"Thank you to Why Weight in Hull"

About: City Health Care Partnership CIC / Why Weight?

(as the patient),

I joined this group in January 2011, at the Orchard Centre in Hull. I have always had a weight problem and thought that this would probably be no better than any of the usual weight loss places.

From the first weekly meeting I was proved wrong. The ladies taking the group, Raffi and Annette could not have been more helpful. They never once preached about us having to lose weight but set about changing our eating habits and encouraging us to be positive about ourselves.

I not only lost 7lbs, but more importantly because I did take on board all the information given to us, at my last Diabetic Clinic, my Blood Pressure, Cholesterol and Blood Sugar were absolutely spot on.

My thanks and appreciation go to the Why Weight programme. I hope it has changed my eating habits for life. Long may this service last. Thank you.
