Losing weight & maintaining a healthy weight
This can feel really daunting to start with but please remember you are not alone and there’s lots of free help out there! A good place to start is by visiting your GP surgery. They can do an assessment of your general health, discuss a weight loss plan that works for you, and signpost you to local resources to help you achieve your goals.
The NHS has some great resources online to help with weight loss which is free to download. One of these is the NHS weight loss plan which was developed in association with the British Dietetic Association.
The plan promotes safe and sustainable weight loss and is delivered through 12 weekly information packs. Other features of this plan include an activity and food chart to help you record calories, exercise, and weight loss and there’s even an online community to help support you with your weight loss journey.
