Together they came to an idea that losing weight is more about being encouraged by those who cared about changing habits and lifestyle other than just diets. Two attendees of Jean’s meetings, Albert and Felice Lippert, suggested that she set up public weekly classes. In May 1963, the first public meeting of already Weight Watchers incorporation was held in a loft in Queens. Global success of the incorporation encouraged H.J.
