My Weight Matters

My Weight Matters at your GP Surgery

Did You Know? From April 2022 – March 2023, a total weight of 982kg (155 stone) across 835 attendees was lost, all reaching their 5% target weight loss* by their 12th week of attendance. 86% said they have improved their physical and mental health, 98% were able to manage their diabetes and 76% are now eligible for surgery regarding their long-term health condition. 

*Your target weight loss is 5% of your current weight. For example, if you weigh 100kg (15 stone 7 lbs), your 5% target weight loss would be 5kg (11lbs)
