as it’s been several years since I’ve done this program.

Right now is definitely the time to sign up as they are offering no registration fees for joining the in-person, weekly Weight Watcher meetings (you’ll just pay the weekly fee for the meetings). Or if you prefer to do everything online for Weight Watchers, they are offering no sign-up fee when you join Weight Watchers Online.

Weight Watchers Simple Start Program:

weight watchers simple start plan

If you’re brand new to Weight Watchers, they are offering a new type of plan called the Simple Start plan. This is basically an approach to get you used to trying out Weight Watchers but not having to worry about figuring out points & doing the math for the first 2 weeks. They will provide you lists of foods to eat & meal ideas  & a plan to get you thru the first two weeks. After you finish the Simple Start plan, then you can get started on the full Weight Watchers plan.

Weight Watchers Discount Plans:

Discount for Weight Watchers Online Plan:

If you’d like something easy to do from home & being able to use the  app available to help you stay on track with the plan, check out Weight Watchers Online Plan.

What’s included:

  • No sign-up fees
  • The monthly rate is $18.95 /mo or you can purchase the 3 month plan at $53.85 right now ($17.95/mo).
  • Have access to the mobile app to track everything you eat
  • Restaurant Finder-  find out the points values for your favorite items at popular restaurants (this is so helpful!)

If you still need that weigh-in accountability, it’s helpful to pick a specific day a week that you & a friend or family member/spouse can weigh in & share if you lost/gained to keep you on track. This is how I did Weight Watchers a few years ago with a group of friends, using Wii Fit to weigh each week on the same day/timeframe.

Discount for Weight Watchers Meetings:

If you prefer to go to meetings in person at Weight Watchers, they are offering no registration fee at this time. You will still pay the weekly meeting fee but not have to pay that extra registration fee on top of that. You can find a location by searching with your zipcode at WeightWatchers.com.

The meeting prices range from $13/wk for pay as you go or down to under $10/wk (in my area – make  sure to check out the Weight Watcher online site to see prices in your area)  if you sign up for their Monthly Pass. The monthly pass is discounted right now, too, to just $32.95/mo for unlimited meetings which equals 1 FREE meeting & all the FREE E-tools (basically getting the meetings & online membership all included).

Personally I found the most success going to the meetings as it gives you the accountability you need with the weekly weigh-ins, but also the support from others going thru the program to hear ideas on meal plans, snacks, & more. However, not everyone has time to fit meetings in, which is my struggle. It is also more costly than the online program.

For those of you who have been doing Weight Watchers for awhile, we’d love to hear your tips on what works best for you – great snack ideas, meal ideas & more!

Grass Fed Ground Beef for Sale at Whole Foods – Friday September 13th!

grass fed ground beef for sale at whole foods

Whole Foods will have Grass Fed Ground Beef for sale tomorrow only, Friday the 13th, for $4.99/lb (this is an average savings of over $2/lb compared to their regular prices).

Here is more information I received about the grass-fed ground beef from Whole Foods:

  • Like all of the beef sold at Whole Foods Market, this grass-feed ground beef comes from 5-Step™ Animal Welfare Rated farms, so shoppers can know how the animals were raised for the meat they are buying.
  • Grass-fed ground beef comes from cattle raised on pasture their entire lives.
  • Grass-fed beef is a delicious, typically leaner alternative to grain-fed beef with an intense beef flavor your sure to enjoy.
  • Because grass-feed beef is a bit leaner, it can cook a little quicker. Use indirect heat or lower your oven temperature by 25 degrees when cooking to keep all the tasty juices!

And don’t forget that ibotta is now available to use at Whole Foods if you are looking for more ways to save there.

So, how does this compare to other prices you’ve found on grass-fed ground beef?
