"Feeling healthier thanks to Why Weight"

About: City Health Care Partnership CIC / Why Weight?

(as a service user),

I need both knee replacements and was told I had a fatty liver and recommended to lose weight. I went along to St Stephens Centre, a lifestyle centre in Hull. I met there Liz Glenville who helped me lose a stone. Healthy eating, swimming, and determination helped me achieve the weight loss. Liz was really lovely, encouraging, and I couldn't have done it by myself as I've tried. I didn't know about the swimming sessions. I was recommended to eat breakfast, dinner, and tea, and have at least 5 portions of fruit or vegetables. I swapped somethings I was eating for a more healthy option as well and I now feel truly a lot healthier due to weight loss, and don't use my stick and liver is healthier. Thank you.
