Counterweight Groups Coming Soon!

If you have found losing weight and, more importantly, keeping it off, difficult you are definitely not alone – 95% of dieters put all the weight they lose back on in less than 12 months, while 70% of people who come to Counterweight lose weight and keep it off:

The good news is that small changes really can make a big difference to your health (both physical and mental) - and it doesn't have to be complicated - have a look at the short videos on our Healthy Eating and Exercise pages to find out what really is the best diet, and what the single best thing you can do for your health is.

Losing just 5-10% of your weight – about a stone for a lot of folk - has lots of different benefits and can make a huge difference:

Even if you don’t have any health problems, carrying extra weight puts you at risk – getting a bit fitter and losing some weight is a great way of protecting your health.

Counterweight is a healthy lifestyle program focussed on making small, long term changes that help you lose weight and keep it off. You can regain control of your weight for good, by making realistic targets and learning how to change your eating habits and activity levels.

We are going to be running Counterweight groups in local areas – joining a group means you get a lot more social support, working together with others who are making similar changes – having support from friends, family or others in your community really helps in the long run. There are no embarrassing public weigh-ins and you’ll have a chance to speak to us at each session if you’re having any problems. We can also do one-to-one appointments for those who can’t attend a group.

Get in touch with your local Health Improvement practitioner at your health centre for more information – or give the team a call or email for more information.
