Paul, aged 57 from Newhall has lost almost four stone after his GP recommended that he join us.

He is waiting for a knee replacement and was suffering with a lot of pain from a work related accident, so losing weight could help with some of the symptoms.

Paul, a former business owner, opted for the face-to-face group support. He said “I joined the group meetings and found them very helpful.

“The classes are good, and the booklet and accompanying information helps you understand food labels and also what is in the foods we eat, good and bad.

“Even though you start as a stranger the group soon all relaxed and joined in. Carly the advisor gives us all the information we need and explains everything in a way that you can understand.”

Since starting our 12-week weight management programme, Paul has made incredible changes to his lifestyle, including losing a significant amount of weight.

“I have so far lost about four stone and I feel so much better. I am walking more and eating less.

“I am limited as to what I can do to manage my weight as walking is still painful - so I am very pleased with what I have done to help lose the weight.

“I recommend trying these groups, and join in. Everyone can improve their health. Thank you Live Life Better Derbyshire.”
