Jennifer Hudson had tremendous success with WeightWatchers

Numerous medically-based, community-based, or commercial weight loss programs (WeightWatchers) have shown better success than when folks “go it alone.”  Increasingly, workplaces have such programs, often with fun contests – some are social gaming-based.  Instead of “Farmville,” how ’bout “ShapeUp?”
