12 Week Weight Management Programme

WHAT DOES Live Healthier Havering INVOLVE?

We require you to be motivated to making lifestyle changes and commit to attending a weekly 2 hour session consisting of a 1 hour class room based session and a 45 minute low impact physical activity session for 12 weeks.

The class room session covers subjects such as:

  • the eatwell guide and food labelling
  • portion sizes
  • emotional and comfort eating
  • movement
  • making healthy eating and physical activity part of your routine

The physical activity session:

  • caters to all abilities
  • supports your own goals
  • provides a fun and supportive environment for you to increase your physical activity levels safely

You will be offered a confidential weight and measuring service at the start of each session so we can support and track your progress.

Our sessions are led by experienced instructors who develop a great environment and allow time to socialise with other individuals to discuss challenges and success.

We will have a whatsapp or facebook group to help share hints and tips such as activity classes or recipe ideas whilst on the programme.

We require participants to provide us with information which will be used for monitoring and evaluation of their progress throughout the 12 week programme.  On completion of the scheme you will be supported to maintain your weight loss and healthy lifestyle journey.
