Manage your weight courses

WEEKLY ‘winning weigh’ weight management classes will start again in Arbroath on Tuesday (August 16).

‘Winning weigh’ is a weight management programme run by trained staff from Angus Community Health Partnership. It will be held at the Volunteer Centre, Guthrie Port, on Tuesday, August 16, between 1 and 2 p.m. and at Abbey Health Centre on Wednesday, August 17, between 2.30 and 3.30 p.m.

The drop-in ‘Weigh and go’ sessions will now take place every Tuesday at the Volunteer Centre between 12.30 and 1 p.m. and between 2 and 2.30 p.m.

The ‘winning weigh’ programme is not a diet; it aims to help people change their eating and exercise habits which in turn will help them to lose weight. It is described as a friendly and interactive course designed specifically for people who are serious about taking on the challenge of losing weight.

Places are limited so anyone who is interested in joining can book a place by calling 07803673564 and leave your name and telephone number.

At each session trained staff will be available offering practical advice and encouragement to help people to adopt healthier lifestyle choices, improve fitness levels and reduce their body mass index.

Ongoing support will be available after the programme is completed, as staff will be running free drop-in sessions where people can just pop-in and be weighed, as well as have a chat.

Keep well health coach Kaye Bruce said: “Winning weigh classes do not just focus on diet, the classes also offer support for people to encourage them to adopt healthier lifestyles.

“The programme is aimed at men and women who have a body mass index (BMI) of more than 25 and will cover advice on eating healthier, eating the right amounts of food for a healthy weight, getting enough exercise and making good lifestyle choices.”
