"My weight loss achievement with Why Weight"

About: City Health Care Partnership CIC / Why Weight?

(as the patient),

I was directed to the weight loss service by my GP as I was very depressed about being overweight (19 stone). I have tried slimming clubs, tablets, fad diets and always put weight back on. In December I went to my GP to ask about gastric surgery. He told me I needed to go to the weightloss service first. I did not think this would do any good but I went along and met Alison at the Central Health Centre.

A relaxed and and friendly atmosphere and she showered me small changes, smaller portions, and a balanced diet, no calorie counting and where I was going wrong. I was weighed once a month in my own time. I did not feel pressured and it was a monthly weigh in which also took the pressure off. I have exercised more but not excessively. At my final weigh in I had lost 1 stone 6lbs. The only thing I would change is to extend the time spent on the programme. Thanks to this service I intend to carry on losing weight.
