"A lot happier thanks to Active Lifestyles"

About: City Health Care Partnership CIC / Active Lifestyles Service City Health Care Partnership CIC / Why Weight?

(as a service user),

I asked my GP if I could be referred to the active lifestyle programme. I have just retired and am overweight. The young lady Alison referred me to the water aerobic sessions and the council-run gym in Hull (Ennerdale). I also joined why-weight who helped me with my diet, budget shopping, recipes etc. With the guidance of the active lifestyle lady Alison, and the patience of the gym instructor Martin, and the help from Hamid the water aerobics instructor from the Beverley road baths in Hull, and also the brilliant why-weight team, I have lost almost two and a half stone. I have been able to come off my blood-pressure tablets and can walk a lot further. My social life has improved and I am a lot happier.

P.S. No change necessary in my opinion.
