Thrive! Weight Loss helps participants to disentangle from the dieting yo-yo to embrace new, healthier lifestyles. After enrolling in an online or in-center plan, classmates each receive a nutrition workbook, online journal, and set of cave paints to supplement and document their efforts to slim down.

They supply everything they need for the job, from vacuums and dusters to a cleanser strong enough to remove a coffee stain that looks like Jerry Mathers from the couch, though not the image of his boyish grin from our hearts. The cleaners work through a customer-created list of tasks; they might dust the shelves, disinfect the bathroom, or clean the gunk out of the microwave. If needed, they can also spruce up garages and clean carpets.
