September is a season of renewal. We're recharged from summer, schools are back in full swing, and we're ready to buckle down and get to work. September has the same resetting power as the new year, which makes it the perfect time to start fresh with weight loss resolutions.

The university partners with Weight Watchers to offer benefits-eligible employees 50 percent off Weight Watchers Online and Weight Watchers Monthly Pass for unlimited community meetings. With its Freestyle program, Weight Watchers delivers a holistic and personal approach that meets you where you are now to inspire healthy food choices, help you discover fitness that fits, and fuel inner strength so you can live fully while losing weight.

The program is still based on the company's science-backed Smart Points system that encourages more fruits, veggies, and lean protein, and less sugar and unhealthy fats. New are 200-plus zero-point foods, including eggs, skinless chicken breast, fish and other seafood, corn, beans, peas, and more that you don't ever have to portion or track. And with new rollovers, you can transfer extra Smart Points to another day, keeping the program flexible and livable.
