MARBLE FALLS — People who want a support group to help them lose weight can go to WeightWatchers each Tuesday beginning at 8:30 a.m. at Lakeside Pavilion, 307 Buena Vista in Marble Falls.

“The purpose is not only for people who want a healthy weight,” said WeightWatchers leader Paulette Blake. “If they have an issue, we can put them on the right track.”

WeightWatchers is a lifestyle change, she added, noting moderation is part of the process.

Not only is Blake a leader in the program, she also is a participant after losing 43 pounds in 2003 and has been around WeightWatchers since the 1990s.

Cost is $13 a week or $42.95 for a monthly pass.

“It’s for anybody who wants to learn how to eat and maintain a healthy weight,” Blake said. “Every week there’s a support group to continue to talk about the challenges. We show them exactly how to eat. It’s a really healthy way to lose weight.”
