I know. Soooo predictable, right?
Whatever. Getting back in the saddle was rough, but here we are. And strap yourselves in folks, because it is a new year, and Weight Watchers is celebrating a MAJOR milestone in 2013.
That's right. Fifty years ago, Jean Nidetch made it official and turned her little idea into a full-fledged corporation.
Did you know:
- Weight Watcher's first "official" headquarters was located in a second floor loft above a movie house in Little Neck, NY.
- The rent was $75 per month.
- They opened their doors on May 15th, 1963 and over 200 people attended the first meeting.
- The meeting fee was $2.
The party is just getting started!
