Alexis Rose Artis is a mother, WW Digital 360 Coach, and healthy lifestyle advocate. Here’s how she uses Blue Apron Meal Prep and WW to make her healthy choices delicious and fun.
Tell us about your weight loss journey, where were you when you started, where are you now?
After having three children, I’ve lost over 30 pounds with the help of WW. I’m still losing weight by using the tools on the WW app and within the Digital 360 membership. I always say what I love about WW is that I don’t feel restricted and I don’t feel like I’m on a diet. There are no tricks to it- we’re gonna personalize this for you!
Why is it important for you to share your journey publicly?
As a female and a mother I feel it’s important to share my journey so others out there don’t feel alone on theirs. As a WW Digital 360 Coach, I lean on sharing my life experiences & personal weight-loss struggles to help people find their power & purpose.
What does eating healthily mean to you?
For me, eating healthily means having a sense of pride. I’m putting forth the effort to feel good inside which will reflect on the outside. It’s one of the greatest feelings.
How has this changed over the course of your life and weight loss journey?
Growing up, I didn’t have a positive image of healthy eating or wellness. I am so proud that I’ve been able to share what healthy eating and wellness looks like with my three children. These are habits and lessons they will have for the rest of their lives.
How does cooking fit into your healthy eating plan?
I wasn’t always a confident cook in the kitchen. It was a bit intimidating to venture from the typical meat and veggies dish. As I began to explore recipes, my confidence soared and my weight loss journey became fun!
How does Meal Prepping fit into your routine, did you have any experience with it before Blue Apron?
Meal Prepping is a weekly routine for me. After I tried it, I knew it would be the key to my weight loss journey. It takes the guesswork out of knowing what and how much to eat. The major bonus for a busy mom like me is that it’s a huge time saver! Blue Apron has taken that up a notch by having delicious meals, providing WW tracking information and it’s delivered to my front step. Win! Win! Win!
Meal Prepping gives you back time in your already busy day! Having something healthy already planned and prepped makes staying healthy so much easier.
How does Blue Apron change the meal prepping experience?
Blue Apron has changed my world in so many ways. I now have confidence in the kitchen, my kids love to help, and we have leftovers for days, which allows me to enjoy more time with my family.
What made you want to become a WW Coach?
Becoming a WW D360 Coach was a decision I made with pure excitement. To be a part of a community that shares the same values when it comes to weight loss allowed me to feel proud and put my best foot forward. Plus, getting to do CoachLIVE experiences has helped me connect with our members in a way I had never imagined. It’s pure magic! You have to be there to experience it! There really is no right or wrong way to be on a wellness journey, the only way is your way.

How has motherhood changed your perspective on health and eating well?
During my pregnancies it was always a priority that I fed my baby and myself healthy, fresh food. I always made a mental note that I deserved to do the same for myself post-baby. “A healthy you, makes a happy mama”
What’s one favorite healthy snack?
I love Skinny Pop White Cheddar Popcorn! It’s only 5 WW Points for 3 1/2 cups.
What’s one thing you do to promote your mental health?
My wellness routine includes a weekly pamper routine which helps me to focus on my mental health. I run a nice spa-like bath and add lavender epsom salt with my favorite candle burning. This is time for me to let go and release all that is holding me back. This time helps me recharge and reinvigorate!
Blue Apron makes meal prep fun with healthy, easy-to-use meal prep kits delivered to your door.
