Active Weight course – changing lives

Our Active Weight course is receiving lots of positive feedback about the difference it has made to the lives of participants:

‘Over the years I have tried many different diets with various degrees of success, I was always unable to sustain any of them and eventually put on more weight than I had lost.  For the past few years I have continued to gain weight and now with hindsight I realise that I had little understanding of how the food choices I was making.  This time however it is different, and during the past ten weeks I have learnt so much.  As the weeks have progressed I have put into practice everything I have learned and this has resulted in me feeling revitalised and achieving a good weight loss each week.

‘The Active Weight course has totally changed my life.  I have lost 20.5lbs and know that I will be able to sustain this lifestyle and continue everything I have learned.

‘I would also like to say a huge thank you to Paula who as well as making the sessions fun and memorable has imparted her expert knowledge and provided me with valuable facts and information essential for success.  It’s all been so easy, I do not regard this as a diet, there are no counting calories or weighing out food and easy to remember.  I am eating well, I have never felt hungry and I don’t feel that I am depriving myself. I feel great, I have more energy and a lot fewer aches and pains and the realisation has finally dawned that it’s time to start to take care of myself.’

Prior to joining Active West Lancs due to illness, I had become lethargic and become more depressed and became more and more overweight.  It had become a vicious circle.  After joining the programme I had been made aware of the nutritional values in food and how exercise and correct nutrition can help me both in mind as well as body.  This helped me make friends which also gave us a bigger goal each week.  I have changed the way I eat, cook and I am much more careful when I go shopping.  I wouldn’t have done this without Active West Lancs.  My weight loss has made my movement, breathing and health much better due to my healthy eating.

The scheme has been excellent, informative and supportive.  It was delivered in a professional and friendly manner.  It has helped me gain the knowledge and confidence of how to control and lose weight in a healthy managed way, avoiding crash diets that don’t work!  I managed to lose 10lbs over the 10 week course.

Now when I shop I have changed my shopping and eating habits, buying fresh food, cooking from fresh and buying low fat products.  I would highly recommend the course to anyone wanting to find out how to lose weight and sustain weight in a healthy managed way.

The 12 week programme has improved my knowledge of food, drink and exercise.

The benefits have been helpful in improving my overall eating pattern along with portion sizes.

The end result was a weight loss of 6lbs but has encouraged me to continue with the new lifestyle.          Elaine – Skelmersdale

Fantastic course and thoroughly enjoyed every topic which was excellently explained in fine detail by Paula.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to lose weight or just change their diet for better

At the beginning of the programme I was feeling unmotivated, tired and had low body image.  After losing weight I am feeling energised and more confident.  I can walk further without feeling out of breath.I have learned about healthy eating and portion control and am able to make better choices when buying food and eating out.  I am cooking fresh foods more and enjoying cooking again.

I am feeling more positive about my health and losing weight in the future.
