WW Frequently Asked Questions
What is Weight Watchers®/WW?
WW is Weight Watchers reimagined.
Our purpose is to inspire healthy habits for real life. For people, families, communities, the world, for everyone. We will always have the best weight-loss program on the planet, and now we’re putting our decades of experience in behavior change to work for an even greater mission. We are becoming the world’s partner in wellness. No matter what your goal is—to lose weight, eat healthier, move more, develop a more positive mindset, or all of the above—we will bring you science-based solutions that fit into your life.
As a reflection of our new mission, we are moving from Weight Watchers to WW—a mark that’s rooted in the familiar but reimagined to welcome everyone who seeks to be healthier, not just manage their weight.
Why is Penn State University partnering with WW?
