Lynne was introduced to the Healthy Lifestyles Service when visiting her GP to get her local health check and asked her doctor if there was a support service available to help her lose weight.
“I felt I was getting too heavy and it wasn’t good for my health. I knew I needed to do something about my weight, especially since I lost my friend two years ago who was quite heavy - I thought now is the right time”.
Lynne admitted she wanted to lose weight to be healthier and live longer. She had tried in the past without much success.
This time around Lynne is having great success and is benefiting from the 121 with her coach resulting in her losing the weight and feeling 100% confident!
“My coach has helped by always being there and encourages me to write down what I have been eating as well as motivating me to exercise. I walk my dog 3 times a day down at my local park and I’ve also taken up dancing”.
Having support on the home front has also helped Lynne stick to her goals and has a friend who is supporting her by eating the same thing she eats as well as making tweaks to her diet to eat more fruit and be healthier all round.
Lynne has lost over a stone and feels a lot healthier. She still wants to lose more as she likes feeling healthier and is going on holiday next year to visit her sister who has been a huge anchor of support as well.
“I would like to say thank you so much to my coach for their support and to the service for helping me lose weight”.
