30 Nov Janet’s Journey to Healthy Weight Loss
Janet’s Journey to Healthy Weight Loss was prompted by a conversation with her GP around chronic arthritis. Janet shares the story of how her experience on the adult weight management course not only encouraged her to lose a total of seven kilograms, but gave her a new approach towards her eating habits.
What I loved the most about the Adult Weight Management (AWM) Programme was that it was a lifestyle intervention not another fad diet.
I had been referred to the AWM program through my General Practice, The Sovereign Practice in Eastbourne. One of the main reasons I joined was due to the chronic arthritis in my knees, which was creating problems with my walking.
I had my initial 121 appointment with my health coach who was really helpful in giving me ideas on which healthy foods to eat in my everyday diet.
I starting acknowledging that the foods that I had deemed to be healthy weren’t actually healthy at all.
I then attended the Bexhill AWM Program in April and found it ‘brilliant, absolutely brilliant!’ Rebecca, the Weight Management Practitioner was extremely professional and continuously motivated everyone, even if you had a week and not lost weight. She is very friendly and approachable and made the sessions very informative and great fun.
I have now starting CRAVING FRUITS AND VEGETABLES which I never experienced before, I now really enjoy eating fruits and vegetables and have a variety of them.
I completed the 10 weeks of the AWM course very successfully, I lost of a total of 5kg and have still continued the motivation to lose an additional 2kg since the completion of the program, It was a huge eye opener for me. Since losing some weight it’s taken the pressure off the chronic arthritis in my knees which I didn’t expect to happen, I also have lots more energy.
