You might know that losing excess weight, getting more active, quitting smoking, and reducing the amount you drink can improve your health and help you feel better about yourself. I have been made aware of how much food to eat, what kind of food to eat, how to exercise properly and how to set my goals properly. It brought us out, we were able to talk about things and not feel inhibited as it was a closed room. I started out at 147 kilos and I'm now down to 128 kilos. But did you know that the lifestyle choices you make today can decrease your risk of serious illnesses like type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer by as much as 60%? And did you know that there is a team of people across Torbay and South Devon waiting to help you make these lifestyle changes, and double your chances of staying healthy as you get older? Our Healthy Lifestyles team offer a wide range of free or subsidised healthy lifestyle programmes and advice. We can help you to lose weight, get more active, quit smoking, reduce the amount you drink, and just feel better about yourself. It’s never too late to start and access is easy. Just ring us on our local rate number or go to our website. Our specialist team includes dieticians, health trainers, activity specialists and experts in quitting smoking and drinking. And our programmes include personalised and local one to one support, group sessions, and the ongoing encouragement and motivation to help you make positive lifestyle changes, and to keep going when others give up. But don't take our word for it, here's what people just like you are saying: I have been part of the SKIM project and because of that I have been able to to increase my exercise from 2,000 steps a day to averaging between 5,000 and 6,000. And I have reduced from 30 cigarettes a day to 4 in the space of 6 weeks. And today is the day I'm going to give up. The amount of energy I've got, because I really didn't have any energy at all to nothing. And even just inspired to get up and go. A couple of years ago I weighed 22 stone, I was about 18 stone when I joined SKIM and now I'm down to 14. I've seen people come in here and it's just changed their life completely as well as myself. It's just a fantastic place to be. I would recommend it if anyone was looking for that kind of family feeling group support. It’s never too late to start and we can help you to succeed. Start today by calling us on our local rate number or complete the free Healthy Lifestyles assessment on our website.
