Half of Weight Watchers lifetime members maintain 5% weight loss for 5 years

Out of 916 lifetime members of the commercial weight loss program Weight Watchers, 80% maintained a 5% weight loss after one year, 71% maintained a 5% weight loss after two years, and 50% maintained a 5% weight loss after five years.
