Rumors and Social Buzz Around New WW 2020 Program Changes
I woke up to find an email from the CEO of WW (WeightWatchers) in my inbox today. It announced that Weight Watchers has changed its name to simply "WW" with an exciting new mission of becoming the world’s partner in wellness, not just weight loss. Here are all the details...
Today, people everywhere truly want to get healthy, yet all the data shows that we are actually getting unhealthier. That's the wellness paradox that we at WW want to help solve.
Earlier this year, we shared with you our purpose: We inspire healthy habits for real life. For people, families, communities, the world—for everyone. To deliver on that goal, you’re going to see us show up in different ways and different places over the coming days and weeks. You'll notice a fresh new look in everything we do, and that's just the beginning.
We will always have the best weight-loss program on the planet, but now we're putting our decades of experience in behavior change to work for an even greater mission.
We are becoming the world's partner in wellness. No matter what your goal is—to lose weight, eat healthier, move more, develop a positive mind-set, or all of the above—we will bring you science-based solutions that fit into your life.
As a reflection of our new mission, we are moving from Weight Watchers to WW —a mark that's rooted in the familiar but reimagined to welcome everyone who seeks to be healthier, not just manage their weight.
And because we pride ourselves on offering the world's most effective programs, we are introducing a new statement on what we deliver: Wellness that Works.™

Weight Watchers reimagined
The name WW reflects that they are becoming the world’s partner in wellness.

They are removing artificial sweeteners, coloring, flavoring, and preservatives from all of the food products that carry their brand.
WW does more good in the world.
The goal of WW is to democratize wellness, making it accessible to all. That’s why they believe it’s so important to create ways for underserved communities to access what they need in order to build healthy habits. Their global community impact program, WW Good, exists to bring better health to everyone, without barriers.
I'm excited to see where all these recent announcements lead.

Thank you for sharing this news and information! I'll continue to rely on WW primarily for weight maintenance, even if they're deliberately downplaying the emphasis on weight watching. However, I do think that the focus on building healthy habits is wise.
Are they dropping the point system or just adding other aspects to the program? Also, does the rewards program consider if a person is disabled and can only do so much, which is equivalent to a lot for other people?
Will I still have access to points on foods and daily totals?
