Have a Weight Problem?
Sixty people filed into a small
room at 19350 Schaefer for a re-
cent session of the Weight Watch_
ers. As each one entered, she was
ushered to a cubicle for a private
weighing-in before taking her
place in the crowded hall.
Sitting on the platform was Mrs.
Florine Mark, Director of Weight
Watchers of Eastern Michigan, who
shed 30 pounds in four months.
"Last week we lost 98 pounds. In
the past nine weeks, we have most
802 pounds," stated Mrs. Mark.
Weight Watcher's which handles
all weight problems, from 10
pounds and up, has proved highly
successful with people where other
methods have failed. They come to
eat properly and learn to maintain
their loss of weight.
"I never recruit a member .
an individual must want our pro-
gram. Men are reluctant to join —
they joke about being fat, but
once they enroll, they are fast
losers," stated Mrs. Mark.
Weight Watchers was founded
in 1963 by a New York housewife,
Mrs. Jean Nidetch who lost 72
pounds in a year with the group's
therapy. The organization is now
in 15 states.
Re-education of members in their
When It Comes
To Noodles .. .
eating habits is the major goal.
Most over-weight persons have
scads of diets at home. Almost
any one of them will help a person
lose weight, but the real problem
is how to keep the weight off.
Meetings are held throughout
the week and members pay $5.00
for the first meeting, of which
the registration fee is $3.00, and
$2.00 per week thereafter.
The 16 weekly two-hour sessions
include weighing-in, a well-aimed
talk with humor, and frank dis-
cussion by members of their weak-
nesses and problems with food.
After 16 weeks, members who
have lost at least 10 pounds are
given a "medal of honor" a special
Weight Watchers pin and for every
extra 10 pounds lost a small chip
is added to the pin (men get tie
clasps). When a participant has
reached the goal set by her phy-
sician and her mirror, she is put
on "maintenance," and attends
meetings once a month. If she
gains weight for two consecutive
months, she returns to the regular
program. The diet is intended to
be "a new way of life," not a
temporary solution, and the dieter
is taught a new outlook on food.
Weight Watcher classes are held
7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays at the Sho-
lem Aleichem Instiute, and 12:30
p.m. on Thursdays at the North-
land Community Concourse.

'Most of Us Are
Carol Bartholomew is a mother
of six sons. Her home duties have
not interfered with her writing and
her newest work may well be con-
sidered a result of a mother's ex-
periences with her own offsprings.
Her "Most of Us Are Mainly
Mothers," published by Macmillan,
is an entertaining work. It takes
mothers on a tour of their own
roles, reviews how the head of a
household must face up with many
problems, and provides a whole-
some panorama of family duties
What children eat and how they
are fed, their idiosyncracies and
a mother's reactions, the frequent
wandering off, the hurts incurred,
"the battle of the bathroom" and
scores of other occurences — in-
cluding the many likes and dis-
likes — contribute towards the
making of a good work.
"Many of Us Are Mainly Moth-
ers" will entertain and instruct.
It will bring back many fine rec-
ollections for mothers—and for
the children as well. It will equal-
ly delight the male readers. It is
a well written, able collection of
adventures in a wholesome home—
and humorous to boot.
