The thing I most enjoy about the programme is the practicality of it. The fact your given advice and stragities that really work and are manageable. They are very simple, for instance the types of food and everything is personalised. The food diary is personalised and the activity programme is personalised according to how you can physically manage it. It's hard to lose weight, but it is possible when you join a programme with other people who have similar experiences and problems. The Specialist Weight Management service operates across Torbay and South Devon, offering a free programme designed to help people lose weight and lead a healthier lifestyle.

They provide tailored support, encouragement and guidance on how to manage your diet, increase your activity levels, cope with the challenges of losing weight, and reduce emotional eating. I thought it was brilliant, it helped me a lot. It's given me a lot of confidence and well it's made me wanting to carry on losing weight and feel good about myself really. The programme for me gave me the tools so it equipped me effectively with how to cope with lots of things. One of the big issues for me is was my weekend alcohol intake and the hidden calories and sugars that were behind them. I mean there was lots of aspects of it. I mean I did mine quite a while ago so it's sort of, you know, it is now included in my lifestyle. I make decisions based on the different tools were given to me then but alcohol has been one of the bigger recognitions I think.
