Baptist Collierville Weight Watchers group loses 800 pounds

Some Baptist Collierville team members are feeling lighter—in fact, about 800 pounds lighter, thanks to the Weight Watchers at Work sessions.

Many in the group are achieving their greatest success, and since June 6, 2017, four members achieved their goals and reached lifetime status.

“We cheer each other, share recipes, post on our own Facebook page and support each other,” said Rhonda Davis, nursing staff development specialist at Baptist Collierville and on-site coordinator for the group. “And we meet at noon, so staff can weigh in and go, or stay for the optional 30-minute meeting. It’s much more convenient than evening meetings.”

Also, Weight Watchers’ new “Freestyle” program offers 200+ foods with zero points. “It’s easier than ever.”

Having already lost 51 pounds herself, Rhonda says, “This is one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. It’s really changed my life.”

The group will begin its next 12-week session on Tuesday, Aug. 21, and new members are welcome. To join Baptist Collierville’s Weight Watchers at Work group, contact Rhonda at or call her at 901-861-8881.

DON’T FORGET: The BestHealth Wellbeing program is another way you can reach your wellness goals. If you’re a Baptist health plan member, you can download the app and earn up to $300 in gift cards just for practicing healthy habits.

Early next year, BestHealth Wellbeing will launch “Go Healthy.” The free program is similar to Weight Watchers, and it’s open to any Baptist team member, whether or not you’re a health plan member.
