Weight Watchers - Supporting a friend

View Full Version : Supporting a friend

I have a friend who is 450+ pounds and currently unmotivated to shed the necessary weight. She said she would like to attend Weight Watchers meetings because she found them helpful in the past. I offered to go with her for moral support but I am unwilling to pay for the meetings since I do not intend to actively use the group or the tools presented. Do you think a leader would allow me to attend without joining the group?

My immediate instinct is to say "No, they definitely wouldn't", but then....I don't know. I mean, if you didn't intend to weigh in yourself, and didn't take any of the WW materials, and went solely to offer moral support to your friend, I don't see what the issue would be.

It's not like you would be costing them money or anything. I mean, what would they do -- kick you out? (Can you imagine?)

I say, find a location near you (well, preferably the one your friend will be going to! *L*) and just ask them. The worst they can say is "no", right? :)
